Reflex Nutrition’s use of Digezyme® has largely revolved around its use as an aid to help digest milk sugar (lactose), especially important for those individuals who experience difficulties digesting it.

However its role extends beyond aiding the digestion of lactose. Digezyme® consists of 5 enzymes which in addition to aiding the digestion of lactose can also digest carbohydrates, protein, fibre and fat. You will find Digezyme® in a variety of Reflex Nutrition’s products, the common dosage being 40mg-50mg per serving.

Interestingly with regard to sports nutrition Digezyme® has recently been the focus of a double blind placebo controlled study relating to delayed onset muscle soreness which can be seen in the OMICS Group – Sports Nutrition & Therapy website.

You can also download the research article Multienzyme complex for the management of delayed onset musclesoreness after eccentric exercise a randomized double blind placebo.

The dosage used in the study was 50mg three times per day which can be quite easily achieved through use of a number of Reflex Nutrition’s products.

We included this range of enzymes in the Reflex Nutrition range well over ten years ago because of their completeness. They offer all of the enzymes needed via a very clever fermentation process which results in enzymes which are completely GMO free. We’ve had nothing but praise for Digezyme® over the years as greater numbers of consumers understand more about their function and application.

The following products in the Reflex Nutrition range contain Digezyme®:

There is little this man does not know about supplements during his 20 years in the business.
