FODMAP Digestive Enzymes
FODMAP Digestive Enzymes is designed for short-term use to help support the digestive health of individuals with IBS, Crohn's disease, and other digestive disorders with symptoms triggered by high FODMAP foods. FODMAP Digestive Enzymes can provide relief from occasional cramping, bloating, gas, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and constipation that may result from the consumption of high FODMAP foods.
FODMAP (Fermentable Oligo-, Di-, Mono-saccharides and Polyols) sugars can cause symptoms in people who are not able to digest them. These undigested carbohydrates can cause fermentation and osmosis, increasing fluid in the large bowel, which can lead to symptoms like gas, diarrhea, and pain.
An enzyme supplement can be helpful in allowing you to eat food that contains FODMAPs. Multi-carbohydrase enzyme supplements that contain amylase and glucoamylase, cellulase, lactase and invertase and other enzymes break down FODMAPs so they can be absorbed into the small intestine. This prevents the FODMAPs from being used as food by colon gas-producing bacteria. Depending on the severity of your FODMAP intolerance, supplementation with FODMAP digestive enzymes may be helpful.
