What’s the SUPPLEMENT FACTS label look like?
Do you really take this product?
Everyday. I’ve been using some form of a protease product since 2012 and I find it helps reduce gas after some meals, which is pretty great.
Is more better?
I’m not sure to be honest. I’ve taken tons before and it works. But so does taking the suggested serving size of 1-2 per meal. I’d rather save money and help with the digestion of many meals over the course of a time period than overdo it, so I actually stick to the recommended amount for this supplement.
How do I know it’s working?
I feel better after a meal (less gas is a big one).
Any tips for getting the most out of this?
Yes. If you’re a meat eater, I recommend taking this with meals containing a lot of meat. The bio-availability of a good protein powder is already very high, and many protein sources these days are pre-digested, so the best use of this product, in my opinion, is with meat meals. If you’re really trying to save cash, then just take a few capsules after very big protein meals. For example, after a Mongolian BBQ binge. 😉
So will this make me absorb all the protein I eat?
No, because if you consume 1000 grams of protein in a day and your body only turns over about 150 grams, then you’ll still excrete the rest even if you’ve helped turn it into highly bio-usable amino acids.
Can’t I just eat more protein?
How in the world will eating more protein help you digest and absorb more protein? That’s like saying the solution to getting a fire started with no kindling is to throw more heavy wood on it. The fire is gonna start when you break down some of that wood for kindling. The assimilation of protein into new tissue is gonna start when you break down some of that protein into bio-usable forms.
Can’t I just eat more protease containing foods?
It would add calories to your diet and it would be impossible to intake the amount of protease contained in this supplement through foods. Of course protease containing foods are almost always very healthy foods so it’s never a bad idea to include more of them. You can do your due diligence by researching online and asking for opinions, which I’ve done, and I’m sticking to tactical protease supplementation with my largest protein meals by adding a few of these ProHydrolase pills in here and there.
