Going off the enzymestuff website, what is the best(from your knowledge or experience):
1. Broad-spectrum ennzyme,
2. The best strong protease enzyme,
3. The best probiotic
4. The best yeast targeting enzyme(such as candex)
I think I will answer this differently since my experience this week.1. Broad Spectrum Enzyme:
Hands down, Houston trio: AFP Peptizyde, Zyme Prime, No Fenol. Digest Gold is very very good, but it doesn't have what Houston's does. I'm feeling now I never should have switched DS for convenience b/c I'm now sure he needs the No Fenol and that is why some of his food intolerances are still present. Well not really the ultimate cause but ykwim.2. Protease Enzyme:
Houston AFP Peptizyde or Enzymedica Virastop depending on issues. If viral issues are likely the latter might be better for between meals b/c of the serrapeptidase.3. Probiotic:
If you can tolerate dairy: homemade yogurt with super strains (Natren yogurt starter plus spiked alternately, one batch with one, one batch with other, of the following: Natren Megadophilus, Natren Life Start) OR
homemade kefir using live grains or the Body Ecology powder grown in raw milk. If dairy free, Pharmax human strain probiotics.4. Yeast Targeting Enzyme:
Can't really say which is best. Either Candidase, Candex or No Fenol. The Candex really worked for me quickly when I had thrush but I didn't test the others in the same way so cannot say for sure.
