Are digestive enzymes safe during pregnancy? On the Enzymedica site they I found this quote "Dr. Roy Dittinan suggests that pancreatic enzymes should not be taken during pregnancy or when using blood thinners".
Anyone have any knowledge on this? Thanks

there are prenatal vit with digestive enzymes in them....ex. rainbow light brand. I really liked it as I had an upset tummy all the time. It is like papaya enzymes in there. I would have to hear more about why not to take them.

Hmm, I've not heard that before. You might try to do a little more research on it, or speak with a naturopath or OB to see if anyone knows more about why. I can't imagine that papain (found in papaya) or bromelain (found in pineapple) could be harmful, since pregnant women eat those foods and therefore take in those enzymes regularly. I have a great product I love called Digestive Enhancement, but that one has quite a few different enzymes in it. You might try to stick with just the papain and bromelain while pregnant. I would think that would be safest.
