If you experience symptoms related to IBS such as fatigue brought on by digestive problems, heartburn, cramps, loose stool, constipation, gas and more, you are not alone – tens of millions of Americans suffer from digestive complications or issues which affect their quality of life. Our review focuses on Ultimate Design Solution, a plant-based enzyme formula to greatly aid digestion. Enzymes are required to break down all food types in the body – when this does not happen properly, it leads to bloating, constipation and/or diarrhea and gas. It is important to supplement these enzymes in your body as you get older regardless of how good your digestion is, because your body produces less with age.
Health Labs calls their formula a ‘maximum strength’ one. It is particularly geared towards high-protein diets but the digestive enzyme amylase is also present. Amylase is used to break down carbs so the formula has not excluded enzymes for any particular food type.
Why plant enzymes and not animal ones? The body can be both alkaline and acidic or more of one than the other, so the enzymes offered in a formula must be able to work in both conditions. Plant enzymes can do this.

Amylase is an enzyme that helps digest carbohydrates, whereas a protease is essential to breaking down proteins. Lipase is an enzyme residing in the pancreas that breaks down fatty acids. On the other hand, cellulase is critical to breaking down cellulose. Lactase helps you digest dairy and sugar properly – this is why those with dairy allergies are called lactose-intolerant. From an analysis of the first few ingredients a pattern emerges: a wide spectrum of digestive enzymes to help food pass properly through the digestive tract in a normal manner, and out as waste once the nutrients have been absorbed.
Take one or two capsules before meals – you can take them any time, but before meals is best for digestion. If you experience a side effect such as loose stool at first, consult a doctor if it persists. There are almost no other known side effects.
Increase your dosage slowly by one capsule count at a time if you feel no different or don’t get results, but do not take more than 6 capsules per day.
One bottle of 60 capsules costs $29.99. If you go for the super saver option, it will cost you $79.97. This is a buy 2, get 1 free offer. However, you can also buy 3 and get 3 free for $119.97.
There is a 90-day 100% money-back policy in place. It calls its guarantee ‘risk-free’. However, this appears to be a gross misrepresentation as the bottles have to be unused and unopened when you return them. This leaves you with no window period in which to test whether the capsules are working for you. It is a strange way of conducting a ‘risk-free’ returns policy.
Health Labs Nutra Ultimate Digestion Solution Review – Conclusion
Navigating the world of digestive concerns and remedying them is a minefield – it takes constant management and observation of what works and what doesn’t. Although these enzymes address a core digestive issue, the formula should offer a multi-prong approach to ensure better-than-average results. This remedy rests on one thing: the digestive enzymes only. It is hard to say if they will work for every individual given that each person’s digestive make-up is so individual. Were it not so, diseases such as IBS, wheat intolerance, diverticulosis and celiac disease would have been something of the long past. Still, these enzymes are a critical start.
The manufacturer does seemingly make some claims out of thin air though – more elucidation on the product website and/or inserts are required. The big drawback of this product is that there is, essentially, no guarantee despite what the manufacturer says. Consequently, this in fact does make it a risky product.
