This review of Nature’s Sunshine Food Enzymes examines the potential of this product relieving the uncomfortable symptoms associated with irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS. The Manufacturer claims that this product supports the digestion of proteins, carbs, and fats in order to prevent and occasionally relieve indigestion. We shall review the ability of this product to support IBS by examining the following:
- Betaine HCl
- Bile Salt
- Alpha Amylase
The above enzymes are formulated for promoted digestion; with papain suited for protein, alpha amylase suited for starch, and lipase for fat digestion. The other ingredients support an acidic environment to assist the enzymes in digesting these foods. Pancreatin is added to aid the functioning of the pancreas. These have been known to help relieve some of the issues associated with IBS like indigestion and irregular bowel movements. However, the formula seems to be lacking ingredients such as peppermint and aloe vera which soothe irritated bowls, reducing pain and cramps. These lacking ingredients may be a concern for customers with a sensitivity to these symptoms. There is no mention of third-party testing or abiding by GMP guidelines on the product page or the packaging, so the quality production of this product is uncertain for us to say.
Take 1 to 2 capsules before or with a meal, 3 times a day (supporting the digestion of breakfast, lunch, and dinner). 1 capsule has the capability to digest 30 grams of protein, 30 grams of carbs, and 20 grams of fats; so be sure to adjust the number of capsules (1 or 2) based on the portion size. There is no mention if customers should be cautious of exceeding the recommended daily dose, but we advise to stay on the safe side and consult your medical physician before use.
Customers can purchase a bottle of 120 capsules of Nature’s Sunshine Food Enzymes directly from the manufacturer’s website. A bottle will cost you $29,65. There is a membership offer available that claims to offer discounts up to 33% for orders over $40,00 – but we are uncertain as the time it would take to sign up for a membership as well as the depth of information required. The manufacturer offers a trial pack of 20 capsules that retails for $27,75 – which is poor value for money. The customer has the option to donate $1 to charity upon checkout, which is sweet. However, there are limited opportunities for the customer to save money as there is a lack of package offers available.
Nature’s Sunshine offers a 90-day full money-back guarantee from the date of purchase, which showcases great confidence in the product quality. Furthermore, this policy is extended to opened and used products which allow customers the opportunity to test the product for themselves. However, upon additional research, we found a few negative customer reviews that complained that the product was ineffective or had little noticeable impact on IBS symptoms. Some customers even noted unwanted side-effects such as heartburn, burping, gas, irregular bowel movements, and stomach ache.
Nature’s Sunshine Food Enzymes Review – Conclusion
Nature’s sunshine is confident in this product’s efficacy, offering an extensive guarantee. This product appears to be a sufficient digestive aid, having a variety of ingredients that support effective digestion. However, the product appears to lack additional soothing ingredients that serve to relieve all symptoms associated with IBS – such as cramps and pain. There are many customer reviews that expressed this product as ineffective or causing unwanted side-effects. Thus, we do not recommend Nature’s Sunshine Food Enzymes as the desired IBS supplement for you when there are so many all-inclusive IBS products available on the market.
