Smidge® Digestive Enzymes (formerly GutZyme™)

Introducing our Digestive Enzymes, a clean and comprehensive supplement to help you digest your food comfortably. So your body can absorb even more of the nutrients on your plate — without cramping, bloating, gas or constipation.*

And, if you're new to a real food diet rich in healthy fats (hello, fat bombs!), we've got your back. These enzyme capsules have three types of lipase that help digest fat.

They also include enzymes to help digest complex carbs in gassy foods like beans, cabbage and broccoli, and starchy foods like oats and rice. Their DPP-IV enzymes support the breakdown of casein and gluten.

As always, Smidge® Digestive Enzymes are free of additives and common allergens, and made in small batches

Our customers say Smidge® Digestive Enzymes are a must-have travel companion. And good to tote to parties or dining out, where you likely won't know the ingredient list for those cute hors d'oeuvres.

What do Smidge® Digestive Enzymes Capsules do?

These little enzyme capsules may help ease common digestive symptoms from tough-to-digest foods, like cramping, bloating, gas and occasional constipation.*

Here's how.

Your body produces enzymes, which break down food into energy in the gut. Think of each of the parts needed for digestion, like the mouth, stomach, pancreas and intestines… each secretes these essential enzymes.

When your body isn't producing enough enzymes (or if they're late to the sweet potato party), your food cannot fully digest. This can lead to myriad health issues like gas, bloating, indigestion, occasional diarrhea and constipation, prolonged intestinal imbalance, dysbiosis, and other more severe inflammatory conditions.

Our enzyme capsules work in your tummy to help properly digest your food before it travels through the rest of your gut.* So your small intestine doesn't get loaded with your entire Paleo cauliflower grilled cheese — and your body can absorb all of those healthy nutrients :)

Dosage

Our Digestive Enzymes can be used regularly to help with digestive issues or as an occasional supplement for hard-to-digest meals.

Always start with a smidge!  Take one capsule daily with food, Then take two capsules together, as directed by a certified healthcare practitioner. (See "low and slow" note below.)

For children and sensitive adults, a smaller dose may be obtained by pulling apart the capsule and taking a portion of the contents.

Warning: Smidge® Digestive Enzymes are not recommended for children under the age of 3, unless otherwise prescribed by a physician. Also, please avoid if you have mold sensitivities, an Aspergillus allergy, or a compromised immune system, as the enzymes are derived from Aspergillus (fungus) via fermentation.*

Start low and slow: Smidge® supplements are premium, pure and potent. Therefore, it's critically important to start slowly, with a lower dosage than recommended. For example, a very small dose every other day, or even once a week, until you can determine how the supplement affects your body and what dosage feels right for you.

Storage

Store in a cool, dry area, away from direct light.

Vegetarian Capsule

Amylase

The digestive enzyme amylase, found in saliva and pancreatic fluid, helps convert starch and glycogen into simple sugars.*

Glucoamylase

A digestive enzyme naturally released by the small intestine. It helps break down carbohydrates and starch found in most veggies, for easy absorption by the body.*

Invertase

This digestive enzyme is found in our mouths, and starts the process of chemical digestion. It also helps break down sugar into fructose and glucose.*

Lactase

A digestive enzyme in the small intestine of humans and other mammals. It's essential to the complete digestion of whole milk, as it breaks down lactose, a sugar which gives milk its sweetness.* 

Maltase

This digestive enzyme is present in saliva and pancreatic juice, yeasts, bacteria and plants. It helps break down maltose and similar sugars to form glucose.* Maltose develops in many starchy vegetables like sweet potatoes, nuts and legumes when they're digested or cooked. 

Alpha-Galactosidase

The digestive enzyme alpha-galactosidase is naturally found in green coffee beans, and several other plants and mammals, including humans. It's been shown to reduce gas production following a meal rich in fermentable carbs by breaking down the sugar-fat complexes commonly found in hard-to-digest foods like broccoli, cabbage, peanuts and beans.* And it may be helpful in patients with gas-related symptoms.* 

Beta-Glucanase

Beta-Glucanase is a group of carbohydrate enzymes which breaks down bonds within beta-glucan, found in heavy grains like oats, barley and rye as well in fungi like candida.* 

Phytase

This digestive enzyme is a key to bone health.* Commonly found in plant material, it helps break down grains, legumes, seeds and corn. 

Protease Peptidase Complex

One of the few digestive enzymes found in the pancreas and the stomach that helps with the breakdown of proteins like gluten and casein, rich in the amino acid, proline.* They also play a vital role in blood clotting and cell division.* 

Lipase

This digestive enzyme — produced in the pancreas, mouth and stomach — helps break down dietary fats so the intestines easily absorb them. It also allows nutrients and waste to move through cellular walls.* 

Cellulose (base for encapsulation)

Cellulose is a naturally occurring substance (ie a long chain of sugar molecules) that's an important cellular component of green plants. We chose this ingredient to satisfy the needs of our most sensitive customers. 

Vegetarian Capsule

Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), water. Our vegetable (vegan) capsules consist of only two ingredients: HPMC and purified water. HPMC is derived from vegetable cellulose of either pine or poplar. 100% natural, these capsules contain no preservatives, no gelatin, wheat, animal by-products or starch. 

Amylase

Amylase

The digestive enzyme amylase, found in saliva and pancreatic fluid, helps convert starch and glycogen into simple sugars.*

Glucoamylase

Glucoamylase

A digestive enzyme naturally released by the small intestine. It helps break down carbohydrates and starch found in most veggies, for easy absorption by the body.*

Invertase

Invertase

This digestive enzyme is found in our mouths, and starts the process of chemical digestion. It also helps break down sugar into fructose and glucose.*

Lactase

Lactase

A digestive enzyme in the small intestine of humans and other mammals. It's essential to the complete digestion of whole milk, as it breaks down lactose, a sugar which gives milk its sweetness.* 

Maltase

Maltase

This digestive enzyme is present in saliva and pancreatic juice, yeasts, bacteria and plants. It helps break down maltose and similar sugars to form glucose.* Maltose develops in many starchy vegetables like sweet potatoes, nuts and legumes when they're digested or cooked. 

Alpha-Galactosidase

Alpha-Galactosidase

The digestive enzyme alpha-galactosidase is naturally found in green coffee beans, and several other plants and mammals, including humans. It's been shown to reduce gas production following a meal rich in fermentable carbs by breaking down the sugar-fat complexes commonly found in hard-to-digest foods like broccoli, cabbage, peanuts and beans.* And it may be helpful in patients with gas-related symptoms.* 

Beta-Glucanase

Beta-Glucanase

Beta-Glucanase is a group of carbohydrate enzymes which breaks down bonds within beta-glucan, found in heavy grains like oats, barley and rye as well in fungi like candida.* 

Phytase

Phytase

This digestive enzyme is a key to bone health.* Commonly found in plant material, it helps break down grains, legumes, seeds and corn. 

Protease Peptidase Complex

Protease Peptidase Complex

One of the few digestive enzymes found in the pancreas and the stomach that helps with the breakdown of proteins like gluten and casein, rich in the amino acid, proline.* They also play a vital role in blood clotting and cell division.* 

Lipase

Lipase

This digestive enzyme — produced in the pancreas, mouth and stomach — helps break down dietary fats so the intestines easily absorb them. It also allows nutrients and waste to move through cellular walls.*

FAQ

Why are digestive enzymes so important?

Enzymes are essential for healthy digestion and a healthy body. They work with other chemicals in the body, such as the stomach acid and bile, to help break down food into smaller molecules for a wide range of bodily functions critical for life.* 

When we're healthy, digestive enzymes are secreted along the digestive tract to break food down into nutrients and energy and then eventually be secreted out into waste matter. In other words, you can't live without them!* 

What types of food contain digestive enzymes?

You can find digestive enzymes in fungi, plants and in raw and cultured foods like yogurt, kefir, kimchi and other fermented veggies. 

Are Smidge® Digestive Enzymes safe for children?

Yes, but run it by your doc first. Smidge® Digestive Enzymes are safe for children 3 and over. For toddlers and sensitive adults, a smaller dose may be obtained by pulling apart the capsule, taking a small portion of the contents and mixing with food. 

Warning: Smidge® Digestive Enzymes are not recommended for children under the age of 3, unless otherwise prescribed by a physician. Also, please avoid if you have mold sensitivities, an Aspergillus allergy, or a compromised immune system, as the enzymes are derived from Aspergillus (fungus) via fermentation.* 

Why isn't my body producing enough digestive enzymes?

First, run this important question by your certified medical practitioner. 

When your body doesn't produce enough digestive enzymes (due to an increased consumption of highly processed food and chemicals), diseases of the stomach and small intestine begin to occur. Once the number and types of digestive enzymes produced naturally in our system are diminished, digesting food and fighting infection may become more challenging. 

You may be able to improve digestive issues with the help of a quality enzyme supplement like Smidge®, in addition to removing sugars, grains, processed dairy, and industrial vegetable and seed oils from your diet (as directed by your practitioner).*  
 

Where are the ingredients sourced and where is the supplement made?

Our Digestive Enzymes are sourced and produced in the U.S. :)

What are the enzymes derived from?

The enzymes are derived from Aspergillus (fungus) via fermentation. For this reason, we do not recommend the product for individuals who have an Aspergillus allergy, mold sensitivities or a compromised immune system.* 

As always, consult with a certified medical practitioner, preferably one familiar with gut health, before starting any new supplement. 

What's the difference between Smidge® Digestive Enzymes and Smidge® HCl + Enzymes?

Smidge® Digestive Enzymes is a digestive supplement for people who have adequate HCl levels but want to maximize their absorption of fats, proteins and hard-to-digest carbs. It includes all the same enzymes as Smidge® HCl + Enzymes, plus additional enzymes to support the digestion of beans, cruciferous veggies and other carbohydrates. You can even open up the capsules to consume, since it does not contain HCl. Smidge® Digestive Enzymes are a great choice for the whole family or those new to enzymes to support comfortable digestion and nutrient absorption. 

Smidge® HCl + Enzymes is our original formula that contains HCl (hydrochloric acid) and pepsin. It's ideal for people who have occasional acid reflux, gas or bloating and seek a gentle dose of HCl and pepsin with their digestive enzymes. Many of our customers following the Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) diet or other real food protocols that call for restricting grains and carbs take it, as it helps with the breakdown of meat and animal proteins.* It also helps restore HCl levels and maximizes the absorption of fats, proteins and minerals. 

Many of our customers have both on hand depending on what’s on their plates!

Can I use Smidge® Digestive Enzymes with Smidge® HCl + Enzymes?

Yes! Smidge® Digestive Enzymes can be used in tandem or sequentially with Smidge® HCl + Enzymes, which contains HCl and pepsin. Some customers start with Smidge® HCl + Enzymes and then move onto only Smidge® Digestive Enzymes after their HCl levels are up. Some use the two in tandem for different meals over the same day.

Tell me more about the DPP-IV enzymes and how they support the breakdown of gluten.

Dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) is one of the few enzymes that can help with the breakdown of proteins like gluten and casein, rich in the amino acid, proline.*

Most health experts recommend using it as a safeguard if you're worried something may contain gluten or casein.* In other words, the DPP-IV enzymes in Smidge® Digestive Enzymes capsules serve more as an additional safety net than as something that can reverse the gluten or dairy challenge you're facing.*

    Perfect

    I used this several months but discontinued my subscription thinking I could find a cheaper alternative.

    Trust me when I say this, you'll want this in your life! Nothing else works for me- this enzyme is top shelf! I now have it on autoship for digestive support from stress and hormonal issues. Try it for yourself and see/ feel the difference- your tummy will thank you.

    So far so good! Digestion & reflux seems to be improving

    I’ve only been on this for just a couple of weeks but so far I do think it’s helping me. I have suffered with terrible silent respiratory reflux & IBS since getting Covid in 2022. Nothing was helping me feel better & nearly all foods made me sick!! I was in terrible shape health wise & lost a lot of weight and became anemic. A few days after using this I noticed my digestion has been better. I’m starting to use the bathroom more normal & without pain . My reflux is not as intense either after I eat certain foods if I even have it at all . I do notice foods are agreeing with me now. I’m expanding my diet more each day. I’ve even gained some weight finally. I went from 1 pill to now starting 2 pills at once starting today. Fingers crossed . I’m very excited to see if things get even better. I’m hopeful. So far I have not experienced any bad side effects. I also take the sensitive probiotic daily and I’ve been on that for over a month. The two Combined I think has been wonderful for me. At least so far. We’ll see how I am in another month then I’ll really know. I’ve been on a PPI for my acid reflux over a year now & my prayer is to get off of them completely if possible. Time will tell.

    Amazing product

    I am a mother of 2, a 14yr old and a 9yr old. After having my children i have ALWAYS had bowel issues. I know for a fact for the last 9 years my bowels have always been inconsistent and I’d go as far to say for a quite a few of those years i was going once a week. I took a probiotic as a part of my supplement intake but never experienced consistency. I’d take a fiber supplement as recommend by doc but it all never worked. About a year ago i was on an Instagram account i follow and she was posting about how it may be beneficial to take a digestive enzyme instead of a probiotic and recommended Smidge. So i tried it. And it has been life changing. It took a little bit to get regulated but for the first time in YEARS, i am having bowel movements every single day and sometimes twice a day. I know this might sound TMI but i am sure there are other people and especially mammas who have this issue. I 100% recommend.
