Wine can cause a headache like this - although would not be expected to last so long.  Women sometimes get headaches like this that are premenstrual, so could be.  Allergies can also cause a headache.  Could also be that you just had a headache for some random reason like a chemical you came in contact with or a low-grade virus.  Unfortunately, so many things cause headaches it can be very hard to tell. The easiest way to tell if it was related to the enzymes or the wine would be to "challenge" them.  This is...

Q: 

Anyone try a Probiotic such as Align and plant enzymes?

A: I have taken Align for a month and didn''t see any improvment. I am thinking of trying VSL#3 next though. I haven''t tried the enzymes. I have heard that Digestive Advantage for ibs making their D worse. The doctor told them to try Digestive Advantage for Chrons and it seem to help them, however I have never tried either one. I am ibs-d with anxiety and I take immodium and Lomotil at the moment. What is lomotil and what does it do? Lomotil helps with colon spasms and relaxes the gut. It also seems to take the edge off of stressing about the urgency. In my experience Immodium works just as good but without the side effects. I get tired when I take the lomotil but I like the calming affect it has. I have been on VSL#3 for 2 months now, 2 packs a day. Doesn''t seem to...


Q: 

What Are the Different Types of enzymes in Food?

A: enzymes are proteins created by cells to trigger biochemical reactions. They are catalysts for specific chemical reactions that produce or process food. While enzymes in food occur naturally, enzymes in food also are put there by the food industry to do such things as make bread rise, provide flavor to dairy products, and help extract juices from fruits and vegetables. Their use is increasing for several reasons, including their relatively low cost and natural roots that make them popular with consumers who donít want a bunch of unpronounceable chemicals in their foods. Many enzymes in food appear in commercial baked goods. The enzyme amylase is often used to strengthen the quality of the...


Q: 

What is Enzyme Therapy?

A: Enzyme therapy involves the administration of enzymes into the body to treat disease, deficiencies, and other conditions. enzymes are macromolecules that speed up biological processes in the body and work to digest food, cleanse the blood, break down toxins, strengthen the immune system, reduce stress in the pancreas, and build protein muscle. In other words, enzymes make things happen. Enzyme therapy, also known as systemic enzyme therapy, is used to treat a variety of conditions.

Q: 

How Do I Choose the Best Bromelain enzymes?

A: When choosing the best bromelain enzymes, one of the first things to consider is the key physical symptom or problem to be remedied. That will quickly begin to establish which bromelain supplements are best. If digestive symptoms are at the top of the list, then a different potency of bromelain might be used than if one has suffered a broken bone or a nasty muscle strain with bruises. If garden-variety indigestion is the issue, then low-dose chewable tablets would offer adequate digestive support. If skeletal or respiratory symptoms are creating nagging problems, however, then a 500-milligram (mg) or higher potency enzyme mixture should offer some relief. Bromelain is a sulfur-containing proteolytic enzyme. In its fresh form, itís found in the juice and stems of...
