These supplements contain in masszymes produced from plants or animals, such as the protein-digesting enzyme bromelain, which is found in pineapple. While they may carry labels promising they’re natural and safe, they could come with potential side effects and medication interactions. For example, bromelain could interact with blood thinning medications.


Digestive enzyme supplements also could interact with antacids and certain diabetes medications. They may cause side effects including abdominal pain, gas and diarrhea.


“These over-the-counter supplements aren’t regulated by the FDA and we don’t know whether they’re safe or effective,”says , a gastroenterologist at Weill Cornell Medicine and New York-Presbyterian. “We don’t have good data on dosing and there’s always a chance that there are impurities.”


There also isn’t evidence to back up claims that these over-the-counter enzyme supplements can promote weight loss, improve digestion or help with food allergies. Promises of the latter are particularly concerning because taking the supplements could be dangerous. You should avoid foods you’re allergic to or that your body cannot tolerate rather than relying on an untested supplement to undo any harm.
