Multi Enzyme Complex Supplementation Relieves Symptoms of Dyspepsia

Functional dyspepsia (FD) is characterised by a collection of symptoms that may include bloating, nausea, heartburn, burping and post-prandial fullness. 1 A multienzyme complex was evaluated to investigate its effects in adults with functional dyspepsia. 1

Methods: 40 adults diagnosed with FD were enlisted in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group trial. Subjects were administered either a multi-enzyme complex three times daily or a placebo over a 60 day period.

Results: Supplementation with a multienzyme complex was significantly associated with reductions in all indicators of efficacy compared to placebo. Findings suggest multi enzyme supplementation was shown to be both a safe and effective in managing symptoms associated with functional dyspepsia. 1
