In the stomach, After Ate helps break down your food into smaller pieces, helping your stomach digest more efficiently. This reduces the feeling of fullness that lasts for hours.
Helps digest food in the small intestine
In the small intestine, After Ate helps digest food even further so that macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins, fats) can be broken down into its simplest forms, so that the body can absorb these nutrients. When your body is able to break down macronutrients effectively, you’re getting the most value (like vitamins and minerals) out of your food.
Less gas and bloating
When food is digested properly in the stomach and small intestine, it reduces the amount of undigested food that makes it to the large intestine, where bacteria could ferment it and produce excessive gas. This means less bloating and overall discomfort.
After Ate Digestive Enzymes FAQs
What are enzymes and how do they work?
Enzymes are naturally occurring substances in our bodies and our food. In terms of digestion, enzymes work like little scissors to cut your food into smaller pieces, making it easier and faster for your stomach and gut to process (and for your body to convert into nutrients).
Our bodies naturally produce digestive enzymes. However, biological factors such as age and genetics can affect how your body makes enzymes and what types it produces. For example, when you have a food intolerance, your body produces a low amount of a key enzyme specifically for digesting that food. When food is not broken down when it passes through the intestines, the bacteria in your colon ferment the undigested food, and the result is belly pain, cramps and gas.
After Ate is designed to supplement the enzymes that your body may not be producing. Because everybody is different, everyone has different enzyme needs, so a broad spectrum formulation helps ensure that all your bases are covered.
How do enzymes work with probiotics?
Can I take After Ate if I’m gluten-free or lactose-intolerant?
After Ate contains Protease 20,200 HUT & 50 SAPU and Lactase 1,000 ALU, which can help in mild cases of gluten or lactose intolerance (meaning trigger foods make you gassy).* If you have moderate to severe intolerance, you should consider supplementing with a product with a higher dosage. As with any supplements, always consult with your healthcare provider before using.
How is After Ate better than other digestive aids?
After Ate is an enzyme supplement designed to provide immediate indigestion relief that many people experience after eating a big meal or consuming foods that cause digestive sensitivities. Unlike popular indigestion and gas relief products, After Ate targets a different root cause of the problem by helping your stomach break down food effectively so that your body can get the most nutrients out of your food.* Because everyone has different intolerance triggers (dairy, broccoli, red meat), it contains a broad spectrum of digestive enzymes to help break down carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.*
