When systemic enzymes are used in conjunction with intermittent fasting, a synergy of benefits exists. Practicing intermittent fasting for periods of 16 to 18 hours can improve immune system support, increase human growth hormone, and better equip the body with a better source of fuel for the brain and body in the form of ketones. Intermittent fasting has also been shown to improve hormone signaling as well as to stabilize blood sugar, and increase fatty acid metabolism.
High dose enzyme therapy is best recommended for individuals who use intermittent fasting to heal. In order to be most effective, systemic enzyme therapy must take place outside a period of food consumption.
The best time for enzyme supplementation is during the morning when most people can fast on cleansing herbal beverages and lemon water. Furthermore, it is also recommended to go to sleep on a stomach that is not trying to digest and absorb nutrients from a meal too recently consumed before bedtime. If you are not a morning faster, high dose enzyme therapy may be more appropriate for you before bedtime.
