Our team of naturopathic doctors & gastroenterologists are here to help.
How do I take Digestive Essentials?
Enjoy 1-2 chewables with your biggest meal.
We recommend taking no more than two chewables in one sitting or on an empty stomach While there is no indication that taking more chewables poses any safety or health risk, we recommend not exceeding a maximum amount of 8 chewables per day.
When should I start to feel something?
Digestive Essentials’ benefits kick in at the first meal thanks to
our digestive enzymes, and probiotics provide long-term benefits
over weeks to months. Our digestive enzymes & our herbal blend
immediately improve nutrient breakdown from many of the foods you
eat (i.e. more bang for your buck from your meals), and also can
help you enjoy a slice of pizza or a plate of fibrous veggies
without developing bloating or gas that makes you run to the
That being said, don't panic if you don't feel a difference in the first few weeks. Many of rmdy's ingredients, primarily the probiotics, are aimed at improving your long-term digestive health. Your internal ecosystem could be growing stronger and more resilient every day and you wouldn't even know!
Does Digestive Essentials replace my probiotics?
Digestive Essentials can absolutely be taken alongside, or as a
replacement for other probiotics. If you’re already taking
probiotics we recommend comparing doses and strains as it’s possible
that Digestive Essentials could even complement your current
Digestive Essentials uses four of the most researched probiotic strains to improve microbiomes and gut function. If you’re curious about the ingredients and probiotics strains we use, feel free to take a look at our ingredients page.
How do I store Digestive Essentials?
Keep your jar in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. Cabinets, pantries, and counters are great! To preserve the probiotics, we recommend keeping your Digestive Essentials in the original jar they came in. Leave it in a place that reminds you to take your Digestive Essentials each day to stay on track.
Do the probiotics in Digestive Essentials survive stomach acid?
Yes, they do! Our manufacturer has conducted several studies, showing that the pre+probiotics in our Digestive Essentials are clinically proven to survive passage through the stomach and grow/thrive in the small intestine. One particular study found that our all-star probiotic, DE111® Bacillus subtilis grows in the small intestines within hours after consumption!
Are there any side effects to Digestive Essentials?
As with any new diet, product, or change, your body may experience a
temporary acclimation period. In the first 3-5 days, you may feel
some gastrointestinal discomfort, mild nausea, or changes in your
stool. This is very normal.
An immediate physiological reaction is a sign that the probiotics and digestive enzymes in Digestive Essentials are viable as they move through your GI system. Any discomfort should subside within the first one to two weeks.
Because all bodies have their own responses, we highly encourage and recommend that all customers go over their supplements and any effects they experience with their doctor(s).
If you experience negative side effects, our recommendation is to discontinue use of the products and consult a healthcare professional if the symptoms continue. If you do experience any adverse reactions, please let us know by emailing email@example.com
Can I take Digestive Essentials if I’m pregnant or breast feeding?
There’s currently no evidence to suggest that Digestive Essentials is unsafe to take during pregnancy. However, we always suggest checking with your primary care physician first.
Can my kids take Digestive Essentials?
Digestive Essentials was designed for adults but many of our users
share chewables with their kids who love it and report benefits. In
fact, the probiotics in Digestive Essentials have been clinically
proven to promote a healthy microbiome and digestion in young
We typically recommend 8 as the minimum age to take rmdy. If you have any doubts or concerns we recommend checking with your primary care physician first.
Why did you include stevia?
Great question! We wanted to bring joy and ease to taking care of your health, hence our delicious chewable format. We explored countless options to give our chewables the taste our users adore and turned to stevia as it’s a delicious natural sweetener, not made synthetically in a lab, and won’t raise your blood sugars like regular sugar can.
Can I take Digestive Essentials if I have IBS?
Yes! Digestive Essentials was designed to prevent bloating and stomach discomfort. Many of our customers suffer from IBS and report benefits in the form of symptom relief.
Does Digestive Essentials help with constipation and diarrhea?
Yes! Digestive Essentials is clinically proven to support regularity and help protect against occasional constipation or diarrhea.
Is Digestive Essentials FDA approved?
By law, the FDA does not approve dietary supplements. However, at rmdy, our products are manufactured in accordance to the FDA’s current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs), which help ensure quality and safety.
Can I take Digestive Essentials with other supplements or with prescribed medication?
As always, please discuss all your medications and supplements with your health care provider before starting. Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're unsure or need further guidance.
Does Digestive Essentials help with lactose intolerance?
Yes! One of the digestive enzymes in Digestive Essentials, lactase, is specialized in the breakdown and digestion of lactose - a milk sugar present in dairy products. Because lactose has been shown to be so difficult to digest, lactase supplementation shows tremendous potential to help improve digestion as a whole, particularly following the consumption of milk sugar as present in milk, cheese, butter, yogurt, ice cream and other foods. Two of our chewables contain the same dose of lactase as certain varieties of Lactaid and some customers have reported that Digestive Essentials are helpful in regards to lactose intolerance.
