Product Description

WHAT IS UDO’S CHOICE® ADVANCED ADULT ENZYME BLEND? Our highly effective Udo’s Choice® Advanced Adult Enzyme Blend is a mixture of plant- and microbe-based enzymes whose job it is to break down foods into their basic nutrient building blocks. We designed this special blend to provided people who care about health with a reliable way to maximize absorption of nutrients from foods and to provide relief from the digestive issues—and their discomforts—which are prevalent today. The absorbed nutrients are used for the construction and repair of the trillions of cells in our body, or broken down to supply the energy we need for this cellular construction and repair.

WHAT ARE DIGESTIVE ENZYMES AND WHAT DO THEY DO?In a perfect world, two sources of enzymes break down our foods. First, enzymes are naturally present in raw foods, and do part of the work (experts have estimated 10-90%, depending on the kind of food). Second, our body secretes digestive enzymes from various locations throughout the digestive tract (salivary glands, stomach, pancreas, and small intestine), which complete the work of digesting foods. Our reality, however, is different.

Because the enzymes naturally present in raw foods are heat-sensitive, they are destroyed as soon as we cook or process our foods. This places an added burden on our bodies during the digestive process. In addition, overeating (which dilutes enzymes and overtaxes production capacity), as well as not chewing our foods thoroughly (which fails to properly jumpstart the digestive process), further complicates things. When these unintended consequences catch up with us, they may cause problems, like missing out on key nutrients, weakened cells and tissues, and absorption of undigested foods. Symptoms such as pain, bloating, gas, swelling, inflammation, and immune reactions may follow. Compromised and weakened by poor digestion, our immune system may not be able to do some of its other jobs.

Udo’s Choice® Advanced Adult Enzyme Blend provides a complete spectrum of digestive enzymes required for optimum digestion, which is necessary to build a healthy body. It meets the needs of advanced adults who eat all the major food groups and/or who may suffer from lactose intolerance, and those who want maximum support of digestive function and minimum digestive problems.*

You’ll find Udo’s Choice® Advanced Adult Enzyme Blend in brown glass bottles, on the shelf of the supplement section at your local whole foods market or natural food store.

WHO IS UDO’S CHOICE® ADVANCED ADULT ENZYME BLEND DESIGNED FOR? Digestive enzymes are required for health, to optimize the complete digestion of our foods at all stages of the human life cycle. Digestive enzymes break down proteins, fats, carbohydrates, milk sugar, legume sugars, and cellulose (fiber), freeing nutrients for absorption in the body. The available nutrients can then be used to support the natural functioning of cells, tissues, glands, and organs and, as a result, support healthy cardiovascular, brain and nerve function, and much more. It is also designed for anyone who: A) eats cooked and/or processed foods; B) suffers from weak digestion; C) wants to ensure complete digestion of what they eat; D) overeats; E) inadequately chews; F) is lactose intolerant; G) has problems digesting cruciferous vegetables and/or legumes; H) suffers from gas, bloating, and abdominal discomfort after eating.*


65+ years old


The key ingredients in Udo’s Choice® Advanced Adult Enzyme Blend include amylase (helps to digest starch); even more lipase (to digest fats and oils); high bromelain and proteases 3, 4.5, and 6 (to digest proteins); lactase (helps to digest milk sugar); more alpha-galactosidase (helps to digest sugars in cruciferous vegetables and legumes); and cellulase (helps to break down cellulose).


Take 1 or 2 capsules with each meal, depending on need. For best results: Open capsule(s) and mix in foods or blended drinks (juices, smoothies). If you overeat and your stomach hurts, take four capsules for rapid relief.

Udo’s Choice® Advanced Adult Enzyme Blend should never be added to foods too hot to eat, as extreme heat will destroy them. Once foods are cool enough to eat, enzymes are compatible with all foods.


Udo’s Choice® Advanced Adult Enzyme Blend is shelf stable, as long as its contents stay dry. In hot/humid climates, it helps to keep Udo’s Choice® Advanced Adult Enzyme Blend in the fridge.

    Have been using this for a long time – like the results

  2. Justin

    I have been using Udo’s Choice Digestive Enzymes for about 5 years. Following a Gastric-bypass surgery and a follow up operation a year later my ability to digest foods was limited. I tried different brands but none were as effective as Udo’s Choice. There is a ton of information on all of the Enzyme Blend products they sell so you know exactly what you are taking and why. I wouldn’t buy anything else, period.

    Really helped my husband with leaky gut.

  4. Ms. Fran

    I have tried other enzyme formulas – this one really works for me. I have problems with my stomach and this really helps with digestion issues for me. I prefer this formula over others I have tried.

    Using these for years and years… Great blend, better to get the Advanced if your system is stubborn or metabolism is slow – but you should read which enzymes are in which proportion (protein, carbs, fats) to best decide depending on what you actually eat!

  6. Katrin Kasper

    After being a vegetarian for over 25 years and then my kids being born and raised vegetarian, when we had to start to eat meat for a medical condition none of us could digest it. Just taking one of these with the first bite of meat and we feel great! Easy to digest, no aches and pains, we are so thankful!

    My favorite digestive enzyme of all! Works great! I wish it was a little less expensive though.

  10. Betty

    I love this product. it does wonders for my gut.

    Not a very sexy review. If you are taking digestive enzymes, or you are considering it because the ole GI just doesn’t work as well as it used to, this is a very solid, proven product. From a deductive reasoning standpoint, this is one of the first product areas to attempt as you work to get your system “working like it used to.” Enzymes are safe and fairly non-intrusive, working with your system, instead of against it like Imodium. Give it a Try.

  12. Daniel

    I was first introduced to this though a health food store. I decided to try the advanced version (this version) because of the lactase support. It has made a huge difference. I’m on my 3rd bottle and I can honestly say I won’t try another brand. None of the other supplements come close to the ingredients in this one.

  13. Alexios

    Very good produce that helped me a lot. Very good quality!

  14. Pauline

    This is a great working enzyme blend. No heartburn when I use it. Take it with the first bite of your meal.

  15. Hobo

    I have been taking Dr Udo’s Adult Enzyme for years, but thought I might try this also. I have been taking two capsules daily in addition to my regular Adult Enzyme. It has made a notable difference. Things are moving along quite nicely through my 69 year old male body

  16. Leanne

    This product has changed my life. I can’t eat dairy or soy yogurt. I dislike rick milk and almond yogurt. This product give me all I need. If I go a day or two without taking it I sure notice a difference. If you have IBS, bloating etc. this is a must for your survival kit.

  17. SherylB

    I had gas constantly. Very embarrasing, especially in exercise class. This has taken away 90% of my gas problem. It has the key ingredient that Beano contains, but doesn’t have all the other unwanted ingredients that are in the Beano formulation.

  18. Marcella

    My daughter has stomach issues and this seems to help, especially with lactose intolerance. She is watching what she eats more now but takes this on occasion when she eats something that she knows will give her a problem.

  19. Ian

    This product was highly recommended to me by my trainer, who believes digestive health is super important. I had my gallbladder taken out years ago and I thought I was doing just fine without it. It did take about a week for me to notice anything, but this product healed things I apparently had gotten used to. I used to be very flatulent… that has been reduced about 90%. I also don’t have to “go” eight times a day any more.

    I can’t recommend it enough… I’m about to finish my first bottle and have ordered two more. I’m 41, but trainer recommended advanced adult over adult, so I don’t think you need to be over 65 to use it.

    Do yourself a favor and BUY IT!

  20. Corena

    I am so glad that I found this product. It really works for me and for my grown daughter better than anything else we have ever used.
