Direction of Use


When should I take Wobenzym®N?

We recommend that you take Wobenzym ®N on an empty stomach at least 30 minutes prior to your next meal or at least 2 hours after your last meal.

The Wobenzym®N tablets need to be swallowed with a glass of water making sure not to chew the tablets. This will prevent damage to the enteric coated protective layer of the tablet. This coating allows the tablets to arrive at the small intestine where they can be effectively absorbed.

Can I take Wobenzym®N with any liquid?

No, in order for Wobenzym®N to function properly it should be taken with a glass of water at room temperature or below. If Wobenzym ®N is taken with a warm to hot liquid such as coffee or tea the enteric coating on the tablets may be compromised. Taking the tablets with milk may disturb the absorption of enzymes within the small intestine.

What is the appropriate serving size of Wobenzym ®N?

The recommended serving size for the maintenance of good immune and circulatory function is three (3) tablets. However, this can be increased as recommended by your healthcare practitioner.

How many servings should I take per day?

The recommended number of servings per day for the maintenance of good immune and circulatory function is twice (2) per day. However, this can be increased as recommended by your healthcare practitioner.

Why do I have to take so many tablets?

Enzymes are rather large protein molecules. As such only small percentages are absorbed and pass through the intestinal wall and reach the bloodstream. Therefore, the quantity of tablets consumed is crucial to ensure adequate absorption.
