What is Autism? – Autism and Systemic Enzymes

The rigidity of the lifestyle changes necessary to manage autism has led to an increasing use of digestive enzymes as a means to alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life. Certain proteolytic (protein digesting) enzymes have been identified to have extremely beneficial actions when applied to this condition. Digestive enzymes, taken with each meal, enter into the small intestine. Enzymes can then assist in the proper break down of food into nutrients and waste.
