About this blog

Amanda Swann, Enzyme EssentialsWelcome to the Enzyme Essentials blog! I’m Amanda Swann, owner and daughter of Enzyme Essentials’ founder, Fred Brison. What will you find on this blog? Posts about new products, enzyme research, links to health and/or sustainable food issues and articles, recipes, and whatever else seems to pique my interest! You can also follow me on Twitter @enzymelady. 

Enzyme Essentials was founded by my dad who became an “enzyme evangelist” after meeting Dr. DicQie Fuller-Looney and learning how essential digestive enzymes are to achieving and maintaining optimum health. At the time, Dr. Fuller’s Transformation Enzyme products were only available to health care practitioners and he wanted everyone to be able to benefit from these fantastic digestive enzyme supplements. So he brought the company, Enzyme Essentials, online in 1998. In 2003, Fred lost his battle with cancer and since then I’ve taken over the daily operation of the company. A true family business!

I believe in our digestive enzyme products and take many of them myself and have for years. I think our products are the best and most pure digestive enzyme formulas on the market and so does Dr. DicQie Fuller-Looney who endorses our company. Enzyme Essentials benefits from the customer-focused attitude of a small business combined with the years of research and clinical experience of Transformation Enzyme Company – a great combination for excellent customer service and superior products!

    Hi there. I am researching leaky gut syndrome. My husband (50) was diagnosed with MS 20 yrs ago. He struggles to walk. He is on a ketogenic diet (70% good fats and 30 % nutrient dense veggies and berries) for the past 8 months and recently visited a functional medicine doctor. His labs showed he is deficient in most nutrients, despite his high nutrient dense diet besides taking many bioavailable dietary supplements! which may be why his body is unable to heal. So since his labs point to leaky gut syndrome, some internal infection, and possible yeast overgrowth; i’m trying to learn how to heal his gut. Any information you might instruct me with would be greatly appreciated!

    I already take enzymes but I need more help digesting dairy. What product do you offer that would help?

      You would need more Lactase. Our Digest product is a great one for helping digest dairy.

    I do take enzymes but it seems that dairy is causing excessive mucus in the back of the throat.

    My husband recently underwent the Whipple procedure where a part of his stomach, head of the pancreas and part of the duodenom and the galbladder is removed due to cancer. He can’t seem to put his weight back on even though he’s eating well . I’ve been reading that he needs a good balanced enzyme to help with proper digestion. What do you suggest?

      Hello. I hope your husband is recovering well. We usually suggest working with an enzyme practitioner if you have complex medical issues. You can call our manufacturer Transformation Enzymes at 1-800-777-1474 to ask about a practitioner if your area.
