Will taking enzymes make my digestive system lazy?
No, the pancreas adapts to any type of food that is consumed. Supplemental enzymes are support tools used to help assimilate food and the body adapts to these enzymes. However, the simple presence of food in the stomach will always trigger the production of enzymes, whether or not supplemental enzymes are used.
