    What will Chocolate Smooth Move® do for me? Chocolate Smooth Move provides gentle relief of occasional constipation. Senna leaf promotes bowel movement by direct action on the intestine.* How do I know it works? A single serving provides an effective dose of sennosides from senna leaf, which have proven stimulant laxative action and are generally recognized as safe and effective by the U.S. FDA. When should I use it? Drink one cup preferably before bedtime. Repeat the next day if needed. Chocolate Smooth Move will generally produce bowel movements in 8 to 12 hours. How does it taste? Delicious; reminiscent of chocolate, pleasantly roasted and nutty.

    Health Notes

    Digestive Enzymes

    Digestive Enzymes
    • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
    • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
    • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

    Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

    For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

    This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

    Used for AmountWhy

    (Trypsin, Chymotrypsin)
    4 to 8 tablets a day of proteolytic enzymes containing trypsin and chymotrypsin, and/or bromelain3 stars[3 stars]

    Low Back Pain

    (Trypsin, Chymotrypsin)
    4 to 8 tablets a day of proteolytic enzymes containing trypsin and chymotrypsin, and/or bromelain3 stars[3 stars]
    Supplementing with a combination of the enzymes trypsin and chymotrypsin may improve low back pain.
    Pancreatic Insufficiency
    Consult a qualified medical practitioner3 stars[3 stars]
    Digestive enzymes are the mainstay of pancreatic insufficiency treatment and have been shown to reduce pain and steatorrhea associated with pancreatitis.
    Sprains and Strains
    4 to 8 tablets a day of proteolytic enzymes containing trypsin, chymotrypsin, and/or bromelainas Proteolytic Enzymes3 stars[3 stars]
    Proteolytic enzymes, including bromelain, may be helpful in healing sprains and strains because they are anti-inflammatory and appear to promote tissue healing.
    Celiac Disease
    Consult a qualified healthcare practitioner2 stars[2 stars]
    Some evidence suggests that enzyme supplements may be useful at the beginning of dietary treatment for this disease.
    Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
    Consult a qualified healthcare practitioner2 stars[2 stars]
    Lipase, a pancreatic enzyme, aids in the digestion of fats and may improve digestion in some people.
    Osteoarthritis
    90 mg of bromelain and 48 mg of trypsin, with 100 mg of rutosid, taken in enteric-coated pills three times per day2 stars[2 stars]
    In one study, people with painful osteoarthritis of the knee who received an oral enzyme-flavonoid preparation saw more improvement in pain and joint function than those who took a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID).
    Tendinitis
    Several tablets per day of proteolytic enzymes2 stars[2 stars]
    Supplementing with digestive enzymes may reduce the severity of symptoms and speed healing.
    Acne Rosacea

    Digestive enzymes have been reported anecdotally to improve rosacea symptoms.
    Allergies and Sensitivities and Food Allergies
    Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
    Proteolytic enzymes may theoretically reduce allergy symptoms by breaking down undigested protein to sizes that are too small to cause allergic reactions.
    Chronic Candidiasis
    Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
    Digestive enzymes inhibit the overgrowth of candida and prevent it from becoming established in the small intestine.
    Crohn's Disease
    Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
    Supplementing with enzymes might improve the nutrient malabsorption that is often associated with Crohn's disease.
    Low Back Pain
    Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
    Several trials have reported reduced pain and swelling, and/or faster healing in people with a variety of conditions who use papain.

    Digestive enzymes are complex proteins involved in digestion that stimulate chemical changes in other substances. They work optimally at specific temperature and pH. Digestive enzymes include pancreatic enzymes, plant-derived enzymes, and fungal-derived enzymes. There are three classes of digestive enzymes: proteolytic enzymes needed to digest protein, lipases needed to digest fat, and amylases needed to digest carbohydrates.

          I use this product when feeling constipated. I have not been diagnosed with anything yet, but have a lot of problems with getting "blocked up". I drink a cup of this at night and by morning I am "unblocked" and feeling great again!! I would highly recommend this. Great that is all natural too!
