Similase and Similase Jr: – What’s The Difference?

Written by Wellness Club on July 10, 2008 – 12:48 pm -

We get a lot of product questions – and digestion and digestive enzymes make up a large part of those questions. There is no doubt that this important physical function is poorly understood – even by most doctors. No wonder so many lay-people are confused!
Here is an example of a recent question, with Dr. Myatt’s answers:
Dear Dr. Myatt:

Many digestive enzymes are on the market now to digest gluten and casein. Will Similase and / or Similase jr. digest gluten, gliadin, and casein?

Also, I would like to know the difference between Similase and Similase jr?

Thank you.

Dr. Myatt replies:

Yes they will, but if you know that you or "Jr." have a decided sensitivity, then Tyler’s newest product, Similase GFCF, might be a better choice. You can learn more about this new product here: Similase GFCF

120 capsules retail for $25. We don’t have this product listed on our website (it’s brand-new), but we can get it in for you in 2 days.

Basically, the difference between Similase and Similase Jr.  just a dose consideration. Small people don’t need as high a potency as big people! And the capsules are a smaller size, easier for small people to swallow.

Follow this link to our website to see the exact list/amounts of ingredients of Similase

And follow this link to see the ingredients and amounts for Similase Jr.

You’re most welcome! Hope this answers your questions satisfactorily!

In Health,
Dr. Myatt

Nurse Mark adds: Be sure to also see our website for more information about indigestion and food allergies!
