I sometimes have a growling stomach that is loud enough to entertain others and even do magic tricks at parties.  It’s always embarrassing to hear the rumbling start and so I always try to eat or drink something before an important meeting just to keep those hunger pangs from crying out from deep within my belly.  After one recent eruption during an important, and Church-mouse quiet meeting, I decided I needed to do a little research on why my stomach growling was giving me so much grief.

I was surprised to learn through my research that a growling stomach has absolutely nothing to do with being hungry.  In fact, a growling stomach is an indicator of stomach satiety because the sounds you hear are the food and air and built-up gasses of what you just ate moving through your intestines.

The worst thing you can do to cure stomach growling is to eat more food!  You’re just fueling your gassy, intestinal, fire!

Then I happened upon the Thropp’s Nutrition site and found a product there called “Elite-Zyme Pro” that some medical student friends of mine recommended I try to remedy the growling.

If your stomach growls, there’s something in your diet that is causing that intestinal consternation.  I think my guilty parties are onions and garlic — and having the right enzyme balance in your gut can help cut down, or even eliminate, that growling grossness.

Here’s the PR Blurp for Elite-Zympe Pro:

This is a full spectrum high potency formulation capable of aiding in the digestion of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, sugars, fibers, and dairy products. Our enzymes are produced in an Organically Certified facility that is FDA inspected. Our product contains no fillers, yeast, dairy, wheat, soy, gluten or corn and is free of artificial colors, flavors and preservatives. We use the highest quality raw materials to produce superior results. Researchers have discovered that processing or cooking food, kills virtually all of the digestive enzymes that were once in it. Undigested food can cause many health imbalances that can lead to a variety of issues.

Here are some of the conditions Elite-Zyme Pro might help address:

  • Heartburn
  • Constipation
  • Bloating
  • Chronic Illness
  • Lactose Intolerance
  • Gas
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Acid Reflux
  • Food Allergies
  • Overall Health
  • Weight Loss
  • Energy
  • Burping
  • Diarrhea

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been taking one Elite-Zyme Pro pill before each meal to help with digestion — and sometimes I take a pill on an empty stomach just to do a little “enzyme maintenance” throughout my day — and I am thrilled with the results.

I feel better.

I have no more growling stomach.

I’m a guiltless, gut-free, noiseless, man!

Enzymes are a powerful part of our diet:

Question: Why are enzymes so important in living cells?

Answer: Enzymes are important because they act as biological catalysts.  This means that they bring molecules together in such a way that they can react. All of the reactions that they catalyze are chemically possible (at least in theory) even in the absence of enzymes. However, in the absence of enzymes, these reactions could not occur fast enough to support life.

Enzymes are also delicate and easy-to-destroy, so beware of eating “enzyme inhibitors” like whey protein and nuts as a part of your diet.

Eating peanuts and pistachios and other nuts and/or whey protein can render any enzyme ineffectual — including Thropp’s Nutrition Elite-Zyme Pro! — and if you eat nuts and/or whey, you risk being stuck with a growling gut, even if you spend the large money to go on a righteous diet regimen of Elite-Zyme Pro pills!


  1. I think this is definitely something I need to get ahold of. Enzymes are so important, but you don’t think they can be as easy as taking a pill. I like that.
