Your body’s digestive system can be confusing to understand at times. You may have trouble controlling when you are hungry or not‚ or possibly you feel full after eating only a little bit of food‚ or maybe you find yourself still ravenous after eating a big meal. These issues‚ as much as you may try and control them by adjusting your lifestyle‚ may continue to give you trouble. Everybody has a different personal metabolism‚ and there are many factors at play in your body that dictate your digestive preferences other than‚ say‚ what the last time you ate was.

Promoting a healthy fat metabolism‚ therefore‚ may seem like a daunting task. How should you know exactly how to help regulate your system? Eating healthier may be a possible solution to attempting to regulate your system‚ as well as regular and safe exercise. Another way of helping your body control your digestion is with an enzyme supplement like Lipase (Formula 5) by Ness Enzymes. Lipase helps to facilitate the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients in the body when taken with meals‚ and also digests the fat from the food you eat. When taken in between meals‚ lipase has the ability to help break down any undigested fat that exists in the bloodstream.

So‚ what is lipase‚ and how does it accomplish helping out the body in a time in need? Lipase is an enzyme‚ whose main body role includes transporting and processing dietary lipids. Lipids are naturally occurring small molecules that have biological functions of energy storage and cell membrane structural components. Molecules that fall under classification of being a lipid include fats‚ waxes‚ sterols‚ and fat-soluble vitamins. Fats‚ which are commonly grouped together as a synonym of lipids‚ are actually a subcategory of lipids that are called triglycerides. Lipids also include in their umbrella fatty acid molecules‚ as well as metabolites‚ which includes cholesterol. By working in the digestive system‚ and after transporting the lipids‚ lipase catalyzes the breakdown of the lipids. After the fats are broken down‚ they are ready to be sent to the body’s intestines. Through this process‚ your body’s inner systems can be helped along by the increased absorption function.

Lipase (Formula 5) is a fully vegetarian as well as gluten free and dairy free product. It also does not contain any aspartame‚ sugar‚ salt‚ or artificial coloring/flavoring.

Each 90-capsule bottle of Lipase (Formula 5) by Ness Enzymes should last for about 1 month at the recommended dosage of 3 capsules with or between meals taken with liquid‚ or as directed.

For over 20 years‚ NESS has been dedicated to providing enzyme based nutritional supplements. Using extensive clinical research and proven formulas‚ NESS is able to supply you with some of the best enzyme supplements on the market.

      I needed a low dose lipase to take with a medication to help increase absorption. I've used this product for the past 11 months and my lab levels are normal.

      nice stuff

      from Seattle WA on 11/03/2019
      Lipase is the enzyme that helps my digestion the most. This was the first time I tried a Ness product and really liked it. Very clean and did a good job of helping me with fats.

      Great help in digesting fats

      from New York, NY on 12/21/2018
      I've just started using this Lipase (Formula 5) by Ness Enzymes, and so far it seems to be a great help in digesting fats I couldn't ordinarily tolerate. I experienced no side effects, the cost is reasonable, and I can control the dosage, taking it as needed.


      It works as advertised, produces no side effects, is reasonably priced, and enables me to control the dosage according to my needs.


      Nothing. This works just as I hoped it would.

      I think Lipase (Formula 5) by Ness Enzymes has been somewhat helpful for me. It's kind of hard to tell though. I do like that the capsules are small and easy to swallow.

      The only brand straight lipase I can fin

      from Ut on 9/12/2016
      Lipase (Formula 5) by Ness Enzymes has helped me a lot. I have done a ton of stuff digestively over the last 5 years including GAPS diet, tons of supplements, bentonite clay. Truthfully, I can't even begin to list them all because I've spent over $16,000 trying to heal my gut. Lipase alone won't heal me. But I do find it to be important and I have had more improvement with this than with most other things. I take 2 with meals also with a digestive enzyme (digest gold), ox bile, HCL, and fermented cabbage juice, and I feel a lot better and not nearly as bloated after I eat. I added in lipase to my regimen on its own so I know it helps. But it doesn't help that much if I leave it the other stuff, especially ox bile. Digestive problems are complicated so good luck!

    • Adjustable Dose.

      from Ohio on 2/24/2016
      I like that you can adjust your dose by taking more than one pill of Lipase by Ness Enzymes when needed. I think I will look for something a little stronger to minimize the number of pills I take.

      Worked for me very well

      from NJ on 6/27/2014
      I tried these for the first time last month. I had been getting a more expensive brand. These worked just as well and I saved some money since I need to use these 3 times a day.
