Looking for your best recommendations (or ones to stay away from!) for digestive enzymes and/or probiotics. Need effectiveness & cost-effectiveness as well. I've done the Now Super Enzymes in the past and they were good, just wondering if there's anything better out there.

Humans have a limited set of digestive enzymes:
- Protease (for animal protein)
- Lipase (for lipids)
- Lactase (for dairy proteins, like casein)
- Cellulase (to break down plant structures
- Amylase (for simpler carbohydrates)
AFAIK, Now Super Enzymes is the cheapest way to get most of those (no lactase in there). Lactase supplements are quite cheap, especially if you have a Costco or Sam's club warehouse store in your area.
Cheval also offers a good suggestion to stimulate your body's production of hydrochoric acid, which also breaks down protein.
