The authors state that those who would benefit most from digestive enzymes are older persons, athletes, those with certain digestive orders, those taking acid reflux medication, those with food intolerances and food allergies, those adhering to vegetarian or vegan diets, among others.

While this study focused only on protease, most digestive enzyme supplements contain enzymes for carbohydrate and fat absorption, among others.
