A 29-year-old female asked:

Could taking digestive enzymes help with gas bloating and constipation?

Possible.: Worth a try. Other thoughts would be to use simethicone for the bloating then a stool softener for the constipation. Sounds like you might have irritable bowel syndrome which is too complicated to treat here but generally responds to a progressive program of fiber / diet mods / bowel agents.
