Having tried other digestive enzymes, I say with confidence, this is a great enzyme to take. I've suffered with IBS for years. Not any more! Plant based enzymes such as these are more effective. I take 5 with each meal. Every person is different. Some may only need one or two. It's best to try just a few and increase the amount of capsules until your symptoms have gone away. Many doctors say to take just 1 with each meal. That often isn't enough and people are left thinking the enzymes don't work or the brand of capsules is the issue. Take it from me, this works. I've been to surgeons, gastro-docs, natural docs, you name it. Once I began taking this, I am symptom free. Side note:Specific enzymes work on specific foods. You need the right type of enzyme for the foods you want it to break down. Think of the foods you have problems with and then choose a product that contains at least those types of enzymes. Here is a list of the common enzyme types and foods they act on. Digestive enzymes are enzymes that break down food into usable material. The major different types of digestive enzymes are: • amylase – breaks down carbohydrates, starches, and sugars which are prevalent in potatoes, fruits, vegetables, and many snack foods • lactase – breaks down lactose (milk sugars) • alpha-glactosidase – facilitates digestion of beans, legumes, seeds, roots, soy products, and underground stems • protease – breaks down proteins found in meats, nuts, eggs, and cheese • pepsin – breaks down proteins into peptides • peptidase – breaks down small peptide proteins to amino acids • bromelain – derived from pineapple, breaks down a broad spectrum of proteins • papain – derived from raw papaya, broad range of substrates and pH, works well breaking down small and large proteins • lipase – breaks down fats found in most dairy products, nuts, oils, and meat • cellulase – breaks down cellulos, plant fiber; not found in humans.
An enzyme that helps me digest raw veggies ... I do a predominantly raw, vegetarian diet and after having had colon surgery, I now need a little help processing all this raw food. This enzyme is the best I've tried, hands-down!

These digestive enzymes are too mild, they do not serve the purpose. Or may be the caps are just full of cornstarch?
helps me use the food I eat

I am vegan and wanted to find an enzyme that was also vegan, I have used this for over two years and it has helped me quite a bit. I have occasional IBS and since using this my bouts have been reduced greatly
Appeared to have the opposite effect - perhaps the probiotic?

On first taking these I wasn't sure how effective they were. Then I tested them on a known challenging meal for me (steel cut oats). The results were not good - the expected digestive discomfort plus some rather extreme and unexpected gas. It's very puzzling, because the labelled ingredients appear excellent and superior to most other brands side-by-side. But that's moot if they don't work for some reason. I wonder if something has gone wrong in production to inactivate these enzymes? Or could it be the Bacillus subtilis probiotic that's included in this formula? Historically I have reacted badly (gaseously) to concentrated artificial probiotics, so maybe that's it. I was in two minds about buying this brand because of that ingredient; I really don't want to be taking a probiotic every time I need enzyme support. But I read up on it and it seemed OK. Well... By contrast, I had none of this trouble, and found marked digestive benefits, from an old bottle of Source Naturals Daily Essential Enzymes that has a far more ordinary ingredients label. I'm really not sure what to make of this. How can enzymes ever *not work*??? Unless they are somehow not active. Or is the probiotic is so aggravating that the enzymes cannot counter its effects?
Maybe too powerful

- Bought if for digestion problems - Helped me cope with some heavy meals - Made my stumach ache several times (maybe because they were smaller meals)
