I have used NOW's pepzin, but this Doctor's brand is surely better since it only offers Pepzin whereas NOW includes 2 other herbs and additives... It may sound confusing why Doctor's is better, but after using NOW's for 2 months I have developed moderate stomach spasms whenever I take the pills due to either slippery elm or other herbs or additives in NOW's product...I suspect this is allergic reaaction... i can't take the product anymore. When I want to buy Pepzin, I want to buy Pepzin,.. not a combination of other things that really doesn't help me with stomach illness. Doc's product offers ony Pepzin and that is all I need!

The 1 out of 5 only applies to using it if you have histamine problems. The second time I took a pill I soon came out in unbearable itchiness (despite having taken a zyrtec that morning). Have discovered that carnosine degrades to histidine then histamine.

It didnt work for me. Rather the "mastic gum worked much better.

I gave ths to my son with Asperger's Syndrome Disorder hoping to see an improvement in social skills and now I hear it has little zinc-carnosine in it and is largely antacid, it could well have done him some harm.

My lab is on dermaxx and thought we would try the PepZinGI, Zinc-l-Camosine Complex to help settle his digestive tract and it does not appear to have helped him. Unfortunately we have not found anything to replace Gastro-Calm which doesn't appear to be available any longer.

Even though this product was recommended to me by friends and in a book on acid reflux, this product did not work for me and gave me a migraine. Think the culprit is the carnosine. Source Naturals Peach Raspberry Zinc Lozenges work much better in the moment. Nature's Plus DGL Capsules also work to calm my stomach.

I'm sensitive and produce histamine easily and this didnt make allergies etc worse, but it also didnt help with my stomach ulcer pain

To date I have not received the products, this company has no contact with its consumers. A shame!
