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!

Good product, but not as effective as some

I have used a similar product before with great results, but wanted to try out other products in comparison. I take it that it might come down to individuals so that what works for one doesn't work for another. I use this to relieve and control my acid reflux, which can get bad especially during the night. This one doesn't remove all the symptoms, but I can notice it helps a bit and reduces the symptoms. However, for me CarnoSoothe by Life Extension has been better and even life-changing, with a stronger effect and it almost completely removing my acid reflux problems. As I said, I do believe that perhaps for someone else this product is better, but I'll switch back to CarnoSoothe since the difference is huge.
Taking to heal leaky gut

I do not know if this is working or helping yet. I'm told it's the right thing to take to heal leaky gut, and that it takes awhile. Take one with each meal.
been taking two a day for almost a month, no visible effect yet

Too soon to tell if this supplement will help. (I can't get off the review page unless I review ALL products. I was only prepared to review one of the products listed.) But I have big hopes for this.
