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!

I have used this before and then quit for a while and my stomach problems came back. So I started taking it again and it is helping. I use it along with DGL, Aloe vera juice, and mastic gum. Does take a little while to feel the benefit.

My naturopath said its better to take this on an empty stomach rather than actually with a meal as the instructions say .i have found it certainly helps with acid reflux .

I have been taking this product for two weeks.. For leaky gut. I have too many food intolence to count on two hands. I am very sensitive to take vitamins too. I have been able too take this vitamin with no problems. I have noticed a slight improvement in my stomach. But only after taking for two weeks.Its too early to tell...

Not as good as the old Jarrow PepzinGI. Noticeably weaker and not as effective, but still better than nothing. The Jarrow product unfortunately is discontinued now, so this is one of the only options available. Haven't tried the Now version yet, that's next.

I have acid reflux sometimes very mild, sometimes severe, I noticed when I take it during my meals works best for me. I still have some GERD before I go to bed though, and I have to take something else.

I use this instead of Nexium and I it is a good alternative. You have to take it 2 times a day and then it works without side-effects. But Swanson has a Zinc-carnosine supplement that works even better for me.
