NOW Super Enzyme contains Betaine Hydrochloride (HCl) and ox bile extract, which are very helpful for people with bloodtype A and AB, who tend to produce less stomach acid and are prone to sluggish liver. It is suitable for people who experience bloating, pain, acid reflux, and food regurgitation with burping, soon after or up to 4 hours after meals. This product works even better if you open up the capsule and mix the content with 1oz (30ml) water and drink it with the meal. Additional tip: this is an excellent fabric stain remover. Wet the area on the fabric that is stained (oil, sauce, sweat, blood, etc), then sprinkle the content of one opened capsule and rub into the stain. Do so on both sides of the fabric of the stain. Proceed to wash the fabric with your usual washer cycle.

The enzymes in this product should be used with doctor's followup if you are on Coumadin or any other blood thinner or diabetic. I didn't know that and when I pricked my thumb to do a blood test I found my usually reluctant thumb bleeding rather freely. Be aware that you might bleed a bit more and I definitely will not be taking aspirin, ginkgo biloba or any other blood thinning supplement while taking these. Don't know if taking away from meals would affect bleeding. Will be testing to find out, though. It took about 3-4 days for the bloating when I took 1 capsule with meals to stop. Now everything seems OK. I also notice that constipation is less. Read an article that taking capsules away from meals helps to clean up arteries since enzymes are not being used to digest protein and protease enzymes can clean the blood itself. Do a Google search on the ingredients if you wish more information.

In the short time I used this product I definitely felt it improved my digestion. However as I became pregnant I stopped using it as it is not considered safe for use in pregnancy unfortunately. Once I have had my baby I will definitely go back to using these enzymes.

This was not effective for me, maybe not strong enough. Tried them to save money but decided Mega-Zyme enzymes work better. As usual iHerb's service and pricing are great.

Taking these digestive enyzmes with each meal has made such a difference in my quality of life. No more being dragged down by indigestion and bloaty feeling. I think the one ingredient that really makes this a quality product in my view is the pancreatin. A lot of digestive products don't contain it and they just don't do the job of digesting well without it.

After many, many years of being plagued by lower intestinal gas, we researched enzyme therapy on the web and found this product at a reasonable price at iHerb. After taking the first dose, the gas disappeared and has not returned while taking just one capsule twice a day. This is an amazing product!!! Future orders will be forthcoming!

I had this low acidity problem, which I never knew unless I researched online. The most obnoxious problem was that something stuck feeling in my throat. I read many people taking OTC medicine for that which weren't really helping them. Since mine was low acidity, and I figured that out because my burp was not sour and it's not burning my throat. So, obviously that wasn't case of high acidity. I took this 2 capsule after each meal and within 2 days, my throats felt so clear and relaxed and no more that something stuck feeling. hats off to this Now product. i recommend this to them who has got low acidity problem.

I have tried Nature's Way Ultrazyme and NSI Mega Digestive Enzymes and this product does not deliver the same results as the aforementioned. I threw them in the garbage bin since sending back to the USA would cost me a lot more than getting a refund.
