The Best for Complex Carbs

Posted by iHerb Customer on Dec 16, 2010 | Verified Purchase

My stomach is way too sensitive for most other digestive enzyme products. I don't have any problem digesting protein and fat so I don't need Hydrochloric Acid or a lot of protease. What I do need is help digesting complex carbohydrates and Gastro is perfect for this. I'll take one capsule before small meals and snacks, but I'll take two before large meals or foods I eat infrequently. For those of you who have trouble swallowing pills, Gastro is mild enough to open up the capsule and take the powder with water. It’s expensive but excellent. I won’t (can’t) use anything else.

Thanks for your feedback!

My son is autistic and has a sensitivity to high proteases, but still needs a lot of assistance to digest other foods and this product works the best of any we have tried in over a year.

Thanks for your feedback!

Seems to be helping

Posted by iHerb Customer on Mar 08, 2008 | Verified Purchase

I am the survivor of a partial lower gastrectomy and vagotomy. As a result, I have no stomach function, and I use these enzymes to digest as much of the food that I eat as I can. They seem to work better than some of the other enzyme supplements that don't have cellulase. Most of my supplement results bring very few miraculous outcomes. They are simply a way to avoid long term degradation of my system. With this product, I do seem to notice a minor improvement, in that I don't have bowel problems as much when I take it. Other enzyme products are somewhat less effective. This is probably my third year of taking V-gest.

Thanks for your feedback!

Actually The Best Enzymes

Posted by iHerb Customer on May 18, 2016 | Verified Purchase

IDEAL for a vegan diet. I'm low in enzymes at 25yrs old according to tests and I have found these to be better then any other brand of enzyme I could find in Australia. Noticed a dramatic difference in digestion with this comprehensive formula compared to the basic formulas with only the 5 basic enzymes (protease, amylase, cellulase, lactase, lipase). I only take 1 with each meal and after 3 days I'm noticing the correlation between better digestion and feeling all around more at ease.

Thanks for your feedback!

This realy works!

For years I have not been able to eat beans and vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage etc. With this product I can eat it without fear of feeling uncomfortable, or making others uncomfortable later...

Thanks for your feedback!

This is worked for me like no other enzymes on the market today. Usually I have hands and feet but about a week taking Gastro, I can feel warmth all through my body, especially my hands and feet!

Thanks for your feedback!

Not as effective as advertised

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jan 15, 2009 | Verified Purchase

I have used less expensive enzymes with much better results than this brand. It's not quite the same as having taken no enzyme at all, but it is not effective at preventing gas from beans and other similar foods. Taking two did not improve effectiveness over taking one! Very disappointing, I was hoping for better quality for the high price.

Thanks for your feedback!

Seems ok

I bought this when I was eating a lot of beans but these days, I'm on a strict Candida diet, so no beans and can't say how effective it is. I take twice during a meal along with Betaine HCL, but I'm not a vegetarian. Still, I'm definitely less gassy these days.

Thanks for your feedback!

I think they work. Not perfect, but good.

Posted by iHerb Customer on Sep 07, 2016 | Verified Purchase

I and my husband started taking these a few weeks ago due to having issues digesting veggies and beans. They seem to be most effective when also taken with some form of acid, like lemon juice. They have not totally eliminated gas due to veggie fibers, but they do seem to help digestion in general.

Thanks for your feedback!
