This Product is great! I started having digestion problems several years after gallbladder removal. Alot of discomfort after every meal especially lunch and dinner. I was sick of all of this and went to the doctor and he just pushed on the right side of my abdomen and said I had gastritis!!Bull!! He gave me acid reducers which was going to make the problem worse. Well I started to do some research myself and was being my own doctor, and thats how i found this product.I still have to watch my fat intake and stress but let me tell you the pain is all gone and I am so thankful I found this product. I take this with every meal and even between meals sometime. We all need to take this stuff!! It does the job and then some! brendalee@inbox.com

It beat another enzyme product in an oatmeal test that I read about in a document assembled by Jon Barron. The oatmeal test is simple: prepare some oatmeal, and place equal amounts (I had about half a cup of oatmeal in each bowl) into two separate bowls. Dump equal amounts of the enzyme supplements you are testing into the bowls (one bowl per supplement). Stir it up, then let it sit for a few minutes. The enzyme supplement which produces oatmeal with a runnier consistency is likely the superior product (don't try and eat the oatmeal with enzymes--I don't think it will taste good).
When I performed this test with this product and an NSI enzyme product, this product made the oatmeal much runnier. It was cool to see the enzymes in action. What is also nice about this product is that it packs more enzyme potential per capsule than the other product, which means this product last longer because it requires a smaller serving size. One more thing--since I've started taking this enzyme supplement, I no longer feel sluggish after my afternoon meals (provided I get enough sleep). And overall, I feel better. Hard to describe, and I know the placebo effect may be occurring, but there you have it.

Have acid reflex for years. Take this enzyme with apple cider vinegar at each meal. Problem solved! Got rid of prescription drugs. Price is great compared to local stores.

I was diagnosed with Celiac late in life and so have major damage to my small intestines. Before I found Essential Enzymes my body wasn't able to break down and absorb the nutrients in my food very well. But from the first day I used this product I could tell the difference. I usually take 2-3 pills before eating, depending on how hard the food item is to digest. If I forget, my intestines let me know. This product is the best. And through Amazon, it's very affordable.

I have tried many formulas over the years. This is the one that seems to work consistently. I worked in a health food/supplement store for 6 years so I was privvy to a lot of research about the companies and their products. I would recommend Essential Enzymes by Source Naturals, over anything else.

I take these enzymes before lunch and dinner. They help with my digestion. I think these tablets have helped me lose some weight, just by the fact that my food is breaking down in a more balanced manner with these. They are especially good to take if you're going to be eating a heavy meal, with high calories or high fat. They help with indigestion. My chiropractor also told me that these are good for mucle aches and pains. I had no idea. So, if I strain muscles, I often take some extra of these. Good stuff.

I began taking this product due to having digestive issues that the doctor could not do anything about. If I ate anything with too much fat in it I would get sick and most of the time when I ate I would feel ill afterward. I began using this product based on the reviews and it works great. I can eat and not feel ill. I can even skip using it for a few days if I need to and still be OK.

I don't have digestion issues. I just heard enzymes were good for weight loss. I take one every day before I go to sleep, & it breaks down the food in your stomach which has helped me to lose 30 lbs in combination w/ eating healthy & exercise too. These are great. There is no question for me that this stuff really works!

This product did not work for me at all. In fact, it made my symptoms worse!

I suffer from multiple food sensitivities and allergies. I adhere to an allergy-free diet and have been working on healing my gut. I decided to take the digestive enzyme from Source Naturals because it had excellent reviews and the price was affordable for me. But after the first day, I had horrendous gas and bloating. It actually made me think my underlying conditions were getting worse. Thankfully I was off from work the week that I tried this product or I would have really offended my colleagues!! I switched over to Life Extension's digestive enzymes and after the first dose, the gas and painful bloating went away.

I don't know what is in this product but I am very sensitive to a lot of things so there must be something that I can not tolerate.

This goes to show that everyone reacts differently to products so reviews alone aren't always going to point you in the right direction.

Gotta be honest. I used to see this in health food stores and I'd pass it up all the time. Seriously, I didnt really even know what an Enzyme was. But after getting bad gas and some irregular bowel movements I had to do something. I realized that like mostly everybody I know, I was not eating my food slow enough and I was eating too many meals per day. So my body wasnt breaking down the food fast enough to digest it properly. I noticed the difference the first time I started taking this. Less Gas, less Bloating, Less Irregularity. And on top of that. It broke down some access food particles that had been in my intestines prior. So I did go to the bathroom heavy that first week. But after that, I've seen an actual change in my tummy size and I'm actually digesting food like i should. Stools are not as large and constipation isnt something I've worried about since taking it. This is a home remedy people. If you have digestion problems, you gotta get this. Trust me, you'll thank me later.......

P.S. Now here's something else. Please drink water people. That keeps the heat off your stomach and helps the process along even better. Not saying you'll be drinking that gallon they talk about, but at least try to train yourself to drink as much as you can. Also, taking this doesnt mean you can eat whatever junk foods you want either. Trust me I was going H.A.M. on Beef and it wasnt working like i wanted it to. lol
