Destroyed My Health COMPLETELY
on January 28, 2015
Unlike many people, I hated/hate this product with passion. I've never experienced heartburn before taking this supplement since I am relatively young (in 20's). I took two capsules in a day, which caused massive heartburn. I could not fall asleep that night because of acid reflux. The next day, I decided to give it one more go (silly me). Same effect with greater magnitude. I only took four pills in total, but four pills were devastating. This product caused an onset of all digestive issues for me which includes dysphagia, dyspepsia, acid reflux, gurgling, belching, bloating and heartburn. Other side effects include unintentional weight loss, hair loss, fatigue, and difficulty falling asleep at night.
It's been 4 months since I used this product and I still have not recovered fully. Please be cautious with this product. Do not take it blatantly without physician's advice. I should have researched more carefully. This may work for some people who lack digestive enzymes, but if you are not in that case, it will cause havoc to your system.
Okay, so I figured out why some people have problem with this particular product. This is the ONLY product that contains 80,000 HUT of Protease PER CAPSULE among many digestive enzyme supplements out there. Protease can aggravate stomach lining immensely, especially if you take it when you do not need it. Similarly, if your gut lining is not very good to begin with, protease will worsen the damage in your gut. I learned this lesson hard way by popping two capsules (160,000 HUT of Protease) daily for two days. I believe my gut lining was bad to begin with from consuming foods that are hard to digest like lots of meat, nuts, and fats. I also had a lot of antibiotics in the past, which is never good for the gut health.
Again, do your research and know your health condition before taking this supplement. If you do not have any issue with digestion or your symptoms are very mild like mine was, DO NOT TRY THIS PRODUCT. Once your esophageal lining is damaged, it is very hard to recover. Please be cautious my fellow Amazoners.
