I just saw a commercial for Beano and wondered if anyone has tried it for the gas, bloating and general pain that most of us experience.  I sure would think it's worth a try.  Anybody???

Back when didn't know I had UC I tried Beano hoping for relief from gas. My problem was too big for Beano to handle. I've tried all the OTC there is. Good luck with your try.
In remission April 2010 after 10 years of suffering and no remission ever
Jan 2010 started SCD diet (modified to remove dairy, fruit & juices)
Bleeding stopped in 3 days, other symptoms improved slow & sure
Diet: Gluten/grain-free, fructose-free (blueberries OK), dairy free (swiss cheese OK), starch-free
I eat: Protein(meat/fish/eggs,no soy), nuts(soaked/roasted), non-starch veggies, nut-flour muffins
Daily: fish oil, Vit D3 1000 2Xday with oil/fat, veggie juice, sunflower seeds, probiotic VSL#3
Highly recommend: the book "Life without Bread" and the Specific Carbohydrate Diet

It's used as a digestive enzyme for certain foods....do the search for Beano and use it accordingly.

I use it (when I remember), and it helps.
It should be taken with the first bite of food.

Yes, I use Beano when going out to eat - just back from vacation and used it eating at Red Lobster - helps with gas and IBS especially, for me!
