It is one of the more natural suppliments that is generally used with GI problems, unfortunately there is on the label of the suppliments "do not use with IBD" I have no idea why this is, but if you can generally tolerate it then great.

Hi artist guy, Yes, I love them and tolerate them with no problems, along with pineapple and kiwi, they are all natural digestive enzymes and are great to eat right after meals as they help break your food down for you, less work on the colon, so if you can tolerated them then stick with it.

For others that cannot tolerate eating the actual fruits (papaya, kiwi, pineapple) then getting digestive enzymes in supplement form are a good alternative, many IBDers swear by the supplement form as well.

bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.
