Does anyone use the digestive enzyme HCL Bentaine (or any other digestive enzyme) for their UC/IBS/Food intolerance symptoms? Any comments on it?
800 mg Asacolon twice a day
Fish Oil
Iron tablets (only for short term to build up iron stores)

I know quite a few that swear by digestive enzymes, it certainly won't hurt you, so long as it's not full of sugar, artificial sweetners and such...I opt for the natural digestive enzymes, pinapples, kiwis, mangos, papaya but I can tolerate eating these fruits with no problems, others may not.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

at wit's end

I just recently started taking digestive enzymes. I got mine mail order from a company called the Natural Pharmacy in New Jersey. I am sure the Wild Oats market here probably has them also. But this bottle says take two with every meal or just one with a snack. What is the dosage on everyone else's bottles? Hard to tell if they are working. I have to assume they are.
