My wife was given a information booklet from a 70+ year old who has UC. I just finished reading it over and was wondering if anyone had any opinions on the stuff.  Here is a link....
 
 
If the link goes down, this stuff is called  "Zymactive with Serratia Peptidase" by Natural Factors."
 
Thanks for any thoughts.

Hi...I wouldn't have any qualms about taking it...but it's only for aiding in the digestion of proteins.

I don't believe the info given on the site you listed is what Natural Factors puts out. I'd take all the fancy promises with a grain of salt.

I take digestive enzymes that have multi function to help break down protein, fats and carbs.

let us know how they work for you.

Thanks Q..... The info on the site is actually almost bang on to what the pamphlet I got from Natural Factors said.  I was quite surprised that they would even have such a wide statement.

I think I will give them a try just to see.  Cant hurt. ( I hope )

This is another "cure-all" potion. You'll be throwing your money away in my opinion. I bet you notice no improvement in your UC but I know your savings account will go down.
