I'm thinking about starting one of these, but which one?  What are your experiences on which ones work well and which ones don't?  Thanks!

I've been eying Super Enzymes by NOW Foods. It looks to get great reviews at a good price. I lift weights and like my supplements so if you guys are looking for good places to order things from, let me know. I know of a few sites that can't be beat!
