These are very effective, and I especially like them because they are plant based. I am uncomfortable with taking pancreatin if I don't have to, and the enzymes in these help digest proteins, fats, and carbs but are not going to disrupt your hormones.

I have used these enzymes for years, and the results have been far better than with other types I've tried. They dissolve easily, but you could even chew them (the taste is not that great, though). I take a tablet or half a tablet with some water before, during, or after a meal, and I no longer need antacids (which contain aluminum). These are gentle, too. Many other types I've tried had pancreatin in them. These are plant-derived and, I feel, safer. I have never had any problems from taking them, and I have a lot of different sensitivities. I recommend them highly. I read in Maureen Salaman's book that taking these is like sending your pancreas on a Caribbean vacation, and that is a cute way of saying that these enzymes take a burden off your pancreas that improves the way you feel and safeguards your pancreatic health.
