Remiron is what I'm taking. I had 3-4 days of terminal sleepiness & feeling like I was in a complete fog. That all went away & even that odd 'cold drop of water' feeling is happening less & less.

We can report odd side effects directly to Health Canada here - I did.

My wife started taking them after I read about those enzymes here in these columns. She felt great with them, told me she didn't feel "full" after a meal, and she is convinced she lost weight. We don't have a scale in the house, strongly prohibited by my so-called submissive wife.

It is now official : my wife not only feels good but lost weight, visibly and measurable. Five pounds gone, in two months. She stopped going to the gym around the time she started taking the enzymes.

An American friend brought four vials of 240 pills each so we will last some time.

Question : should I also take them ? I avoid every extra pill since I started taking warfarin and I have two BP medicines also.

Why not? I think my experience was very unusual... and most likely due to an allergic reaction.

I gave them a try and have been able to eat foods that used to send my heart burn into overdrive. I have been able to enjoy things like bananas, steaks with steamed onions, popcorn, chocolate, peanut butter and raw tomatoes all without needing an acid reducer or feeling uncomfortable. It is so cool that food isn't the enemy like it was.

I do think you need to do some research first.

Ask your doctor, but I am confident they will say "no problem!" As LDW said, they help you deal with stuff you cannot digest well anymore. I have a lot of trouble with bacon cheeseburgers if I do not take digestive enzymes right before eating them. With the enzymes, I can deal with them just fine. And I really like a good bacon cheesebuger.

I've been using them too, sporadically (not a great pill popper here). Today's test was leftovers of a spicy hot sausage, onion, pepper sauce in a lavash wrap with provolone. I give two thumbs up, no burps!

A better test for me would be underripe banana... those will usually leave me doubled over in stomach pain for a couple hours.

No heartburn from the sloppy joes and tater tots. I can't bring myself to try the ultimate test... apple juice. Someone try it for me and see if it works.

Thanks, guys !

I started taking them yesterday and I feel "light" after meals. I have skipped dinners a couple of times recently because I felt full from lunch at dinner time.

Also : I need to lose twenty pounds. Giving up smoking (thirteen months ago, yeah) has produced a "spare tyre" around my waist.

The better enzyme blends contain HCL and ox bile. It sounds awful, but those are the ones that work best. Surprisingly, though they contain HCL (hydrochloric acid), they actually help people with GIRD. It seems counterintuitive, but the presence of the acid not only helps digest the food, it also prevents your natural 'acid pumps' in your stomach from turning on and going into overdrive, giving you heartburn. Another thing to look for is papain, a natural enzyme found in papaya and pineapple. It is the active ingredient in meat tenderizer, and helps break down difficult to digest foods.

I use Now Foods Super Enzymes. I prefer the tablets to the capsules, as they are easier to swallow. Now makes a very high quality product.

Unfortunately some bile acids are apparently capable of damaging the cells that line the digestive tract. So far the evidence that bile acids are involved in colon cancer is largely circumstantial, but it is accepted that bile acids could promote the cancer initiation process. Thus, a supplement of ox bile should only be taken with a meal, and the amount used should be carefully regulated even if you need to divide pills into halves or quarters, in order to avoid discomfort such as diarrhea.
