A google search turned up an old thread here about the enzymes helping with that. Since I plan on eating veggies and fruits when I phase off, I got the IP enzymes.
Anyone take them? Has it helped?
When and how many do I take?
I think they help with gas & bloat, especially in combo with novi-lax.
You take the enzymes about 5 minutes before your meal or even just before you start eating.
Start with one at lunch and dinner. You can bump it up to two if you don't think one is helping. You don't really need to take them at breakfast if you are just having a shake or packet.
Keep taking them as you phase off, especially with the bigger lunch and the phase 3 breakfast. I have found with eating a better variety of food, I don't need them for Phase 4 necessarily. Just stay consistent thru your last weeks of P1, then P2 and P3.
Do try it consistently for about a week or so.
