"I love the product, and tend to use it on "as needed" basis. Whenever I start to get symptoms (I have Crohn's), I take 2 capsules in the morning, 2 in the afternoon, and 2 at bedtime. It almost always alleviates my symptoms, and as the symptoms start to clear I take fewer capsules. Sometimes I take 2 in the morning as a "maintenance" dose, even if I'm not getting any symptoms. It's a wonderful product, and it helped me a lot. Thanks!"
