Wobenzym: How much to take?

Since I have seen a lot of posts about how good Wobenzym I purchased a bottle. The label says to take 3 tabs 2x a day or as recommended by a doctor. What dosage have others taken and how long did it take to notice a difference?

Greg…what the heck is Wobenzym?

I took Wobenzym a couple years ago for bad tendonitis of the elbows. I took 3 tabs x 3 times a day before meals for a week than backed off to 3 tabs twice a day. I was completely cured in 2-3 weeks. And I never quit training - just cut back the number of sets on elbow flexon movements. Haven’t had any problems since. I lived with the tendonitis for about a month before the wobenzym hoping it would get better but only got progressively worse until after being on the wobenzym for about a week or 10 days then I could tell a big difference. What are you using it for?

From their website " Wobenzym contains systemic enzymes, which split other proteins and break them down into smaller chains of amino acids. The body uses these naturally-occurring enzymes like a biological “vacuum cleaner” to rid the blood of circulating immune complexes and other harmful proteins that can lodge in joints or cause other health problems. "
at www.wobenzym.net and then click on the link “what is it” at the top.

I was originally just going to take it because I have read of others successes with tendonitis but it appears that it is very beneficial.
Hopefully someone with experience taking it will give my post a look?

Wobenzym is some high-tech German pharma that’s supposed to be good for healing sports injuries (like tendonitis) and general immune system strengthening. I bought some and have begun taking it according to the label instructions. I was also wondering about the “amount” issue. Anyone have any input on it?

Wobenzym is an over the counter enterically coated digestive enzyme with pancreatic enzymes, bromelain, papain, and a few others. This is one of the few digestive enzymes I have used that actually work. I usually take about 25 grams of Met-Rx protein before bed and sometimes I will wake up with some G.I. distress so I just pop two wobenzym with the protein and my digestion problems are solved. It is rather expensive but I get mine online for a significant discount.

Never heard of it either.

I am using it for tendonitis as well.
