Please be sure to check the labels and do the math to be sure as to how many tablets or capsules you should actually use as the above are an average of how many you will need. The tablets are a different potency, it may seem that you need a lot to equal the dose of enzymes you usually use. It is important that the enzymes state PORCINE based.
