Excellent!! You hear a lot of hype about these types of products. I have to say as I started, in the beginning; Excellent!!.
I was having severe bloating and constipation and since I started Amen Leaky gut all that had changed I will continue this product!!!
It hasn't helped my constipation. N not sure it really does much for me?????
Hi Debrs, We are very sorry to hear that you are not satisfied with your experience on our product. Amen Leaky Gut is an all-in-one digestive supplement that offers non only 10 Billion CFU of plant and soil-based probiotics but also fermented and organic prebiotics, bioavailable amino acids, and adaptogenic herbs along with a blend of superfoods. This mix of natural ingredients is formulated to help support your gut but as you probably know, everybody is different and can benefit in a different way depending on their body's responses.

I suffer from IBS and my symptoms have decreased significantly since I started taking this product, will definitely continue to take it.
After several years of severe gut problems, I got to where I was unable to eat any food at all. Even the elemental diet was no longer working for me. Amen Leaky Gut was the first product I bought from CodeAge. The improvement was remarkable in a fairly short time. So I added some CodeAge products to my daily supplements, and after a few months I am able to eat most things (still some I avoid) and feel much better. Leaky Gut works very well for me, and I don't think it's a stretch to say that all of these products from CodeAge have saved my life. I might add that I do not take any medications at all, nor have I ever, so I can truly say that it is these supplements that helped me to get my life back.
