Everyone needs 'em This is one of the best enzyme formulas my family has ever tried and the price is right. Since most good enzymes have been extracted from our foods, these enzymes step in and do the job. Thanks-a-million Swanson! January 29, 2014
effective Have tried many different enzymes. these work very well. priced right too! November 24, 2013
Questionable Additives In reviewing the ingredients, I researched a few of the additives in this product. I was surprised to find that the Calcium Sulfate Anhydrous, while naturally occurring, is more applicable to industrial uses than one would expect given it's use in supplements. I don't feel comfortable using a product that has a questionable additive in it. It's like putting fluoride in drinking water in my opinion. Therefore, I'm out a lot of money since I trusted that all of the ingredients would be good for me. I will have to find another alternative with less industrial chemicals in it. October 13, 2013
Essential Enzymes As I've gotten older, my metabolism is so slow requiring me to use digestive enzymes. This brand seems to work best for me. Swanson offers a great price on this product. September 2, 2013
Finally! Finally I found an enzyme complex that I am able to use everyday. Its works great,helps my digestion, very gentle. I am using the second bottle. Two bottles already sent to my mom and her girlfriend to Europe. I would highly recommend this product for people with sensitive stomach. Thank you Swanson for a great price and service!

Source Naturals Essential Enzymes great product, great savings compared to health food store price. will continue using. July 5, 2013
Enzymes correct path - thank you I'd lilke to mention that this is by far the best enzymes product I have tried yet - and I have ingested at least 3 other brands before. I felt the beneficial effects of this supplement within my body within the next 20 minutes which in my opinion is a very prompt response; thank you. I do recommend you take this enzymes and monitor yourself - you might be doing yourself a good favor. Sincerely. Lourdes. May 19, 2013
Wonderful product I've spent many years searching for a digestive aid that actually works, and this one does everytime. I notice right away if I eat a meal without these enzymes, and the price at Swanson's is the best I've found. Thank you Swanson! May 8, 2013
Excellent product with improvement with digestion. Price is excellent also. April 4, 2013
This is a great brand to use! My husband and I have used many different brands of enzymes over the past few years but this brand is the best and most effective! March 28, 2013
Essential Enzymes I think this is one of the best enzymes out there because it breaks down protein, fats, carbohydrates, fiber and sugar. December 31, 2012
Got Wrong Ones After I took one, I realized I got the wrong bottle of these. These ones contain more fillers than the pink label ones. Never a good thing, especially if your sensitive to most fillers. Made sense as to why I had a bad reaction to them. October 8, 2012
This is a good enzyme formula. I trust this enzyme formula. I believe it is a good, balanced product and supports my digestion effectively. I appreciate that it does not contain any added sugars. It is a good buy for 240 capsules. March 30, 2012
VERY GOOD! I have taken Digestive Enzymes for countless years. I have tried several well known brands with more or less success. This one will be a keeper. Great quality, good price and efficient for my digestion needs. April 29, 2011
Great Enzymes I definitely love these enzymes. Make sure to take one before each meal. I have found that these really help my digestion as well as my husband. Highly recommend!!! September 1, 2010
Take right before eating I had been doing some research about digestive enzymes. I purchased this item some time ago. I felt that it really helped aide in digestion. But it was my husband that has had the most remarkable results. His lady coworkers complained to me that after lunch he was gasy and stinky. I convinced him to try the enzymes before eating his lunch and wow, even he was happy about the results. Nearly no gas and no more complaints from his coworkers. It has to be the enzymes. Great Job!
