Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relief !!! My husband has been taking these after dinner for about a year now - and he absolutely raves about how much better his tummy has been feeling every evening. I thought it was probably just all in his mind and couldn't believe these papaya things could actually do anything. Well - just the other night I ate something that totally did not agree with me one bit - and out of desperation - decided to give these a try. WOW !!! I felt better in about 10 minutes. Now I'm a believer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Pleasant Tasting Digestive Aid Our family has used papaya enzyme for decades to calm unhappy tummies. Whether it's from too spicy of foods or unknown indigestion, papaya enzyme often helps us. We prefer chewables and these are just right for the task. And the taste is nice too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful Digestive Aid I've been using this product for a few years for occasional stomach acid, and have been very happy with it. Pleasant tasting chewable tablets! I've read that papaya enzyme should only be taken with food so I do not use them aside from after a meal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product Very pleased with the Papaya Enzyme. Easy to chew, mild flavor, good value. I'm carefully watching my foods to quell a digestive issue, and the papaya seems to help with that effort, especially if I've eaten a bit more than I should. There are 250 tablets in the bottle, so it will last awhile, but I will purchase again when the supply runs low.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Chewable Papaya Enzyme I usually by the chewable papaya Enzyme from GNC which work really well, so I decided to try these from Swanson, they are chalky & don't work nearly as well as the ones from GNC. I was very disappointed in them. Sorry Swanson
