  • Papaya Enzymes digestive supplement from NOW Foods

  • Chewable digestive enzyme tablets with mint and chlorophyll

  • Vegetarian/Vegan formula
Get the most nutrition out of the foods you eat with a digestive enzyme supplement. Digestive enzymes are essential to the body's absorption and full use of food. The capacity of the body to make enzymes diminishes with age, and therefore the efficiency of digestion declines. NOW Foods Papaya Enzyme supplements have a refreshing taste and support optimal digestion when taken after meals. The tablets are made from whole, unripe spray-dried papaya powder and contain 40 mg of papaya per tablet. In addition, protease, lipase, and cellulase have been included for a full spectrum of enzyme activity. Contains no salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, shellfish or preservatives.

Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Noticeable improvements When I first started taking Papaya Enzymes I was starting a decline in general health. After taking it for a short while, I noticed improvement in overall strength and in the condition of my skin and hair. My impression is that it improves digestion and absorption of nutrients needed for good health. I take it at least once daily after a meal or after taking my supplements. December 26, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by taste hated the taste,gave it to my son said the taste was not to bad December 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Product Decent taste and kid friendly. Does a good job after a heavy meal. September 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly Beneficial Enzymes are highly beneficial for us and I could eat these like candy. Any time we eat cooked foods we need to have Enzymes to help digest the food in our bodies. These are delicious and I am very pleased with the flavor. They say you can never get too many Enzymes which makes me happy! May 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Glad I Found Swanson Our local natural store was out the Chewable Papaya Enzymes for a couple of weeks and I needed to purchase them so I did a Google search and decided to try Swanson because of the good recomendation in the search results. I found the same product from NOW Foods and was able to purchase it at much lower price. What a blessing. April 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very inexpensive, and easy to take form of digestive enzymes. The tablets have a pleasant minty taste. Really helps me get the most out of a mainly vegetarian diet. April 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by DIGESTIVE ASSISTANCE NOW NOW has put together a nice product here. Chewing several of these after a meal, or after taking a big batch of nutritional supplements, generally does the trick - - - makes one's stomach comfortable. The Natural Papaya Enzyme, PAPAIN, will help the body to more efficiently and effectively pick up the nutrients just having been consumed. Depending on the amount and type of food or supplements ingested, one may need to chew up several, as in 2 or 3 or 4 of these. I've seen Papaya Enzymes work very well for people of all ages for many decades. This Papaya Enzyme from NOW is a much better product and more powerful formula than the American Health brand Papaya Enzyme tablets that were around 30 and 40 years ago. (. . . . Still available today, and Swanson carries them, too.# Those worked, but these NOW chewables are more than 3 times stronger, have no sucrose #white table sugar) as the American Health brand chewables do, and are a better formula all the way around. Swanson has their usual great price here on the NOW Papaya Enzymes too, of course, just as you would expect. Personally, I recommend this Papaya Enzyme from NOW or Swanson's own brand Papaya Enzyme. They both deliver 50 mg. of Papain per tablet, so they are equal there. Then it becomes a matter of taste - - - which one's flavor you prefer. We have used both, they both work equally well, and we like them both. April 3, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Papaya Enzymes Chewable Excellent product for anyone who needs additional help with digestion. Best price on the internet, and exceptional online service. Highly recommended. June 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! I really like these chews and find them to be very effective for their intended purpose. Swanson's has the best price online. Thank you! March 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Already loved NOW brand... ..for their commitment to quality, and though these aren't as tasty as some other brands, I think that these are better/more effective overall. It is a pleasant breath freshener as well, being made with mint. The price can't get better, either! Definitely a fan of NOW and Swanson! March 31, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Affordable but not tasty I tried Now Foods Papaya for the first time & compared to Schiff Papaya, which I had trouble finding, it's just not as tasty. It does help but I still prefer Schiff. Now Foods Papaya was the most afforadable & that was one reason I ordered it & of course I will take it when I need to. August 31, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by really works!!! easy to carry chewables, nice taste and very effective!!! December 4, 2010
