Customer Ratings & Reviews

Digestive Essentials is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It helps me but.. I like this product, but the directions said two per meal. That was a little much for me, so reduced it to one tablet with meals and it works a lot better for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard to swallow I have taken these supplements for many years after eating a meal and found them very effective in digestion. But recently, the pills have become very hard to swallow because they are no longer coated. Before, they were coated with a clear substance that made them much easier to swallow. Please resume coating these pills so they are easier to swallow. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for me Have tried lot of others & will be sticking with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job I have been taking this for over a year now and really noticed a difference when I ran out last month. I feel this really is essential for my digestive health.
Date published: 2013-08-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for those big meals This product is great for those big meals to digest so you can absorb the carbs, protein and fats from the food you eat. I think it goes through my system much faster with this product. The only downside I would say about this product is the smell but overall its a great product for the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Digestive Essentials With this product I need to take it with probiotic too to have a better result.
Date published: 2012-10-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Won't Be Without!! My family has used this product for about 10 yrs., maybe more. If l could have only one supplement, this would be it! This formula has been far more effective than other products designed for the same issue and costing two, three times or more the price of this one! I have shared this product with many friends over the years, and all have been favorably impressed.
Date published: 2012-09-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Digestive Solution I started taking this about 2 months ago and found that my bowl movements are more frequent and look much better than the loose stools I used to have.
Date published: 2012-08-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a good product, it has lead me to a better health path for an overall GI support. However, to see greater improvements I had to introduce an enzyme support as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Digestive Essentials I purchased these for my son to take and he commented that these were the best enzymes he has taken yet.
Date published: 2010-01-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I rarely eat a meal without taking these, helps with digestion and gas.
Date published: 2010-01-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't eat without it My family and myself have been using this product for over 3 years now. We do not allow ourselves to eat any cooked or processed food without taking 2 caplets before we eat. It helps breaking down the food so our body can utilize it faster. I will not be without my Enzymes. Thanks to Swanson family line of products, I am getting healthier as I age gracefully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Good product. If taken before a meal you don't feel bloated or uncomfortable when you are done eating. They give relief from digestive discomfort if taken as directed. The product works.
Date published: 2009-07-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just like Grandma used. I myself have used this product daily now for over 5 years with great results. The combination of Ginger, Cayenne, Licorice and other are what Granny used to give me as a boy, so that my food would agree with me and help me to grow up big and strong. Her's worked then, this works now at 60 yrs old. I can eat any kind of food without worry of burps or much gas. And the calcium in it! I have read that we all need more of that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less Gas/ indigestion! I ordered a bottle for my niece, and decided to give them a try myself. I generally eat healthy foods, but not much meat. I have found taking 1 or 2 of these with high protein meals like beans or eggs, reduces the amount of gas usually created by those meals. Not quite "Beano", but a definite improvement!
