Great for indigestion
I have used papaya enzyme for years and am glad I can still order it online. Whenever I have some indigestion or heartburn, I take several of these. Sometimes I need to take several more, but it usually takes care of my discomfort.

Pleasant Papaya
I've been taking papaya for several years now. In my teens and early 20s I had a very difficult time digesting meats and anything spicy without experiencing extreme stomach upset. I learned that by taking papaya before or during my meal, I would digest food better without the painful stomach upset. Most times I would just stay away from those foods, but during those times where it couldn't be avoided, papaya was my friend. Now I have two young children and give them papaya as well. Helps to keep things moving for them without the harsh chemicals found in some fiber additives. And because it tastes great, they have not problem taking it!

I have a recurrence of ulcerative colitis which is very painful, will taking Papaya Enzyme help my condition?
A shopper on Aug 30, 2016
I was wondering if this product was safe to take while pregnant, but I see it's not approved by the FDA. I was prescribed Raglan for digestion, but it has a huge warning on it that is not so warm and fuzzy.
A shopper on Oct 14, 2009
BEST ANSWER: No, no, no! Not sure if you already found the answer to this question or not (and this response is likely too late in coming), but you should absolutely avoid papaya during pregnancy because its enzymes can essentially slough off the lining of the uterus.
