Digestion life saver!
I have a digestive problem called Gastroparesis. Since I added these papaya tablets to my daily routine, I can tolerate eating a larger variety of different foods without as many issues. I strongly, recommend these tablets for all ages!

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!

Still a favorite
I have been using this product for many years....tastes great, but more importantly, since I have digestive problems due to surgery, papaya resolves my problems as well as, and more gently than, the chemical alternatives.

Only thing that works for me
I have used GNC Papaya Enzymes for years. This is the only product I reach for when I have an upset stomach. Within a matter of minutes I have relief. If I know I'm going to be eating a certain type of meal that I know will cause me problems I chew a few beforehand and stop any issues in their tracks. I'm never without some.

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.

A shopper on Sep 24, 2012
