This product is more for excess stomach acid and related heartburn (IMO).
Gregory L. Firth
As far as I can tell, this product seems to be working well... I have not used it that long yet, but am OK with it.
P. J. McDonald
The taste is good also, I usually don't chew, just suck on them because its a nice flavor.

I discovered Papaya Enzyme at a local vitamin store over 25 years ago and ended my battle with heartburn, a battle that had be marked by daily (or I should say multiple daily) episodes of heartburn while taking all the usual brand names during that era.

During the first week of using papaya enzyme (PE), I used upwards of 30 tablets a day but by the end of the second week I had stopped using them completely. After that, I used PE only as needed. What I learned is that taking 20 tablets of PE is harmless - there were no side effects. However, taking too few tablets would not do the job. If you start with say five tablets, you may need to go higher and should not be afraid to do so.

I don't believe papaya enzyme is a good remedy for upset stomach due to intestinal flu or for stomach gas. This product is more for excess stomach acid and related heartburn (IMO).

One day, I passed a coworker who had a slew of antacid products arrayed in an arc across his desk. I mentioned my experience with papaya enzyme (aka papaya extract) and a few weeks latter he stopped by to say thanks. I knew what he meant. He was off the treadmill of fighting heartburn on a daily basis.

I stopped watching the antacid commercials a long time ago. Who knows, maybe you could to.

The last ingredient is papaya flavors (see list later). Everything else seems to just make an antacid. Probably works great for that, if that's what you're after. I wasn't. Sure would beat mint or other 'fruity' antacids--so I would highly recommend if you need it. The tablets are very small--I would say 2 or 3 would compare to one small tablet of a competitor. Bright white, with a slight off-putting smell, but they do taste great--just like papaya. I think I'd have to eat dozens to get any papaya benefit though. On the label everything is listed as "Other Ingredients" which are: Sucrose, Calcium Carbonate, Vegetable Stearic Acid, Vegetable Magnesium Stearate, Corn Starch, Papaya Flavors. 157mg calcium, 45mg Papain, 6mg Protease, 3mg Papaya Fruit (Carica papaya).

Tastes OK, but each papaya enzyme product contains different sweeteners. This one contains sucrose, the "bad" sugar. My wife feels nauseous right after taking these (sensitive to sweets) so we ditched it and are moving on to another brand. Mannitol, another sweetener used by American Health, is known to cause diarrhea if you are sensitive to it, so be careful which papaya enzyme product you get.

American Health Original Papaya Enzyme tables are terrific for maintaining digestive balance. They soothe an upset stomach, reduce constipation, and are all natural. No chemicals so they are safe to use as well as effective.

There were supposed to be 600 tablets in each bottle. There were only 250. Although the American Health Original Papaya Enzyme tablets are exactly what I wanted and what we use, it was disappointing to believe we were getting 600 when the bottles only contained 250. With this supplier, be sure to try contacting them before ordering to make sure everything is as you expect.

At one of our Brio Birth classes we were talking about easing discomforts of pregnancy, and the instructor mentioned Papaya Enzyme as a heartburn remedy. I decided to try it out. I've had heartburn pretty much all through my second trimester, so I've had many opportunities to use these. They work very well.

If I already have heartburn, I chew three tablets. If I anticipate getting heartburn--like, there was a while where every time I would lie down in bed at night I would get heartburn--then, I chew two before the heartburn starts, and that prevents it. It works almost immediately.

Last week I got a cold and I pulled out the list of "pregnancy approved medications" that my midwife gave me at my first prenatal appointment to see what I could take for my cold. I also noticed that under the "Heartburn" section, she had listed papaya enzyme as well.

I highly recommend papaya enzyme to any other pregnant ladies who are dealing with heartburn! These are pregnancy approved, very economical, they work really well, and they are delicious!

Gross taste, but these actually do the trick. When I was in my third trimester, I popped Tums like nobody's business. Some book recommended these as an alternative, and I ended up taking them way less frequently than I was taking Tums. Popped three at the first sign of heartburn, and it was gone. If it came back later in the day, another two and I was good.

More recently, my husband took three after a night of drinking, and credits them with "saving his life." Whatever. They work!
