If you have a high quality product, most people need 1-2 capsules with their major meals. (Most people don’t need to take any with light meals or snacks unless their digestion is very messed up.) The most I’ve ever had to use with a person was 4 capsules with each meal.
Absolutely recommend this product. Acid reflux may get triggered in different people by different foods and drinks. The cause is often attributed to an individual’s lifestyle but might also be a result of hiatal (or hiatus) hernia. In this condition there is a hole in the diaphragm which allows the upper part of the stomach enter the chest cavity, this leads to GERD. The reflux may also be caused by pregnancy as the internal organs suffer from extra pressure.
Decade’s Ago, One of my brother’s had told me about Papaya Enzyme Tablet’s / Pills being Excellent for taking when a person has some Pains in there Stomach from Over Eating. Since I have been taking the Papaya Enzyme my stomach aches have subsided and I have not had the issues with swallowing my food and my appetite has greatly improved.
There are always side effects, but not with Papaya Enzyme. It works better than anything I have ever used, there are no side effects at all. I recently had a stomach virus that lasted longer than most modern marriages. I did a google search and read about the papaya enzyme and GNC was having a sale.
If I force myself to walk 3 to 4 miles every day, including uphill, my acid reflux is much reduced. I’ve never read any studies to show the effect of exercise on GERD or acid reflux, but I assure you, it’s worked for me. Papaya enzymes have a reputation for aiding digestion, but there has been little research on this approach.
These can help decrease distension of the stomach. The enzymes should be acid-resistant, so they work in the stomach itself, not in the small intestine. A powdered enzyme preparation (1/2 teaspoon) can be mixed together with the calcium powder above and taken after each meal. Digestive enzymes are available in health food stores and drug stores.
Even so, raw-food diets and juice fasts, which have been championed by the actress Gwyneth Paltrow and the designer Donna Karan, have grown in popularity. But some find the rigid regimens, which can involve extensive shopping, preparation and luridly colored liquids, difficult to follow. “That’s why enzymes come in handy,” said Robert Dagger, who owns High Vibe, a raw-food lifestyle store in the East Village that sells fresh-pressed juices, books and enzyme supplements in capsule form that Mr. Dagger formulates himself. “I’ll be out to dinner with people who aren’t healthy at all, and at the end of dinner they break out the enzymes,” he said.
But we do know that OTC digestive enzymes can help manage other conditions. For example, if you don’t make enough of the enzyme alpha-galactosidase, needed to digest the sugar in beans, you may benefit from taking an alpha-galactosidase supplement (Beano, Bean Relief). So I was particularly interested when a friend suggested that an over-the-counter (OTC) digestive enzyme supplement might help. I learned pretty quickly that there are lots of ads for the pills and powders. It’s a booming business, with sales for OTC digestive enzymes of all kinds expected to reach $1.6 billion by 2025.
I take 5 tables daily and have no issues at all. Replace stomach acid, enzymes and nutrients that aid digestion and are necessary for health. Although many readers affirm that both approaches are helpful, we do not have solid scientific evidence to support these remedies.
not for vegetarians or vegans, and can have issues with stability. They work really well for some people, but typically are not the forms I’m using. “Plant” sourced (from fungus) are the most stable of all the enzymes, survive digestion well, and have a broad spectrum of action. These are the ones I most commonly use.
For a period of may be two weeks I came down on the dose as I wasn’t having any issues anymore, but now the irritation started again. I was taking 1 enzyme pill and one ginger capsule for digestion and that seems to really help me digest my food, but now, I’m feeling a mild warm feeling in my stomach shortly after, and while its more soothing than anything else, soon after that warm feeling goes away, the irritation begins. I decided to cut down on the ginger to see if it helps, but I am gassy again and it feels like my food just sits there.
