Papaya Enzyme - 180 Lozenges
  • Chewable
  • Digestive Support
  • With Mint and Chlorophyll
  • Supports Protein Digestion
  • Vegetarian Formula

Digestive enzymes are essential to the body's absorption and full use of food.  The capacity of the body to make enzymes diminishes with age, and therefore the efficiency of digestion declines.  NOW Papaya Enzyme lozenges have a refreshing tast and support digestion when taken after meals.  Our tablets are made from whole unripe spray-dried Papaya powder and contain 40 mg of Papaya per lozenge.  In addition, Protease, Lipase, and Cellulase have been included for a full spectrum of enzyme activity.

Enzymes are vital not only for the digestive process, but for overall health. They help protein break down into amino acids, carbohydrates into simple sugars and fat into fatty acids that your body absorbs as nutrients. However, we may not have all of the essential enzymes we need for optimal digestion. In fact, enzyme production naturally decreases with age, which is why many individuals may experience more frequent digestive issues as they get older. We can still benefit from some extra help.

Papain is an enzyme from papaya fruit‚ which aids in relieving fluid retention and in breaking down proteins. Papain may be used to soothe digestive problems such as inflammation and stomach pain. Papain also helps in expelling parasites. Chewable Papaya Enzyme may improve digestion and absorption of food.
