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 taste 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.
NOW® Papaya Enzymes combine natural papaya enzymes with Mint and Chlorophyll. This product is good as a digestive aid, and may also help prevent gas. Since poor digestion can contribute to bad breath, Papaya Enzymes and Chlorophyll may help by supporting healthy digestion. This is a vegetarian product. Stearic Acid and Magnesium Stearate are edible natural waxes derived from palm oil, used in small amounts for processing purposes.
