Papaya Enzyme - 180 Lozenges
Chewable Digestive Support With Mint and Chlorophyll Supports Protein Digestion. Digestive enzymes are essential to the body's absorption 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.
- Greatly Aids In The Digestive Process
- Breaks Down Proteins
- A Rich Source Of Proteolytic Enzymes
Suggested use: Adults chew or dissolve 2 lozenges in mouth following meals or as needed. For children (over 4), chew or dissolve 1 lozenge in mouth following meals or as needed.
This tablet is also useful as a mint breath freshener
