NOW Foods Chewable Papaya Enzyme - 180 Lozenges

Now Foods Chewable Papaya Enzymes are digestive enzymes that 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 Foods Papaya Enzyme lozenges have a refreshing tast and support digestion when taken after meals. Now Foods 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.

  • Vegetarian Formula
What are Papaya Enzymes good for? Is this product vegetarian?
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.

After taking NOW Super Enzymes, I began to experience chronic stomach pains. Is this normal? Should I stop taking this product? Does this product contain salicylates?
NOW Super Enzymes contain a broad array of digestive enzymes designed to assist your body in the digestion of many different types of food. A few people who use NOW Super Enzymes experience a reaction to the protein digesting enzymes in this formula (Pancreatin, Bromelain & Papain) or to the acid (Betaine HCl). This may occur if the person had an irritated stomach lining prior to using Super Enzymes, and these particular enzymes may worsen this existing condition. Or someone with elevated stomach acid may not need a formula containing extra acid. NOW also produces a vegetarian source plant enzyme blend designed to aid digestion: Optimum Digestive System. Discontinue use of these enzymes if you experience any sort of stomach irritation during supplementation. This product does not contain any salicylates.

NOW's Mission
The NOW mission is - To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.

In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods—a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products.

Didn't realize there was mint. I think they taste NASTY. If you like peppermint you might like this product. If no one in my family wants the two bottles I bought, I'll toss them. I ate two of them and my heart started racing which meant I was having a reaction. I still trust in NOW products, it was just the peppermint. and my not completely reading the label.

By JoEllen (Baldwin , ND )

Papaya enzymes are great anytime for the slightest heartburn or even a little kid's tummyache. We use them whenever necessary. I recommended them to a friend who had her gall bladder removed, and she said using NOW Papaya Enzymes has enabled her to enjoy many foods she had previously given up after her surgery. She is a big fan!
