About NOW Foods

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. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

History of NOW
In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy. For the past forty years, NOW has made it their life's work to offer health food and nutritional supplements of the highest quality, at prices that are fair and affordable to all those who seek them. Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. And while NOW has grown considerably over the past four decades, one thing has never changed - NOW's commitment to providing products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives.

NOW Commitments

  • Customer Focused and Information Driven - NOW believes that their products, services, and the decisions they make should be primarily influenced by the desires and needs of NOW customers. The decisions that NOW makes should be based on accurate information and therefore NOW places a high value on knowledge and learning within their organization.
  • Quality and Value Oriented - Acting in the best interest of NOW customers, NOW endeavors to produce the highest quality products at competitive prices. NOW's first priority is to maintain quality where it counts the most - in the products. NOW's exceptional cost-conscious team of employees then focuses their energies on driving costs down. Nurturing this competency of value drives NOW's ability to provide high quality products at the very best prices.
  • Natural is Better - NOW is convinced that natural products are better than their synthetic counterparts and produce better results in human health. Therefore, wherever possible, NOW strives to provide products that contain natural ingredients because they are better for their customers.

NOW Science
NOW experienced professional and technical staff formulate their products to be of the highest quality. NOW have a group of biochemists, chemists, nutritionists, and food technologists who review current science and nutritional parameters, and formulate their products to be effective for the intended use. NOW structure/function claims are based on science for active ingredients, and on nutritional science for nutritional content. Serving sizes are based on doses from clinical studies and other published data. NOW contemporary formulas are designed to meet the health and wellness needs of today’s consumers. NOW use ingredients that have been tested for effectiveness in clinical trials and laboratory studies.

The heart of their science is third party independent research. NOW investigate and review clinical studies and other lab studies conducted on their ingredients and their formulas. Best science is used to support best formulations which lead to best quality.

NOW products are constantly being tested in clinical trials conducted at top universities and research centers around the country and in various parts of the world. NOW products are being tested to determine such things as effectiveness for joint support, quality of life for cancer patients, cardiovascular support, and athletic endurance. Effective products mean health and wellness benefits, which mean quality.

GMP Quality Assured
NOW's GMP certification covers standard operating procedures, employee training, product specifications, expiration dating, vendor certifications and much more. Standard operating procedures include sampling and testing incoming materials according to NOW Foods specifications, inspecting manufacturing processes, and testing finished products to specifications. Tests include organoleptic evaluation (human senses such as sight, taste, smell), physical testing of tablets and capsules, chemical identity of ingredients, potency and contamination testing by the company's in-house state-of-the-art analytical testing lab, as well as microbiological testing by NOW Foods' in-house rapid analysis microbiological lab.

Its high-volume business has allowed it to build strong business ties with some of the best raw material producers in the industry. NOW Foods savings are passed on to its customers in every product it manufactures, every day.

    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.
    • Chewable
    • Digestive Support
    • With Mint and Chlorophyll
    • Supports Protein Digestion
    • 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.

      Love NOW products, and these work fine. Still, Nature's Plus Papaya is super effective and fast acting, and perhaps slightly more palatable.

      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!

      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.
