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.

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.
