Chewable digestive enzymes to help digest proteins

Aids in food digestion by breaking down protein, starch, fat, and fibre

Source of antioxidants that help protect against cell damage caused by free radicals

With Mint and Chlorophyll for fresh breath

Product Description
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. Bromelain has been extracted from pineapples to add further digestive help for protein and fats. Both papya and pineapple also provide a source of naturally-occuring antioxidants that can be protective in the digestive tract and body. In addition, Protease, Lipase and Cellulase have been included for a full spectrum of enzymatic activity to help digest protein, starch, fat and fibre. This lozenge may also be useful as a breath freshener. Our NOW® natural and organic Supplements are an effective way to ensure you and your loved ones are getting essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients for daily optimal health. Since 1968, NOW has been making top quality products that are tested to the highest standards to empower people to lead healthier lives. Our promise – what is on the label, is precisely what is in the bottle.
