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. In addition, Protease, Lipase and Cellulase have been included for a full spectrum of enzymatic activity.
This tablet is also useful as a mint breath freshener.
As a dietary supplement, chew or dissolve 2 lozenges in mouth following meals or as needed. Consider taking these other NOW products: Optimal Digestive System and DGL.
