NOW Papaya Enzymes Chewable Mint Description
With Mint and Chlorophyll
Supports Protein Digestion
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. The lozenges are made with whole, unripe, spray dried Papaya powder, and have 40 mg of Papaya per lozenge. In addition, Protease, Lipase and Cellulase have been included for a full spectrum of enzymatic activity. This table is also useful as a mint breath freshener.
Suggested Usage: Adults chew or dissolve 2 lozenges in mouth following meals or as needed. For children (over 4), chew or dissolve 1 lozenge in mouth following meals or as needed. Store in a cool, dry place after opening.
