As a digestive aid, this handy and tasty chewable is excellent for people
on the go. Chewed following a meal, papaya enzyme helps the digestive
system break down food for more than just comfort - you get more
nutrients from food when it is fully and effectively digested.
Enzymes are molecules that speed up chemical reactions – they either
help build new molecules or they split the bonds that join molecules
together to break them into smaller units. This is extremely important
in a vast number of bodily functions and is absolutely essential for
healthy, comfortable digestion of food.
Most enzyme supplements, contain proteolytic enzymes, also called
proteases, that break down proteins. These enzymes include chymotrypsin
and trypsin from pancreatin (from hog pancreas), bromelain (pineapple
enzyme), papain (papaya enzyme), and fungal and bacterial proteases.
Proteolytic enzymes are often used to help improve digestion and relieve
abdominal bloating and discomfort, and excessive flatulence.
