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.
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.
