Uses & Benefits
Digestive enzymes do more than aid digestion. Because they are efficient at breaking down protein, carbohydrates, and fats, they stimulate the good bacteria in the digestive tract, detoxify and cleanse the colon. This makes them useful for many conditions related to poor digestion, including seasonal allergies.
Papain, an enzyme extracted from papaya (Carica papaya) fruit, stimulates the appetite and aids digestion. It is good for relieving indigestion and heartburn, and helps the body digest proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Bromelain, sourced from the stem of the pineapple (Ananas comosus), helps the body digest proteins, fats, and sugars. Amylase begins the process of digestion and breaks down amylose, a form of starch in carbohydrates and sugars. It is sourced from the Aspergillus oryzae.
Natural Factors Chewable Papaya Enzymes with Amylase and Bromelain is recommended for healthy digestion. Naturally flavoured chewable tablets, they aid the body in breaking down proteins, carbohydrates,and fats while improving nutrient absorption.
