What are Papaya Enzymes good for? Is this product vegetarian?
NOW Papaya Enzymes combines natural papaya enzymes with Mint and Chlorophyll. This product is good as a digestive aid, and should help with flatulence and bad breath as well. Since poor digestion can contribute to bad breath, Papaya Enzymes and Chlorophyll may help by supporting healthy digestion. This product is a vegetarian product. Stearic Acid and Magnesium Stearate are natural excipients derived from palm oil.
After taking NOW Super Enzymes, I began to experience chronic stomach pains. Is this normal?
Should I stop taking this product? Does this product contain salicylates?
NOW Super Enzymes contains a broad array of digestive enzymes designed to assist your body in the digestion of many different types of food. A few people who use NOW Super Enzymes experience a reaction to the protein digesting enzymes in this formula (Pancreatin, Bromelain & Papain). Most of the time this occurs because the person had an irritated stomach lining prior to using Super Enzymes, and these particular enzymes may exacerbate this existing condition. Discontinue use of the product if you experience any sort of stomach irritation after beginning supplementation. This product does not contain any salicylates.
