    Product Information

    Quick Notes:

    • High potency natural digestion aid!
    • Enzymes support the breakdown of food making nutrients more bioavailable to our bodies.
    • Contains 100% natural plant enzymes!
    • Supports healthy digestion with proteolytic enzyme, papain.
    • May reduce some GI discomforts associated with digestive enzyme deficiency
    • Proteolytic enzymes are involved in several functions including immune support and coagulation support.
    • Papain is derived from papaya and facilitates the breakdown of protein and amino acids
    • Bromelain is derived from pineapples and aids in digestion of proteins.
    • Amylase is an enzyme that catalyzes the breakdown of starch into sugars. It is naturally occurring in saliva and begins the mechanical process of digestion.
    • Protease, also known as peptidase and proteinase are enzymes that carry out proteolysis. It begins protein catabolism by hydrolysis of the peptide bonds in the amino acids.
    • Lipase helps breakdown fats and lipids.
    • Supports optimal absorption of nutrients from food.
    • Best if taken after a meal.
    • Great tasting vegetarian formula!

    Overview:

    Our Chewable Papaya Enzyme provides support for overall digestive health and function. The enzymes facilitate digestion and helps release vital nutrients that would otherwise pass through the body underutilized or unabsorbed. It also helps to ease overall digestion. This great tasting tropical flavored chewable tablet contains, papain. Papain is a proteolytic enzyme classified as part of the cysteine protease group. Cysteine proteases are commonly encountered in fruits including papaya, pineapple, and kiwi. Proteolytic enzymes or proteases occur naturally in all organisms. They play an integral role in a variety of physiological and metabolic processes including simple digestion of food proteins, innate immune system activation, blood coagulation, clotting, and participating in cell cycle regeneration.

    Research indicates:

    • May support healthy digestion function
    • May promote the release of vital nutrients during digestion
    • May offer support against heartburn, diarrhea, nausea, and gas after meals

    FAQ

    Frequently Asked Questions - Enzymes

    • What are enzymes?

      Enzymes are necessary in many processes within the body and are distributed throughout all cellular components. Enzymes are best known as catalytic proteins that regulate and speed up biochemical reactions in the body. Food enzymes are only obtained by consuming raw foods or by enzyme supplementation. Raw foods provide only enough enzymes to digest that particular food, generally not enough to be stored for future use. Enzymes in the digestion process break substances into smaller component for digestion and absorption. This process yields energy to sustain life

    • How can I tell what enzymes to start with?

      Minimum levels shown to support digestion for most individuals include: 4,000 HUT of protease, 2,000 DU of amylase, 40 LU of lipase and 40 CU of cellulase. Discuss your needs with your healthcare provider. It may be best to start low, then increase in potency until you find what works for you. Full-spectrum products may be helpful to target all needs.

    • What is “mycozyme” in your Chewable Natural Papaya?

      Mycozyme is an enzyme blend used to digest starch, fat and protein from the diet. It is a vegetarian source of a digestive enzyme.

    • What is the ingredient invertase found in the Enzyme Complex with Herbs?

      Invertase is another name for sucrase which is an enzyme that breaks down sucrose or table sugar.

    • I see many units of measurement for enzyme products on the shelf. How can I compare them?

      Quality products will use ingredients characterized in the Food Chemicals Codex (FCC). The FCC is a system for determining enzyme potency used by the American food industry. It is the accepted standard of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Other assays exist and are used by companies but, unfortunately, no standards currently exist to define which activity units are the most appropriate. The USP Website, 2009 states about the FCC:

      - A compendium of internationally recognized standards for purity and identity of food ingredients
      - Published since 1966, FCC allows manufacturers of food, food ingredients, food additives, and processing aids to comply with standards that have been created and vetted by a highly rigorous and transparent scientific process
      - The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) acquired FCC from the Institute of Medicine in 2006, with the goal of providing full support for the continuing revision and update of the compendium.

      FCC units measure the amount of a substrate that is digested in a certain amount of time by that enzyme.

      Example: if lipase, which targets fat, has a USP of 1,000 units per milligram,  that means that for every milligram of lipase you consume it will digest 1,000 USP units of fat in a given amount of time

      National Standard for Evaluation of Plant Enzymes:
      - Alpha-Galactosidase - GALU (Galactosidase Units)
      - Amylase - DU (Dextrinizing Units)
      - Bromelain - GDU (Gelatin Digesting Units) or FCCPU
      - Catalase - Baker Units (Named after the author)
      - Cellulase - CU (Cellulase Unit)
      - Glucoamylase - AG (Amyloglucosidase Units)
      - Hemicellulase - HCU (Hemicellulase Units)
      - Invertase - INVU (Invertase Activity Unit)
      - Lactase - LacU (Lactase Unit)
      - Lipase - FIP (Federation Internationale Pharmceutique)
      - Maltase - DP (Degrees of Diastatic Power)
      - Nattokinase - FU (Fibrinolytic Units)
      - Pectinase - AJDU (Apple Juice Depectinizing Units)
      - Phytase - PU Phytase Units
      - Protease-HUT (Hemoglobin Unit Tyrosine base)
      - Xylanase - XU (Xylanase Units)

      ** In 2013 an industry “best practices” guidelines for enzyme products was published by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) and the Enzyme Trade Association (ETA). It suggests FCC units as the preferred method if appropriate
