Digestive enzymes are essential to proper digestion. They are made by the body but are also obtained through the diet. Fruits and vegetables provide good sources of dietary enzymes. Unfortunately, cooking often destroys these enzymes. Like their parents, most children do not eat enough raw foods and can therefore benefit from digestive enzyme supplementation.
• Supports the digestive system.
• Provides enzymes to help digest proteins, carbohydrates and fats.
How It Works
Digestive enzymes are protein complexes that are essential for food digestion. They break foods into nutrients that can be absorbed and used to build all body systems, including cells, tissues, organs, glands and hormones. There are three main categories of digestive enzymes: proteolytic enzymes which digest protein, amylases for carbohydrate digestion and lipases for fat digestion.
Whole Foods Papayazyme combines pineapple and papaya fruits-whole food sources of digestive enzymes-and is fortified with additional digestive enzymes, including proteolytic amylase for healthy digestion of most food types. Whole Foods Papayazyme provides digestive enzymes at levels that are safe for chewing and gentle enough for children.
