Papaya enzyme is popular with people who suffer from constipation, bloating, gas, or other digestive issues. Many of the things we eat can be difficult to digest. Even healthy plant-based foods like beans and vegetables can cause gas and bloating. Papaya contains a natural enzyme called papain that is particularly good at breaking down proteins. Our papaya enzyme complex also contains bromelain, amylase and pancreatin which all play different roles in breaking down proteins, fats, fibers, starches, sugars and other substances within foods. Unfortunately, the body does not always create enough enzymes to completely reduce food into its digestible nutrients. Incomplete digestion can cause intestinal gas, bloating, cramping, heartburn and sometimes diarrhea. This happens frequently with dairy products, grains and legumes. Fortunately, digestive enzyme supplements like papaya enzyme may help you to convert more of your food to energy.
