Enzymes are vital not only for the digestive process, but for overall health.* They help protein break down into amino acids, carbohydrates into simple sugars and fat into fatty acids that your body absorbs as nutrients. However, we may not have all of the essential enzymes we need for optimal digestion. In fact, enzyme production naturally decreases with age, which is why many individuals may experience more frequent digestive issues as they get older. We can still benefit from some extra help.*
While enzymes are produced mainly in our digestive system they can also be found in some whole foods like papaya. This unique tropical melon is more than just a popular food – it is a rich source of the enzyme papain, a powerful protein-dissolving natural enzyme. Chewable Papaya Enzymes from American Health® are the perfect “after meal” supplement® to promote nutrient absorption, immune health and gastric wellness.*
