Now Foods, Chewable Papaya Enzymes, 180 Lozenges
By Now Foods16 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Digestive enzymes are essential to the body's absorption and full use of food. The capacity of the body to make enzymes diminishes with age, and therefore the efficiency of digestion declines. NOW Papaya Enzyme Lozenges have a refreshing taste and support digestion when taken after meals. Our tablets are made from whole, unripe, spray dried, Papaya powder, and contain 40 mg of Papaya per Lozenge. In addition, Protease, Lipase and Cellulase have been included for a full spectrum of enzymatic activity.
This tablet is also useful as a mint breath freshener.
As a dietary supplement, chew or dissolve 2 lozenges in mouth following meals or as needed. Consider taking these other NOW products: Optimal Digestive System and DGL.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I really wish NOW would step up and get GMO-Free certified products. GMO Papaya are definitely out there in the market, but NOW remains suspiciously unconscious of such consumer concerns.
What a great product for eliminating bloating. I eat them between meals and find I get less bloating when I do eat. If I take them after a meal when I'm looking very bloated, the bloating goes down within 30 minutes. Great product, very happy with it.
