Dr. Johanna Budwig

Vitamin A: Strengthens the immune system and eyes.

Acerola: Acerola is the fruit of a small tree that is native to the Caribbean and northern South America, and is one of the richest sources of Vitamin C in the world.

Vitamin B-2 (Riboflavin): Supports the eyes; helps the body utilize other vitamins.

Vitamin B-5 (Pantothenic Acid): Supports normal growth and development; helps the body use other vitamins.

Bioflavonoids: These natural compounds that are found in fruits and vegetables act as antioxidants, immune system regulators, and anti-inflammatory agents. Bioflavonoids also enhance the absorption of Vitamin C.

Vitamin C: Important for healthy growth of teeth, bones and gums; and in boosting  immune response to infection.

Calcium: Significant in bone and tooth formation and muscle growth.

Copper: A trace element said to be a factor in bone formation and mental and emotional processes.

Vitamin D: Supports bone and tooth formation and muscle function; supports the healthy functioning of the thyroid gland.

Digestive Enzymes: Digestive enzymes are secreted by various glands and organs in the body. Food is composed primarily of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Therefore, in order for our bodies to benefit from the various food groups, we need the three main types of digestive enzymes: 

  • Amiolytic enzymes (or amylase), which break up carbohydrates

  • Proteolytic enzymes (or protease), to help digest protein

  • Lipolytic enzymes (or lipase), to aid in fat digestion. 

Because the body sometimes doesn’t create enough of a particular enzyme, and those found in our foods are often destroyed by heat or processing, many experience chronic digestive problems. Not only can digestive enzymes make all the difference when it comes to getting the most out of the foods we eat, but since they better enable the body to utilize the nutrients, they can also help lower the risk of diseases which may be caused by faulty digestion.

If you find that you most often get indigestion after eating a high protein meal, then you may need more of the enzymes that help your body digest protein. If fat digestion is your problem, then enzymes can help with the digestion of fats also.

Papaya Enzymes with Mint and Chlorophyll is a pleasant-tasting digestive aid that can help to relieve intestinal gas, bloating, nausea, and other symptoms of poor digestion. It has many beneficial ingredients:

Papain: Papain is one of the main enzymes found in Papayas. It is said to be primarily a proteolytic enzyme to help break down protein into a more digestible form, but it may also aid in the digestion of fats and carbohydrates. It also helps to reduce acid secretions in the stomach, contributing to better digestion. 

Papaya Fruit Powder: Papaya is one of the world's most nutritious fruits. It is an excellent source of Vitamin C, Fiber, Folic Acid, and Beta-Carotene. It has long been used in the healing traditions of Caribbean Indians and some Asian cultures as a digestive aid, among other things. The fact that an enzyme from Papayas can be a beneficial digestive aid, is no surprise to those from the Caribbean or other areas where Papayas are part of the diet. As a young child, I remember crying when my grandmother made me swallow the seeds, now I read that they can be ground and added to meals as a tasty way to aid digestion- who knew?- apparently my grandmother did! 

Bromelain: Like Papaya, Pineapple too has been used as a folk medicine by the natives of the tropics for centuries, with one of those applications being its use as a digestive aid. Bromelain is an enzyme derived from ripe and unripe Pineapples. Many of you may already be familiar with it as a popular ingredient in natural anti-inflammatory combinations, however, Bromelain is also beneficial as a proteolytic enzyme, necessary for breaking down protein. 

Other Ingredients: Protease, Lipase, Cellulase (breaks down the fiber), Peppermint powder and Peppermint oil, Chlorophyllin. Since indigestion can cause bad breath, its pleasant mint flavor makes it useful as a breath freshener, too!

Folic Acid: Supports healthy functioning of the nervous system; involved in the production of red blood cells.

Iron: Helps build resistance to disease.

Selenium: Helps the body use Vitamin E effectively.

Zinc: Plays an important role in reproductive organ growth and development.
