Our bodies create our own enzymes, but a little extra help can't hurt, especially when we can get the other health benefits from papaya and pineapple and prevent bloating. Papaya enzymes are believed to help prevent colon cancer and relieve stomach ulcers as well as pancreatic enzyme deficiency, inflammation, UTI's, bronchitis, kidney stones and parasite infestations (ewww).
Pineapple enzymes help to treat digestive problems and inflammation as well as reduce pain and soothe burns and other injuries. Due to the fact that papaya and pineapple enzymes should not be taken during pregnancy or while on certain medications, its is best to consult your healthcare professional before increasing your consumption of these fruits or supplements. Foods are always the better choice over their supplements, of course!
