Unsure: Here in the US products pass stringent tests before going to market, not sure about where you live. There isn’t enough scientific evidence to determine whether or not bromelain is effective for any of its uses, Papain is also used in some toothpastes however, its whitening effect is minimal.

Is it safe to use GNC natural brand super digestive enzymes (http://www. Gnc. Com/product/index. Jsp? Productid=2291) during pregnancy? It has papain, which I have heard mixed things about. I have ibs.

Is it safe to use GNC natural brand super digestive enzymes (http://www. Gnc. Com/product/index. Jsp? Productid=2291) during pregnancy? It has papain, which I have heard mixed things about. I have ibs.

I would avoid.: The GNC ones you asked about do not appear to be enteric coated which means these enzymes will be broken down by stomach acid before reaching the gut, rendering them mostly useless. There is some evidence that some of these enzymes might affect folate (folic acid) absorption which is critical for early neural development, so I would recommend saving your money! Perhaps invest in some organic veggies instead! ...Read more
