Difference between papaya and papaya w/ chlorophyll tablets?

So I'm planning on picking up some papaya enzyme tablets for the heartburn that's starting to sneak up on me. I see that there are both papaya enzyme and then also papaya enzyme with chlorophyll.

Can anyone tell me the difference? I can't seem to find any info on it.

Chlorophyll is usually used as a breath freshener when taken orally like this. I imagine since people take the enzymes after eating, it's a nice little add-on to freshen your breath as well. I haven't used the papaya with chlorophyll, though.

I've used the plain papaya enzymes for all of my pregnancies and it worked great! I don't tend to get hearthburn except occasionally when pg, but the regular enzymes were enough to keep it at bay.

I DO NOT recommend the "Super Papaya Enzymes Plus" by the same company. I bought them last month thinking "hey, they're SUPER, that means better, right?" But something about them actually GIVES me heartburn within minutes of taking them. Maybe it's the peppermint flavor? I eat peppermint almost every day and it never causes a problem, but maybe there's just too much in the "super" papaya enzymes. I'm not sure but I'm switching back!
