- A potent digestive enzyme
• Aids in protein digestion
• Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory
Papain is an enzyme present in papaya. The use of papaya for the relief of digestive complaints by both ancient and modern South American populations is attributed to the healing powers of papain. It breaks down protein and fibers, including complex proteins and tough meat fibers.
Papain helps to break down complex proteins from animal sources into simple amino acids for easy assimilation back into the body. Papain is a protein-cleaning enzyme that has a mild, soothing effect on the stomach, which helps to relieve digestive issues including bloating, upset stomach, and diarrhea.*
Papain exhibits antioxidant properties, helping to combat the damaging effects of free radicals, which contribute to disease formation and the signs of aging. Additionally, papain has shown to be useful as an anti-inflammatory and may help in cases of arthritis and athletic injuries by reducing pain and swelling and accelerating the healing process.*
In the case of harmful microorganisms in the digestive tract, papain helps to restore the digestive tract to its normal state, which tends to be an inhospitable environment for these pathogens.*
