Customer Review

“Every time I ate meat, I would find that I would get terrible stomach cramps about 1 or 2 hours after eating. I thought that I was allergic to something in meat, because I would get pain and feel bloated. I tried to cut meat out of my diet, but found that I struggled with my energy levels. When I consulted my doctor about what to do, she suggested that I look into supplementing my diet with a protease enzyme. After some research to understood what this meant, I discovered that a good protease enzyme supplement was papain. I have been using it for 5 weeks now and can already notice a difference in my bowel habits, levels of pain and feelings of bloatedness.– by Feng, Yishun, Singapore.

 Product Description

Papaya proteinase, also known as papain, is a type of enzyme that breaks up proteins and is found in raw papaya fruit. (Papaya is called "paw-paw" or "papaw" in Hawaii) Papain is a strong enzyme that is particularly good at breaking down tough meats and meat fibres. So much so that it is a popular ingredient in meat tenderizers! It has the ability to break down the smallest protein chains into the building blocks of all cells, amino acids. Because of these properties, it is commonly used as an aid in digestion.

The most important health benefits of Papain are:

  • An enzyme from papaya that helps the stomach to digest protein more easily, especially meat
  • Reduces symptoms of bloating, constipation and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Reduced inflammation and swelling, and promotes wound healing 
  • Research shows it has anti-cancer properties

Papain is a digestive enzyme that is very good at breaking down proteins. It is extremely beneficial for people who suffer from enzyme deficiencies or who experience gastrointestinal symptoms from incomplete digestion of proteins. Incomplete digestion of proteins can cause irritation in the small intestines, resulting in symptoms such as gastrointestinal pain, bloating and constipation. It is used to boost the digestive processes in the pancreas and the small intestines.

Papain is a good agent to use in order to clean out the small intestine from proteins which cause irritation in the intestinal lining. Unlike other protein enzymes which require specific pH levels to be active, papain is able to work within a wide pH range. This makes the enzyme more resistant to denaturation, a process that damages enzymes and makes them ineffective.

Additionally, papain helps to increase the body’s production of anti-inflammatory agents that reduce inflammation. Because of this characteristic of papain, it is being studied to be added to topical medication to treat skin wounds and burns. This effect is also due to the natural ability of the enzyme to cause wound debridement, removing dead tissue to cause and increase in the speed at which wound healing can occur. In some countries, it is used in hospitals to treat ulcers and bed sores.

Papain is widely shown to have anti-cancer properties in scientific studies. Researchers believe it digest the proteins in the cancer cell's walls, making it vulnerable to attack by the body's natural cancer defenses.

Papain is not recommended for use by pregnant women
