Papain Powder 6000 USP 250g
Papain is a type of dietary enzyme derived from the tropical fruit papaya. The papaya has been eaten as a functional food for centuries. The papaya has a history of providing healing of mouth sores and ulcers and as a digestion aid. The best source of papain is found in unripe, green papayas.
Modern medicine has taken the papayas history as a functional food and applied it to modern problems. The biggest area of use is in digestion of dietary protein. The ability to break down protein naturally is a great benefit to many people in the wider community.
New research is trying to establish how papain can be used in the following applications:
1. As an anti-oxidant
2. Prevent cross-linkage of proteins.
3. Reduce organ aging and benefit the skin.
4. Assist immune system function.
5. Anti-inflammatory actions.
