Also known as
Papain, Papaya proteinase I
Papain is a cysteine protease enzyme present in papaya that is responsible for the metabolism of proteins, fibers, and even extracellular matrix molecules which hold cells together. These actions make papain an excellent tool for tenderizing meat and other foods, and as a powerful digestive aid.
Standardized extract of Carica papaya, totaling a 100,000 u/g or 3000 USP/mg papain content.
Recommended amount per dose is 500-2000 mg, or a single to four full size '00' capsules.
Papain contains proteolytic enzymes which help digest protein, freeing amino acids from their protein chains. This enzymatic activity also can reduce inflammation, support the immune system, and facilitate detoxification.
Do not consume without knowing an accurate dosage. A milligram scale is highly recommended.
