Papain is a digestive enzyme derived from green papayas and is specific for digesting complex proteins found in many types of foods (meat, fish, nuts, dairy, legumes). When taken on an empty stomach, papain can also help to support a balanced immune response to help protect and maintain healthy joints, cardiovascular system, and more.
Natural digestive enzymes are remarkably beneficial biological catalysts. They help us properly digest all the food we eat to liberate the nutrients needed for our optimal health and well-being. Different enzymes are needed to help us digest each of the diverse types of food compounds. Think of it as locks and keys—you need the right keys (enzymes) to fit into the dozens of different locks (food compounds that we eat every day) to open the doors for optimal, healthy digestion.
Our special papain digestive enzyme is naturally derived from green papays with a high potency of 1,000,000 PU per capsule (bromelain and papain combined). All of our digestive enzymes are non-GMO, kosher, and highly purified. They are also free from preservatives and chemicals, and 100% vegetarian with absolutely no animal-based ingredients.
