What are Papaya Enzymes?
The Papaya is a plant native to Mexico and Central America. It is a short-lived, fast-growing herb that bears fruit. The Papaya is a pear-shaped fruit that is rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and potassium. Papayas also contain the enzyme Papain. Papain is a digestive enzyme that is more readily found in green, unripe fruits. Papain has a mild and soothing effect on the stomach and is very useful in helping to aid digestion.*
The History of the Papaya
The effectiveness of the papaya as a medicinal herb has been known since the 1700s. But it was not until 1870 that the enzymes of the papaya were recognized medicinally. Papain is by far the most widely studied enzyme of the papaya and has been used in many areas including wound care, clotting milk, treatment of jellyfish and insect stings and the treatment of digestive problems.
