GLOSSARY
PAPAIN

Papain

 

How does it work?

Papain is a proteolytic enzyme found in the papaya plant which is used for its role as a digestive enzyme to assist in breaking down proteins in food.1 This may help those with compromised digestion systems or pancreatic conditions where there is insufficient endogenous production of enzymes.2 Papain is also used as an anti-inflammatory agent, helping to reduce pain and swelling and accelerate healing in a variety of acute injuries.3 Through inhibiting inflammation without suppressing immunity, papain is thought to also improve circulation and reduce fluid and clot formation at the site of injury.4

What results can be expected?

Papain supplementation may provide enzyme support through assisting digestive protein breakdown in those with compromised digestive systems or pancreatic conditions.5 Papain may also help reduce pain, inflammation and swelling in acute injuries.6
