Papain Structure

Papain StructurePapain and chymopapain are enzymes present in Papaya fruit that help ease the digestion process among other traits. It helps to turn proteins present in food into amino acids. In different organisms amino acid acts as the primary agent in affecting various chemical reactions that arise out of our mental and physical actions. Digestive enzymes are being produced in smaller proportions inside our stomach and pancreas as we grow up. This is turn can result in ineffective protein digestion the result of which causes the growth of bad bacteria in large numbers inside the gastrointestinal system. Quality protein is absolutely necessary for maintaining good health. This is where the papaya enzymes play a key role.

Papain, found in papayas, is a proteolytic enzyme which digests inert, non-living, proteins. Intestinal parasites are killed when they’re attacked by papain. Protein is the main component of these parasites.

Papain has even shown promising use in treating the symptoms incurred during cancer treatments. Various research has shown that the effects of radiation and chemotherapy, that often cause pain and mouth sores while swallowing food are being soothed with papain. Along with protecting our immune system it also encourages the immune system to fight off the cancerous cells. Rochway, an Australian company, has come up with their unique product called Papaya 35, which bears enzymes of fermented papaya. It is a green tea loaded with papain and a very common way of getting large quantities of papain into your body.

Free radicals are also being kept out of our bodies with the use of their other product, Papaya Probiotic. Free radicals are commonly associated with diseases like Parkinson’s, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and cancer. You’ll need to choose a sugar free papaya product though if you’re a diabetes patient. There are numerous benefits of consuming papaya and the list of benefits keeps growing everyday.

Many websites publish information on papaya research and medicinal uses. There are tons of different products out there to choose from.

Our immunity gets stronger by the magic paw paw creates in a bid to protect our body from cold and flu that affect us time and again. Consuming the juice of paw paw after any antibiotic treatment causes good bacteria to be produced within the intestine. Most antibiotic treatments lead to the death of good bacteria along with the bad ones by their very nature. This gap in the amount of good bacteria can be lessened by the use of papaw enzymes. One such example is papain, an enzyme formed out of papaw, which destroys many parasites residing within the intestine. Non-living proteins are being digested by photolytic enzymes, such as papain. The key component in the survival of all intestinal parasites is protein. The parasites are thusly killed by papain when it attacks these proteins.
