So, what is papaine?

Papain is a protein-digesting enzyme found in papaya fruit and its leaves. This powerful digestive enzyme is known for its ability to break down tough meat fibers, making it a popular meat tenderizer. It is also widely used in the production of dietary supplements and cosmetics due to its anti-inflammatory and exfoliating properties. Papain has been used in traditional medicine for centuries to treat digestive problems and promote wound healing. In addition, it is a natural remedy for allergies, asthma, and chronic pain. Its unique properties make it a versatile and beneficial ingredient in various industries.
