Research Ref: Educational Information
Studies of geriatric patients show that the incidence of
achlorhydria increases with age. This decrease in acid content
effectively reduces the ability of pepsin to digest protein. The
supplemental enzyme activity of papaya has been used as an aid to
protein digestion in these patients. This digestive activity has been
used in cases of gastric discomfort where a sense of fullness, pain or
nausea may be present after meals. Such conditions are not unusual,
although they seem to occur most frequently in persons who suffer from hypochlorhydria, achlorhydria or achylia.
utililization of proteolytic enzymes in medicine and
pharmacology has been well documented by studies in animal and human
nutrition. Papaya, for example, when added to the feed or dogs on a
soybean protein diet caused significant increases in digestive
Papain: Papain is a proteolytic (protein degrading) enzyme
preparation isolated from the Carica papaya fruit. It is
characterized by the ability to hydrolyze large proteins into smaller
peptides and amino acids. Its broad substrate specificity and ability to
hydrolyze small peptides as well as large proteins make papain an ideal
enzymatic supplement. Papain activity is measured in the Food Chemical
Codex Papain Unit (FCC PU)
Papain has a mild, soothing effect on the stomach and aids in protein
present world supply of mucosa from hog stomachs has diminished
due to high demand and rnanufacturers of digestive aids should consider
replacing pepsin (prepared from hog mucosa) with PAPAIN.
The price of
PAPAIN on an activity basis is
approximately on half that of pepsin (I: 10,000) and since PAPAIN
is manufactured and derived from a plant there should be no problems
relative to supply. Also, since the two enzymes are comparable with
regard to activity
in the pH ranges previously listed their performance is also similar.
