Papaya (Carica papaya) has long been known to contain digestion-assisting compounds that are natural and safe. One of the most important elements in papaya is the enzyme called papain. Vitabase Papaya Chewable also includes the alpha amylase enzyme. While papain is known for its ability to help digest meat, amylase works to digest carbohydrates and starch like those in cereals, beans, rice and potatoes.
Papaya (Carica papaya) has long been enjoyed as a delicious food, but now it is also recognized as a safe and natural digestive aid. For thousands of years, South American natives have used papaya because of its ability to break down tough meat fibers. This is due to an enzyme called papain, which is used today in commercially available powdered meat tenderizers.
Vitabase Papaya Chewable also includes alpha amylase enzyme. Amylase is the name for enzymes that break down starch. While papain works to break down meat in your digestive tract, amylase helps digest starch and carbohydrates like those found in potatoes, rice, beans, and cereals.
