Papaya has long been used in traditional medicine by various cultures for digestive issues. In South America, for example, papaya has been used as a digestive aid for centuries. In India, papaya is a common ingredient in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for treating digestive problems such as bloating and constipation. Additionally, papaya has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate indigestion and stomach pain. This traditional use is further supported by the recognition by Health Canada that papaya contains digestive enzymes.
Papaya naturally contains a protease called papain, which acts like other proteases naturally present in our bodies by breaking down proteins with an enzymatic mechanism. Papain can assist in breaking down proteins, carbohydrates, and fats in the digestive tract, thereby promoting better absorption of nutrients and alleviating digestive discomfort.
