Royal Tropics specializes in mature green papayas, obtaining papain from the original source through a low-temperature drying process (less than 118° Fahrenheit) ensuring higher levels of enzymatic activity. Other papaya dietary supplements are made from ripe fruit, which is rich in fructose (sugar) and lower in papain.
Green papayas contain two important enzymes, papain and chymopapain. These are proteolytic enzymes which assist proper digestion by breaking down proteins into simpler, more soluble forms. Papain transforms proteins into peptones which are more easily absorbed into the bloodstream and facilitate protein assimilation for more efficient and healthier digestion.
