12 POINTS ON MATURE GREEN PAPAYA POWDER
- Mature Green Papaya Powder (MGPP) as developed with a
special process by the late researcher, Dr. Kurt Koesel
of Hawaii, contains an excellent source of vitamins,
minerals and enzymes. MGPP contains more Vitamin A than
carrots, more Vitamin C than oranges, abundant B factors
and Vitamin E. MGPP also contains a complex of enzymes
that help digest impacted proteins, carbohydrates and
- Papain is the principal and most active enzyme in
MGPP. Papain possesses a very powerful digestive action
superior to pepsin and pancreatin. Changes in intestinal
alkalinity or acidity do not interfere with the unique
digestive activity of Papain. Papain breaks down animal
flesh, thereby rendering nutrients available to the
digestive process. This emphasizes the need for papain in
the diet of meat eaters as well as vegetarians.
Papain, one of the most powerful plant proteolytic
enzymes, is a catalytic agent that acts in protein
digestion in an acid, alkaline or neutral medium. This is
of vital importance for those with enzyme deficiency
problems as well as for those with low hydrochloric acid
output in the stomach. Remember, the pepsin produced in
the stomach required for protein digestion is activated
only in a acid medium. This requires a healthy output of
hydrochloric acid. which is insufficient in most people.
Due to the powerful proteolytic action of papain, a more
active protein digestant than pepsin, a major digestive
problem for most people will be helped by the daily
ingestion of MGPP.
- A major problem in our diets today is that we only
partially digest the protein foods we consume. This is
due in part to the insufficient hydrochloric acid output
by the stomach. These partially digested proteins help
contributeto muco-protein build up in the body. This is
due to the undigested protein molecules making their way
into the system and eventually finding their way into the
interstitial spaces and accumulating there as
muco-protein, which is a polysaccharide-protein
combination. This muco-protein is also known as trapped
plasma protein. The proteolytic action of papain can
digest the protein we consume so that the accumulation of
trapped plasma protein can be prevented.
- MGPP, which possesses antiseptic qualities, helps
prevent the abnormal proliferation of undesirable
bacteria in the intestines. The pH of the intestines is
then kept normalized with the addition of acidophilus and
bifidus, which aids in normalizing the intestinal flora.
- Papain, found abundantly in MGPP, acts as a powerful
mucus and pus solvent. Papain helps to cleanse the
tissues and intestinal walls of all waste matter,
especially in the form of excessive mucus and dead
tissue. Papain in the whole papaya or in the MGPP is
harmless to living tissue and is a must for maintenance
of health in the intestinal tract.
- In scientific studies using Papain as a digestant, it
has been established that proteins are “actually
chemically transformed into all the various amino acids
that are so vital to human nutrition.” Papain has the
properties to transform albumanoids into peptones in
either an acid, alkaline or neutral medium, making it
superior to pepsin.
- Arginine, one of the essential amino acids, is not
normally produced within the body, but must be obtained
as a component of a few foods such as eggs and brewer’s
yeast. These foods must be eaten with some regularity if
the reproductive organs are to function properly.
However, when Papain is allowed to act upon many kinds of
proteins it has the singular distinctive power of
converting a portion of the protein mass to arginine,
even in the intestine.
- This unique ability of Papain to break down protein
and to convert a portion of it into arginine is extremely
important because arginine in its natural form has been
found to influence the production of the human growth
hormone (HGH). HGH is produced in the pituitary gland and
is directly responsible for DNA and RNA replication as
well as synthesis of liver, muscle, cartilage, and
adipose tissues. Arginine ingested in connection with
exercise has been found to raise the production of HGH
significantly. This HGH helps to increase muscle tone and
decrease the amount of body fat. Arginine has also been
found to inhibit the growth of human breast cancer cells
in test tube studies.
- The Papain in MGPP works to break down various
protein rich foods so that the individual amino acids are
produced and auto-intoxicating or other undesirable
undigested substances are avoided. High blood pressure,
constipation, arthritis, epilepsy and diabetes are only a
few of the ailments aggravated by incomplete protein
digestion. While the presence of Papain may not always
prevent these abnormalities, it has the power to help
regulate these abnormalities through proper digestion.
- The MGPP contains several enzymes in addition to the
Papain used for protein digestion. Carbohydrate and fat
digestion can be accomplished by the enzymes found in the
MGPP. These papaya enzymes have the ability to infiltrate
the tissues. By this means, it can help dissolve injured
and hardened tissues, thus tending to alleviate hardening
of the arteries.
- (This is not in reference to MGPP-only to the
latex-but is noteworthy research on other uses for
Papain.) Dr. Manual Gomez de la Maza, Professor of
Medicine at the University of Havana, established that,
“the milky sap of the papaya tree fruit digested the
necrose cartilage squeezed between the spinal vertebra.”
He also developed a protocol against tumors, including
malignancies. In his books he described how it was
possible to remove any tumor without surgery. The method
consisted of injecting fresh papaya latex into the tumor
and then after waiting 15 minutes, pumping out the
resulting foul smelling mass, thus reducing the tumor
size in a matter of minutes. The Papain rich papaya latex
has the property of digesting fibrin which makes up the
mass of neoplasms, such as warts, fibromas and cancerous
tumors. It also digests the fibrin which makes up the
bulk of the callouses and corns on the feet and also the
necrose tissue squeezed between the vertebra in back
injuries such as a “slipped disc.” Thank you, Dr. Manual
Gomez de la Maza, for this valuable information.
- Papaya is the only known food containing Papain, the
active principal enzyme in MGPP. Remember, it digests
protein thoroughly and frees the amino acids for quick
absorption by the body. Since it acts impartially in
acid, neutral and alkaline mediums, it is extremely
valuable for the aged or anyone who has weak digestion
due to enzyme deficiencies developed over the years.
These 12 points establish MGPP as a superior food,
ensuring proper digestive activity. Mature Green Papaya
Powder is a true super food.
