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 fats.
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 RNAreplication 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.
