Made from freshly-picked papaya, the pear-shaped tropical fruit that’s golden yellow to orange in color. The best quality papaya comes from Hawaii, where the rich volcanic soil, warm sun and frequent showers create ideal growing conditions. That’s why Hawaiian papaya is the only variety we use. The active ingredient in papaya is papain, an enzyme found in indigestion remedies. Papain stimulates the production of mucous, which coats and soothes membranes of the esophagus and stomach, quiets inflammatory bowel syndrome, aids in protein digestion, and stimulates the appetite.
