What are Proteolytic Enzymes?

Posted by Ryan Ebling on

What are Proteolytic Enzymes?

Proteolytic enzymes are essential for many important processes in your body. They’re also called peptidases, proteases or proteinases.

In the human body, they are produced by the pancreas and stomach. 

While proteolytic enzymes are most commonly known for their role in the digestion of dietary protein, they perform many other critical jobs as well.

For example, they are essential for cell division, blood clotting, immune function and protein recycling, among other vital processes.

Food Sources

Two of the best food sources of proteolytic enzymes are papaya and pineapple 🍍.

Papayas contain an enzyme called papain, also known as papaya proteinase. Papain is found in the leaves, roots and fruit of the papaya plant.

Papain is a powerful proteolytic enzyme. In fact, it has been used for thousands of years as a meat tenderizer due to its ability to break down protein

Meanwhile, pineapples contain a powerful proteolytic enzyme called bromelain.

Bromelain is found in the fruit, skin and sweet juice of the pineapple plant and has been used for centuries by the indigenous people of Central and South America as a natural treatment for a number of things like; 

  • Digestion
  • Reducing Inflammation 
  • Promoting Healing & Recovery 
  • Reducing Muscle Soreness 

Complete Body Labs PRO BLEND DIGESTIVE ENZYMES with Probiotics contains both papain and bromelain among other powerful ingredients.
