Papaya Leaf Tea Ideal Temp at 140F to 158F


Two protein dissolving enzymes in the papaya leaf, papain and chymopapain, have been given credit for their effect against cancer.

According to the BIOZYM Corporation of Hamburg, Germany, papain operates at an ideal temperature of 140F to 158F (60C-70C). This is WHY papaya leaf is best taken in your body as a tea.

Chymopapain operates similar to papain but ideal temp is 98F, according to BRENDA, the comprehensive enzyme information system.
