Webinar Transcript

Michael:

Pepain, I’ve never heard anyone else say it out loud, so I don’t know the proper way to pronounce it. But this is one of my favorites, because it comes from papayas, and I like to eat papayas. I first learned of its existence, because I went to a Brazilian steakhouse, and ate my weight in grilled, marinated meats. Then they brought out a papaya sorbet for dessert. I was in the service industry for eight years. I never saw anything like this when I was doing it, and I didn’t know these things when I was a server. The server explained papaya, and the enzyme, and how when you eat way too much food, like I had just done, that eating the papaya sorbet at the end of the meal could actually be helpful. He said, “It makes it so you don’t go home on your couch, and turn into a bowling ball.”

Kiran:

Yeah exactly, and because you were at a Brazilian restaurant, you probably ate a lot of meat. Right, because there are all this, the Brazilian steakhouse, the gaucho style, and-

Michael:

…the swords.

Kiran:

Yeah, with the swords. I mean, I love that meat, and you go crazy. Keep that card on green, and keep it coming. But papain yes, like you said, it’s from papaya. It’s a very well known enzyme. It is great at tenderizing meat too, so you can use it as a marinade in tenderizing meat. But it’s also very good for digestion, and very important for digestion as well. There’s some good studies on the systemic benefits. It works well with bromelain as well. In formulas where you find papain, you’ll often find bromelain. They do work well together to help with joint pain, and joint inflammation. It’s perfectly safe. Great for digestion, and great as a  systemic anti-inflammatory as well.

Michael:

Cool, and tons of research out there on that one.

Kiran:

Yeah papain is well known, and pretty well researched. Like I said before, enzymes rarely work alone together, so I always like to see formulas that have multiple of these enzymes together, because they all do slightly different things. Or vastly different things, depending on what system we’re talking about. In nature, you would find more of a combination of these things in its natural state. So it’s important to see papain with the bromelain, and trypsin, and those kind of things together.

Michael:

And preferably with guys with swords, and giant things of meat. I would like all of my papain to come with that.

Kiran:

Right.

Michael:

I’d always heard of those places, and I never went to one for a long time, which is horrible. Then I went, and it was like, “Where has this been all my life?”

Kiran:

Oh I know.

Michael:

I think there’s something psychological about all you can eat pricing, because then you feel challenged. It’s weird, I’ve been to Fogo de Chao, and Texas de Brazil, in various cities. The price for the dinner is not uniform.

Kiran:

Oh really?

Michael:

No, it’s completely different.

Kiran:

Oh, okay.

Michael:

Vegas, it was $15 cheaper than it is in Chicago. It’s San Diego, it’s $10 more than Chicago.

Kiran:

Wow.
