abstract of a study regarding kiwi and protein digestion. Enzymes from the fruit aid in the breakdown of protein. Could possibly benefit those of us who struggle to maintain a steady rate of peristalsis while bulking and eating very high quantities of protein.

Green kiwifruit consumption has long been thought to assist in the digestion of food proteins due to the presence of the proteolytic enzyme actinidin. This chapter reviews the recent findings of both in vitro and in vivo studies on the effect of green kiwifruit (which contain the enzyme actinidin) on the gastro- and small-intestinal digestion of a range of common food proteins and protein-rich foods including milk, meat, fish, eggs, legumes, and cereal proteins. Clear evidence is provided that green kiwifruit, and the enzyme actinidin itself, can provide enhanced upper-tract digestion (particularly gastric) of a variety of food proteins, which lends support to a role for dietary kiwifruit as a digestive aid. Kiwifruit influences the digestion patterns of food proteins to varying extents. For some protein sources, digestion in the presence of green kiwifruit resulted in a substantially greater digestion of intact protein, and different peptide patterns were produced compared with those seen after digestion with mammalian digestive enzymes alone. Kiwifruit extract alone (in the absence of other digestive enzymes) has been observed to be capable of digesting some proteins present in foods, particularly those in yoghurt, cheese, fish, and raw eggs. An in vivo (pig) study including a positive control of added actinidin and a negative control where the actinidin in green kiwifruit had been inactivated showed conclusively that actinidin is responsible for the enhanced gastric hydrolysis of food proteins.

Bromelain is what I think about when it comes to protein digestion too. I take 2 caps per day and also eat fresh pineapple every day too. It's great for inflammation amongst others things too.

Been using papaya enzymes for a while now to help with protein digestion. The brand I use contains papain, bromelain, protease, lipase, cellulase, and alpha-amylase. It really helps you digest big protein meals.

Make sure you buy ORGANIC.
True, theres a lot of bullshit and scam around organic but is better than nothing. At least try. Conventional fruits and veggies are absolutely polluted and contaminated with highly toxic chemicals.

Is this actually a good thing? Isn't it pretty much what you experience with intestinal permeability?
