Paw Paw


Paw Paw provides unique cellular support. Found in the twigs of the Paw Paw tree, acetogenins are uniquely active constituents that help support the body’s antioxidant system and, in turn, contribute to overall health. Our non-GMO Paw Paw was thoroughly researched to provide maximum health benefits.

  • Supports the antioxidant system
  • Provides unique acetogenins for cellular support
  • Featuring non-GMO, Kosher-certified paw paw that is wild-crafted

The active compounds in Paw Paw are a mixture of over 50 acetogenins. Acetogenins are active compounds that affect the production of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) in the mitochondria (the powerhouse) of the cell. ATP is the cells’ major source of energy. Acetogenins selectively modulate the production of ATP in specific cells. Modulating the production of ATP affects the viability of specific cells and may help modulate the blood supply to them. Acetogenins also support and enhance the effectiveness of conventional medical regimens. A clinical study with over 100 participants showed that the paw paw extract, containing a mixture of acetogenins, supports the body’s normal cells during times of cellular stress. Paw Paw Cell-Reg is the only standardized acetogenin product available to regulate specific cells. Nature’s Sunshine uses an extract of the twigs of the North American paw paw tree, which contain the most concentrated amount of acetogenins. These twigs are harvested when they are most biologically active, and the extract is standardized biologically using an invertebrate bioassay. This is a renewable resource since the tree is not harmed during the harvest.

Nature’s Sunshine pioneered the use of paw paw trees for the immune system. Carefully analyzed before its release, Paw Paw was found to have highly concentrated levels of acetogenins. These compounds have the ability to modulate the production of energy in cells. Our wild-crafted trees grow in nutrient-rich soil in the central US where they are harvested using methods that provide for maximum sustainability. Our Paw Paw is non-GMO verified and Kosher-certified.

Launched in the Spring of 2003, Paw Paw quickly became a favorite product for cellular support. Led by Nature’s Sunshine’s science team, Paw Paw material was fully researched for its efficacy and potency. Historically, Paw Paw fruit was grown and consumed by several different Native American tribes. It was also said to be a favorite treat of George Washington! It’s described as a happy blend of cantaloupe, banana, mango and pineapple.
