7-keto7-keto: Pawpaw extracts may stimulate mitochondria via a hormonal mechanism. The oxidoreductase system that pawpaw extracts have been proposed to affect is located in the mitochondrial membrane. The combined use of 7-keto and pawpaw extract could antagonize each other's effects.
AntioxidansAntioxidans: Pawpaw extracts are hypothesized to be oxidative.
