What Is PapillexTM ?
Papillex™ is a clinically-researched, nutrient-rich supplement designed to support your immune system in response to viral infections like HPV. Papillex™ optimizes your natural immunity and replaces key nutrients that have been found to be missing and low in people with persistent HPV symptoms.
Studies have demonstrated that through nutritional support, HPV symptoms such as genital warts, cervical dysplasia, and other HPV-related conditions can be managed.
Why watch and wait, when you can be proactive?
Research and Ingredients
Papillex™ helps to support a healthy-functioning immune system and corrects nutritional deficiencies. The Papillex™ formula combines a series of high potency ingredients that have been shown in multiple research studies to support the immune system in response to HPV.
Our formulation contains high-quality, pure ingredients, sourced from North America. They are regularly tested to ensure that they are free of chemicals and by-products, and exceed FDA and Health Canada standards for quality. The Papillex™ formula is contained within vegan veggie-capsules.
Lycopene & Carotenoids
Studies have shown that those with low levels of carotenoids have an increased risk of persistent HPV infections.1 High levels of vegetable consumption have been shown to decrease HPV persistence by more than 50%.2 Higher levels of lycopene are associated with decreased risk of CIN 3 and cervical cancer.2 This shows the importance of loading up on richly-pigmented vegetables such as peppers, tomatoes, carrots, mangos, sweet potatoes, spinach and kale to support overall balance.
A daily serving of Papillex™ contains the equivalent of 3/4 cup of frozen cooked spinach, 3 cups of raw carrots, or 2.5 cups of raw cantaloupe daily.

Broccoli Sprout Extract
Indole-3-carbinol, DIM, and sulphoraphane are powerful metabolites found in broccoli family vegetables that support the body in the repair of DNA damage and have been shown to lower the risk of cancer.3,4,5 These important ingredients are found in: cabbage, broccoli, broccoli sprouts, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and kale.
To garner the same benefit as a daily serving of Papillex™, you would need to eat 1 head of broccoli, 2 cups of Brussels sprouts, or 2.8 cups of raw cabbage per day.

Vitamin B9 Folate
Folate is a water-soluble B vitamin. Studies have found that individuals with a folate deficiency have an increased risk of positive HPV status, as well as an increased risk of progression to cervical and oral cancer.6,7,8,9 Folic acid is important for managing HPV. Folate rich foods include: dark green leafy vegetables (such as: spinach, asparagus and Brussels sprouts), nuts and beans, and liver.
A daily serving of Papillex contains the equivalent of 5oz of poultry liver, 4 cups of chickpeas, or 40 spears of asparagus.

A powerful antioxidant; research studies conclude that individuals with higher Vitamin C levels have a lower HPV viral load, and decreased frequency of the development of oral and cervical cancer.10,11,12 Foods highest in Vitamin C include: yellow bell peppers, guavas, dark green vegetables (especially kale and turnip greens), kiwi and broccoli. It is important that those with HPV get enough vitamin C. For this reason, we have included it in the Papillex formula.
A daily serving of Papillex™ contains the equivalent of 1/2 yellow pepper, 1 guavas or 2 cups of kale.

Camelia sinensis is a broad term for the types of shrubs and plants used to produce tea. Green tea has long been known as a powerful anti-viral and anti-infective plant that stimulates the immune system13. Green tea is often used topically for genital warts and cervical dysplasia. Orally, green tea intake has been associated with slowed progression and decreased risk of cancer through its powerful antioxidant effects14. This is why we’ve included green tea extract in our formula to help respond to HPV.
A daily serving of Papillex™ contains the equivalent of 2.5 cups of green tea.

Vitamin E has been shown through clinical studies to inhibit cancer cell growth and support the immune system through its powerful antioxidant capabilities.15 Foods high in Vitamin E include: cooked spinach, almonds, roasted sunflower seeds, avocados and fish.
A daily serving of Papillex™ contains the equivalent of 32 cups of cooked spinach, 3 cups of whole almonds, or 28 whole avocados.
Selenium is an essential trace mineral. Individuals with cervical dysplasia have been reported to have low levels of selenium.16 In recent animal studies, selenium has also been shown to increase cell death in HPV infected cells.17
Selenium is a difficult nutrient to obtain, as many of our soils are depleted of this essential mineral. Foods that are generally higher in selenium include: brazil nuts, oysters, tuna and sunflower seeds.

A Healthy Lifestyle and PapillexTM Work Hand-In-Hand
Make these lifestyle changes and get results faster!
Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables – especially those rich in vitamin A and carotenoids. A recent study in the journal of Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention found that females who consumed large amounts of vegetables were less likely to have persistent HPV. Getting your essential vitamins and minerals will keep your immune system strong.
Be nice to your immune system by leading a healthy lifestyle. Beyond dietary considerations and smoking cessation, aim for adequate sleep, abstain from recreational drugs and alcohol, and avoid high amounts of stress. Many alternative therapies like meditation or acupuncture can help to relieve stress and enhances the body’s resilience against infection and disease.
Drink Green Tea. There is a growing body of evidence that suggests the flavonoid ECGC may inhibit the development of HPV warts and cervical lesions. It is currently undergoing studies for its effectiveness as an HPV treatment.
Quit smoking. Smoking is detrimental to your health in countless ways; there really is no bodily system or vital organ that remains unscathed by this habit. What’s more, according to a study published in the journal of Cancer Causes and Control, smoking doubles the risk of HPV progressing into cervical cancer.
Females should know that long-term use of oral contraceptives has been connected to an increased risk of developing cervical cancer. 99% of all cervical cancers are the result of the HPV virus; however, the Institute for Research on Cancer found that females who have the HPV virus and have used oral contraceptives for five years are nearly four times as likely to develop cervical cancer. The good news is that the risk decreases once you stop taking the birth control pill.
Sweat every day! Exercise decreases stress hormones and can have an anti-inflammatory effect on your body. Exercise is also a great way to improve circulation and detoxification.
