Hi

* Papaya contains the digestive enzyme papain and therefore valuable for aiding digestion.
* The unique protein-digesting enzymes; papain and chymopapain have been shown to help lower inflammation and to improve healing from burns in addition to helping in digestion of proteins. The antioxidant nutrients found in papaya, including vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene, are also very good at reducing inflammation.
* The ripe fruit is easily digestible and prevents constipation.
* Case studies indicate that this food taken alone for two or three days has a highly beneficial tonic effect upon the stomach and intestines.
* The juice of the papaya aids in relieving infections of the colon and has a tendency to break down pus and mucus reached by the juice.
* May help prevent cancer in organs and glands with epithelial tissue (ripe papaya). Papaya’s fiber is able to bind to cancer-causing toxins in the colon and keep them away from the healthy colon cells. In addition, papaya’s folate, vitamin C, beta-carotene, and vitamin E have each been associated with a reduced risk of colon cancer
* Prevents nausea (includes morning sickness and motion sickness)
* The seeds are antihelmintic, for expelling worms and they are given with honey. Chew and swallow two teaspoonfuls of seeds after each principal meal (three times a day).
* Papayas may be very helpful for the prevention of atherosclerosis and diabetic heart disease. Papayas are an excellent source of vitamin C as well as a good source of vitamin E and vitamin A (through their concentration of pro-vitamin A carotenoid phytonutrients), three very powerful antioxidants.
* Papayas are also a good source of fiber, which has been shown to lower high cholesterol levels.

Keep sharing and reading
Thanks
