Papaya: One of the best fruits for digestion!

Papayas are commonly used to aid digestion. The papain enzyme found in papaya helps digest proteins and also cleanses the digestive tract. This ensures a reduced conversion of protein into body fat. If the protein in our diet is not digested properly, it may cause arthritis, constipation, diabetes, high blood pressure and other related health conditions. Crazy how digestion effects all areas of our bodies!

It’s also a natural remedy for constipation and other symptoms from severe digestive disorders.

PAPAYA SEEDS BENEFITS (yes, you can eat them too!)

Parasites:
It’s pretty well known by now that papaya seeds can help expel parasites because they contain an alkaloid “Carpaine” that kills intestinal worms and ameba parasites. (source)

Kidney Function:
One study found that papaya seed extract helped prevent kidney damage. Since papaya seeds are rich in certain antioxidants that block oxidative damage to your cells and protect kidney health, they are something to keep in mind when thinking of your kidneys.

Anti-Cancer Properties:
This test-tube study found that papaya seed extract helped reduce inflammation and protect against cancer development.
And another test-tube study showed that black papaya seeds decreased the growth of prostate cancer cells!
