Medical Benefits Of Papaya And Various Uses Of Each Part

In a previous post, I mentioned the amazing benefits of papaya both for the adults and children. Here, I'll like to show you cool medicinal benefits of papaya and how you can use each of the part (seeds, leaves, peels) to cure a disease or heal a wound/scar. You'll be surprised by the numerous things your regular papaya can do for you. Do you even know that papaya is one of the top anti-cancer foods? Very good for controlling dandruff? Cures nausea and morning sickness? Many of us don't know that Papaya is one of the best super-foods we tend to think little of and so we don't see it more than a regular fruit for appetizer. Well, I guess that's going to change now after you get to see all the properties and benefits of your papaya. 

Here's how you can consume your papaya:
- Raw: You can enjoy raw papaya to take advantage of its various nutrients and rich flavor. However, keep in mind that as papaya ripens, the amount of enzymes dwindles.
- Ingredient: You can enjoy papayas exotic taste and healthy nutritional properties as an ingredient in various preparations, such as salads, stir fries and smoothies.
- Supplements: Papaya supplement pills contain high and standardized amounts of papain, acting as an easy and effective aid for healthy digestion among others.  

Here are the amazing powers of each part of the papaya.
