Powerful Papaya

The papaya fruit originates in South and Central America, and it was the Spanish and Portuguese explorers who introduced papayas to other tropical islands. The papaya was so treasured by the explorers that Christopher Columbus himself called it "the fruit of the angels."
Today Brazil is the world’s leading producer of papayas, and other large commercial producers include the United States, Mexico, and Puerto Rico.

Nutritional Benefits

Papayas are a good source of antioxidants such as carotenes, Vitamin C, and flavonoids. They are also a good source of folic acid, vitamins E and A, and potassium.

Cardiovascular Benefits

The leaves of the papaya fruit contain a component called carpaine, and studies have suggested it to be beneficial to cardiovascular health. Further more detailed research is needed to confirm these results.

Lower that Blood Pessure

Preliminary research has concluded that papaya juice contains agents that lower blood pressure. More studies are needed to confirm this research.

Protect yourself from those Parasites

Papaya as well as its seeds have proven to have anti-parasitic and anti-amoebic properties, and their consumption offers a natural, harmless, readily available preventive strategy against intestinal parasites and bugs.
