fruitpapaya 210x131 The Natural Benefits of Papaya Leaf Extract

As alternative medicine grows in popularity, people are beginning to search everywhere for natural, health-promoting foods and supplements. It seems apparent that organic food rises far above conventional in helping to maintain a healthy body, but even organic food is highly depleted in nutrients compared to decades ago. There is little way around natural supplementation today, as soil is depleted and mainstream vitamins provide little or no benefit. People can utilize the health benefits of turmeric, vitamin D, and cacao, but there are other very powerful supplements out there that will contribute to incredible health.

Papaya Leaf Extract a Powerful Health Booster

One supplement you should not overlook is Papaya Leaf Extract. Papayas are excellent sources of dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, and folate, while at the same time being rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, and carotenes. Papayas also contain high amounts of enzymes called papain and chymopapain, which are critical ingredients for a healthy body. Enzymes are responsible for almost every aspect of life and health, and are needed to help control all mental and physical functions.

So what are the real uses for papaya leaf extract ? The beneficial properties surrounding papaya have been known for generations, but they are now just gaining back some attention. Some of the healing properties papayas provide are:

  • Increased quality of proteins in whole organism.
  • Revitalization of the human body and a maintaining of energy and vitality.
  • Encouraged renewal of muscle tissue.
  • Supported cardiovascular system.
  • Strengthened immune system
  • Help with the digestive system by breaking down proteins and supporting production of digestive enzymes.
  • Treatment for skin wounds that don’t heal quickly.
  • Prevention of cataract formation.
  • Lowered risk of emphysema in smokers and passive smokers thanks to high vitamin D content.
  • Alleviated inflammation.
  • Help with nausea and constipation.
  • Fighting various cancers and aiding the cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems.
Although papaya leaf extract is often viewed as an excellent treatment for digestive disorders as well as disturbances of the gastrointestinal tract, it provides many more health benefits than just that (as outlined above). The papain enzyme found in papaya has also been utilized around the world to eliminate parasites within the body.

    I had purchased a 4 fluid ounces bottle of papaya leaf extract for my mother who had very low platellet count due to
    4 stage leukemia. But unfortunately, by the time I received this bottle in the mail, my mother had passed away and
    I was left with this bottle unopened.
    I have been wondering if I can use it as a supplement even though I am very healthy.
    If so, how much can I take this daily as a supplement with out giving me any adverse effects.
    Thank you.

Funny? After taking her off prednisone, adding vitamin k papaya milkthistle and sum greens to her diet ( without vets knowledge) the following bloodtest was Remarkably healthy…..Then i told them the facts and that prednisone was weaned day on day off weeks prior…..Their reply was Omg as if i was trying to kill the bellabear….They will Never zee her again.

      that true, i have proven it many times with my wife and kids and even to myself when i had dengue too a month ago. We also suggested to our neighbors this papaya leaf extract and i challenge them that their patient will be out of the hospital in the next 24 hours and it happened. I thanked God for giving us ahead this plant.

    • Arnel C. Agravante

      well you can do it by yourself, gather at least 20-30 leaves only, pound them and drink at least 1/2 a glass of extract for immediate effect, you see improvements in less than two hours in a dengue patient condition.

    Beware of certain varieties of Papaya. It is one of the fruits that are most frequently genetically modified. Shop with caution when purchasing this product.

    • Len Hobson

      Not true! I have farmed with Papaya in south Africa for 50 years and all our seed is from natural cross pollination done in the orchards.

      • anjan

        Hi Len, What is "not true"? Is the portion wherein Anonymous, in his post above has said that certain variety of Papaya found in the market can be "genetically modified ones" OR is the whole article "not true" ?
