The delectable papaya fruit is not only rich in antioxidants and multiple vitamins such as A, C and E, but researchers have discovered that other parts of the papaya tree, mainly the papaya leaf, have many health benefits.
This tropical tree native to Mexico and the Northern regions of South America, can now be found in 60 countries worldwide. In the United States papayas are grown in California, Texas and Florida but 95% of papaya exports come from “The Big Island,” Hawaii due to its splendid, year-round fruit-bearing climate.
The papaya leaf has been recognized worldwide for its powerful medicinal qualities ranging from promoting balanced blood sugar, digestive functions, anti-viral and inflammatory effects to promoting healthy hair and skin while also improving the immune system. If there was ever a time in history for everyone to gain a much-needed boost in our immune system, it would be now! Another amazing benefit from papaya leaf powder is that it provides anti-carcinogenic properties. This “It” powder is one that packs quite the powerful punch!
The papaya is a heart-healthy fruit which has had a tumultuous time on Earth, having encountered a devasting virus that almost completely brought it to extinction twice during the 1900’s. The virus known as the Papaya Ring Spot Virus (PRSV) was first detected amongst crops in 1937, became more widespread during the 1940’s and most devastatingly impacted papaya crops in the 1990’s. Thankfully, researchers were able to create a GMO that saved the papaya from complete annihilation.
GMO tends to be an icky word that most health-conscious consumers like to see the prefix “non” placed in front of, however, if it were not for a GMO, papayas would have been most likely ravaged from PRSV and not present in grocery stores today. After the devastating impact PRSV had on the papaya industry, places like Hawaii quarantined themselves by restricting outside fruits and vegetables from being brought onto the islands.
Nonetheless, in 1992 the virus emerged in Hawaii threatening the papaya industry once again, and if it were not for the transgenic papayas that were genetically modified with an immunity to PRSV, the papaya industry would have certainly been doomed to extinction.
With a long list of health perks, the papaya leaf powder’s most prominent medicinal benefit is its properties which aid in the relief of symptoms from dengue fever. A potentially fatal, mosquito-borne virus, dengue fever can be transmitted to humans causing severe flu-like symptoms that are ugly and not a walk in the park to recover from. With no cure for dengue fever, papaya leaf remains one of the strongest treatments for managing its symptoms to date.
Many studies have been done on this green potent powder and it has been concluded that Papaya leaf powder can improve the immune system and reduce inflammation. So, how do you add papaya leaf powder to your diet? Great question! This extract contains beta-carotene, Vitamin C, calcium, niacin, papain and tannins and has versatility in the ways it can be absorbed into the body.
In cosmetics, papaya leaf powder can be added to facial masks, lip balm and lotions using a transdermal approach to enrich the skin. Ingesting a half of a teaspoon of papaya leaf powder with some honey after meals is recommended to gain all of the medicinal qualities this extract possesses.
Some other benefits that may be obtained from adding papaya leaf powder into your daily or weekly regimen are support of your digestive functions and the promotion of antioxidants. Uncomfortable negative digestive symptoms like heartburn, constipation and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) may be relieved due to the fiber and papain that are found in this powder. These nutrients are known for supporting general digestive health by insuring proper functioning of the digestive system.
Antioxidants can also be found in many fruits such as blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and in many vegetables as well. Antioxidants are important to include in your diet because they remove free radicals from the body. When free radicals run amuck in the body they can cause serious illness. Papaya Leaf powder contains several antioxidant properties such as vitamin E and flavonoids.
With all the differing delivery methods that one can use to benefit from papaya leaf powder, there really is no excuse not to integrate it in some form into your diet or beauty regimen. What are you waiting for? Your papaya leaf powder awaits…
