DESCRIPTION

Papaya, Carica papaya

Papaya is a widely cultivated tropical fruit tree. It is a large single stem tree with fruit that are a type of berry. Both the fruit and leaves are of medicinal value.

Papaya is an enzyme-rich plant that revitalizes the body. We utilize the leaf of Papaya, which acts on the digestive, immune, endocrine and integumentary (skin) systems. By activating digestion and promoting white cell production, the robust antioxidants found in Papaya are able to locate and eliminate free radicals in the body. Papaya leaf promotes proper digestion, elimination and detoxification while simultaneously supporting skin, liver and kidney health.

Culturally, Papaya leaf has been used to treat dengue fever, malaria, gastric ulcers and is currently being studied for its anti-cancer properties.
