Papaya is a fruit found all over the world and it is also one of those rare fruits whose, almost every part can be utilized. Starting from the fruit to the sap, leaves, seeds, stems, flowers and even the bark can be used for healthy living.

A study by the Vegetable Resources of Southeast Asia shows that each 100 grams of papaya contain valuable nutrients like protein, water, carbohydrate, fiber, potassium, phosphorous, calcium, vitamins, riboflavin and fat. So make papaya a part of your daily diet or apply it on the skin externally to benefit from the fruit’s miracles.

Body Slimming – Ripe papaya is rich in enzymes that help in the decomposition of fat in the body. The enzyme also helps in breaking down body proteins, thus helps in weight loss.

Age Defying Property – Vitamin C in papaya acts as a detoxifying agent that purifies the skin from within to get rid of dead skin cells. The fruit encourages skin metabolism by melting dead skin layers; as a result of this skin becomes firmer and looks glowing and wrinkle free for several years after you have aged.

Acne Treatment – Grate unripe papaya and keep it immersed in vinegar overnight. Mash this mixture in the morning and apply on acne affected areas. You can also dilute it with water and use as a skin cleanser if your skin is free from acne.

Cure Dandruff – Use the same papaya vinegar mixture for curing hair dandruff. Mix with lemon juice for best results; then spread on hair and keep for 20 minutes before washing off with mild shampoo.

Get Rid of Skin Roughness – Skin often gets rough during the winters or as you grow older. Do not throw away the skin of ripe papaya. Rather rub it on your face until the pulp gets dry. Get smooth skin immediately. Use grated papaya in foot baths to get rid of hard spots on the sole.

Papaya Bath – Use papaya vinegar mixture, papaya oil and lavender oil in your hot bath. This serves several purposes like relief from body aches, nourishment of skin and is an effective stress buster. Stay in the bath for at least 15 minutes to relax the muscles.

Breast Tightening – Papaya has been used for several generations now for breast firming. The fruit is a rich source of vitamin A that boosts the release of female hormones and stimulates the ovarian functions. Since the mammary glands become more active, the breasts too tighten and grow faster.

Proper Digestion – Papain, an enzyme found in papaya, stimulates digestion. In this way papaya helps to cure constipation and prevents the excessive buildup of mucus in the intestinal walls of the stomach. Papaya is the best natural cure for constipation; once your bowel movements are regular, your skin will also be free of pimples and other blemishes. A clear stomach is the key to glowing skin.

Papaya Juice Therapy – This therapy is especially recommended for women at the stage of menopause. Women at this age are at risk of heart attacks or osteoporosis. Medical studies have proven that if they drink a glass of papaya juice every day, these diseases may be prevented and the menopause cycle, too, runs well.
