Hi Folks,

Here is an image of a pair a papaya fruit. The one in green is already matured and will turn yellow/orange when it ripes like its neighbour.

Benefit and uses of Papaya.

•The papaya not only for food, but also for healing wounds, for supporting a weak liver, for healing constipation, against worms and parasites, for healing inflammation and skin problems and even for treating cancer.

•The papaya contains a lot of minerals like Potassium, Magnesium and Calcium and is the most alkaline fruit.

•Papaya contains vitamin A which accelerates the formation of new cells, it protects the external layers of the skin, vitamin c is an anti-oxidant, and builds capillary strength, protein the skin can be benefited with improved smoothness, softness, and resiliency.

•Green papaya may increase nutrient absorption and help to create a healthier intestinal tract.

•Green papaya has also been used for over acidity or borderline ulcers as less stomach acid is required for digestion when abundant enzymes are ingested.

•Papaya is good for many digestive disorders and is excellent for improving poor digestion. It has also been recommended as part of the treatment for cancer. Therapeutically it can often be combined with pineapple juice in which there is another important enzyme, bromelain.

Marco Polo credited the fruit with saving the lives of his sailors when they were attacked with scurvy.

Vasco-da-Gama called papaya as the golden tree of life.

Magellan regarded it as a valuable article of diet.

Christopher Columbus reportedly called it "the fruit of the angels" and not without reason! Papayas are rich sources of antioxidant nutrients, minerals and fibre.

Many of the ancient explorers found that the natives could tenderize tough meat or fowl by wrapping it in green papaya leaves overnight before cooking. Some¬times the juice or slices of unripe fruit were simply rubbed over the meat which served as a great meat tenderizer.

Thanking you in advance for viewing and your kind words.
