Papaya and papaya leaf are nature’s those secret treasures which have incredible medical properties and health benefits to beat so many diseases where even medical treatment and doctor failed to cure and lost hope. Well, many are not aware of these natures' wonderful gift to a human while they spent lots of money on medical treatment. It just works like wonders in many health problems where sometimes you and even your doctor lost hope. Although it’s hard to believe but true, “nature is the treasure to cure all our problems, we just need a proper eye to find it.” 

 According to the book Healing Foods by DK Publishing House, papaya is “known to have antibacterial properties and promotes good digestion and almost every part of the plant can be used." While the fruit is rich in contents of vitamin E, C and beta-carotine making it loaded with antioxidant properties, the seeds are rich in fatty acids and papaya oil, have a sharp peppery flavor, and can be used in place of your spices. We will tell you the benefits of papaya leaf juice.  

 Let’s know about the diseases and where we need to include Papaya Leaf in our diet to beat it. 

1. Treats Dengue Fever 

Dengue is one of those major diseases which threats human life. Around 10,000 people in India are caught by Dengue fever every year and more than 5000 people lost their life. There are no specific antiviral medicines for dengue which make it worst. Dengue is transmitted by the bite of Aedesaegypti mosquito infected with any one of the four dengue viruses. Aedesaegepti mosquito bites during daylight hours. A person develops symptoms 3-14 days after the infective bite. Dengue fever severely brings down the blood platelet count and it will decrease day by day even if you are under the surveillance of medical treatment 24*7. 

But papaya leaf works like magic in increasing blood platelet count which is the most necessary part in life-threatening diseases like Dengue. The extracts from papaya leaf are known to help increase the count. 

Bangalore-based nutritionist, Dr. Sheela Krishnaswamy says, "Studies have proved that papaya leaf juice contributes significantly in the production of platelets and increase the platelet count." 

2. Anti-Malarial Properties

It even works in Malaria as well. Papaya leaves have strong anti-malarial properties. A compound found in papaya leaf is acetogenin, which can help prevent dangerous disease like malaria and dengue.  

3. Good for Liver

Just as papaya, papaya leaf juice also works as a potent cleansing agent for the liver, thereby healing many chronic liver diseases, jaundice, and liver cirrhosis. One glass of Papaya juice is enough to clean your liver and maintain your liver health. 

4. Good for Digestion

“Papaya contains enzymes papain and chymonpapain. Both have been shown to aid digestion, prevent constipation and clean the colon. Papain is also helpful in healing and preventing stomach ulcers”,  as per the book Healing Food . 

Papaya leaves have protease and amylase which helps to break down proteins, carbs, and minerals aiding digestion. Its high anti-inflammatory properties also reduce the inflammation of the stomach and colon. The juice can also heal peptic ulcers by killing bacteria H.Pylori owing to its antimicrobial properties.  

6.Reduces Menstrual Pain

Many of us are not aware of it and suffer the most. If you are also a victim of excruciating menstrual cramps and lower abdominal pain during your periods, then go for papaya leaf juice although it tastes horrible.  Papaya leaf juice works wonders to ease the menstrual flow and reduce the pain. Drinking this juice also brings down PMS symptoms. Its potent healing properties balance hormones and regulate menstruation cycles. You can try this to treat your menstrual pain.
