The fruit of the Papaya, or Pawpaw, (carica papaya) is well known for its nutritional qualities, as an aid to the digestion of proteins and to generally promoting health and healing.
There is also increasing evidence that the leaves may be a valuable means of fighting metabolic disease, and relieving digestive problems. In fact, in the past few decades, papaya has been used extensively sometimes with dramatic results.
All parts of the papaya are reported to be valuable aids to recovery, but especially the leaves, stems and roots. It has long been recommended by the Australian Aborigines as a valuable healer.
Not recommended for pregnant, breast feeding or lactating women or children under the age of 2 unless otherwise recommended by their health care professionals.
The papaya leaf comes with easy to prepare instructions.
