This tropical plant in many countries of the world, because of its medicinal properties and wide therapeutic use, has received specific names: the golden tree of life, the fruit of longevity, the zucchini of health, and so on. The basic mechanism of action of the papaya is due to the abundance of enzymes, vitamins, minerals and mineral fibers in the fruit, petal, stem and leaves.
Papaya (Carica Papaya) is a type of tropical fruit with a yellow-orange color that grows in clusters and has more black seeds in the middle. It is a fruit of the tree of the genus Caricae. It grows 5-10 meters in height, and has spirally arranged leaves.
There are about 45 species of papaya. The fruit has a greenish or yellow bark, while the color of the pulp varies from orange, rose to red. Papa’s flesh is soft, juicy and mild. In the middle there are seeds that in Central America are used as a spice-like pepper.
The mature fruit can be used in fresh condition or dried and used as a healthy dessert, for breakfast with muesli or as a cake supplement. Papaya contains an enzyme papain that stimulates digestion of proteins and acts antibacterial. Papaya is a rich source of vitamin A, folic acid, vitamin C, calcium and dietary fiber that improve digestion.
Thai nutritionists are more likely to prescribe Papaya consuming their patients. These are family cacti family members who regulate blood sugar and collect cholesterol, Daily Mail reports.
The fruit is rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants, fiber, calcium, magnesium.
This extraordinary southern fruit has the ability to bond toxins into the small intestine and expel it more quickly from the body, thereby reducing the risk of developing gut cancer. It is used for all types of stomach disorders: dyspepsia, elevated levels of gastric acids and gastric reflux, diarrhea, constipation, dysentery, destruction of intestinal parasites, and more.
Medical research has shown that the papaya also works against liver cancer, probably due to the lycopene ingredient.
The taste is between kiwi and pear. His seeds are eaten.
In addition to papain, many enzymes, sugars and 19 amino acids are isolated in papaya milk (papaya latex). Of these, 8 are essential amino acids that the human organism can not synthesize alone, but must receive it through the diet, and they have the following task:
Isoleucine – is important for the growth and intellectual development of man. There is an important role in the synthesis of some non-essential amino acids.
Leucine – stimulates brain functions, increases the release of energy from muscle tissue.
Lysine – allows the creation of antibodies in the blood, accelerates the growth of cells and improves blood flow.
Methionine – provides better fat degradation, stimulates liver function and soothes the nervous system,
Valin – helps in the coordination of muscle composition and is important for maintaining concentration.
