The health benefits of papaya seeds
Eating papaya along with its seeds will help you slow down the growth of tumor cells, because they contain phenolic compounds and flavonoids, which have been proven to be natural antioxidants.
Even more, the phytonutrients (which have antioxidant properties that neutralize free radicals in the body before they manage to cause damage to DNA, cell membranes and fat molecules in our body) called isothiocyanates (isothiocyanate - a powerful anti-cancer component) can prevent cancers of breast, prostate, lungs and the colon.
Eliminate toxins from the kidneys
As we mentioned earlier, papaya seeds contain powerful anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, making them the best solution for detoxifying your kidneys.
Eliminate toxins from the liver
Papaya seeds have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for hundreds of years against harmful toxins in the body. The result of using these seeds is the improvement of the vital functions of the liver.
According to many studies, eating papaya is very beneficial for people suffering from fatty liver. You can clean the toxins from your liver by 1 teaspoon a day of papaya seeds.
But even so, you will have to make changes in your diet and lifestyle. For example - you need to stop drinking alcohol in order to get the best results.
Improve digestive health
Papaya seeds have very strong anti-parasitic and anti-bacterial properties which is why they are very effective for improving the digestive system. The main function of these properties is to get rid of micro-organisms (bacteria) from the digestive system.
It is also important to mention that papaya has very strong anti-pathogenic properties as well, which means that eating one tablespoon of papaya seeds can help you against food poisoning. They actually kill the bacteria that are the main cause of the problem.

Lower the blood pressure
Many researchers have done studies with laboratory rats and they have discovered that papaya fruit can significantly improve the health of the heart and blood vessels. The fruit contains a compound called carpaine (carpaine-alkaloid) and it is very effective.
Even more than that, its seeds and leaves are also very helpful when it comes to reducing diastolic blood pressure, systolic and that means arterial blood pressure.
Reduce inflammation and inflammatory diseases
Papaya seeds contain very powerful anti-inflammatory properties and strong enzymes called papain and chymopapain, which are the reasons that these seeds have the ability to fight inflammation in the body such as arthritis, joint pain, asthma and gout.
