Papaya: the fruit of good health

Fruit of good health is called papaya in Mexico, a tropical fruit with sweetness and countless properties. It contains a very important ingredient called papain, which has a therapeutic effect mainly in the digestive system. It also contains fibrin, a substance easily assimilable and valuable because it helps the coagulation of internal and external wounds.

Therapeutic Applications

Green Papaya: the juice of unripe papaya (green) has an effect more active than the mature papaya. This juice helps repair deficiencies such as stomach ulcers and gastritis. In addition, the juice is excellent to combat constipation and inflammation caused by stomach gas and indigestion in a relatively short time. If you want to have an excellent digestion and help your digestive processes to avoid exhausting, prepare the following juice. Keep in mind that beauty begins in the stomach: a stomach with a clean and smooth operation is reflected in your skin, hair and face, because you not only notice that your stomach feels lighter and healthier but your skin is cleaned of impurities and has more youthful appearance and smoothness.

Mix everything and drink fasting for 15 days. Then you can go to exchange with other juices. If you noticed that the juice will cause stomach aches, some diarrhea, and even nausea, do not be scared. This juice is cleansing your body and reactions are very normal. If you really do not tolerate, let rest for a day and then continue.

Yellow, orange or green Papaya

Any papaya is unsurpassed as a remedy for almost all infections, both internally and externally.

This makes me so sad that I don't like papaya, for some reason it's one of the only fruits that I just really can't tolerate. I know that papaya is loaded with all sorts of benefits for health, so I've considered using it in smoothies with other fruits to mask the flavor. Any suggestions?

Use with coconut milk and bananas - the ripe papaya that is. I have never tried the green one myself

I was not sure about the many benefits of the papain and of course the papaya but now I am very surprised, just look to all those many factors that make papaya one of my favorite fruits now, so now I am going to try more of this fruit but I always combined it with orange, I am going to change that

Quiiera saber donde puedo conseguir papaya amarilla . La unica que se consigue en la region Norte de Mexico es la clase Maradol . La he buscado en Nuevo Laredo , Monterrey y Saltillo y los fruteros no me han sabido explicar porque ya no llega a los Mercados de Abastos cuando antes era mas abundante que la injertada de Mamey (Maradol) . Gracias de Antemano .
