What do you look for in your daily intake of fruits and vegetables? Of the many superfruits out there, papaya is often overlooked and passed over due to the inconvenience of finding it at local stores or a lack of knowledge surrounding the fruit.

You may be surprised to learn that papaya is actually one of the best fruits you can put into your body. With its protein-digesting enzyme papain, it’s the perfect choice for improved gut health. It also provides that boost in antioxidants - specifically vitamins A, C, E and beta carotene - that you may be looking for in your fruit intake.

Maybe you already knew all this about papaya fruit, but most people don’t know about the health punch that papaya leaves as well as the seeds pack in. If you’ve eaten papaya in the past, you would probably scoop out the seeds and eat the fruit by itself, but by doing this you are missing out on the many health benefits they provide. The following are reasons why you should always eat your papaya seeds.

Liver Health

Papaya seeds have been used for centuries in Chinese medicine for improving vital functioning of the liver. Because of the cleansing benefits of papaya seeds, they can sometimes be used in people with excessive alcohol consumption.



Digestion

Papaya as a whole aids in digestive health due to the powerful enzyme papain that it contains, and that goes for the seeds as well. Papaya seeds have a high amount of this enzyme, which supports a healthy digestive tract. If you’re dealing with indigestion or other well known digestive issues, a daily intake of papaya seeds can do wonders for keeping a healthy gut.
