The Profile

Botanical Names Carica papaya L.
English Name Pawpaw, Custard Apple, Melon Tree, Papaya.
Telugu Name Boppai
Family Caricaceae.
Medicinal Parts Leaves, fruits (ripe or unripe), latex.
Papaya cures haemorrhagic diseases, and is especially beneficial in the treatment of piles.
Nearly every inch of a papaya tree possesses medicinal properties.
Papaya Leaves
The leaves contain carpaine, an alkaloid which is reported to show anti-tumour activity in vitro against leukaemia. Traditionally, the leaves are used in relieving muscle pain and curing festering wounds, ringworm, etc.
Papaya Root
The root is abortifacient and diuretic. Internally, it is administered for checking irregular bleeding from the uterus.

The Papaya Fruit
The papaya fruit is loaded with carotenes (which take part in the production of Vitamin A inside the human body), potassium, (which helps in the maintenance of balance between fluids inside and outside human cells) and enzymes (which work as catalysts in innumerable chemical reactions constantly taking place inside the human body).

It contains a powerful enzyme called papain, which is similar to pepsin found in our stomach. It prevents improper protein breakdown in the system, thus preventing many allergies and stomach ailments.

The unripe fruit is laxative and diuretic. The dried and salted fruit reduces enlarged liver and spleen.
The ripe fruit is useful in cases of bleeding piles and dyspepsia. It helps in removing urinary concretions and is used for treatment of haemoptysis and wounds in the urinary tract.

The Papaya Seeds
The seeds possess antibiotic and antifungal properties. The Juice of seeds is administered in cases of bleeding piles, enlarged liver and spleen conditions.

Like the legendary apple, a papaya a day can also keep the doctor away.
