Raw Green Papaya is an incredibly healthy fruit naturally packed with powerful vitamins, enzymes and phytonutritents. Raw Green papaya contains vital nutrients including potassium, magnesium and vitamins A, C, E and B. The benefits of green papaya are not just limited to its own nutrition. Green papaya has a synergistic effect when combined with other nutrient dense foods as it improves the digestion and uptake of nutrients. Raising enzyme levels and improving assimilation within the body also helps fortify the body's natural immune response.
Green papaya contains two of the most powerful plant proteolytic enzymes: papain and chymopapain. These enzymes are effective at breaking down proteins, fats and carbs as well as aiding healthy digestion. The enzyme papain can only be found in the papaya fruit and is superior to the pepsin produced by our own stomachs. Unlike our natural pepsin which is only activated when in an acidic environment, the papain found in the Green Papaya can digest protein in any pH stomach environment; alkaline, acid or neutral pH. Papain converts proteins into essential amino acids such as arginine, which cannot be produced by the body. These enzymes are also helpful in digesting carbohydrates and fats so Green Papaya is most beneficial to people with enzyme deficiencies or those with a low stomach acid output. The two enzymes found in this fruit work together to soothe and calm the digestive system and can also aide those with ulcers.
Green papaya can be useful for most gastrointestinal ailments; from easing indigestion to enhancing your bodies defense of colon cancer. The enzyme carpaine present in the green papaya possesses an antiseptic quality that helps prevent an overgrowth of undesirable intestinal bacteria and parasites while creating a well balanced environment for beneficial intestinal flora to flourish. It is extremely beneficial to cleaning the dead tissue and waste matter from the intestinal walls and is even known to dissolve pus and mucus. Carpaine in green papaya may also be helpful in alleviating hardening of the arteries by assisting to dissolve injured or hardened tissue.
