Papaya grows in a tropical area with good rainfall. It does not grow in a colder region as that temperature is not suitable for its growth.

Papaya is a fruit that contains bitter seeds which are helpful to enhance digestion, prevent infections and cancer. A study suggests drinking its leaf extract helps to increase platelet count in dengue fever. This way, not only fruit but its seeds and even leaves are also beneficial for health.

Here are the top 5 health benefits of papaya:

1. Boosts digestion:

Papaya contains papain (enzyme) that is beneficial to improve digestion. It is also loaded with fiber which helps to regularise bowels and prevent constipation. Thus eating a bowl of ripe papaya can help you manage digestive ailments.

2. Irregular periods:

Papaya is rich in carotene, which helps to regulate estrogen (hormone). As a result, it helps to induce periods. So, women having trouble with regular periods can enjoy eating it, especially a week before the expected menstruation date.

Papaya is high in Vitamin K, which helps to absorb calcium. Due to this, it is an excellent fruit to improve bone health and strengthen them.

Papaya is a rich source of fiber, making it one of the best options for a person who has diabetes. It helps to keep you full for longer and enables you to control blood sugar levels.

Papaya is high in fiber, folic acid, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and antioxidants. All these nutrients are helpful to maintain health.
