Health Benefits of Papaya Fruit - Where to Buy Papaya Juice

If you are searching for where to buy papaya juice, you have landed on the correct online health store

If you want to lose weight naturally or you are suffering from heartburn, acid reflux, GERD, or irritable bowel syndrome, then papaya is the best fruit for you. Papaya fruit belongs to the Caricaceae family of trees and is cultivated in many tropical countries. Papaya leaves and papaya fruit juice are rich in active ingredients of papain, organic acids, resins, vitamin A, vitamin B, and vitamin C. Papain is an enzyme that degrades protein in our stomach. Papain is used in digestive therapy to compensate for the lack of gastroduodenal and pancreatic secretions. In external use, active ingredients in papaya fruit work as a powerful anti-inflammatory that allows natural fractionation of collagen fibers. This anti-inflammatory action of papain allows the treatment of localized edema in tonsillitis and pharyngitis. You can find millions of products containing purified and crude papain in the health food stores. In homeopathy, carica papaya 5CH helps in regulation of nervous system. The papaya cannot miss on your lunch or dinner table for various reasons. The first reason is for its versatility and flavor. You can eat papaya alone or take it in combination with other fruits like mango, apple, and grapes in the form of salad or in form of juice. Papaya is also served with meat and fish recipes. The second reason is because it helps in alleviation of discomfort of pregnancy, such as digestion problems.

Health Benefits of Papaya - Contents of Papaya Fruit

As mentioned above, papaya fruit contains an enzyme, papain, which aids in digestion of food proteins, similar to pepsin which is another enzyme found in our digestive juices. Papaya fruit is therefore very suitable in treatment of heartburn and acid reflux disease. The action of papain binds carpaine, an alkaloid, which acts on the bile fluid. Both of these substances, i.e., papain and carpaine, when combine together help in digestion of meat and heavy foods inside our stomach. The carpaine also helps in activation of blood circulation inside our body. This beneficial property of carpaine is very interesting at the time of pregnancy when hormonal imbalances cause increase in blood flow and due to the weight of the fetus on uterus, a pregnant female’s blood flow gets decreased through the veins and arteries.

Benefits of Papaya for Weight Loss

Papaya is rich in fiber content that helps in prevention of constipation and according to many naturopathics, eating papaya on a daily basis helps in weight loss. It also helps in prevention of hemorrhoid or varicose vein formation of the legs.

Benefits of Papaya for Flu

A papaya fruit contains up to five times more vitamin C than a kiwi and up to ten times more vitamin C than an orange so it is indicated to prevent cold and cough and flu-like symptoms.

Now read how papaya has benefited me and my family

I use to go to park everyday in the morning for exercise and jogging. I spend sometimes around 30 minutes inside the park and sometimes 1 hour depending on my time constraints. A fresh fruit seller who is sells fresh and totally ripened papayas sits just opposite to the park gate and I buy my papaya from there. My wife, my father, and my 2-year-old angle love eating papaya empty stomach in the morning. When I reach my house, we all have it together to get rid of all the toxins through the excretory system. My little angel had constipation when she was one year old and now she has not. Even I was suffering from irritable bowel syndrome but after eating papaya on a daily basis plus also eating fiber containing food mostly salads, I am able to get rid of IBS. My wife is having PCO in which there is uncontrolled weight gain but papaya helps her in reducing and maintaining weight. Papaya is easily available in India. We are blessed with this wonder fruit. It is very very beneficial. Just try it.

I guarantee to you that if you are having any problems with heartburn or acid reflux and you do not want to take over the counter medications, then just do one thing. Eat one 1-12 kg papaya empty stomach early in the morning as soon as you get up from sleep. Don't brush also. The papaya should be the first thing in the morning after freshening up. Do this for two or three days and you will see that all your heartburn and acid reflux problems will go away and your previously bloated belly will become smooth and soft. You will have much more appetite to eat more food but at the same time you will get rid of waste and fats easily with the help of papaya. Do this and let me know. I guarantee it will work. It has worked for me. I know we hubbers are all working on computers all day long and due to that and inactivity we experience bloating and heartburn.

For benefits of papaya juice, I have already written above but it is very important to learn how to select a papaya. You must also learn what is the best time to eat papaya? How to know your papaya is ready for eating? For answers to all these questions, visit

I am sorry Monica I could not find any local fruit shop in your area but you can opt for Melissa's Exotic Fruit Club Subscription via this link

and get fruits delivered to your home address.

Try 3 Month Subscription to Melissa's Exotic Fruit Club

At Melissa’s, never heard fruits are selected at their peak of perfection and packed by hand in order to ensure their safe arrival. Family, business associates, friends will be happy to see their favorite fruits in delightful packages.

If you don't want to buy from here, you can try the amazon widget directly above this comment box and buy organic dried papaya but it is not fresh as much as buying from a local fruit store that is why I had not added an amazon widget for papaya fruit in the front part of this article and added where to buy papaya juice only because it can be preserved for long time.

Monica 6 years ago

Thank you so much, I went to Melissas web page, and they have an amazing selection of fresh fruits. I sent an email to try to find how to get papaya every month from them.

I need it for my almost 12 months little girl, she get really constipated and papaya works miracles in her, has lots of vitamins also, she is SO healthy since she eats papaya every morning, besides she loves it.

We´ve been living in El Salvador with my husband, a Central America country and papaya was available ALL the time all year around.

I hope they can help us. Thank you for the link.

Do not like the taste of papaya to much but going to try and eat more, any idea if it helps with blood circulation?

soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Frankly, I don't know much about Papaya in terms of blood circulation and how it helps in that case but I know a lot of benefits of papaya in terms of digestion as me myself use to eat at least three papayas in a week now. profile image 6 years ago from Austin, TX, USA

I love most fruits, but for some reason I don't like the taste of the papayas. At least the Maradol variety. The smaller strawberry papayas are pretty good.

I also have had an after meal chewable tablet with papaya enzymes to aid with digestion. I assume it is full of papain!

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Hi Steve, thanks for the comment. I do not know what kind of papaya comes in your area but the papaya which comes in my area is a very tasty and delicious. If you live in America, you can search for a local store selling imported papayas, especially of that of Indian variety. One tip for you, if you don't like the taste of papaya so much, then to make it tasty don't eat the unripe papaya and rather keep it for 1 to 2 days outside your refrigerator and cover it with a piece of newspaper. I guarantee that it will taste delicious when you will cut it in ripe form. Also, you can ask the shopkeeper from where you purchase your papaya about the ripeness of the fruit at the time of purchasing.

One more thing, for enhancing its taste, cut the papaya in small pieces and put the pieces in a plate and now sprinkle a bit of Indian chat masala on the pieces and eat them. Best of luck.

Lots of papaya cousins here in the Philippines too! Many Filipinos swear by the effects of papaya, it smooths the skin rather well. Here in my country, we've got papaya-based soaps, lotion, face wash, body wash and so much more :) Many of these products are all-natural, which is so good for the skin.

Green papaya (the one that is just starting to grow on the tree) can be pealed, cut in small portions and boiled in water. This water is mixed with the babies milk or food and it helps incredibly well with passing gas and vowel movements. Back home (Cuba) is constantly used that way when the babies are too small to eat or drink. It works wonders.
