Papaya is a fruit that is loved for both its delicious flavor and exceptional nutrient profile. Unfortunately, many people discard the seeds and favor the fruit's sweet flesh. What they don't know is that the seeds have a high nutrition value important to the body. In this article, I am going to highlight to you some of the health benefits of eating papaya seeds.
They are highly nutritious
The seeds contain a variety of micronutrients especially polyphenols and flavanoids, two compounds that act as antioxidants to help promote good health. The seeds also have a good pack od monounsaturated fatty acids including oleic acid.
Can help fight infections
Studies have shown that papaya seeds can destroy certain types of fungi and parasites that cause diseases. Drinking an elixir made of papaya seeds mixed with honey helps to kill intestinal parasites.
Protects kidney function
Kidneys play an integral role in your body health by acting as filters to remove the excess fluid from your blood. Eating seeds of papaya helps to preserve the health and increased functioning of the kidney. Papaya seeds are rich in antioxidants which can help to block oxidative damage to your cells and hence protect your kidneys.
Improves digestive health
Like other many seeds, papaya seeds are packed with lots of fiber. Fiber goes through the digestion tract undigested adding bulk to you stool to promote regularity.
