Hair

By using papayas on your scalp, you can moisturize it and rid it of dandruff flakes.  The enzymes present in papaya juice can also remove impurities from your scalp, promoting hair growth and making your hair healthier.  By mixing papaya with honey you can create a mask to treat your hair that will make your hair feel softer and appear shinier.  To learn more about papayas and how they benefit hair health, read these five blog entries.

Virility

There are a number of vitamins and minerals you consume when eating papayas that help the body. When men eat papaya they are also getting the added benefit of an enzyme called arginine, which helps increase blood flow to the penis.  Medications that treat erectile dysfunction use a higher level of the same enzyme.  Check out these five blog articles to discover more about this topic.

Heart Health

The antioxidants in papayas prevent cholesterol from sticking to the arteries. Plaque, which builds on the artery walls and causes heart attacks, comes from oxidized cholesterol. By eating papayas you can reduce the chances of heart disease and heart attacks. There are more benefits that you can learn about if you read these five blog posts.

Digestion

Both green and ripe papayas contain beneficial enzymes that aid in the digestion of proteins in the body. Eating green papaya gives you a higher concentration of papain, which is the enzyme that aids in digestion.  If you eat green papayas on an empty stomach, the papain will be less likely to be diluted with hydrochloric acid (stomach acid) and be able to do more in your body.  Take a look at these five blog entries to learn more about papayas and digestive health.
