    Papayas are a good source of fiber. Its fiber is able to keep cancer-causing toxins in the colon away from the healthy colon cells. Those who are experiencing constipation or at risk of colon cancer should consider taking more papaya.

    Papaya is a great natural exfoliant for the skin and very healthy for the body so eat half then make a mask with the rest. The enzymes in a papaya soften and heal by fighting free-radical damage while dissolving dead cells from the skins surface.Just mash, apply directly to skin and leave on for 15 minutes or so then rinse.

    Papaya is rich in an enzyme called papain (a protease which is useful in tenderizing meat) and other proteins. Its utility is in breaking down the tough meat fibers and it has been utilized for thousands of years in its native South America. It is included as a component in powdered meat tenderizers. Papaya enzyme is also marketed in tablet form to remedy digestive problems. Caution should be taken when harvesting, as papaya is known to release a latex fluid when not quite ripe, which can cause irritation and provoke allergic reaction in some people. The papaya fruit and leaves also contains carpaine, an anthelmintic alkaloid which could be dangerous in high doses.

  35. Breaking down dead skin cells is essential to skin whitening. As papaya helps to speed up the skin cell renewal process, it can help to lighten the complexion. However, papaya does not have any melanin inhibiting properties so will not cause drastic skin lightening. It is ideal for fading dark marks and skin brightening in general.

  36. Anonymous9:31 AM

    Papaya contains an enzyme called papaine which helps in skin exfoliation. It's the same papaine enzyme that is used as meat tenderizer. Technically, papaya extract cannot be considered as a skin whitener because it does not suppress melanin formation. As an exfoliant, papaine accelerates skin turnover so there is this apparent lightening effect with newer, creamier skin on the surface. This effect though is shortlived if sunblock and melanin suppresants are not applied with papaya extract
