Pawpaw is a type of tropical, fruit bearing tree native to Mexico and northern regions of South America. Today, papaya is one of the most widely cultivated crops in the world. Its fruit, seeds, and leaves are frequently utilized in a variety of culinary and folk medicine practices. It contains unique plant compounds that have demonstrated broad pharmacological potential in test tube and animal studies. Although human research is lacking, many papaya leaf preparations, such as teas, extracts, tablets, and juices, are often used to treat illnesses and promote health in numerous ways.
Here are the 3 great ways to improve hair growth
1. It may have anticancer properties; Papaya leaf has been used in traditional medicine practices to prevent and treat certain types of cancer, but modern research is still lacking. It has demonstrated a powerful ability to inhibit the growth of prostate and breast cancer cells in test tube studies, but neither animal nor human experiments have replicated these results. Although consuming papaya leaves and other antioxidant rich foods may play a role in cancer prevention, they have not been proven to have any curative abilities.
2. It may support hair growth; Topical applications of papaya leaf masks and juices are often used to improve hair growth and scalp health, but evidence to support its efficacy for these purposes is extremely limited. Some research suggests that high levels of oxidative stress in the body may contribute to hair loss. Eating antioxidant rich foods may help alleviate oxidative stress and subsequently improve hair growth. Papaya leaf contains several compounds with antioxidant properties, such as flavonoids and vitamin E. Proponents of using papaya leaf to improve hair growth often cite its rich supply of antioxidants. However, there’s no significant evidence that the topical application of papaya leaves can benefit the hair growth process. Certain types of dandruff are caused by an overgrowth of a fungus called Malassezia, which can impede hair growth. Papaya leaf has demonstrated antifungal properties in test tube studies, so it’s often thought to support hair and scalp health by inhibiting the growth of dandruff causing fungus. However, papaya leaf has not been specifically tested against Malassezia, so there’s no guarantee it’ll have beneficial effects.
3. It may promote balanced blood suga; It's often used in Mexican folk medicine as a natural therapy for treating diabetes and improving blood sugar lowering. Studies in mice with diabetes have found papaya leaf extract to have potent antioxidant and blood sugar lowering effects. This is attributed to papaya leaf’s ability to protect insulin producing cells in the pancreas from damage and premature death. Still, no scientific evidence indicates that the same or similar effects may occur in humans.
