Pawpaw seeds, also known as papaya seeds, are rich in several nutrients and have been associated with various health benefits.

One of the most significant health benefits of pawpaw seeds is their high content of antioxidants. Pawpaw seeds contain a compound called carpaine, which has been shown to have potent antioxidant properties. Antioxidants help protect the body from damage caused by free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can damage cells and contribute to aging and diseases.

Pawpaw seeds are also a good source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, vitamin A, potassium, and magnesium. These nutrients are important for maintaining good health, a strong immune system, and preventing diseases.

In addition, pawpaw seeds have been traditionally used in herbal medicine for their anti-inflammatory properties. The seeds contain a compound called papain, which has been shown to reduce inflammation and improve digestion.

Some studies have also suggested that pawpaw seeds may have anti-cancer properties. The seeds contain a compound called lycopene, which has been shown to have anti-proliferative effects on cancer cells.


Most people when eating papaya, throw away the seeds while not knowing how beneficial they are and that they can prevent and cure a plethora of ailments related to the liver, gut, worms and even diseases like Dengue.
