Papaya juice can prevents intestinal infection by parasite

Papaya prevents intestinal infection by parasite. The tropical fruit Carica papaya and its seeds have proven antihelminthic and anti-amoebic activities. Carica papaya, a fruit plant also called papaya, papaw, pawpaw, mamao, or tree melon, is found in virtually every tropical and subtropical country.

The milky juice of the unripe fruit is said to possess powerful anthelmintic properties especially against roundworms and also ringworm. Papaya contains proven antihelminthic chemical agents such as benzyl isothiocyanate and papain and has other antiparasitic properties. In folk medicine, C. papaya seeds have been used to treat helminthiasis.

Gastrointestinal (GI) nematode (soil-transmitted helminth) infections are amongst the most prevalent worldwide, although this is largely acknowledged only by those working in this field. It is estimated that there are 3.5 billion cases worldwide, of which 450 million are individuals who are seriously ill as a result, the majority of who are children, and of which 44 million are pregnant women infected with hookworms.
