Papayas are native to Central America and northern parts of South America. They’ve been cultivated there centuries before Spanish and Portuguese explorers came to discover that part of the world. It was mostly due to them that the fruit was propagated to other regions with a tropical climate.
This fruit enjoys some popularity in the scientific community. It’s one of the first fruits whose genome was completely mapped out. Various parts of the plant, from seeds to leaves, have also been subject to various studies most of which investigate its potential benefits to human health. But even before all that, indigenous cultures had already been using papayas medicinally.
Once described by Christopher Columbus as “the fruit of angels”, the Superhuman Food Pyramid wholly recommends that you include papayas in your diet. Read on to discover how this fruit can help you Become Superhuman.
