Did you know...

Did you know Carica papaya extract can be used to heal dermal wounds, and that adding the chemical element Selenium can speed up the healing effects of the extract? Check out the article "Addition of Selenium to Carica papaya Linn Pulp Extract Enhances Dermal Wound Healing Activity" by Abdulrazaq et al. in vol.12 no.1 of the Tropical Journal of Pharmaceutical Research for details of this study.
Fun fact: This is the second time we are featuring an article on the Carica papaya species! The first time Carica papaya was mentioned on the blog was in a featured issue of Biokemistri.
