How to Prepare Papaya Seeds for a Parasite Cleanse

Carica Papaya Seeds have recently been identified in a randomized controlled study to have a dramatic effect against human intestinal parasitosis. The study was published in The Journal of Medicinal Food in March, 2007. In the study, an elixir of sun dried Carica Papaya Seeds and honey was fed to 30 children that were identified as having intestinal parasites. After 7 days, 23 of the 30 were cleared of parasites. You can search for the study abstract at for further reading.

Be sure to always consult with your physician if you suspect you may have intestinal worms but in the meantime, a healthy snack of dried Papaya Seeds with some honey may help you resolve your problem. It’s a great snack if you’re on a raw food diet or on a colon cleanse and Papaya seeds have been used as a parasite cleanse for decades.  Papaya Seeds can be hard to find in health food stores or even online. Luckily, the fruit produces a lot of seeds that are easily cleaned and dried for your use.

Preparing the Seeds

The seeds are contained in little juice sacks. A simple way to extract the actual black seed is to roll the juice sacks between two sheets of paper towel to pop them and expel the seeds.

There is inconsistent information about the most effective method to prepare and eat Papaya seeds and also regarding what quantity and frequency of ingestion is most efficient in expelling the parasites. Information really varies on these subjects. Some recommend eating the seeds whole, while others say the best benefit is to grind them. There is also a question of how long to dry them as well. The best thing to do is educate yourself by visiting the links below, watching the videos and searching for your own related information. Please come back and post your comments below if you have some helpful information to add about this great natural parasite treatment!

Here’s how it looked when I harvested and prepared the seeds for the first time. Click any of these images for a larger view. I started with what I’m pretty sure was a Mexican Papaya that I bought at the local grocery store. I think it’s a Mexican “Red” Papaya but it could be a Mexican “Yellow” Papaya.

After I washed it thouroughly (See recommendations by the FDA on wafe handling\washing of fruit & vegetables) I halved it

Here are a cpuple of closer pics of the seeds that are encased in kind of a jelly like outer shell

I extracted the seeds with a spoon and tried my best to remove all the small pieces of fruit so that I had mainly just seeds remaining

I then placed them on a paper plate between pieces of paper towels and rolled and mashed them to pop the seeds to get the black kernels out

Here’s what the actual seeds look like once you pop them out of their shells

And of course a by product is – Fresh Papaya!

Cut Papaya Fruit

I didn’t dry out the seeds like some information that I found had indicated to do. I just put them in my cuisinart and chopped them all up and then sprinkled it on food – It’s basically like pepper. I did try some straight as an experiment and it was kind of hot but not that bad. It really is very similar to regular black pepper in my opinion.

    I agree, i am having papaya juice with the skin and the seedd, and the seeds are a little hot! this is the first itme i blend the fresh papaya with the skin and seeds and it tastes way different, but I do not mind the taste because I know the benefits are great for my body!!!!!!!!!!

  • harry yokie

    i will be happy if i will be given writtings on the use of papaya materials to drive worms in my system

  • I have been tested by doc. But then if you are given 1 pill, they don’t retest? Mostly because ins, pays 1 blood test a year! Next yr test-same damm thing, parasites. So we don’t even try. A lot of people 70 o/o have parasites! We are enemic, we bloat, we overeat looking for energy! Parasites eat our nutrietion, leaving us with fats , starch.

    Doctor’s here in the USA, have no idea on how to treat or even test for parasites. They refuse to open a book, on knowledgable third world professionals, on this bitter subject, for me. The CDC, is so far behind on parasitc infections, that don’t bother asking for help there.

    I am currently working on a book, “The perfect host”, and have included so many spiteful words from these “so called”
    parasitologist here in this backwards country. For instance

    Dr. Panosian, from UCLA, said to me, “I don’t treat mexicans, then she told me to lay on her exam table, pushed my stomach in, real hard, knowing I was in tremendous pain,
    then said. There! that’s so you feel you got your money worth. This is true. I’m dying from a hyper-infection, of stronyloides and arcarsis, and after 10 year’s, can you believe I’ve never been tested here in this country.
    The correct method is more complex, then a simple one-time micro-vial of some poop. It’s repeated and repeated,
    and done on alternating day’s. With a PURGE. They are so stupid, I pray we have a epidemic.

    To ‘did anyone confirm it worked’ – no, I didn’t use this method. I’m adding many things to rid myself of these intestinal critters…I want to tell what absolutely is working for me…I take my Super Cleanse pills at night and I drink my whey protein (I’m using MRM brand at the moment) and when I wake up, I expel some every day.

    I discovered this on my own and then researched whey to find out yes, this is what is happening – the little bastards lose their grip on me and I can excrete them.

    I’m doing a drink of whey early and late plus my cleansing pills. It’s easy and it works. I don’t know how long this will take but I absolutely affirm I see the evidence daily.

    To pio – you obviously need to see someone else. I’m here in LA and you clearly need a better MD, even though of course they don’t know anything regarding this, heavy metal poisoning or nutrition. For me, it’s all connected.

    Good luck everyone.

    Wow I hope it’s just women eating the seeds. Studies have shown that men that eat papaya seeds on a normal basis will go steril. And by steril I mean a sperm count of zero has been reported in most cases. Its not a permanent effect though, going without seeds for a month or so will bring your sperm count back up. I’m not saying they’re bad for you, just don’t recommend it if you’re trying to procreate.


    Love your pictures. On the papaya seeds themselves, everything I’ve read indicates they’re much more effective crushed up so I actually put them in the blender with some of the fresh fruit, pineapple, the seeds from pumpkins and shredded coconut. All these are also beneficial against worms as well.

  • Thanks a lot for your advice on papaya seeds.

    this is very true, when i get or trying to get the cold or flu ler
    the flu, Allergies, i eat 2 large papayas and the third day i am feeling definely much better.

  • Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog
    jump out. Please let me know where you got your design.
    Bless you

    I just ate a few papaya seeds as they came from the fruit. They did not have a “hot” taste to me, maybe because the seed sack calmed it. They don’t taste bad.

  • piezoe

    adults eat eat fifteen seeds, fresh or dried, twice a day ON an Empty Stomach! Chew the seeds well. For Giardiasis. Repeat for three days, after being symptom free. As affective as Flagyl with fewer side affects. Don’t overdo it. Papaya seeds are toxic and large doses can be hard on the gastrointestinal tract.

  • felita

    yes, the papaya works…wish I had the picture to prove the fact of the ugly parasite. But yes it works. You may not see or feel anything on the first day or even second day, but in time you well. Just continue to use. If You also combine papaya with coconut.fresh pineapple,pumpkin seeds, shreded coconut or coconut water. That is also a good combination.
