Sanjeev from Rampur U.P, India, was one of the first readers to suggest papaya leaf juice for dengue. “The tested medicine for dengue is papaya leaf juice, 2 teaspoons twice a day, with gloyey (ayurvedic medicine.)”

Ashok Somani from Bagalkot Karnatak, India, also suggests using papaya leaf to help dengue sufferers, and explains how to make it. Ashok writes: “When the dengue is serious and the blood platelet count is decreasing, take a leaf of a papaya tree and grind with water. Take this juice on an empty stomach.”

It’s interesting to note that papaya leaf juice seems to be a common natural help for dengue patients in at least several Eastern countries. Janaka from Sri Lanka also wrote mentioning papaya leaf juice for dengue. Here’s Janaka’s comment:

“Apart from many natural herbs which will increase one’s immunity, the juice of papaya leaves significantly increases the platelet levels, even with a few teaspoons. In my country it is standard medical practice even in hospitals, since they claim they have no treatment for this disease!”

With the number of dengue cases in the country increasing, the traditional belief of curing it by papaya’s leaf juice has spread and suddenly there is a demand for the papaya tree.

So is this simply folklore or does this juice really help? Anecdotal evidence suggests that the extract of raw papaya leaf helps to boost platelets, also known as thrombocytes, and relieves symptoms.

Dengue fever, caused by the dengue virus that is transmitted by mosquitoes, can be fatal. Symptoms include high fever with headache, severe muscle pain, joint pain and red rashes on the body including itching.

Till date, no medicine has been approved to treat the dengue virus.

Traditionally, the juice of papaya leaf has been found to be useful in the treatment of dengue fever. Few recent studies have shown the effect of papaya leaf juice in curing the dengue fever. A recent one, done on five dengue patients by Indian Institute of Forest Management in 2012, found interesting observations. Among the five patients, papaya leaf juice was found to be effective in curing dengue. The platelet count increased in all five patients within 24 hours of drinking the papaya leaf juice. All of them reported significant improvement in health.

A 2009 study, done on mice in Malaysia, reported significant improvement in thrombocyte count in the group which received papaya leaf formulations compared to the control group. It seems that this bitter green juice is promising without posing any serious ill-effects. As a result, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical companies began formulating papaya leaf extract preparations.

Interestingly, papaya leaf has also been found to possess powerful anti-malarial and anti-cancerous properties. In some parts of the world, papaya leaf extract is used as a prophylactic to prevent malaria in endemic regions.

According to published research in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology published in 2010, researchers from US and Japan discovered that enzymes found in papaya leaf have dramatic cancer fighting properties against a wide range of tumours including cervical cancer, breast cancer, liver cancer, lung cancer, and pancreatic cancer. According to the study, papaya leaves are not known to have toxic effects and their consumption goes without side effects. In fact, doctors are beginning to recommend papaya leaf tea as part of chemotherapy in some parts of the world.

These benefits may not be surprising as a study by Purdue University showed that papaya leaf consists over 50 active ingredients found to kill fungi, worms, parasites and bacteria. In addition, papaya leaves also contain important nutrients that support the immune system, including vitamins A, C, and E.
