Need an effective, low cost antiparasitic remedy? Or prefer natural remedies, if they really work? You want papaya seeds (Carica  papaya).

A placebo, controlled study in Nigeria1 found them to be as effective as pharmaceuticals without any serious side effects. The parasite clearance rates after a SINGLE dose of seeds was between 71 - 100%.

Intestinal parasites are more common then generally believed, even in developed countries. In addition to causing stomach symptoms and weight loss, they can affect an individual’s mental concentration and emotional state. They can also lead to malnutrition and all of its related complications. In some developing countries, parasitic infections can reach epidemic proportions. It is good to know that papaya seeds, which can be taken straight from the fruit, kill parasites, so even the poorest have access to an effective and generally well tolerated treatment!
