Lab Shows Anti-Pancreatic Cancer Effect of Papaya Leaf Tea

Focused on the Phytochemical saponin in the Carica Papaya Leaf, researchers tested the effect of papaya leaf tea as a 20:1 ratio of leaf to water brewed 25 minutes at 85 degrees C (185 F). The tea showed effect against cell lines with pancreatic cancer.
