    does anyone use papaya leaf extract for low platelets?

    Clint Holland

    I have been using it, I buy it as leaves and use it as a hot drink daily, tastes like tea – so that makes it a nice drink.

    Does it work? So far my platelets have settled and my Haematologist is fine to just let me carry on without medications. So I have no real evidence to support it’s use but I will continue to drink it daily.

    Thanks for your information


    I have been drinking organic papaya leaf tea each day for seven years. My platelets have increased slightly during that period. I cannot prove that the tea has had an impact, but my platelet count was heading downward prior to daily papaya tea intake. I will continue to have a cup per day. Good luck. FYI, I purchase bags of organic papaya leaf C/S in 1lb bags from Starwest Botanicals. There are other sources I’m guessing.
