In Dengue and many other diseases the decrease number of platelets is chief concern.
Platelets below 50,000 (in some studies below 20,000) may result in severe bleeding problems which may ultimately lead to death.
It has been found in many studies that papaya increase the number of platelets in the blood.
Papaya botanically known as Carica papaya is a very common plant in Indian orchards.
“it can be concluded that the administration of papaya seeds powder dose rapidly increase platelets count and may play an important role in thrombocytopenia.”
