Papaya soup to boost milk supply
Many people have the misconception that eating papayas can help one enlarge breasts. From the perspective of Chinese Medicine, papaya can strengthen the spleen and stomach, aid digestion and clear the intestines, and clear summer-heat and quench one’s thirst.
Such misconception comes from the fact that papaya can actually boost milk production. Many breastfeeding moms eat papaya to increase their milk supply because papaya contains papain (papaya proteinase) that induces uterine contractions, expedite the recovery process, and at the same time promote lactation.
Compared to ripe papaya, green papaya contains more papain. Hence, using green papaya to make soup can boost milk production more effectively. Since papaya can also cause uterine constrictions, avoid consuming it during pregnancy.
Tips on ingredient:
Octopus is cold in nature, can strengthen the qi and nourish the blood. It is suitable for individuals with weak qi and blood as well as those who are malnourished.
Green papaya can aid digestion, whereas ripe papaya can enhance bowel movements.
