Papaya - one of natures best wellness foods 🍑Here are 5 reasons to include in your food choices.
1️⃣The papaya is a tropical fruit high in vitamins C and A, along with fibre and healthy plant compounds. It also contains an enzyme called papain, used to tenderize meat.
2️⃣Papaya has powerful antioxidant effects. This may reduce oxidative stress and lower the risk of several diseases.
3️⃣Early research suggests that the antioxidants in papaya may reduce cancer risk and perhaps even slow the progression of cancer.
4️⃣Papaya’s high vitamin C and lycopene content can improve heart health and may reduce the risk of heart disease.
5️⃣ Chronic inflammation is at the root of many diseases. Papayas are very high in carotenoids that can reduce inflammation.
