‘Green Papaya Goodness’
Papaya is one of the most overlooked fruits but it’s such a powerhouse of health benefits. It’s not only a great antioxidant and enzymatic fruit but may help with inflammation, muscle relaxation and pain, cancer prevention, enhances fat loss, shortens labor, and prevents blood clots. It is also high in vitamin C and A, folate, manganese, fiber, potassium, and copper. The combination of the fibre, water, and natural occurring digestive enzymes in papaya make it one of my top fruits for promoting optimal and healthy digestion.
