"Fruit of the Angels"
Papaya is deliciously sweet with musky undertones and a soft butter-like consistency. It was reputably known as the Fruit of the Angels by Christopher Columbus. Papaya is very low in calories and contains no cholesterol - while being rich in phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals. It contains good amounts of soluble dietary fiber which helps digestion and to in reducing constipation. In fact, papaya contains the digestive enzyme papain and has been credited with protecting against heart disease, promoting digestive health, being anti-inflammatory, providing immunity support, and protecting against macular degeneration and rheumatoid arthritis.
Payaya is high in Vitamin C, making it great at fighting disease and illness, oxidative stress, and inflammation. It's also high in Vitamin A (required for maintaining healthy skin and mucus membranes), flavonoids (which have great antioxidant properties), and many B-complex vitamins like folic acid, B-6, riboflavin, and thiamine - all essential (meaning the body cannot produce them itself and needs them from external sources) for a properly functioning metabolism.
