Papaya. Five things you should know:

Feb 25, 2024 | Nutrition

  1. Excellent in combating cellulite. 🍑
    It contains the enzyme papain, which strengthens connective tissue, and due to its high potassium content, it regulates the water and acid-base balance, serving as another aid against cellulite.
  2. Useful for our eyes and skin. 👀🥭
    It contains high levels of vitamin A, which is rarely found in fruits. It helps in fat loss by reducing the stability of adipocytes, thus preventing fat storage. Just 100 grams of the fruit contain about 80 milligrams of vitamin C, covering more than two-thirds of the average daily requirement. So, eat papaya for better immune function.
  3. It is particularly digestible because it contains less acid, and for those who are bothered by some fruits in their meal because they have a sensitive stomach, try papaya. Also, papain helps in protein digestion and facilitates digestion. 🍽️
  4. Avoid combining it with dairy products like yogurt because it causes bitterness. 🚫🧀
  5. They grow easily in our country’s climate. I have planted a small tree in my garden, and in two years, it has become huge with many fruits. 🌱
