Papaya and Digestive Health


You know that bloated feeling we get when you overeat? Well, it would make sense to NOT do that, but sometimes, when inevitable (like during the holiday season) be sure to have Papaya at hand!

Papayas are a rich source of vitamin A and C. One half of a small papaya can provide 150% of the recommended dietary intake of Vitamin C. Seriously…. An amazing source of health, and as a bonus, it is incredibly low in calories (only about 120 calories in a medium papaya), fat free, cholesterol free, and a good source of potassium, folate, and fiber.

Among it’s many health benefits, papaya is rich in the enzyme papain, which is used to aid digestion and it is a potent medical plant that eases stomach troubles! There is your HolidayTip for today! Enjoy every bite this season and make good choices!
