Mmmm Papaya the super fruit for breakfast!

Papaya is what's for breakfast! 

They're not only beautifully vibrant and taste like the luscious tropics but they are a rich source of antioxidant nutrients such as carotenes, vitamin C and flavonoids; the B vitamins, folate and pantothenic acid; and the minerals, potassium, copper, and magnesium; and fiber.

Papaya is a natural remedy for many ailments, including atherosclerosis, heart disease, and rheumatoid arthritis, and they help keep your digestive and immune systems healthy. The flavonoid beta carotene in papaya has been proven in multiple studies to help protect against lung and mouth cancers. Other flavonoids in Papaya have potent antioxidant properties against free radicals and degenerative diseases. 

Papayas contain 212 amino acids and several enzymes, including papain, a proteolytic enzyme that has an anti-inflammatory effect on the stomach, including  swelling and fever that can develop post-surgery. Papain helps proteins digest faster, which discourages acid reflux, and has proven it's effectiveness in treating ulcers and even relieving irritable bowel syndrome. Papaya seeds have been used in holistic medicine for decades to treat parasite and ringworm infections. 

Papaya is really a super fruit and your body will thank you for eating it, with good health!
