Papaya

Papaya Papaya contains several unique proteolytic or protein digesting enzymes including papain and chymopapain. These enzymes have proven to lessen inflammation by digesting inflammatory proteins. The antioxidant nutrients in papaya have also been shown to be helpful in the prevention of colon cancer. The fiber in papaya binds to cancer causing toxins in the colon and keeps them away from healthy cells. Also, the folate in papaya is needed for the conversion of homocysteine into neutral amino acid compounds protecting blood vessel walls. High homocysteine levels are considered to be a significant risk factor for heart disease or stroke. Papaya boasts high levels of vitamin C as well as beta carotene, B, D, E, K and the minerals calcium, iron, phosphorus and potassium. It is also rich in sodium and magnesium.
