The papaya, a previously exotic and rare fruit, is now available at most times of the year.

Here we will explore more on the health benefits, uses, how to incorporate more of them into your diet, and what nutritional value papayas have.

Free radicals and oxidative stress are closely related to different types of cancer.

Because papayas are rich in antioxidants, the fruit can help protect cells from damage and lower the risk of cancer.

These are some of the main antioxidants contained in Papaya fruit pulp.

One study compared the antioxidant properties of 17 tropical fruits and berries.

Papaya fruit contains prebiotic fiber that promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria in your gut — potentially improving metabolic health.

Although this fruit may improve certain features of metabolic syndrome a condition associated with type 2 diabetes not all effects may be favorable.

Lower cancer risk is also due to papaya’s lycopene, which has anti-cancer properties.

Lycopene is a carotenoid and natural pigment that gives some vegetables and fruits their color.

Papaya contains a chemical called papain.

Papain breaks down proteins, carbohydrates, and fats.

That’s why it works as a meat tenderizer. However; papain is changed by digestive juices; so there is some question about whether it could be effective as a medicine when taken by mouth.
