While mango is popularly known as the king of fruits, for health freaks, papaya takes the throne in their hearts, both as a fruit and a veggie. Reasons are plenty that you cannot deny. A storehouse of valuable proteolytic enzymes like papain, chymopapain, caricain and glycyl endopeptidase, papaya is one of the best digestion boosters. In fact, these protein digesting enzymes of papaya are more effective than enzyme pepsin that our pancreas produces for digesting rich protein that we consume.
Not just improving digestion, papaya is known for several other health benefits like curbing cholesterol, aiding in weight loss, enhancing body immunity, preventing and checking diabetes, improving eye health, safeguarding against arthritis, easing menstrual cramps, preventing cancer and ageing and lowering stress.
