Benefits of Papayas
Treats Gastric Problems and Indigestion
The enzyme papain present in the papaya gives relief from gastric problems and indigestion. The compound carpain is also used in the diagnosis of many aliments. Papaya is a wholesome fruit, another of my favorite. It is a rich source of antioxidant nutrients such as betacarotene (which is what gives it the orange color; green papaya does not contain this carotene), vitamin A and C and flavonoids, B vitamins, folate and pantothenic acid.
