Papaya is a big staple in my family and our diets. It’s a fruit I introduced very early in when Olivier started eating solids and continues to be a staple for us. See the healing benefits below!

- Papaya is one of the most nutrient dense and healing fruits on the planet. It is extremely high in beta carotene, vitamins C & A, and minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, potassium, and iron. It is a phenomenal fruit for helping to heal any type of digestive disorder such as constipation, acid reflux, colitis, pancreatitis, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers, celiac’s disease, H.pylori, diverticulitis, indigestion, bloating, flatulence, and stomach upset.
Papaya has a soothing, cleansing effect on the digestive tract and gently removes toxic debris while decreasing swelling and inflammation. Its high nutrient value also provides the body with all the essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, protein, and essential fatty acids it needs to rebuild muscles, tissues, bones, and organs.
Papaya contains potent anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties and can provide significant relief for those suffering with joint pain, shingles, chicken pox, arthritis, colds, flu, and autoimmune disorders such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, lyme disease, lupus, and cardiovascular disease.
Papaya is also an excellent food for the convalescing and can help rebuild the body after a long illness or from being bedridden. If consumed regularly, papaya will greatly improve skin, hair, and nails and keep eye’s bright and clear. The black seeds inside the papaya are completely edible and can act as a digestive aid and contain more enzymes than a whole bottle of digestive enzyme capsules.
There are two major varieties of papayas on the market today: the big football-size Maradol papayas and the small hand-size solo or strawberry papayas. The large Maradol papaya variety contains the most nutrition and healing properties and are NOT GMO.
