Often we will eat our food without knowing what it's good for, or what the benefits of it are. Just by taking a short time to learn about all the benefits of what you are eating you can eat according to what you think your body needs at the time.
You are what you eat, and if you do not know what you are eating and the effects it may have on you, you are missing out! You could be eating something that is making your health worse, or even hindering your mental performance.
Natural foods have nutritional and often medicinal value. The trick is to know what they are. By knowing what helps with what, the next time you have a cold, you may reach for the cayenne pepper and cook yourself up something spicy instead of gorging on a bowl of vanilla ice cream (which would do you absolutely no good).
What are the benefits of papaya by the way? The papaya is very nutrient rich, and contains vitamins A, C, E, as well as potassium, folate, fiber, calcium, iron, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, lutein, lycopene, zeaxathin and digestive enzymes.
Aside from the generous nutritional value of the papaya, it also does wonders for digestion. It is great for improving digestive health and can help with indigestion, acid reflux, constipation, and gastrointestinal distress.
On top of getting your digestive system back on track it also helps flush out the lymph system, fight infections, and it's good for your heart.
Did I mention it is low in calories? So the next time you reach for that calorie packed candy bar, eat a papaya.
Papaya packs a high nutritional punch and is loaded with wonderful vitamins and nutrients. With all the benefits of papaya there are, your body will certainly thank you for eating one!
