Why you should eat paw paw

Hello Family, Happy new Month!!!

Do you remember that song we use to sing in primary school:

“paw-paw is a kind of fruit,

paw is a kind of fruit

it’s sweet like sugar,

coloured like Fanta everybody likes paw paw……….

okay okay stop singing and lets come back to the lecture….

ahemm*clears throat, adjusts shirt and skirt, picks up a piece of chalk  and faces the board*…..

so class our topic today is “WHY YOU SHOULD EAT PAW-PAW”:

Paw paw is rich in enzymes called papain and chymopapain which help with digestion. Particularly, it breaks down the proteins from the food we eat into amino acids. Research shows that amino acids play an important role in our mental and physical health. As we age, we produce less digestive enzymes in our stomach and pancreas, leading to ineffective digestion of proteins.  There is a resultant excess amount of undigested protein, overgrowth of the bad bacteria in our gastrointestinal system and not enough of amino acids to perform all important chemical reactions. We can say that good quality protein is absolutely essential for our healthy being. This is where the papaya enzymes can be very beneficial.

Eating paw paw after a meal makes for better digestion, prevents bloating and chronic indigestion. This is for my sisters that desire a flat tummy……

In summary, paw paw:

  • Increases quality of proteins in whole organism.
  • Revitalizes the human body and maintain energy and vitality.
  • Encourages the renewal of muscle tissue.
  • Supports cardiovascular system.
  • Boosts up the immune system.
  • Helps with the digestive system, by breaking down the proteins and supporting production of digestive enzymes.
  • Papaya can be use also externally as a treatment for skin wounds that don’t heal quickly, for this you can use papaya peel or ointments made out of papaya.
  • Prevents cataract formation.
  • Due to high vitamin A, it can lower the risk of emphysema in smokers and passive smokers.
  • Alleviates inflammation.
  • Helps with nausea and constipation.

Instead of buying lightening soaps and creams, go for paw-paw: it has lightening properties when applied on the skin especially the unripe one.

Some people use this fruit to prepare a soup called “beneseed soup”…….it’s tasty.

You can also add it to your smoothie and drink up a glass of vitamins and minerals that will build your body leaving you fresh and glowing.

That is all for now till next time 🙂
