Benefits of Paw Paw




Apart from the excellent taste and the digestive enzymes, the benefits of pawpaw fruit are many.

Pawpaw’s are bright yellow or orange in colour and therefore are rich sources of beta carotene which assists in maintenance of a healthy immune system.

They are also rich in vitamin C, folates, vitamin B, minerals and flavanoids.

In addition to soluble fibre, pawpaw also contains potassium, magnesium, and pantothenic acid. This amalgamation of nutrients helps in improving cardiovascular health and can also help prevent cancers.

The enzyme papain could be used to treat sports injuries and is also beneficial in case of trauma and allergies.

Pawpaw fruit benefits come from all the various nutrients that the fruit contains.

The fruit is low in sugar and therefore is excellent for diabetics as well. Regular consumption of pawpaw can help in the prevention of diabetes and atherosclerosis (plaque buildup in arteries). 

So serve up a slice of this miracle fruit and feel the health benefits!
