Yo I am back with another “Health Benefit” post. This time it is none other than my favorite – Papaya. Why favorite ? You might ask ! First, its filling. Whenever I feel full and don’t have space in my tummy for dinner, I splurge on Papaya. Second, Papaya is available all the year round, no seasonal nakhras at all :P. Third, it is a negative calorie fruit. Read about Negative Calorie Foods here.

1. Its great for skin and hair. I love Biotique Papaya scrub. Lolz, this beauty infection I have got from Ana 😉

2. Low in calories (just 39 Kcalories/100 g) and contains no cholesterol.

3. Rich source of phyto-nutrients, minerals, and vitamins.

4. Papaya has essential B-complex vitamins – Vitamin B-6, Vitamin B-1 , Folic acid and riboflavin. These vitamins are much needed since they play a very important role in metabolism.

5. Potassium is another goodie in Papaya – 257 mg per 100 g. I won’t repeat how important is Potassium ! If you have not read, read it here in another post.

6. Rich in Vitamin A and C, hence prevents small diseases like cold n flu. Papaya might not taste citrus, but yes it does have lots of Vitamin C !

7. Boosts immunity

8. Its Fibre ! That’s why its filling.

9. Promotes digestion. If you have constipation, include 3-4 slices of papaya in your dinner and you will have normal bowel movements. No chi chi allowed on this point 😛

  1. Good Post Tarun. I like papaya too. But I have heard many times that eating papaya hampers our period( it causes heavy flow or something like that) as it is “heat” in nature. Is that true???

    • Arati,Papaya has heat, I agree. For normal periods, we need that much heat. It will cause not increase your flow but if its scanty, it will make it normal. Hope that helps 🙂
