Hawaiian Papaya - 6" Pot
Hawaii papayas offer more than only a delicious tropical taste. They are rich sources of nutrients that together promote healthy living. Papayas are rich in enzymes that stimulate stomach secretions and aid digestion. They contain protein-digesting enzymes including papain and chymopapain. Papayas are low in fat and are a good source of fiber, which has been shown to lower high cholesterol levels. Papayas are an excellent source of Vitamins C and E and beta-carotene, three strong antioxidants. These nutrients help prevent the oxidation of cholesterol that may damage the blood vessel walls and eventually cause heart attack or stroke.
