Papaya is a soft, delicious tropical enjoyed by many Filipinos of all generations. Thanks to the advances in farming and agricultural technology today, this tasty fruit is available almost everywhere. Today, many people enjoy this fruit’s delightful taste without knowing that it has a ton of health benefits.
Green and unripe papaya can be used in Pinoy dishes like ‘tinolang manok’ or sauteed vegetables. Although it is tasty when eaten with rice, it is best consumed when it’s ripe. The skin is the main indicator of a ripe papaya. Ripe papayas have yellow skin and a sweet smell.
Aside from being delicious and cheap, papaya also has a lot of health benefits. Even reliable experts like Dr. Willie Ong and Dr. Liza Ramoso-Ong speak highly of this tropical fruit. In their informational Facebook post, our trusted “Doktor ng Bayan” claimed that this fruit can help your skin and digestion.
Like many orange-colored fruits, papayas are abundant in nutrients such as beta-carotene, Vitamin A, and Vitamin C. Adding an adequate amount of papaya in your diet can be beneficial for your skin and your immune system, thanks to these nutrients.
It also contains papain, which can aid in smooth digestion. According to Dr. Willie Ong, if you are suffering from constipation, eating papaya might help ease your situation. In addition to that, it can also help regulate your bowel movements.
