From anti-bloat to skin hydration and elasticity, papaya is loaded with inspired goodness. Here are four reasons to eat papaya this Spring.

Immune boosting: papaya naturally contains a unique bundle of antioxidants – vitamin C and carotenoids – that help bolster your body’s defences. Just one cup (diced) provides more than twice your recommended daily intake for vitamin C, and nearly a third of vitamin A. Papaya is also a source of fibre, which helps with digestive balance.

Pregnancy. For expecting mums, papaya is a smart choice: it contains folate, essential for normal cell division and growth in pregnancy.

Improve complexion. Papaya’s antioxidant bundle – vitamin C and carotenoids – can assist with skin elasticity, and form and repair skin cells. Bonus: papaya’s naturally high water content can help keep your skin feeling plump and hydrated.

Waist Friendly. Naturally low in energy (kJ) and fat, it’s the everyday fruit that helps you keep going on the outside – and glowing on the inside.
