Smoothies are a great way to get the daily recommended value of fruits and veggies. If you have a tough time getting these into your diet this is the way to go.

Papayas are high in vitamin C and are a good source of folate, potassium, fiber and vitamins A, E and K. Papayas are rich in antioxidants and the enzyme papain, which helps promote digestive health. Lycopene content of papayas may help protect against prostate cancer.

Studies suggest that eating papayas may help protect against heart disease, heart attacks and stroke. Diets rich in fruits like papaya may also reduce the risk of colon cancer. Their anti-inflammatory properties may help with diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.
