Papayas, also known as pawpaws, were once considered a rare and exotic fruit, but are increasingly available in the US. Like many other fruits, papaya is chock-full of antioxidants; for example, the antioxidant zeaxanthin in papaya filters out harmful blue light rays and is thought to play a protective role in eye health. Papayas also contain choline, a versatile nutrient that aids our bodies in sleep, muscle movement, learning and memory. Choline also helps to maintain the structure of cellular membranes, aids in the transmission of nerve impulses, assists in the absorption of fat and reduces chronic inflammation. Papayas also contain proteolytic enzymes which aid in protein digestion.
