What are the benefits of eating Papaya Fruits

Papaya fruits have amazing health benefits and I may not be able to mention most of them. Most importantly, they aid digestion because of their high fiber and water content which in turn helps prevent constipation. They are high in antioxidants which help reduce aging and help prevent cancer. Papaya fruits are high in vitamin K which helps promote bone health and ward off heart disease.

Can papaya make you sick

Papaya fruits can sometimes have a laxative effect when you eat a whole lot of it. This hardly happens unless you are able to eat a huge amount of papaya fruit, it is safe to eat papaya daily. Consuming a ton of papaya will make you use the bathroom more often than usual since it contains a digestive enzyme called papain.
