Fruity Winters- Day 24

Fruits and vegetables in winters drops to a low 25-30 rupees kilo. Affordable isn’t it? Hog on a plateful each day! The one I like is Papaya, for two reasons. One, because of the enormous benefits it has and two because its a whole fruit which can be eaten in one go without mixing with other fruits. So you peel and chop a kilo (or half) and you get the required amount of nutrients! Watch out for the benefits-

-Rub the pulp on face or mash it to use in a face pack. It is an excellent moisturizer.

-Use papaya with milk on your skin. Helps lighten your skin complex and gives a fairer, fresh glow. Helps reduce dark spots on skin.

-For skin tightening, mix mashed papaya with honey and apply on face for 15-20 minutes.

-Is rich in dietary fiber that helps in boosting your digestion. Also cures constipation.

-The anti-inflammatory properties of papaya helps to reduce pain of arthritis, edema and osteoporosis.

-High in Vitamin A&C, it strengthens your immune system.

-Papaya peel helps in skin whitening. Rub it on your face. Use it as a treatment for cracked heels.

-Those suffering with hair fall should consume papaya regularly. Papaya not only prevents thinning of hair but also controls dandruff.

-Papaya provides protection against heart diseases. Being rich in nutrients, it helps in preventing the oxidation of cholesterol, which helps in preventing the cause of heart attacks or strokes.

-Papaya seeds kills intestinal worms and parasites

Be it the peel, seeds or the fruit, papaya is a magic wand for you! Go for it this winters!
