Payapa is a mildly sweet fruit with a soft orange center when ripened. Papayas are loaded with vitamin C and A, but one of their most interesting nutrients is the digestive enzyme papain.

Papain is known to reduce inflammation, swelling and pain. It’s also used to treat infections, stomach issues and allergies. It’s also being studied for it’s potential anti-cancer benefits.
