Liver Rescue Papaya Smoothie

Written by Kajsa IngelssonJune 2, 2021

Papaya is one of my favourite fruits. I just love the flavour and the cooling effect it has on my body. It is also a very healthy fruit, containing more than 150% of your daily recommended dose of vitamin C and a high dose of vitamin A and B9. Its a fruit that’s has both strong anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer benefits.

It also aids in digestion and its enzymes are popular in various digestive enzyme supplements.

When you include the seeds in the smoothie, you are getting even more benefits from this amazing fruit. They are an excellent anti bacterial and parasite remedy due to the carbine found in the seeds, plus it is said that they help to regenerate the liver on a cellular level.

Try to make sure that you pick your own papaya or buy it organic, since there is a lot of GMO papaya (especially from Hawaii) out there. Here’s a link on everything you need to know on GMOS in case you don’t know what I’m talking about. #knowledgeispower

Be aware though, the seeds are spicy, so this smoothie will be a tangy pick me up!
