Papaya Figths Back Pain

Wow! I honestly have learned this information from my friend. She posted it on her wall on Facebook. I was surprised because I always have back-pain and I didn’t know that papaya can help to fight back pain. So, I thought of sharing this here on my blog.

Papaya contains an enzyme, papain, that is so potent at fighting pain that doctor’s have even isolated it to use in injections for those suffering from back pain. Today, this enzyme is one of the most popular supplements being sold over-the-counter to address back and body pain due to over-exertion. And yet, when we take the supplement versus eating the papaya ( I cup of organic papaya), we miss out on the helpful pain-fighting antioxidants found in the orange flesh of the papaya. Add papaya to your next shopping list, incorporate into salads or smoothies, or even make it into a salsa to enjoy food-based pain relief.
