The 100 Year Lifestyle is so pleased to have named StriveLife Superfoods as the first 100 Year Lifestyle Approved Essential product. This product and the people behind it bring together a wide spectrum of high quality, high nutritional ingredients to support us all in living 100:100, at 100% for 100 years or more. To better understand the complexity and uniqueness of this superfood formulation, in this article we’re going to take a close-up look at just one ingredient you have probably heard of and might even love – papaya juice.
Many of us have enjoyed papaya fruit both raw and ripened. We’ve enjoyed it in Indian, Mexican, and other Central American cuisine. Whether we had it in curries, salads, or smoothies, it’s always a treat.
Some of us might even have sipped papaya juice at a fancy brunch. While most people who come into contact with papaya love its unique taste and sweetness, few of us realize that it is a nutritional powerhouse as well.
Long List of Benefits
StriveLife’s Buck Naked Greens utilizes papaya juice for its cardiovascular benefits. These benefits and others are confirmed by Medical News Today. “The possible health benefits of consuming papaya include a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, aiding in digestion, improving blood glucose control in people with diabetes, lowering blood pressure, and improving wound healing.”
Other benefits include:
Immunity boost (200% of daily vitamin C requirement)
Weight loss and easing of bowel movements (high fiber)
Improves vision and slows the progression age-related macular degeneration (vitamin A)
Eases menstrual cramps (the enzyme Papain regulates menstrual flow and provides instant relief from pain)
Prevents stress and restores hormonal balance (vitamin C)
Fights cancer (rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, and phytonutrients)
Papaya is also used in beauty products such as hair and skin moisturizers and cleansers.
In addition to the nutritional value listed above, papaya is also a good source of folate, magnesium, copper, and vitamin B5.
While papaya is a readily available fruit these days, for most of us it just isn’t possible to consume it on a daily or even regular basis to take advantage of these benefits. Until now.
Papaya juice should be a part of everyone’s 100 Year Lifestyle nutritional support. And now it can be, thanks to StriveLife Superfoods.
