The papaya is extremely high in carotenes, which are linked with cancer prevention and healthy lungs and eyes! The papaya flesh is also a great source of fiber which helps control blook sugar levels by slowing sugar absorption. In addition, it is one of the richest fruits in potassium and much higher in calcium than most other fruits.
