Benefits of Papaya !!

Few people realize what a wholesome and nutritive fruit the papaya is. It has more carotene when compared to other fruits such as apples and guava, custard apple, plantains. The ripe papaya fruit contains large quantities of carotene. Papayas are high in ascorbic acid content (vitamin C) and the flesh is very high in vitamin A. There are also small amounts of calcium, iron, thiamine, riboflavin and niacin present in papaya. It is low in calories and sodium, and high in potassium. Papaya is a common man’s fruit which is reasonably priced and has a high nutritive value. This fruit is available throughout the year. Like the banana tree nearly every part of the papaya tree is said to be useful and of medicinal value.

Papaya aids in digestion
Papaya contains a protein digesting enzyme called ‘papain’ and hence one of the best foods for digestion. The juice of the unripe fruit is used in the preparation of various remedies for indigestion and in the manufacture of meat tenderizers.
Papaya in cosmetics

The skin of the papaya is a first class external treatment for skin wounds and surgical incisions and other places which do not heal quickly. The pulp from the juicer can be used for this and as a poultice.
Papaya as an antidote for hypertension
The liberal amount of potassium in it helps in checking blood pressure and improving mental alertness.
Papayas provide protection against heart disease
The nutrients in papaya help prevent the oxidation of cholesterol. Only when cholesterol
becomes oxidized is it able to stick to and build up in blood vessel walls, forming dangerous plaques that can eventually cause heart attacks or strokes.
Papaya boosts the immune system
The beta-carotene in papaya, is needed for the proper function of a healthy immune system. Papaya is therefore, a healthy fruit choice for preventing such illnesses as recurrent ear infections, colds and flu.
Papaya for better eyesight
Eating 3 or more servings of this fruit per day may lower your risk of age-related macular degeneration, the primary cause of vision loss in older adults.
Papaya is good for skin
Intake of papaya reduces the effects of stress and strain of modern life on skin. The enzyme papain acts as an exfoliative agent and removes dead cells and lifts away the dry skin. The antioxidants in papaya control premature ageing of the skin, thus imparting a youthful look.

Mayonnaise for Smooth, Soft Hair !


Do you have dry and damaged hair ? If yes, then you should definitely try this recipe 🙂 Mayo treatment can give you soft, shiny and strong hair.

Protein and moisture treatments for your hair can be expensive, but there is an easy and affordable homemade solution that you probably already have in the refrigerator. You can make a rich and nourishing protein treatment for your hair using eggs mayonnaise. Mayonnaise is made from eggs, oil and vinegar, all of which are recommended for use on hair. Eggs and oil fortify and moisturize dry hair, while vinegar is often used to give hair more body and bounce. If your hair is dull, lackluster and limp, try a homemade mayonnaise hair treatment. I do this once a week and it makes my hair looking shiny, soft and bouncy again.

  • Simply apply a liberal coating of mayonnaise throughout your hair.

  • A shower cap or plastic bag on your head will also help contain it.

  • Leave for an hour.

  • Wash using mild conditioner.

Ta-Da ! Your hair would be shinier, smoother and healthier.
