6 Reasons Papaya Is The Key To Staying Younger

There is more goodness in the humble papaya than we can think of. In fact it happens to top the list of most nutritious fruits. It is extremely rich in vitamins C & A, papaya also has folate, fiber, magnesium, potassium, copper and pantothenic acid. A bowl of papaya everyday takes care of your skin, hair, stomach, heart, blood, bones and other organs as well.

Here are top 6 reasons you must have a bowl of papaya every day.

1) Helps digestion - Papaya facilitates natural digestion and helps in preventing constipation. Also known to help in preventing colon cancer, folate, vitamin C, beta-carotene and vitamin E in the fruit help in binding cancer-causing toxins in the colon thus also assisting smooth digestion.

2) Protects the heart - An excellent source of vitamins C & A, papayas are also good source of fiber and help lower high cholesterol levels.

3) Supports the immune system - The vitamins C & A present in papaya help boost our immune system and also help in preventing colds & flu.

4) Has anti-inflammatory effects - Enzymes like papain and chymopapainpresent in papaya lower inflammation and help healing burns. Also present in the fruit are beta-carotene and vitamin A, which also assist in reducing inflammation.

5) Good for skin - Papaya is probably the best ingredient to make face packs. It helps in getting rid of acne and skin infections by opening clogged pores. The fermented flesh of this fruit, which is called thepapain, helps make the skin glow by dissolving the dead cells. Papaya alsohelps in controlling premature ageing.

6) Assists weight loss- Low in calories and high on nutritional content, papaya is a boon for weight loss.

A bowl of Papaya a day keeps all diseases at bay!

You need to plan your meals well. Eat smaller meals at frequent intervals. Reduce your meals but avoid long gaps between meals and/or heavy meals. Have an early dinner. Avoid outside, junk foods. Exercise whenever you get the opportunity or at least 3-4times a week. This will ensure at least initial weight loss. You have to eat right if you want to take medications. Without good diet even medications won' t cause miracles. Lastly. Be commited. There is no short cut.

Underweight is a term describing a person whose body weight is considered too low to be healthy. The definition usually refers to people with a body mass index (bmi) of under 18.5 a weight 15% to 20% below that normal for their age and height group. Low weight may be due to improper diet, reduced assimilation from intestine, illness, metabolism, genetics etc. Thus first we have to rule out any such condition, with this have a healthy diet with more proteins (legumes, eggs, fish, lean meat, vegetables and fruits, drink plenty of water and go for regular exercise. A homoeopathic constitutional treatment will definitely help you a lot.

Dear lybrate-user You are lucky that you look so young. Change the way you dress, tie your hair, wear on accessories to get a more mature look. Be careful of eye contact and what you say should always be mature topics. This way, people will give you better response than as a small girl. Enjoy it till it lasts regards.

Hye, Thanks for the query. Firstly understand that muscle gain is very dependent on genetics and metabolism along with your daily diet and exercise routine. It is important to know that just eating just two heavy meals a day will not help. Muscle gain is all about taking more nutrients than you use up. Eating the right foods at the right time is very important. There is no one food that helps muscle gain. Eat meals at frequent intervals. You need to eat at least 6 meals a day. Eat a protein rich mid meal between each main meal. Pre/ post workout meals need a certain amount of carbs and proteins depending on your exercise routine. Avoid junk, sugary, oily foods. Include dairy, eggs, nuts, fruits, dry fruits, vegetables, whole grain cereals, smoothies, masala milk, healthy oils in your diet. Restrict eating sugary, sweet foods. Try to have healthy deserts like kheer, chikki or lassi. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Exercise at least 6 days a week. It helps development of muscle mass and improves appetite.  Even if you were to take just medicines or supplements they will not work in isolation. You need to have a nutrient dense meal and good exercise routine, it's crucial.

Maca root of the black variety can help improve sperm production and motility. It is a popular fertility herb that helps balance the hormones. Take 1 to 3 teaspoons of maca root in 2 divided doses for a few months daily. You can add it to a glass of water, a healthy smoothie or protein shake, or just sprinkle it on cereal. As maca root is high in fiber, start by taking ½ teaspoon and gradually increase the dosage over a few weeks.

Mr. lybrate-user Narayan, Creatinine of 1.4 mg / dl, good enough. There is no need to worry about it. Only if it goes still higher then there may be a need to consider reduction. Creatinine can be reduced by reducing protein intake to less than 0.6 g/kg/d and avoiding strenuous activity. Diabetes itself affects kidney function over the years. So strict blood glucose control also has to be maintained. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, looking at your height and weight you have a bmi of 32.14 kg / m2, signifying grade 1 obesity. High levels of liver enzymes may be due to being obese. There is possibility of non alcoholic fatty liver. (provided you do not indulge in alcoholic drinks). As regards the blood glucose levels & hba1c% it is clear that you have t2 diabetes. Cirrhosis of liver is a disease that occurs very late in the course of liver conditions. Now the remedy is to reduce weight (ideal body weight = 67 kgs). That will help you control both the conditions fairly rapidly and quite well. You need to look at your diet and daily food intake, plus exercise at least 1 hour a day. Plus avoid smoking and alcohol completely. (if indulged). Do not panic at all. You can remain absolutely fit and healthy by taking few simple corrective steps as mentioned above. Thanks.
