Papaya is a lovely fruit that’s loved by young and old alike. The best part is that it is not too expensive and it commonly available everywhere.

This delicious fruit is also very beneficial for your health. It contains a digestive enzyme called papain, which helps to relieve constipation.

The fruit’s high water and fibre content also help by adding bulk to the faeces and enabling it to pass the digestive tract faster.

The greener the papaya, the higher the papain content in it, so go for partially ripe papayas if you want to relieve constipation.

Although the whole fruit is best, you can also enjoy it as papaya juice, provided you make it in a juicer and do not strain it. You need to have at least 1 – 1 1/2 cups of juice or more to get relief from constipation.
