The famous footballer Gianluigi Buffon once said that time is like a tyrant who doesn’t forgive anybody. He was so right! Time will never give us back the years that passed, and it doesn’t care one bit that we don’t like it. 

Aging is one of the most natural phenomenons in the world, and you may have already guessed by now that there’s no way of stopping it. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t slow down the process a bit by following some simple dietetic rules.

Eat papaya to look younger!

According to EatThis,NotThat!, Trista Best, MPH, RD, LD from Balance One Supplements, believes that consuming some papaya can grant a lot of help in slowing down the aging process. The scientist said, as quoted by the publication:

Papaya is a superfood that gets little attention for its ability to slow and reverse signs of aging, but the reversal happens both internally and externally at a cellular level.

It seems that papaya is rich in substances that can help the human body a lot, which is wonderful. Such news can only make us happy and willing to grab some papaya from the groceries store!

Trista Best explains more, as EatThis,NotThat! also quotes:

The vitamins and plant compounds contained within papaya make it an antioxidant-rich fruit. These antioxidants and vitamins work in the body to slow and reverse oxidative stress,

If this oxidative stress is allowed to occur and persist, it can damage cells. Once those cells replicate, their damage manifests itself in the form of wrinkles, loss of elasticity, and even chronic conditions exacerbated by inflammation.

Botanically speaking, the papaya is a berry. It’s also the fruit of an herb, which is a bit surprising for many as it may look as it grows from a tree.
