2. Lowers Your Blood Sugar
The term blood sugar refers to the levels of glucose in your blood – and the glucose is produced by everything that converts into sugar within your body, including some types of starches and carbohydrates as well as the more obvious sweets and sugars.
High blood sugar can often lead to complications like diabetes, and if you’re at risk of developing one of the most common types of diabetes or you have already been diagnosed with the condition, then it’s likely that your doctor will recommend you cut down on your sugar intake.
It’s common for people to still crave sugar even when they’re told to eliminate sugar because they’re at risk of heart attacks, cholesterol, weight gain or diabetes – and if this describes you, papaya can taste sweet and help to lower your blood sugar in general, helping to satisfy your craving without being a sugar overload or health risk.
