Papaya & Banana Juice: An Ayurvedic Recipe for Digestive Aid and Energy Booster

A Digestive Duo

Papaya and banana are both gentle yet effective aids to digestion. Papaya’s enzymes, particularly papain, help break down proteins and complex carbohydrates, while banana fiber promotes regular bowel movements and maintains a healthy gut microbiome. Together, they form a powerful digestive duo, easing discomfort, bloating, and constipation.

Energy Booster and Immune Support

This Ayurvedic elixir is not only a digestive aid but also an energy booster and immune support system. Banana, rich in potassium, helps regulate blood pressure and muscle function, while papaya, with its high vitamin C content, strengthens the immune system and promotes collagen synthesis for healthy skin and connective tissues.
