Papayas are a rich source of antioxidant nutrients such as Carotenes, Vitamin C, Flavonoids, B Vitamins, Folate, Pantothenic acid, and minerals, Potassium, Copper, and Magnesium. Papaya contains the digestive enzyme, Papain. Together, these nutrients promote healthy function of the cardiovascular system and help provide protection to the digestive system. Our product has shown to be helpful in promoting proper digestive function, reducing inflammation and improves healing from burns. This may explain why horses eat and digest better when papaya is added to their feed.
