Studies have shown that bananas can improve insulin sensitivity and may improve kidney health.

A single cup contains 200% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin A, 135% of the recommended vitamin C, and 685% of the recommended vitamin K, among many others. Kale also provides very high levels of the powerful anitoxidants quercetin and kaempferol, known to lower blood pressure and reduce inflammation.
Papaya – Papaya is an extremely healthy tropical fruit that is packed with antioxidants. It contains a unique enzyme called papain that has the ability to break down tough protein chains. Papaya can help resolve constipation, relieve IBS symptoms, and has been shown to significantly reduce inflammation.

It is loaded with important vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A producing carotenoids, vitamin C, vitamin K1, calcium, folic acid, and iron.
