Swish Your Papaya!
Okay what does this mean? It means "chew" your papaya leaf tea, extract or juice.
Your saliva and the enzymes in your saliva is activated by chewing but when you take in liquid foods you don't really chew. You can use your mouth by "swishing" the papaya leaf tea, extract or juice in your mind to activate the same saliva glands.
When you swish your papaya you will be able to absorb more nutrients, digest it more easily and get a stronger dose of the properties in what you drink.
You should do this with all teas, smoothies, juices, liquid extracts and broths. So next time you partake the papaya, swish your papaya!
