What is Chayote?

The Chayote plant contains nutrients that have anti-inflammatory properties that help with high-blood pressure, kidney stones, and indigestion. Chayote is high in fiber to balance blood sugar. Eat it raw, shred it in salads, add it to stir-fry or soups. You can even juice chayote which helps with liver health.

Did You Know?

Beets are very detoxifying for the liver? They also contain betaine, which studies have shown have significant anti-cancer properties and are effective in inhibiting the formation of cancer-causing cells in the body.
