Health Benefits

The basis of any good paya is its bone broth. When you eat paya, you want to drink up every drop because each one works to make you healthier. Bone broth is a good source of gelatin a substance that improves digestion and treats leaky gut. The gelatin patches up holes inside the stomach and digestive tract linings which can treat leaky gut or prevent you from developing it altogether. This patching process also fights chronic diarrhea and constipation.
