Is this really natural?
Yes, we now sell all natural papaya, with no added sugar and no
sulphur dioxide or other preservatives. This delicious treat
reminds us of extra sticky and chewy fruit roll-ups from our youth.
Natural dried papaya is a lot tougher to chew than the sweetened
variety of papaya, but the taste is incredible and worth the
effort! Make sure you have good teeth though or be prepared to use
a knife to cut in order to truly enjoy this delicacy.
Health Benefits of Natural Dried Papaya
Natural papaya is a good source of dietary fiber and enzymes that
support a healthy digestive system. As an alkaline fruit, papaya is
helpful in soothing an upset stomach. It’s also chock-full of beta
carotene which the body uses to make vitamin A. This nutrient aids
in the maintenance of healthy skin and mucous membranes, while also
lending a helping hand to eye health. Vitamin A supports good
vision and reduces the risk of eye infections. Natural papaya is
also packed with antioxidants, which are the protective compounds
that neutralize harmful free radicals to prevent damage to healthy
cells in your body. This delicious tropical treat can really boost
your nutrition levels!
Dried papaya is a tropical fruit with a unique and exotic sweet
taste. It is naturally rich in dietary fiber, antioxidants, and
beta-carotene. These dried papaya spears are a great way to satisfy
a sweet craving, while providing the body with an energizing source
of nutrients. Some say dried papaya can act like an aphrodisiac.
You'll never know until you try it!
Health Benefits of Dried Papaya
There are a lot of antioxidants in dried papaya. Also, scientists
have found that papayas contain more beta-carotene than carrots,
and more vitamin C than kiwi fruit. Papaya also are abundant in
bioflavonoids. Substantial minerals found in papaya include
potassium, magnesium, and calcium.
Papaya is useful in aiding digestion because the enzymes of the
fruit help to digest proteins, fats, and starches. The fiber of the
fruit is helpful in streamlining the digestive tract. Dried papaya
is a very alkaline fruit, and this is one reason that it is often
useful in soothing an upset stomach. So, if you know somebody
suffering from the effects of cooked food, or feeling off center
after consuming sugar or meat, advise them to eat a papaya. Dried
papaya is especially effective in ridding the digestive tract of
constipation. But, be warned, if you eat a lot of dried papaya at
one time, do not travel too far from the bathroom because dried
papaya can really clean you out. :-)
Moreover, the papaya helps to nourish our endocrine system, as
Norman Walker wrote at length in his book on juicing. Dried papaya
helps the body to produce more arginine. This is an essential amino
acid that activates human growth hormones (HGH). These hormones are
important for cell rejuvenation and for rebuilding the cells in the
liver, muscles, and bones. Also, the skin benefits from arginine.
This is because the effects of it help to regenerate skin cells.
