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

1. 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.

2. 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. :-)

3. 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.

“First of all, I couldn't believe how quickly my package was delivered. It felt like it was the next day, but maybe it was the day after. Regardless, it was astonishing.

So far, I've tried the blueberries and the papaya and both are sweet, tender and DELICIOUS! I couldn't be happier and I plan to order lots more from you in the very near future!”

This order couldn't be any fresher and tastier than if I was in the store with you. I liked the surprise sample of dried strawberries that you included and will probably be seduced into ordering it when I am finished with these treats. You guys are the yummiest!!!!!”

“I opened the package of dried papaya in front of my bird, and the slices were so long she was reaching through the cage trying to snatch it from my hand! :D She (nor I) had ever seen such long slices!

She absolutely loves it, as do I and my dog. It was here in only a couple of days, and it is very, very fresh. Thank you so much for an even easier and healthier way to feed my bird.”
