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.

“Hey Guys!

In your message to me you asked what I was waiting for and that I should tell you what I thought.

Well...

What I was waiting for was to get my hands out of the bags of goodies I just received!

The prunes are delightful; the dried Papaya is delectable; the almonds are out-of-this-world delicious; the cashews make my palate palpitate, my tongue tingle and my lips tremble.

So...

What am I doing? Sitting here gabbing away with you guys? Sorry, boys, but you will have to excuse me--I have some serious munching and lip-smacking to do.

Later...

Oh, by the way, this email message comes to you via the Nut Lovers' Paradise located somewhere in the hinterland.

Have a great 4th of July celebration!

Blessings and Peace,

Jim King”

“My favorite thing about your dried papaya is that you keep the sugar to a minimum. This is good for two reasons: (1) refined sugar is not good for my health (2) the lower amount of sugar lets the true flavor of the papaya come through. I didn't know how dried papaya should really taste until I tried some of yours. What a wonderful flavor that I've found nowhere else.”
