Live Superfoods Raw Wild-Harvested Green Papaya Powder, 12 oz

Papaya, when picked in a mature green state, contains papain and chymonpapain, two important enzymes that break down proteins and aid digestion. These enzymes dissipate as the fruit ripens, and they are not present in fully ripe papaya. Therefore, our papaya powder is made from fruits that are picked green, before they lose their enzymatic value.

Evidence suggests that raising one's digestive enzyme levels can strengthen the immune system. Papaya enzymes also have the ability to penetrate the tissues and help dissolve injured and hardened tissues, and thus may help alleviate hardening of the arteries. Papaya powder can be taken with meals to enhance the digestion, or between meals to maximize enzymatic action outside of the digestive system.

Papain acts to thoroughly digest protein, and frees amino acids for quick absorption. It works in acid, alkaline, or neutral environments, and is especially valuable for the aged or anyone who has weak digestion due to enzyme deficiencies. Papaya is the only known source of papain. The fruit also contains chymonpapain, an even stronger protein-digesting enzyme.

These enzymes dissipate as the fruit ripens, and they are not present in fully ripe papaya. Therefore, our papaya powder is made from fruits that are picked green, before they lose their enzymatic value.

Other phytonutrients in green papaya help create a healthier intestinal tract by restoring proper intestinal flora. Carpaine, an alkaloid found in green papaya, reportedly has antibacterial properties that neutralize many types of harmful bacteria and parasites. The enzymes in papaya can also enhance carbohydrate and fat digestion.

Green papaya powder is also an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, C, and E, B factors, potassium, and magnesium.

Papaya powder can be taken with meals to enhance the digestion, or between meals to maximize enzymatic action outside of the digestive system.

Our green papaya powder is drum-dried at low temperatures (below 110 degrees) and contains no additives or carriers.

12 oz resealable package.
