What are the edible parts of the papaya? | Herbal Goodness

Many people come to wonder what the health benefits of papaya are.

First, let me tell you that most everything on the papaya plant is EDIBLE. The fruit, leaves, flowers, stems, roots, and seeds.

The papaya tree is actually the largest herb in the world that we know of. The leaves have the enzyme papain as well as the other nutrients found in papaya. Papaya has been used for many generations for many reasons in many cultures. Papayas don't keep on your kitchen counter or fridge for too long and they come from far distances.

If you live in the United States, get papaya that is more shelf stable and bio-available. I.e. Our extracts are more potent than eating the leaves and our teas are so delicious.

The whole reason behind taking a supplement is to increase your health and well being. So here, at Herbal Papaya, we only use our own farms and USDA Organic, non-GMO, sustainable, and fresh papaya leaves, fruit, and seeds.

This is important as we know that GMO plants have not been tested long enough for us to really and truly know the outcome of these bio plants on our health. The studies that have come out are astonishing. So remember, when choosing papaya or papaya supplements to go with the best.

Freshness is also important as it will carry over to how your body can accept the wonderful nutrition. We only harvest in season and sometimes have to wait until the rain ends before we can harvest the fruit and leaves.

You can really see the difference in our products compared to others. The proof is in the GREENness!
