Green papaya powder comes from mature un-ripened fruit of the plant Carica papaya, cultivated naturally without the use of pesticides or chemicals. The papaya is picked while it is still green to retain its natural enzymatic qualities as these decline in the ripening stages. Green Papaya powder contains essential vital nutrients (potassium and magnesium) and enzymes to promote digestive health and is a rich source of powerful vitamins, enzymes, and phytonutrients that assist the body in combating a variety of ailments.
The powerful enzymes (papain and chymopapain) in Papaya aid in breaking down fats, carbohydrates and proteins, which aid in healthy digestion. Papaya is also rich in beta-carotene (vitamin A) and flavonoids, as well as folate, potassium, iron, calcium, B vitamins, and the antioxidant vitamins C and E. It is also a good source of dietary fiber.
