Papaya - The Fruit of Angels: A highly delicious and popular tropical fruit, papaya leaves, fruit, and seeds include a variety of nutrients for the body. Papaya leaf extract, Papaya leaf teas and Papaya seed powder aids digestion, supports your immune system, boosts healthy blood platelet function and supports youthful skin.

What Makes Papaya So Powerful? Papaya is the only natural source of the protein digesting enzymes Papain & Chymopapain. It also contains the enzyme fibrin, a rarity in the plant world. Fibrin is an insoluble protein that traps red blood cells and platelets that aid blood clotting.

Why We Are Unique? We are 100% women-owned - We give 10% of profits to educate girls in Africa - We support our organic farmers and their communities - We care deeply about our environment.

What are the edible parts of the papaya?

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

First let me tell you that mostly 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 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!

Hi Vera! Great question!

The leaves of your papaya plant can be used for a variety of benefits – papaya leaves contain super enzymes papain and chymopapain, which help digest proteins, wheat, fat and carbohydrates, and speed up metabolism. The leaves also offer many health benefits for the digestive system, immune system and blood platelet support, and include vitamins A, C, and E.

So, find a way to use those leaves in a healthy way! You could put them in smoothies, or put them in a salad, or grind them up and put in a dressing. The leaves are also a great natural meat tenderizer, so if you’re planning on doing a 4th of July BBQ this year, use those leaves on the meat to help tenderize it!

Hope that helps!

I planted the seeds from a papaya in a flower pot and they are putting out sprouts. They are plentiful, like every seed is.sprouting. Do you have any suggestions as what i can use these tender leaves for. I live in the USA and there is no way I can transplant these precious little pick-a-boos.
