Pitaya, also known as Dragon Fruit, is a superfruit indigenous to Central and South America that is now grown all over the world.
WAIT! DRAGON FRUIT IS THE SAME?
Yes! Pitaya was first discovered in Central America, centuries ago, and has traveled to all corners of the globe. Early missionaries brought Pitaya to Asia where it has since been renamed and is more commonly known as, Dragon Fruit.
SHOULDN'T DRAGON FRUIT BE WHITE ON THE INSIDE?
Some species of Pitaya / Dragon Fruit have white flesh, or pulp, on the inside. At Pitaya Plus, we only harvest the red flesh Pitaya, which is richer in nutrients, flavor, and, of course, color.
WHAT DOES IT TASTE LIKE?
Pitaya, or Dragon Fruit, has a faint, sweet taste much like an earthy watermelon. All of its seeds give it the consistency of a kiwi.
RICH IN MAGNESIUM - Helps increase your energy. Important for regulating Sodium, Potassium, and Calcium Levels. Also helps relax muscles, nerves and anxiety; which all lead to better sleep and muscle recovery.
HIGH IN FIBER - Diets that are high in fiber can help reduce the risks of heart disease, control blood sugar levels, maintain bowel health and normalize bowel movements, lower cholesterol levels, and aid in achieving healthy weight.
GOOD SOURCE OF IRON - Carries oxygen to your entire body, which is vital for brain and muscle functionality.
RICH IN ANTIOXIDANTS - Antioxidants help protect your cells against the effects of free radicals that can cause heart disease, cancer, and other diseases.
ORGANIC - Organic food has been known to have higher antioxidant and nutrient levels than non-organic food. They are absorbed much more easily than their conventional counterparts. Organic Food is produced without pesticides or chemicals, which helps not only the environment, but also your body.
NON-GMO VERIFIED - GMOs (or “genetically modified organisms”) are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering. This relatively new science creates unstable genes that most developed nations consider to be unsafe and lacking in nutrition.
RICH IN VITAMIN B2 - Vitamin B2 is a water soluble vitamin. The human body needs a daily dosage of it since it cannot be stored in the body. It plays a major role in energy production and represents an essential nutrient in your diet.
POWERFUL VITAMIN C - Vitamin C benefits may include protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and even skin wrinkling.
1 INGREDIENT - Whole foods are rich in phytochemicals, which are powerful nutrients found in plant foods. Compared to processed foods, whole foods contain more vitamins and minerals, and more fiber and beneficial fats. The combinations of nutrients in whole plant foods act synergistically to protect us from disease.
