Chaya is considered a Sustainable Superfood. Ours is the non stinging, maple shaped leaf variety known as Chayamansa and it is only grown on our farm in sunny South Florida. We know for a fact that our special plants have never been sprayed with fertilizers, pesticides, or chemicals of any kind.
Chaya or tree spinach, is a large, fast-growing leafy perennial shrub that is believed to have originated in the Yucatán peninsula of Mexico. The plants were highly prized by ancient Mayan royalty. Historians have reported evidence of Chaya planted near Mayan pyramids and sacred grounds. (Hence the nickname, the mayan miracle plant).
It is your choice. If you want to grow your own Chaya garden, you can order our organic cuttings directly from us. Grow your own plants, harvest and eat the leaves. As of 2018, we have shipped our cuttings to almost every state in the country!
The decision to offer our rare Chayamansa greens in supplement form was the result of years of customer requests. You asked, we listened. Whether you choose to take the supplements or grow your own Chaya, you are getting the same high quality nutritional content from this amazing plant.
From the beginning, our goal was to spread information about the health benefits of Chaya and offer cuttings from our unique Pure Life Chaya plants all over the world. Our customers were quick to respond and share the good news which started a grass roots movement that grows stronger every day.
Chaya is a semi tropical plant and loves the sun. In the US, it thrives in areas such as Florida and parts of Texas and California. Many of our northern customers are maintaining their plants indoors year round in a pot in a sunny area or growing under grow lights with excellent results.
We are truly excited about sharing this Mayan Miracle with others that are interested in finding sustainable solutions for world hunger and holistic health and healing.
