All fruits are important and serve different purposes. Most of them are more accessible than the other and in turn, are more medicinal than each other. The truth is we really don’t know how powerful and effective these fruits can go in keeping our system healthy. The efficiency of natural things can never be overemphasized.
Well here are 7 healthy fruits you should be eating;
Grapefruit is one of the healthiest citrus fruits. Besides being a good source of vitamins and minerals, it is known for its ability to aid weight loss and reduce insulin resistance.
Avocado is different from most other fruits. Most fruits are high in carbs, while avocado is low in carbs and comprised mainly of healthy fats. The majority of the fat in avocado is oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat linked to reduced inflammation and better heart health.
Can be delicious sometimes or maybe not.
Apples are among the most popular fruits, and also happen to be incredibly nutritious. They contain a high amount of fiber, vitamin C, potassium, and vitamin K. They also provide some B vitamins.
Studies suggest that the antioxidants in apples can promote heart health and reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and cancer. An apple a day may in fact keep your cardiologist away. Evidence has shown that frequent apple consumption may reduce total cholesterol, which can help reduce your risk of heart disease.
You already knew that oranges came packed with vitamin C, but get this; We already know Oranges to be very useful in easing up the bowel for an easier metabolism process which helps free up defecation.
Here in Nigeria, it is almost a non-seasonal fruit so it’s easily accessible anytime and anywhere.
If you’re looking for a tropical fruit packed with excellent health benefits, look no further than the pineapple, rich in vitamin C and manganese. Pineapple, however, is so important for health because of an enzyme called bromelain, which you can only get by eating this tasty fruit.
Bromelain helps you absorb antibiotics, stops diarrhea, and may even fight diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, according to a study by Biotechnology Research International.
Not only is it delicious, but it also helps you stay hydrated, as it’s 92 percent water. Watermelon boasts numerous other health benefits, including lowering blood pressure and helping with muscle soreness. It contains a wide variety of nutrients, including vitamin C, potassium, copper, vitamin A, and vitamin B5.
Watermelon’s most ignored property is the high level of citrulline which you can find in the white part of the watermelon ring. People tend to only consume the red juicy part with little or no knowledge of how important and beneficial that white ring is. I’ll suggest you wash your watermelon thoroughly so you can consume all parts including the back freely.
I’ve struggled not to add strawberry to this list considering that it’s hardly accessible in Western Africa, Nigeria precisely but nonetheless the health benefits are too magnanimous not to mention. So there you go, strawberry is 7th on the list of the healthiest fruits you should be eating.
Strawberries are highly nutritious. Their vitamin C, manganese, folate, and potassium contents are where they really shine. Compared to other fruits, strawberries have a relatively low glycemic index. Eating them shouldn’t cause a big blood sugar spike.
Similar to other berries, strawberries have a high antioxidant capacity, which may reduce your risk of chronic disease. Animal and test-tube studies have found that strawberries may also help prevent cancer and tumor formation.
