22 Nov Top Healthy Fruits
Fruits contain lots of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. We have selected some of the healthiest fruits for you!
You might know the expression, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Although research shows that eating more apples may not be associated with fewer visits to the doctor (“…but if the doctor looks cute, forget the fruit”). Apples are a nutritious fruit offering multiple health benefits. They are rich in fibre and antioxidants. A medium- sized apple contains 4.4 grams of fibre, 8.4 milligrams of vitamin C and other small amounts of vitamins and minerals.
Eating apples is linked to having a lower risk of various chronic condi- tions, including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and cancer.
The most well-known citrus fruits are lemons, limes, oranges, mandarins and grapefruits.
Citrus fruits are a great source of vita- min C, which strengthens your immune system and keeps your skin smooth and elastic. They are also rich in B vitamins, potassium, phosphorous, magnesium and copper and are low in calories. Citrus fruits may reduce your risk of kidney stones, help to protect against cancer, and boost your heart health.
But pay attention: Grapefruits can interact with certain medications.
Avocados provide a substantial amount of monounsaturated fatty acids and are rich in many vitamins and minerals, including vitamins C, E, K and B6, riboflavin, niacin, mag- nesium and many more. Avocados are great for your heart and vision and help prevent osteoporosis and cancer. They improve digestion and support a natural detoxification.
