BENEFITS OF EATING FRUITS

  • Blueberries are a powerhouse superfood containing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds that help to ward off major disease like Alzheimer’s, diabetes, heart disease, and some types of cancer.  The compounds in blueberries also help keep our memories sharp.  Blueberries are the ultimate memory food.
  • Pineapple is good for digestion, speeds up wound healing, and reduces inflammation, and it’s a natural blood thinner.  One cup of pineapple contains 100 percent of the Daily Value for manganese, which is an essential trace mineral necessary for healthy skin, bones and cartilage.
  • Mangoes are known as the “king of fruit”, and they contain a high percentage of water.  Mangoes are packed with potassium, vitamin A and beta-carotene.
  • Bananas offer a rich source of potassium and fiber (3 to 4 grams of fiber per banana).  Potassium is important for maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance and a regular heartbeat.   A decrease in potassium levels can make you weak and tired and is often connected to muscle cramps.
