Healthy Fruits

Below are the top fruits known to possess an abundance of phytonutrients and antioxidants which you should include in your regular diet.

•    Bananas:  Bananas are known for their high doses of potassium and low sodium content. Not only are they valuable in lowering risks associated with high blood pressure, bananas are also helpful in stomach ulcer prevention. They are also a resistant starch which means they actually help curb appetite as well as aid in weight loss.

•    Oranges:  Oranges are an excellent source of dietary fiber, and with its amazing load of Vitamin C, it is known to fight cancer and other diseases of the immune system.

•    Blueberries:  Blueberries are among the healthiest fruits due to their antioxidant content. They are also a superb source of Vitamin C and manganese. At just 80 calories per cup, there is every reason for you to snack or munch on blueberries anytime.

•    Apples:  Apples are among the healthy fruits which are easy to find anywhere. This fruit is rich both in soluble and insoluble fiber and is also a great source of antioxidants.

•    Kiwis:  If there is any fruit higher in Vitamin C content than oranges, it’s the kiwi. Kiwis are also known to help in DNA protection and cataract prevention.

•    Grapes:  Red wine is an excellent source of antioxidants; but if you don’t drink alcohol, a cup of grapes, especially the dark colored variety, can give you the same level of resveratrol for heart disease prevention. White grape juice is also easy on a toddler’s stomach if they seem to be easily upset by apple or orange juice.

•    Strawberries:  Antioxidant rich, particularly in Vitamin C, strawberries are excellent when added to your breakfast cereal or consumed on its own. A daily dose of strawberries is known to prevent heart disease and diabetes and is also beneficial in treating inflammation.

•    Grapefruit:  Something that should be added to this list is the grapefruit, which is also high in vitamin C, but also helps regulate your blood sugar. I have written about this in a different post, but if you eat a half of grapefruit 3 times/day with your main meals, you should drop 5 pounds within a month with no other changes. It is that powerful!
