Three Super Powers of Fruits
We are in the tropics and there is always a variety of fruits available in either season.
This is perfect because we’re going to talk about the benefits of fruits. You’re going to want to have a blender or a juicer when we are finished.
Fruits are an excellent source of vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals. And, daily intake helps reduce the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, and some cancers.
We will highlight three incredible super powers of fruits:
A diet of fruit is a great means of detoxifying the system, getting rid of impurities in the blood. Grapefruit mixed with celery, parsley, and aloe vera works detoxifying wonders.
It goes without saying that fruits are an excellent source of energy. A diet rich in fruits provides the body with natural sugars. And, this is preferable to foods with filled artificial sweeteners and high fructose corn syrup. As a beverage, juiced apples are a great picker-upper. Add a little wheat germ for an extra boost.
Digestive Regulation Power
Fruits, most of them, are natural laxatives and are great at regulating bowel activity. While prunes are the most common fruits used for excretion, a combination of apples, celery, and cucumber also help. A juice made of pineapple, mango and plums are also good for the digestive system.
We have all heard the adage: “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” We don’t know who said it but we agree. A diet rich in fruits will stave off numerous health problems as it boosts your immune system.
Do remember nothing beats eating raw, fresh fruits. We’ve equipped you with a few fun alternatives. Go get your juicer or blender and enjoy.
