Why is eating Fruits good for your health?
A healthy and balanced diet is always recommended – with plenty pesticide free fresh fruits and vegetables. So, why is eating fruits good for your health?
1. The sugar in fruit is better than added/ refined sugar
Fruit naturally contains a large amount of natural sugar – a combination of fructose and glucose. Added sugars also include this combination, but they have been stripped of their natural sources to form harmful free radicals. Most cardiovascular or diabetes are caused by these free radicals.
Fruits contain a great deal of water and fiber, so you need to chew to absorb them. The fructose in the fruit is thereby absorbed slowly through the liver. Sugar is absorbed in small amounts which is much better than when the body has to tolerate a large amount of sugar at one time.
Besides, the fructose in fruits are almost harmless, they are really only harmful when you eat too much, but almost no one can get large amounts of fructose through eating fruit every day.
2. Fruit helps to retain water
Most fruit is made up from water, every fruit contains different amounts of water, but on average, fruit contains 60% – 95% water. Although drinking clean water is best, eating fruit can also help maintain water in your body.
3. Eating lots of fruits may help you reduce bad cholesterol
Cholesterol is the substance that is produced by the liver, which is necessary to make vitamin D and some other hormones and create bile salts that help you digest fat. As you may know, our liver is capable of producing all the cholesterol we need, so cholesterol that we get from food every day is redundant.
Having too much cholesterol in the blood, also known as hypercholesterolemia, is a major risk factor for heart disease and can lead to a heart attack.
Most fruits contain very little fat and no cholesterol. The fiber in the fruit may help to reduce cholesterol in the blood.
4. Helping the body to increase the supplement of vitamins, fiber and minerals
We need a variety of vitamins and minerals to stay active.
In addition to water, natural sugar (fructose), fruit contains many other important nutrients such as vitamins, fiber, minerals and antioxidants.
The abundant vitamin and mineral content in fruit, especially vitamins A, B, C, potassium and folate, is very good for us. A potassium-rich diet also can help you maintain healthy blood pressure. The heart also needs potassium to maintain the function of pumping blood throughout the body. Vitamins are especially good for skin and hair.
Fiber, especially the prebiotics in fruit may help to lower cholesterol. It slows the absorption of carbohydrates and increases the feeling of fullnessl. In addition, the fiber in the fruit also supports the digestive system and intestinal tract.
Folate, also known as folic acid, helps in the formation of red blood cells for the body and is in particular important during pregnacy.
5. Fruit boosts your brain power?
Some studies have shown that eating fruits, especially berries, enhances memory, prevents age-related dementia or other external factors. Therefore, eating fruit is also an extremely simple solution to promote the best brain function, reduce anxiety and stress.
To maintain a healthy body, a balanced physique and prevent diseases, you should eat plenty of fruit in your daily diet. Fresh fruit is good, but all-natural fruit is better. All-naturally grown and seasonal fruits, free from pesticides and chemical fertilizers, will give you peace of mind about the origin and quality of the product.
