Healthiest fruits

Today I’m here to tell you which fruits are the healthiest and why. There’s a wide choice on our market, so let’s have a look at them!

I’ve made a list of 7 healthies fruits ever. And most of them belong to cheap healthy food! Which one do you like the most?

Mango

Mango contain huge amounts of beta caroten (look at its color!). Beta caroten is useful for converting into vitamin A, which is really important for our health. It supports bone growth and a healthy immune system. And mangoes are fully packed with vitamin C – almost half of your daily recommended dose!

Eat mangos fresh or make smoothie – it goes great with banana!

Grapefruit

We all know oranges as a source of vitamin C. But try grapefruits – they are way better source with higher amount of C. It has also high levels of fibre, which is good for the digestive system, and also potassium and vitamine A. 

Besides being a good source of vitamins and minerals, it is known for its ability to aid weight loss and reduce insulin resistance.

Grapefruit is the best choice for fast healthy snack.

Blueberries

Blueberries are classified to superfoods. You can add it to your oatmeal or a smoothie.

They have powerful health benefits, including being particularly high in fibre, vitamin C, vitamin K and manganese. 

Blueberries are also exceptionally high in antioxidants, which may reduce the risk of chronic conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

Bananas

Banana is one of the most common fruits. It’s is the perfect on-the-go snack, already wrapped. They are well known for being high in potassium. One medium banana provides 12% of the RDI for this mineral.

It’s also packed with fiber. The carbs in green, unripe bananas consist largely of resistant starch, which may improve blood sugar control and make you feel full.

Apples

Even more common fruit! Of course, apples are worth mentioning.

One medium apple is low on calories (only 80!) but heavy on quertecin (a powerful antioxidant that protects brain cell degeneration, which can lead to Alzheimer’s disease). They contain a high amount of fiber, vitamin C, potassium and vitamin K. They also provide some B vitamins.

There’s also pectin in apples – a prebiotic fiber that feeds the good bacteria in your gut and helps improve digestion and metabolic health.

Have apples with cinnamon for a snack, yummy!

Strawberries

Except its great taste, strawberries contain vitamin C, manganese, folate and potassium.

It belongs to fruits with lower glycemic index – eating them shouldn’t cause a big blood sugar spike. Similarly to other berries, strawberries have a high antioxidant capacity, which may reduce your risk of chronic disease.

Strawberries are the best to eat fresh, add to smoothies or mix with milk.

Cranberries

Cranberries can have impressive health benefits. 

They are full of vitamin C, manganese, vitamin E, vitamin K1 and copper, containing also flavanol polyphenols, which can improve health.

Drink juice or a tea with cranberries to prevent or cure urinary tract infections – it does really work.
