Healthy Fruits For Healthy Living Pt 1

Part One

All fruits are healthy to the human body and healing in their own way. Such fruits include apples, apricots, bananas, blueberries, cantaloupe, cranberries, figs, grapefruit, grapes, kiwi fruit, lemon/limes and oranges.

Other healing fruits include papaya, pears, pineapple, plums, prunes, raisins, raspberries, strawberries and watermelon. Here we take a look at a variety of the healing properties of a selection of fruits.

Amaranth is a food that not everyone is familiar with. While technically a fruit, amaranth is commonly used as a type of grain that is found in many different types of breads, muffins, pasta and other foods that are made up of flour. The seeds of amaranth are extremely high in protein that builds muscle and it is much more plentiful than the protein found in other types of grains.

Amaranth seeds are also excellent at building up the immune system because it is very high in zinc, copper and magnesium. Apricots are excellent antioxidants and are full of vitamin C and beta-carotene. Research studies have yielded the fact that beta carotene is beneficial at protecting the body against lung cancer.

Apricots are chocked full of fiber. If you decide to purchase apricots they are more nutritious if you buy them fresh as opposed to canned.

Bananas are full of potassium and are beneficial to lowering blood pressure. Bananas are full of vitamin B6 and studies show they are good for encouraging the strength of the immune system. Bananas are particularly good to start off the day. Eat a banana with a glass of low fat milk and a piece of whole wheat bread (or toast) with peanut butter for breakfast and it will give you plenty of energy. For a change of pace whip up a banana shake in the blender and drink your start to a good day!

Evidence is also pointing to the fact that vitamin C decreases the incidence of mouth cancers, throat cancers as well as pancreatic cancer and stomach cancer.

Figs are beneficial to health, and that is the case regardless of whether you choose to eat figs fresh or in their dried form. Figs have plenty of vitamin C, fiber, magnesium and potassium in them.

Figs are a type of fruit fiber that is able to decrease blood pressure, and in particular, systolic blood pressure, which is the top number of the blood pressure reading which in turn, calculates the pressure of the contractions of the heart. Fiber in general is connected to decreasing the bottom number of the blood pressure equation, which is the diastolic blood pressure. The diastolic blood pressure stands for the pressure of the heart when it is resting between its contracting action.
