Mangoes are delicious and are known for being sweet and sour in many
areas of Islands. Mangoes have been named the most consumed fruit in the world
according to studies. There are over 1,000 varieties of mangoes all throughout
Asia, Mexico, and Tropics. The charts show that, 1 cup of mango contains 76%
vitamin C, 25% vitamin A, 1% vitamin B6 plus other B vitamins, 9% probiotic
fibre, 9% copper, 7% potassium, and 4% magnesium that applies in the daily
value. Mangoes are known to fight cancer because they're rich in antioxidants like
quercetin, isoquercitrin, astragalin, fisetin, gallic acid and methylgallat that help
protect the body to prevent colon, breast, leukemia, and prostate cancer. These are
incredible things to know that fruit and plant-based foods can cure and prevent
dis-ease from happening. Mangoes are also known to alkalize the body because
they're rich mango and tartaric acid, malic acid and citric acid that help maintain
the alkali reserve of and in the body. Other health benefits of mangoes are eye
care (rich in vitamin A), aids in digestion (enzymes that help breakdown protein),
help prevent heat stroke, aid in concentration and memory (rich in glutamine
acid), and regulates diabetes. Let the food be the medicine. Eat a mango a day!
Raspberries are loaded with nutrients and phytonutrients that are extremely
beneficial. For one, raspberries are power packed with antioxidants and anti-
inflammatory phytonutrients properties that are not only found but are
abundantly provided. These abundant antioxidants and phytonutrients are
enough to help protect against oxidative stress and excessive inflammation.
Raspberries are also great for lowering chronic dis-ease like obesity, type 2
diabetes, hypertension, and atherosclerosis. Also, new studies suggest two
compounds ketone and a flavonoid called tilliroside found in raspberries can
lower obesity risk and regulate blood sugar. Raspberries have also been
found to be beneficial by preventing chronic dis-ease thus preventing cancer
cells formation. In recent studies, phytonutrients found in raspberries have
been found to change signals between potential or existing cancer cells.
These phytonutrients create a signal causing a cycle of programmable cell
death called apoptosis. Raspberries are overall extremely beneficial for your
health and can be easily included in your lifestyle. Remember we must eat to
live, not live to eat.
Kiwi fruit is underestimated in my opinion because of their small size, but
something to always remember is not to judge by appearance because what is on
the inside that counts. Kiwifruit can help protect against asthma, macular
degeneration, and are good for our cardiovascular health. Kiwi fruit are high in
vitamin C, K, E, copper, fiber, potassium, manganese, and foliate.
