HEALTH BENEFITS

Pitaya or dragon fruit is how they’re most commonly known are an amazing fruit in

appearance and health benefits.  Pitaya are low in cholesterol and high in fiber making

them an easy fruit to digest.  Being high in fiber, pitayas can help regulate diabetes by

stabilizing blood sugars and spikes. They also contain healthy monounsaturated fats that

are good for your cardiovascular health and lowering cholesterol levels.  Pitayas are

loaded with antioxidants that are great for getting rid of free radicals and cancer

producing cells.  This fruit gives acai berries a run for their money in the antioxidants

department.  Being rich in antioxidants pitayas can reduce the sign of aging by keeping

skin tight and young!  Pitayas can even be used as a facemask mixed with a little honey.  

This fruit is also great for suppressing arthritis because of the amazing anti-inflammatory

properties.  Pitayas are also good for avoiding acne, soothing sunburns, treating colored

hair, and loaded with vitamins.

 

Bananas are extremely good for you and your health for many reasons.  For one,

scientist believe that bananas were the first fruit on Earth.  Bananas are grown in over

107 countries and are among the most consumed fruits in the world.  Bananas are also

good for lowering cardiovascular dis-ease including high blood pressure, high

cholesterol, and asthma.  The nutrients like fiber, potassium, vitamin B6, and C found in

bananas promote a healthy heart.  The daily intake of fiber for an adult is 4700 mg and

less than 2% of US adults meet those daily intakes.  People are not eating enough fruit

throughout the day causing them to feel hungry.  Studies show that people with higher

intakes of potassium have a 49% lower risk of ischemic heart dis-ease.  Bananas can also

prevent cancer cells from forming by destroying the formation of free radicals because of

the high levels of potassium.  Bananas are also good for diabetes, treating diarrhea

preserving memory, and boosting mood (tryptophan amino acid helps preserve memory
