One of the best ways to improve the quality of your life is by paying apt attention to your diet. A famous saying goes, “let food be thy medicine”, which invariably means that choosing the right healthy food can boost your body’s immune system, aiding its battle against certain diseases.
Drugs are made from plants, fruits and seed extracts. Today, we would focus on fruits, why they are essential for our body, and how they influence our diet.
Our bodies are our vehicles to keep our engines running. What we consume influences our health, whether positive or negative, depending on our diet choice. Eating fruits is excellent because it is a source of essential vitamins, minerals and fibres, which your body needs daily, and it has enormous benefits to the body.
Fruits are an excellent source of vitamins A, C, and E. They are also an excellent source of potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, and folic acid. The mentioned elements help boost your reproductive and immune system because of carotenoids, which act as antioxidants and prevent diseases. Fruits are also a superb source of fibre; the high fibre content in fruits helps improve your digestive system and promotes gut health.
A fun way of having your fruits is by having smoothies and juices made from 100% fruits. Smoothies and juices are a perfect way of incorporating essential nutrients the body requires and their associated vitamins/minerals for the day and can be a suitable replacement for multivitamins.
The low-calorie content of fruits, smoothies and juices makes it ideal for including in your meal plan to kick off a weight loss or weight maintenance; according to studies, smoothies supported feelings of fullness for over 2 hours. Smoothies make you feel full, thus reducing consumption, leading to weight loss. They are so easy to make or purchase.
If you currently do not include fruits in your daily diet, choose to start today. Your future body will thank you for it.
