Five Fruits That Will Energize Your Body and Spirit

What are your favorite fruits? Strawberry, kiwi, watermelon, plum, and avocado are loaded with many health benefits. These fruits are great as snacks throughout the day.

Summer is upon us and with that we are blessed with an abundant of fresh fruits and vegetables. I love fruits of all kind. Strawberries, avocados, kiwi, watermelon, and plums are among many favorites for many people.

The health benefits of these five fresh fruits are listed here.

Strawberries

Strawberries have excellent sources of fiber, more vitamin than an orange, and can maintain normal blood sugar levels by just eating one cup.
Strawberries also can clean out harmful toxin in the blood, and remove tartar from teeth, plus strengthen the gum.

Avocados

Avocados supply lots of cancer fighting antioxidants. If you think they are loaded with fat then you are right, but the fat are monounsaturated fat, which are good for you fat.
Avocado has been used to aid people with sexual problems, help with digestive and circulatory problem.

Kiwi

Kiwi can help reduce blood clotting, which can contribute to heart attacks. Two or three kiwi a day equal a daily dose of an aspirin. Best of all, kiwi is all natural, and gives no side-effect. Kiwi is also high in fiber which helps protect from heart disease, diabetes, and colon cancer.

Kiwi is also known for uses in treating wheezing, and coughing.

Watermelon

Watermelon contains a good source of potassium, vitamins A and C. Just two cups of watermelon provides 18 milligrams of cancer-fighting antioxidant lycopene, more than in a medium tomato.

It is also advised to keep watermelon at room temperature since they have much higher levels of antioxidants (beta-carotene and lycopene) than those that keep in the refrigerator. They are even better than freshly picked melons. Cool watermelon a few hours before cutting and serving since once cut, it should be refrigerated.

Plum

Plums come in many different colors, and provide a good source of vitamin C, A, B2, beta-carotene, and potassium. Plums are also a great source of dietary fiber.
Plums help to reduce and protect the symptom of cold, flu, asthma, heart disease, stroke, rheumatoid arthritis, and cancer. It also helps absorb iron in the body, and a great natural laxative.

Stock up on these fresh fruits and eat them as often as you can. Most of these fruits are small in sizes, so eating two or three servings a day is possible. Healthy mind, healthy body, and healthy spirit will yield a better life.

  43. I agree with Ilona that it is too bad that fruit prices have increased, but there are a few ways of counteracting that trend. Shop with farmers’ markets if possible. There is a man who sells his produce at the side of the road near my house, and I make sure to stop to get my watermelons. They are always fresh, and I help out the local economy.

  44. All good foods for you and yummy too!

  45. all fruit are good, no?

  50. I’m originally from the Caribbean, and I can say I have seen the benefits of eating fruits. As a boy I ate fruits everyday (mangoes, plums, sapodillas, avocadoes, watermellon, bananas, guava, papaya, sour sop, sugar apple)and so on.

    I’m 47 years; I have no internal organ problems. No heart problems, no lung problems, no kidney problems, no stomach problem, no diabetes, no high blood pressure, no allergies,an so on. I do not drink, smoke or use drugs. I drink alot of water. I hate medicine.

    The food in America is killing people. Go back to what God created.

  51. My new years resolution is to drop the cookies & add more fruits & vegetables to my meals & snacks. Thanks for the advice.
