Fruits with Highest Vitamin Content

Do you know which fruit tops in Vitamins A, C and E? Know which fruits to be had if you are particular with nutrients.

CantaloupeHighest in Vitamin A (3382 IU/100 g)

Help prevent wrinkles by eating cantaloupe regularly. Among fruits, cantaloupe is loaded with the highest Vitamin A, which promotes healthy skin. It is also blushing with Vitamin C and folate.

Acerola (west Indian cherry) – Highest in Vitamin C (1677mg)

Acerola is a small fruit that’s big on Vitamin C, the nutrient known to strengthen the immune system and keeps colds and flu away. Other Vitamin C-rich fruits include guavas, kiwi fruit, papaya and citrus fruits like pomelo.

AvocadosHighest in Vitamin E (3 mg); Vitamin B9/Folate (81 mcg), Vitamin B5/Pantothenic Acid (1 mg)

If you want a fruit that is constantly included on the list of having the highest nutrients, you must be looking for avocado, the most nutrient dense. Avocado is also an excellent source of fiber, potassium and omega-3 fatty acids. It helps fight depression through its high tryptophan content.

Kiwi fruitHighest in Vitamin K (40 mcg)

If avocado is not available, opt for kiwi, also one of the most nutritious. Compared to avocados, it can supply more Vitamin C and K and almost the same amount of the fertility-promoting folate.   

LycheeHighest in Vitamin B2/Riboflavin (1 mg)

Just what exactly does this small tropical spiky fruit can deliver? In addition to Vitamin B2, which is not commonly found in fruits, it is also rich in Vitamin C, fiber and copper.

Ground Cherries – Highest in Vitamin B3/Niacin (3 mg)

Ground cherries are small tomato-like orange fruits, which taste like a mix of tomato and pineapple.  One cup can supply 20% of the DV in Vitamin B3. Add in salads and desserts for an added natural form of iron, the mineral which boosts oxygen distribution throughout the body.

Others:

GuavaHighest in Lycopene (5203 mcg)

CantaloupeHighest in Beta- carotene (2020 mcg)

Japanese persimmon – Highest in Lutein+Zeathanthin (834 mcg)
