Restore the body in a number of ways with the antioxidant-packed strawberry. Not only is this juicy, red fruit loaded with vitamins A, B-complex and E, but it contains zinc, iron, manganese, and other essential minerals. Their rich vitamin C content can help strengthen your immune system by protecting you from any flu or cold that may be going around your home or workplace. If you are suffering with lupus, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, COPD or another autoimmune disorder, the anti-inflammatory effects of the rich phenol content in strawberries can offer fantastic support.
The blueberry is a popular berry for its delicious taste and incredible healing properties, many of which have yet to be discovered. Antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals abound in this tiny, powerful fruit. If you’re looking to improve your cognitive abilities or offer your circulatory system greater support, making blueberries a regular part of your diet can be very helpful. The larger cultivated blueberry offers some wonderful health benefits, but the smaller wild blueberry exceeds it and all other foods in its healing might. For this recipe, feel free to use cultivated blueberries, wild blueberries, or a delicious mix of both.
The kiwi fruit doesn’t look like much from the outside, but once you slice one open you’ll see the stunning interior.
The banana is filled with essential trace minerals and macro minerals. The potassium found in a banana is incredible for helping to support neurotransmitter function. A rich creation of electrolytes can stem from the combined efforts of the banana's bioavailable potassium and abundant amino acids. If you’re in need of digestive assistance, bananas may be able to help. If you suffer from a hyperactive colon and small intestinal tract, this natural antispasmodic can aid in offering relief as well.
Once you learn just how amazing the orange is, you will begin to celebrate each time you get the chance to snack on this miraculous fruit. The high level of flavonoids and limonoids found in oranges and their fellow citrus, the tangerine, help to ignite the coenzyme glutathione, which is abundant in these two fruits. Oranges and tangerines will be a vital piece of battling the global chronic illness issue thanks in part to this particularly powerful connection between the flavonoids and limonoids and the glutathione.
