5 Superfruits You Must Incorporate Into Your Diet For Amazing Health

Superfoods are all the rage but have you heard of them? Superfruits are loaded with antioxidants, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, but not all fruits fall under the superfruit category. Five superfruits you should introduce into your diet include goji berries, pomegranates, figs, acai berries and mangosteen. To gain optimal nutrients from each superfruit, it is best to consume it in its most natural, raw form- not processed or cooked. 

So what's all the hype around superfruits? We know they are healthy for us, but what are the benefits? Consumed on a regular basis, superfruits can help you live a longer, prevent disease and maintain a healthy weight- just to name a few!

 

Pomegranates contain punicalagin, a powerful antioxidant. It attaches itself to free flowing radicals within the body to neutralize them, otherwise free radicals cause damage to cells within the body. Pomegranates are also high in vitamin k, which has been shown to help prevent the hardening of arteries making pomegranates an important fruit for heart protection.

 

Figs are high in fiber, great for people trying to manage and even shed a few pounds. Consistent dietary fiber on a daily basis is important for overall health, especially gut health. Figs contain calcium, iron, and potassium. Minerals important for heart health, bone and blood health.

 

Acai Berries we’ve seen them everywhere, covered in dark chocolate, dried and acai-based smoothie bowls. While acai berries are healthy, they are best consumed in their raw, natural state to attain all the health benefits that include immune boosting, heart health, and natural energy. Due to the high antioxidant content in acai berries they have been hailed as one of the go-to fruits for beauty and skin health. If consumed on a regular basis the berries have been shown to improve ones complexion and give a radiant glow to the skin.

 

Mangosteen grows in Southeast Asia. Mangosteen is a superfruit many Westerners are not familiar with, at least not yet but they have nutrients we should all be searching for from fruit. Mangosteen contains high amounts of minerals like copper, magnesium and potassium. Important minerals help with the prevention of heart disease manage and control blood pressure. One cool fact about this fruit, they have been used in Eastern Medicine practices to treat everything from mental health to gastrointestinal issues.

 

Goji Berries native to China, these berries are packed with amino acids, fiber, iron, and polysaccharides. Research has shown consuming goji berries on a regular basis can boost energy and strengthen the immune system. Due to a high amount of vitamin c and complex carbohydrates, it doesn't give you a sugar crash post consumption.

Superfruits are great to consume when you have access to them, but it is equally important to eat well-balanced, organic meals three times a day.
