5 of the Healthiest Fruits to Eat

Looking to add a few jewels to your diet? Look no further than these 5 healthy fruits.

Who doesn’t love food? It’s what brings people together and gives people an incentive to come to your business meeting. Joking aside, when people eat, it pays off to eat well. Eating healthy also means eating delicious foods, no matter if any diet says otherwise. With the cornucopia of food available to our palates, fruits make up a significant portion, and some are especially good for us. Below is a list of 5 of the healthiest fruits to eat.

1. Apples

In your local grocery store, you are bound to find multiple varieties on this humble fruit. Apples are hardy and filling, yet one apple contains only about 80 calories. This makes apples a great choice of fruit when it comes to losing weight or just staying fit. Meanwhile, apples are high in the antioxidant called quercetin, which protects our brains from cell degeneration. Studies have also shown that apples can reduce blood pressure, cholesterol level, and the risk of heart disease.

2. Blueberries

Blueberries are tiny yet powerful packages of nutrition in many areas. They are good for the heart, the brain, the eyes, and the body overall. Blueberries help to control the release of glucose into the bloodstream, which helps regulate blood sugar levels. They are rich in anthocyanin, which boosts the brain’s functionality. They also can prevent macular degeneration and are rich in vitamin C. No wonder they are one of the healthiest fruits!

3. Pomegranates

If pomegranates are known for anything other than the perplexity on how to eat them, it’s their antioxidant-rich nature. Pomegranates have cancer-fighting powers and memory-boosting prowess. Like other good foods, pomegranates reduce inflammation, cholesterol levels, and blood pressure. 

4. Red Grapes

Red grapes came before wine, and wine, as researchers and the general public know better now, has benefits for the heart. Red grapes are best known for their benefits of lowering blood pressure and reducing inflammation.

5. Citrus Fruits

Citrus fruits, like oranges, lemons, grapefruits, and even kumquats, are famous for their high dosage of vitamin C. Eating citrus is an excellent way to keep contagious colds away any time of year. It can even help to repair damaged skin and hair. Citrus fruits also contain folate, which causes the body to produce more dopamine, and so a more happy feeling for your day.
