Fruits for healthy living 2

e. Mangoes: Mangoes are more popular than ever due to their high levels of beta-carotene, which the body converts into vitamin A to promote bone growth and a healthy immune system. Even more, mangoes have over fifty percent of daily vitamin C requirement.

f. Apples: Possibly the lightest on the calorie counter, apples make a great choice for weight watchers. They're also heavy on quercetin, which shield against brain cell degeneration and reduce risk of developing high blood pressure.

g. Pomegranates: As a beverage of choice, pomegranate juice contains at least twice the antioxidant capacity of red wine or green tea, and also sustains energy and controls blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and improves cardiovascular health.

h. Grapefruit: Orange is a great vitamin C source, but you want grapefruits because bigger is better. Half a grapefruit is a vitamin C powerhouse, and also has high levels of fiber, potassium, and vitamin A. Some studies suggest that grapefruit can alleviate the symptoms of arthritis and repair damaged or oily skin and hair.

i. Bananas: A banana makes the perfect graband-go snack, seeing as it's already wrapped. Its potassium and fiber content promote long-lasting energy and keep you alert all day long. Without the fat or salt, bananas are healthier than granola bars or pretzels.

j. Blueberries: Considered as superfoods, the blueberry's vitamin C, anthocyanin and other antioxidants help fight diseases and boost brainpower. According to research, people who eat more blueberries are less likely to develop macular degeneration in later years.
