Summer has arrived in all its glitz and glory and it brings with it soaring temperatures and an insatiable craving for ice-creams! While it is alright to give in to these cravings once in a while, what one needs to remember is that having fruits is what will keep you healthy and hydrated during this season.
We’ve compiled a list of 5 summer fruits and their mind-blowing benefits. Take a look!
While apples are regarded as a superfood, pears shouldn’t be left far behind. Not many are aware that a single Pear has more fibre than an apple, comparable Vitamin C and just a little more carbs and calories. Pears are great for the overall health of your body. In addition to controlling blood sugar levels, this fab fruit also aides in digestion and boosts your immune system.
Sweet Lime, also known as Mosambi, is a rich source of Vitamin C. The acids in this fruit helps flush out toxins from your bowel tract. If you’re prone to constipation, this is one fruit you should have on a regular basis as it contains a high amount of dietary fibre. The juice of Sweet Lime has the ability to keep you cool while you face the blazing heat of summer which is why it is a must-have.
Watermelon has 92% water content and it is rich with a variety of nutrients! Each juicy bite that you take of this fruit has significant levels of Vitamins A, B6 and C. What’s more? This quintessential summer fruit is also fat-free! Recent studies have found that watermelon seeds are wonderfully nutritious too, that is, they are high in potassium, magnesium and Vitamin B.
Next on this list is Papaya. This one is considered to be an all-round summer fruit. In addition to soothing sunburn and reducing tan, Papaya also lowers blood pressure and aides in digestion. You can eat it, apply it on your skin and even make a hair pack of it! It’s also a great fruit to include in your weight loss diet!
This list would be incomplete without the ultimate summer fruit that children as well as adults wait for all year long! Mangoes taste so good that people often forget that they have several health benefits too. You can mix the juice of green mango with water and add a sweetener to cool down your body and prevent harm from heat. What’s more? Vitamins A and C in this fruit helps keep your immune system healthy and strong!
The above-mentioned fruits are not only healthy to consume, but also a delight for your taste buds! Have more to add to this list? We’d love to know in the comments below.
