Here are three amazing Super Fruits for you to add to your diet, or to take in a natural supplement form:
1. Acai Berry (Euterpe Oleracea)
Supports: Protection of cells from damage that can lead to diseases like cancer, in addition to possibly directly inhibiting the growth of some types of cancer. Substances in acaí berries may reduce inflammation and could possibly slow the spread of cancer cells. Also, some lab studies of acaí extracts led to positive effects on blood vessels that could be useful for many different medical conditions. Acaí berries seem to have very high levels of antioxidants -- comparable to cranberries. Acaí berries also contain healthy fatty acids, such as oleic acid, one of the same oils found in olive oil.
2.Strawberry (Fragaria Spp.)
Supports: Conditions including diarrhea, sluggish intestines, liver disease, yellowed skin (jaundice), pain and swelling (inflammation) of the lining of the respiratory tract, gout , arthritis, nervous tension, water retention (edema), kidney ailments involving gravel and stones, fever, night sweats, and “tired blood” (anemia).
It is also used for “purifying the blood,” stimulating metabolism, preventing menstruation, and supporting “natural weight loss.”
Strawberry contains chemicals that are antioxidants and might keep cancer cells from multiplying. Other chemicals in strawberry might slow down the speed at which the nervous system ages. That’s why some researchers are interested in studying whether strawberry might help prevent or treat Alzheimer’s disease or other diseases that involve progressive loss of nerve function.
3. Pomegranate Extract (Punica Granatum) Fruit
Supports: reducing the symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or improving breathing in people with this condition. Pomegranate contains a variety of chemicals that might have antioxidant effects. Pomegranate is used for conditions of the heart and blood vessels, including high blood pressure, congestive heart failure (CHF), heart attack, “hardening of the arteries” (atheroscolosis), and high cholesterol. It is also used for conditions of the digestive tract, including diarrhea, dysentery, and tapeworm and other intestinal parasites.
Some people use pomegranate for flu, swelling of the lining of the mouth (stomatitis), gum disease, erectile dysfunction (ED), diabetes and a complication called acidosis, bleeding, and HIV disease. It is also used for preventing prostate cancer, obesity, and weight loss.
Pomegranate is used as a gargle for sore throat, and it is applied to the skin to treat hemorrhoids. (Source- WebMD.com)
