DISTINCT/NOT-YOUR-TYPICAL ROUND FRUITS

dragon fruit, mangosteen, and peach

 

  • Dragon Fruit. 🐉 This exotic, fiery fruit is rich in antioxidants, vitamin C, fiber, and prebiotics that boost your immunity, help control blood sugar levels, as well as promote good bacteria growth (probiotics) to fight disease-causing bacteria and help with digestion.

  • Mangosteen. Do not let its name fool you, because it tastes nothing like a mango! This fruit is known for its potential anti-inflammatory, anticancer, anti-aging, and anti-diabetic effects coupled with healthy skin maintenance and immunity-boosting benefits.

  • Peach. 🍑 Known to be a sweet and juicy fruit, it is no wonder if the peach has started gaining popularity as a fan favorite. More than just its pleasant taste, it also contributes to healthy digestion, helps protect the skin, and may improve heart health, prevent certain cancers, as well as reduce allergic symptoms.

  • Plum. 🍎 Plums are more commonly known for their dried counterparts called prunes. They are known to boost heart health in terms of reducing the risk of stroke as well as managing high blood pressure and blood sugar levels. These fruits also contain antioxidants in their peels that help protect the body from cell damage that may cause cancer.

  • Chico. 👦🏻 These round, little, golden fruits are perfect for your chicos (Spanish for “little boys”)! Their health benefits include boosting heart health in terms of managing high blood pressure, preventing constipation, strengthening bones, nurturing hair, and contributing to the health of the eyes.

  • Longgan. This fruit is known to grow in clusters just like grapes and even has a gelatinous texture that slightly resembles grapes. They are known for their anti-inflammatory and immunity-boosting benefits. Longgans may also help manage anemia, maintain young and glowing skin, reduce stress and anxiety, as well as help with insomnia.
