Top 3 healthiest fruits
What are the similarities between pineapple, banana, apple, citrus, strawberry, papaya, grape, watermelon, coconut, and avocado? According to internist-cardiologist Dr. Willie T. Ong, who received the Outstanding Filipino Physician Award from the Department of Health in 2007, these are the top three healthiest fruits.
1 Apple. A snack high in both soluble and insoluble fiber and low in calories. According to nutritionists, one large apple contains approximately 130 calories, none of which are from fat. Apples additionally have no sodium or cholesterol — supplements many need to keep away from explicitly. One apple contains 34 grams of carbohydrates, 25 of which are from the natural sugars in the fruit.
In an article, Lisa Sefcik wrote: 20 percent of your daily value (DV) of fiber is provided by one apple. In addition, you get 2% of your daily value of vitamin A, iron, calcium, and 8% of your daily value of vitamin C from apples. Since almost half of the fruit’s vitamin C content is contained within the skin, it is best to consume apples unpeeled. Pectin and apple skins are valuable sources of the fruit’s fiber.
2 Avocado. The most nutritious natural product on the planet. The reason is that the fruit “contains in excess of 25 essential nutrients, including vitamins A, B, C, E, and K, copper, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, and potassium,” as stated by Health Online Zine.
Avocado also has protein, fiber, and beneficial phytochemicals like beta-sitosterol, lutein, and glutathione that protect against a variety of diseases. Additionally, “avocado is one of the fruits that you could be eating that has a lot of calories.” This is because it has more fat than other fruits, about 20 times more than average.
3 bananas More bananas are consumed daily than any other fruit, raw or cooked, in one form or another. This is what is stated in the book Tropical and Subtropical Agriculture.
Unknowingly, bananas are among the healthiest fruits known to man. Alexander the Incomparable was so captivated by the ethics of this organic product that he depicted it as “the grand organic product that posed a flavor like nectar improved in honey.”
