Importance of Fruits and their Natural Benefits
Fruit is an excellent food and medicine as well. Fruits and vegetables may cure serious diseases, especially stomach ailments. By eating fruits one can keep illness at bay. Besides, these are nature's boon for good health and vitality. They have good taste and possess several vitamins and minerals. They act as scavengers in our body and drive away toxins from it. Fruits contain pure water, sugar, vitamins, minerals, alkali, organic acids, proteins, fat, fibre and some aromatic compounds which give sweet smell to them.
Fruits contain 5-15% sugar which is absorbed cent per cent by our body. Fruit's carbohydrate changes into sugar with the help of sunlight. This type of sugar does not need intestinal juice for digestion. So, by eating fruits we take the already digested sugar.
Fruits are alkaline in nature. They decrease the acidity of blood, thereby reducing the workload of lungs, liver and kidney etc. This is the reason why fruits are very useful for asthma, chronic cold, bronchitis, pleuricy, jaundice and kidney diseases. Ascorbic acid and alkali present in fruits kill the bacteria.
Since fruits contain less protein and fat, so their digestion period in stomach is of shorter duration as compared to other foods. Fruit skin contains much fibre which helps clean the stomach. So, don't peel the skin off the fruits, rather eat them after washing. If the fruit skin is very thick, then scrape it from inside and eat because concentration of vitamins & minerals is quite high just below the fruit skin.
Always drink fresh fruit juice, otherwise it will become sour or stale. Take juice in its natural form i.e. without adding spices or salt. Do not eat fruits in excess as it sometimes causes indigestion. Always eat ilaichi with banana and drink milk after mango. Fruits are much better than cereals. Use them daily after meals.
