Taking a peek into Super Fruits

Shannon Clark explains the benefits of including super fruits in our diet.

As you go about improving your nutrition and trying to take in healthier foods each and every day, one category of foods not to leave out are the super fruits.  Fruits such as Acai, Goji, Maqui, and Mangosteen all offer tremendous benefits to your health and will help you feel absolutely great.

Let us take a quick look into what each of these super fruits has to offer so you can get a firm idea for yourself just why these are going to have such a huge influence on your body function.

Acai Berry

The Acai berry is one of the hottest fruits around and is often known for the essential fatty acids it contains.

While so many other fruits are completely fat free in nature, the Acai berry is going to provide you with healthy omega fats that are absolutely necessary for proper body function.

In addition to that, this fruit is also high in fibre content and will offer up vitamin E, calcium, copper, potassium, magnesium, and niacin, all nutrients that work together to fight off disease and improve your energy levels.

Goji Berry

The next berry to consider adding to your diet is the Goji berry. This fruit is rich in protein content, so if you are someone who typically does not get enough protein throughout the day, it may be a solution to help increase your intake upwards.

Goji berries are also good sources of vitamin C, riboflavin, potassium, iron, copper, zinc, and magnesium.

Overall, this berry can help to boost your immune system function, improve the metabolism, and help to reduce neurological disorders.

Users who consume it on an everyday basis also tend to notice more stable blood sugar levels, which can help ward off hunger and allow you to stick with your diet.

Mangosteen

Moving on with our super fruit list, Mangosteen is another super fruit not to overlook. This fruit is great for helping to reduce the inflammation in the body and provides a rich source of antioxidants.

Regular consumption of antioxidants is important for fighting off free radical damage that you get through the environment and that could potentially set you up for serious illness.
