Some of the most well-known fruits have unexpected health benefits. The US “Medical Daily” recently summarized this.
Apple is good for the brain. Researchers at the University of Quebec in Canada found that the antioxidant quercetin contained in apples can improve the overall health of the nervous system. Researchers at Cornell University found that apples help protect nerve cells from oxidative stress and reduce people’s risk of developing cognitive impairment.
Bananas prevent heart disease. The dietary fiber, potassium, vitamin C and vitamin B6 contained in bananas work together to ensure that the heart is in optimal working condition.
Grapes help burn fat. Grape is rich in resveratrol, which is especially good at burning fat. Researchers at the University of Georgia have found that resveratrol can cause fat cells to break down faster than normal by 2.46 times.
Oranges can reduce wrinkles. The rich vitamin C in oranges helps reverse skin damage caused by sunlight and pollution, reduces wrinkles, and improves the overall texture of the skin.
Pears can prevent cancer. Pears contain more dietary fiber than other fruits, and it helps to excrete carcinogens in the colon, thereby reducing the risk of colon cancer. In addition, it also contains flavonoids, phlorizin, which can inhibit the growth of melanoma, lymphoma, liver cancer and colon cancer cells.
