here comes another SUPER FOODS

Ok, we have seen many so called superfoods,
dragon fuit and kohlabi salad

dragon fruit with coconut yogurt

goji berries, chia, pomegranate, Acai etc. etc. And here is another one. Dragon Fruits. It is actually first time this year that I have noticed this funny looking fruit. It is bright red so I assumed that was high in anti oxidant. And It is true. Dragon fruits are high in antioxidants, which help to fight carcinogenic free-radicals from forming in the body. In addition, they are a good source of Vitamin C, and are rich in minerals, especially calcium and phosphorus. They are also low in calories and high in fiber, while the seeds are have high polyunsaturated fatty acids. Some studies have found that it helps control levels of glucose blood sugar levels as well. ( good for diabetes) It is also said to help excrete heavy metal toxins from the body and lower cholesterol and blood pressure. Dragonfruits are also known to be a natural laxative. So don't miss out! eat one now :-)
