*"How Fruit Nutrition Benefits Health"*

Fruits have many benefits for your health and well being, and if eaten regularly can even aid you in losing weight. Mentioned here are some benefits of eating fruits:

     *Weight control:* Fruits help you in losing weight by satisfying
     your carving for sugars since they are not loaded with calories,
     they don’t let you gain too much weight

     *Packed with energy:* fruits provide you with much more energy to
     perform your daily duties and even exercises as they are rich in
     vitamins, minerals and enzymes that are essential for your health

     *Lower risk of developing heart diseases:* since fruits contain
     literally no cholesterols, they help maintain ideal levels of
     cholesterol in the blood, they are also packed full of potassium
     that is very healthy for the heart. They actually have the
     potential to lower the risk of heart diseases as well as aiding in
     lowering blood pressure due to the high potassium content.
     *May reduce the risks of developing certain cancers:* fruits
     contain a lot of anti oxidants, which help fight cancer producing
     cells. They also have natural chemicals that may aid in preventing
     the growth of mutating cells, especially colon cancer cells.

     *Fruits help in slowing down the aging process:* due to the
     anti-oxidants and vitamins in fruits, they help you stay younger,
     healthier and stronger. They give you the essential minerals and
     vitamins that will not let you have deficiencies and thus, have a
     better and longer life.

*How can you incorporate fruits into your diet?*

     Add dried pieces of fruit to your breakfast cereal

     Make fruit salads, and then refrigerate them

      Eat apples, bananas, pears, grape fruit or any other seasonal
     fruit before you go out

     fruit juice.
