Fruits At Work
There are countless health benefits of eating these two most popular fruits. Other than the health advantages, the appeal of apples and bananas also lies in the fact that these fruits are relatively easier to eat. We all look for things that we can do easily and food is no different.
Ask anyone and they’ll tell you that when it comes to food, they’d rather make and eat something that is quick, fast and filling. Unfortunately, this is the exact same reason for the world’s obsession with unhealthy fast food. However, due to increased health awareness, more and more people are turning to healthy food alternatives such as fresh fruit when they want to eat something fuss-free and fast.
When it comes to grabbing an apple or a banana, it is almost like a reflex action and you don’t think twice about picking up one of these fruits and munching on them. An apple is the easiest fruit to eat since you just pick one up and start eating straight away. A banana isn’t much difficult to eat and far less so than peeling an orange or a kiwifruit.
Apart from the ease of eating, apples and bananas are also loaded with nutritional benefits, some of which are:
Both fruits are excellent sources of dietary fiber, which is essential for the proper functioning of a healthy digestive system. Dietary fiber is not only great for gastrointestinal health but it also helps regulate cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar levels.
Apples and bananas are the fruits to turn to when you are looking for a quick shot of natural energy. The naturally occurring sugars in these fruits in the form of natural and complex carbohydrates provide fuel to the body’s cell and take little time to digest, helping the body absorb them faster and better.
Full of essential minerals such as magnesium, apples and bananas provide a good source of minerals in the diet. Bananas in particular are an extremely high source of potassium which is essential in maintaining blood pressure.
Containing a plethora of vitamins, both apples and bananas provide a good amount of Vitamin C that is important as an antioxidant in the body and is also vital for building up the body’s immunity against colds and flus. Vitamin B6 is found in generous quantities in bananas, that helps metabolize carbohydrates and proteins in the body.
The benefits of apples and bananas are immense. They are tasty fruits and due to their wonderful flavor and ease of eating it is not hard to see why these fruits are so popular amongst people of all age groups and backgrounds, all over the world.
Available the year round, apples and bananas can be enjoyed anywhere and anytime. However, to get the most out of them, have plenty of them when they are in season.
