10 Reasons to Eat Fruit


Fruit consists of mainly water

Like 80% of our body is water so 80% of fruit consists of water. This makes it easy to digest and very healthy.

Brain Food

Fruit has a positive effect on your brain and helps you recall information easier and faster. It does this because it contains natural sugars which stimulate and nourish the brain, it also contains vitamins and phytochemicals which help keep the brain healthy.

The Miraculous Healing Effects Of Fruit

There are many cases reported where people claim that they cured themselves from cancer or other diseases by following a strict diet of raw fruits and/or vegetables. Since we still don't know that much about fruit and its contents this is not impossible. We do know that fruits contain different types of natural chemicals called polyphenols such as quercetin which is known to have healing properties.

Fruit is Fairly Cheap

Fruit is a relatively inexpensive product. Have a look at how much money you spend on other food. It could be worth replacing some of those expenses with fruit.

Fibre

It is a known fact that a diet with plenty of fibre helps prevent corpulence, high blood pressure, and other factors that increase the chance of heart and other diseases. The best source of natural fibre is fruit.

Fruit Is 100% Bad-Cholesterol Free

No doubt about it; too much cholesterol is not good for our bodies. Fruit contains very little cholesterol whereas animal products like meat and dairy contain a lot of cholesterol.

Fruit Helps Lower Cholesterol

Fruit contains vitamins and phytochemicals with antihyperlipidemic effects which help prevent the oxidation of cholesterol, which reduces the chance of it being deposited in the arteries.

Fruit Makes You Feel Better

There have been many cases where people suffering from depression have reported slowly but surely getting out of their depression after starting to regularly eat more fresh fruit.

Ethical Reasons To Eat Fruit

Fruit doesn't have to be killed and slaughtered before you can eat it. There is little to no economic difficulty in producing fruits and vegetables. If the land given for cattle production in America alone was used for growing grains, fruits and vegetables there would be enough food to feed one third of the worlds population!

Fruit Is Natural Food

Fruit is food that has been made by plants to be eaten by animals in order to spread seeds. When you see a piece of fruit hanging from a tree, the tree actually 'wants' you to eat it. "Eat my fruits and help me spread my seeds." Thatís how nature works.

The Human Diet

Here at Vedic Organics we believe a healthy human diet consists of fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, milk, grains and water. Humans can protect animals like cows and horses, feed them in exchange for help in working the land and help cultivate the plants and trees. In this way animals, plants and humans can all live in symbiosis supporting each other, it is so nice.
