                                                                               JUICY FRUITS

Including fresh seasonal fruits in your daily diet should be mandatory. While there are many that are beneficial during the sunny months ahead, some are not widely available in India; some are heavy on the pocket; while some others are a combination of both the factors. Here we bring you a list of seven fruits that are nutritious, refreshing, and effective in combating the scorching sun and the accompanying health problems.

 

Mangoes – The king of all fruits is the most sought-after in the summer season. Mango is loaded with fiber and contains high amount of iron and selenium. It is also a rich source of vitamin A, vitamin C as well as minerals like potassium, calcium and phosphorus. The fruit also has immunity-boosting properties. Don't be shy and dig your teeth in this yummy and healthy delight.

                                                     

 

Melons - Watermelon, as the name indicates, has high water content, which keeps the body hydrated and refreshed this summer. Watermelons protect the skin against sun damage. Muskmelon or Cantaloupe is another great and healthy summer choice. The fruit is rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium and zinc, and helps improve immunity. While selecting a muskmelon, make sure you pick one that smells sweet and musky.

                                   

Litchi - Litchi is very popular due to its sweet and succulent flavor, and fleshy consistency. It is easily available in the first couple of months in summer. This fruit is a pure delight for people with sweet tooth and is a rich source of protein, vitamin, fat, citric acid, pectin, phosphorus and iron. It contains several nutrients and vitamins that help fight various diseases like cancer, cardio-vascular ailments, bone degeneration and poor stamina. It is also very beneficial for skin care, growth in children, and strengthening of the body.

                                                         

 

Guava: It is a sodium-free fruit with low fat and low calorie. Like several fruits mentioned above, it contains vitamin C which prevents cough, cold, diarrhea and dysentery - common summer health problems. Guava also contains copper, which helps in the production and absorption of hormones. This helps in improving the function of the endocrine system especially the thyroid glands - which are responsible for the body's metabolism. Being rich in antioxidants like lycopene, guava protects body cells from damage and reduces chances of cancer.

                                                          

 

Grapes: Grapes are an obvious summer choice - readily available, easy to eat and excellent in quenching hunger and thirst and thus one of the better options for summers. Those who love this fruit can rejoice in the knowledge that grapes help in weight loss by reducing the fat storage capacity of cells. They also protect the body from the harmful effects of radiation, boost cardio-vascular health, assist in cleansing blood and prevent the degenerative nerve disease.

                                                             

 

Papaya: This is a delicious tropical fruit that can be eaten raw or cooked. Papaya is extremely rich in vitamins A, vitamin C, folate and other phytochemicals, which gives it strong antibacterial, anti-cancerous and anti-stress food properties. Over the years, Papaya has also built up a reputation for being a loyal beauty partner for women - whether it's the antioxidants present in it that slow down the ageing process, or the fresh glow that it gives to the skin, or its proven role in weight loss.

                                                                   

Orange: This fruit contains all varieties of vitamins found in other fruits with vitamin K being the only exception. Oranges can be an outstanding source of vitamin C, thiamin and folate which provides natural UV protection, brings down stress level and enhance the production of red blood cells in the body. They also replenish the potassium lost through perspiration and provide relief in muscular cramps.
