- Coconut –Approximately 50% of the fatty acids in coconut fat are lauric acid. Lauric acid is a medium chain fatty acid (MCFA), which is easily digested, absorbed, and put to use nourishing your body. It is also antiviral and antibacterial, and therefore can help fight the free radicals in your body.
- Pineapple – Is the richest source of an enzyme called Bromelain. Why should you care? Well, if you exercise, Bromelain is key in breaking down proteins fighting inflammation and reducing swelling. It has also been shown to speed the recovery of injuries and swelling resulting from athletics, childbirth and surgery. Pineapple is also a very good source of Vitamin C.
- Mango– With half a mango providing you 40% of your daily Vitamin A and 15% of your daily Vitamin C requirement, it makes it easy to love this fruit. What is so important about these vitamins? More research has shown that Vitamins A and C (being antioxidants) can gobble up free radicals that can lead to cancer and heart disease.
