Varsha is an enthusiastic writer who loves to do extensive research on topics of interest.

Fruits provide a plethora of vitamins and minerals. They provide a whole pharmacy of natural medicines for our needs – anti-inflammatories, diuretics, anti-oxidants, anti-histamines, tonics for the heart and lung, the liver and the digestive system and protection against cancer.

Here is a list of 20 fruits you should include in your diet for overall health benefits.

Apples

Studies have found that apples are beneficial for heart health due to high levels of pectin and vitamin C which helps in keeping cholesterol
levels stable.1

Moreover, apples are also a fantastic source of fiber, both soluble and insoluble: one large apple can provide 10 percent of your daily recommended fiber intake. And high-fiber foods are useful in preventing heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels.2,3,4

Pectin is also known to protect from the adverse effects of pollution because of its ability of binding to heavy metals, such as lead or mercury, in the body
and carrying them safely out.5,6

The malic and tartaric acids in apples help to neutralize the acid by-products of indigestion and help your body cope with excess protein or rich, fatty foods.

Apples are first-class therapy for any digestive problems or infections, being both soothing and antiseptic.

One large apple(223g) provides you with the following nutrients as per daily recommended value:

  • 10% Carbs
  • 21% Fiber
  • 1% Protein
  • 2% Vitamin A
  • 17% Vitamin C
  • 2% Vitamin E
  • 6% Vitamin K
  • 3% Riboflavin and thiamin
  • 5% Vitamin B6
  • 3% Magnesium
  • 7% Potassium
  • 4% Manganese7

Oranges

The high vitamin C content of fresh oranges accounts for much of their beneficial influence on our health, given the vital importance
of this vitamin in combating infection.8,9

They also contain beta-carotene, which is a precursor of Vitamin A. Beta carotenes are known to promote eye health, better skin and supports the immune system.

Oranges also contain bioflavonoids which are known to strengthen the walls of capillaries. These compounds act as primitive defense systems protecting them from diseases.

Many studies indicate that various bioflavonoids actively combat infectious bacteria, viruses and fungi.

One study found that orange juice taken with meal doubles the iron absorption and prevents anemia.10,11

One Orange (152g) provides the following nutrients as per RDA:

  • 6% Carbs
  • 14% Fiber
  • 2% Protein
  • 7% Vitamin A
  • 113% Vitamin C
  • 1% Vitamin E
  • 10% Thiamin
  • 4% Riboflavin
  • 5% Vitamin B6
  • 6% Folate
  • 4% Pantothenic Acid
  • 6% Calcium
  • 1% Iron
  • 4% Magnesium
  • 7% Potassium
  • 3% Copper
  • 2% Manganese12

Pears

Pears are a good source of pectin, which helps bowel function and increases
the amount of cholesterol eliminated by the body.

Supplying reasonable vitamin C, some vitamin A and E, and potassium,
they’re helpful for digestion and convalescence and are a source of easily accessible good calories.13

They contain no fat and virtually no sodium, but they do contain fruit sugar, which is easily converted into instantly usable energy.

Pears are one of the foods least likely to cause any type of allergic reaction, so they’re ideal puréed for babies and used in exclusion diets where food allergies or intolerances are suspected.

However, fresh pears do contain sugar-based alcohol called sorbitol.
While this sugar-free sweetener is tooth-friendly, in large amounts it may cause diarrhea in a small number of susceptible people.

One large pear (230g) contain the following nutrients as per RDA:

  • 12% Carbs
  • 29% Fiber
  • 2% Protein
  • 1% Vitamin A
  • 16% Vitamin C
  • 1% Vitamin E
  • 13% Vitamin K
  • 2% Thiamin
  • 3% Riboflavin
  • 3% Vitamin B6
  • 4% Folate
  • 2% Calcium
  • 2% Iron
  • 4% Magnesium
  • 3% Phosphorus
  • 8% Potassium
  • 9% Copper
  • 6% Manganese14

Blueberries

Blueberries are high in fiber, vitamin C, K and contain a high amount of antioxidants.15,16

Research from the American Chemical Society has found that blueberries may reduce the effects of dementia.17

Scientists discovered that patients who ate a cup of blueberries every day for 16 weeks showed improved memory, better intellectual performance and increased brain activity.18

Containing more antioxidants than red wine, blueberries are good for the heart and circulation.

Added to breakfast smoothies or sprinkled over your morning cereal, they are a powerful package.

One cup blueberries (148g) provide the following nutrients per RDA:

  • 7% Carbs
  • 14% Fiber
  • 2% Protein
  • 2% Vitamin A
  • 24% Vitamin C
  • 4% Vitamin E
  • 36% Vitamin K
  • 4% Thiamin
  • 4% Riboflavin
  • 3% Niacin
  • 4% Vitamin B6
  • 2% Folate
  • 2% Pantothenic Acid
  • 1% Calcium
  • 2% Iron
  • 2% Magnesium
  • 2% Phosphorus
  • 3% Potassium
  • 4% Copper
  • 2% Zinc
  • 25% Manganese19

Cranberries

The berries are high in vitamin C; but iron, vitamin A, and potassium are among their other nutritional assets.

Worldwide, scientists accept that cranberry juice both treats and prevents urinary tract infections.20
It’s not the acidity of the cranberries that does the trick, but their natural mucilage, which sticks to the walls of the bladder and its associated structures.
This mucilage prevents bacteria from lodging in the tissues and causing chronic and recurrent cystitis.

In a number of trials, cranberry juice has been used to treat urinary tract infections over prolonged periods with no marked side effects. 21

One cup Cranberries (100 g) contain the following nutrients:

  • 1% Vitamin A
  • 22% Vitamin C
  • 6% Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol)
  • 6% Vitamin K
  • 1% Thiamin
  • 1% Riboflavin
  • 1% Niacin
  • 3% Vitamin B6
  • 3% Pantothenic Acid
  • 4% Carbs
  • 18% Dietary Fibre
  • 1% Protein
  • 18% Manganese
  • 3% Copper
  • 2% Potassium22

Grapes

Grapes are a uniquely nourishing, strengthening, cleansing, and regenerative food, useful in convalescence. They are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

They are known to fight free radicals, reduces inflammation, slow down ageing and improve memory. Moreover, they can help in reducing blood sugar levels and cholesterol which makes them a good snacking option for diabetic people.23,24

Grapes are also excellent for easing the symptoms of anaemia, fatigue, and disorders such as arthritis, gout, and rheumatism, that may result from poor elimination of waste products, such as urine.

Grapes should be eaten on their own, and not as part of a meal. This is because they ferment rapidly in the stomach. Chewing grapes is also recommended to help alleviate infected gums.

Grapeseed oil, now increasingly seen on supermarket shelves, is rich in polyunsaturated fats and vitamin E. It’s also highly heat-stable, even in prolonged cooking at modest temperatures.

1 Cup (151 g) Grapes contain the following nutrients:

  • 2% Protein
  • 5% Dietary Fiber
  • 9% Carbs
  • 2% Vitamin A
  • 27% Vitamin C
  • 28% Vitamin K
  • 7% Thiamin
  • 6% Riboflavin
  • 6% Vitamin B6
  • 10% Copper
  • 5% Manganese
  • 8% Potassium
  • 2% Calcium
  • 3% Iron
  • 3% Magnesium
  • 3% Phosphorus25

Bananas

Bananas are packed with nourishment, particularly potassium, which is essential to the functioning of every single cell in our bodies. It ensures heart health and regulates blood pressure. Zinc, iron, folic acid, and calcium are other nutrients that bananas contain.26

They also contain pectin, which helps the body to eliminate toxic wastes.

Bananas contain nearly the same amount of vitamin B6 as liver. This important nutrient is chronically undersupplied in the average diet.

They are also highly beneficial to the digestive tract, soothing and helping to restore normal function; naturopaths recommend them for both constipation and diarrhoea.27

They make an ideal energy snack for sporty people, since the potassium helps to prevent cramps. Bananas should be eaten ripe, when they can be easily digested.

1 Large banana(136 g) provides the following nutrients:

  • 3% Protein
  • 14% Dietary Fiber
  • 10% Carbs
  • 2% Vitamin A
  • 20% Vitamin C
  • 28% Vitamin K
  • 3% Thiamin
  • 6% Riboflavin
  • 5% Niacin
  • 25% Vitamin B6
  • 7% Folate
  • 5% Pantothenic Acid
  • 5% Copper
  • 18% Manganese
  • 14% Potassium
  • 1% Calcium
  • 2% Iron
  • 9% Magnesium
  • 3% Phosphorus
  • 2% Selenium28

Papaya

Papaya contains the enzyme papain, which improves digestion. One fruit provides twice the vitamin C and one-third of the vitamin A you need daily.29

The medicine men of the South American Mayans used the fruit’s sticky latex, its juice, and the flesh as medicine. It’s still common today in South America to wrap meat in the leaves of the papaya before cooking to create tender and delectable dishes.

The leaves may also be used to improve wound healing and for the treatment of leg ulcers and boils in traditional medicine. Even the seeds of this remarkable fruit are useful.

The next time you eat a papaya, try saving the seeds and adding them to olive oil, vinegar, or pickles to impart a unique spicy flavour.


Papayas are particularly good for children because they make great-tasting smoothies. Halve and deseed the fruit, put the flesh into
a blender, add a small carton of yoghurt or a cup of milk, and blend until smooth.

Although tinned papaya is widely available, it’s not nearly as good for you as the fresh fruit, since most of the vitamin C and more than half the beta-carotene are unfortunately lost in processing.30,31

1 small papaya(152 g) contain the following nutrients:

  • 2% Protein
  • 11% Dietary Fiber
  • 5% Carbs
  • 33% Vitamin A
  • 157% Vitamin C
  • 6% Vitamin E
  • 5% Vitamin K
  • 3% Thiamin
  • 3% Riboflavin
  • 3% Niacin
  • 1% Vitamin B6
  • 14% Folate
  • 3% Pantothenic Acid
  • 11% Potassium
  • 4% Calcium
  • 4% Magnesium32

Mango

One mango provides over a day’s dose of vitamin C, two-thirds the recommended amount of vitamin A, nearly half the recommended
amount of vitamin E, and ,potassium and iron. It also tastes wonderful.33

Mangos originally grew in India, where their history goes back over 4000 years.Today, varieties are also grown in Australia, South Africa and Brazil.

It’s a fantastic bonus that anything tasting as good as a mango is also a source of powerful antioxidants.

The mango also has medicinal properties, and in traditional Indian medicine its antiseptic twigs are chewed to protect the teeth and gums from disease. The bark is used in treating diarrhoea, while the fruit is given for high blood pressure.34

Being high in polyphenols which acts as antioxidants, mangoes protect from free radicals and helps in fighting signs of ageing.

They are also known to improve heart health and immunity being high in several minerals necessary for immune system and supporting heart health.35

Mangoes are known to improve the quality of hair and skin and may aid digestive health being high in fiber.

One mango(207 g) provides the following nutrients:

  • 2% Protein
  • 15% Dietary Fiber
  • 12% Carbs
  • 32% Vitamin A
  • 96% Vitamin C
  • 12% Vitamin E
  • 11% Vitamin K
  • 8% Thiamin
  • 7% Riboflavin
  • 6% Niacin
  • 14% Vitamin B6
  • 7% Folate
  • 11% Copper
  • 3% Manganese
  • 9% Potassium
  • 2% Calcium
  • 1% Iron
  • 5% Magnesium
  • 2% Phosphorus36

Pomegranate

Pomegranates have been grown and eaten by humans since prehistoric times. This unique fruit has been part of ancient mythology, art, and religion from the time of the ancient Egyptians to the ancient Greeks and the Old Testament.

It gets its name from medieval French and it means, literally, “seeded apple” – an average fruit can contain up to 800 of the tiny seeds.

Although it has a long history, scientific research shows that the pomegranate is indeed a true Superfood for our modern times. Scientists have shown that pomegranates are an extraordinarily powerful and natural antioxidant.37

One small glass of pomegranate juice provides three times the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, a measure of a food’s protective qualities) of the same quantity of red wine.

What’s more, the concentration of protective bioflavonoids in the fruit is even greater than that found in grapes or green tea.

All the evidence supports the traditional belief that pomegranates are protective against heart disease, circulatory disorders, degenerative and inflammatory conditions, and even some types of cancer.38,39

There are even suggestions that the fruit has antiviral and antibacterial properties. Low in calories, fat, and sodium, pomegranates taste great when freshly juiced.

One pomegranate(282 g) contains the following:

  • 9% Protein
  • 45% Dietary Fiber
  • 18% Carbs
  • 48% Vitamin C
  • 8% Vitamin E
  • 58% Vitamin K
  • 13% Thiamin
  • 9% Riboflavin
  • 4% Niacin
  • 11% Vitamin B6
  • 27% Folate
  • 11% Pantothenic Acid
  • 22% Copper
  • 17% Manganese
  • 19% Potassium
  • 3% Calcium
  • 5% Iron
  • 7% Zinc
  • 2% Selenium
  • 8% Magnesium
  • 10% Phosphorus40

Pineapple

In Hawaii, people eat chunks of juicy pineapple as a delicious cure for digestive problems.

We now know that the fresh fruit contains an enzyme, bromelain,
which can digest many times its own weight of protein in a few
minutes. Like the enzyme papain in papaya, bromelain breaks
down only food and dead tissue, leaving the guts unassailed.

The juice of fresh pineapples is also effective folk medicine for sore throats and was once a favourite herbal remedy for diphtheria.

This reputation suggests that the pineapple contains compounds
with marked antibiotic and anti-inflammatory effects.

Some of these compounds – although not bromelain – may survive the processing that produces juice or tinned fruit. But for maximum healing potential, choose the fresh, ripe fruit.

When really ripe, the fruit loses the tartness that puts many people off pineapples.

When choosing a pineapple, avoid any with rotting leaves and bruised fruit. You can tug a leaf out of a ripe pineapple’s crown.

1 cup pomegranate(165 g) provides the following nutrients:

  • 2% Protein
  • 9% Dietary Fiber
  • 7% Carbs
  • 2% Vitamin A
  • 131% Vitamin C
  • 1% Vitamin K
  • 9% Thiamin
  • 3% Riboflavin
  • 4% Niacin
  • 7% Folate
  • 9% Vitamin B6
  • 9% Copper
  • 76% Manganese
  • 5% Potassium
  • 2% Calcium
  • 3% Iron
  • 5% Magnesium
  • 1% Phosphorus50

Watermelon

Melons are a cooling, delicious treat in hot weather: a large slice of crunchy pink watermelon – sold from roadside stands all over the Mediterranean – beats any canned fizzy drink for refreshment.

Watermelon – or a tea made by simmering its seeds in water for 30 minutes – has long been recommended in traditional medicine as a remedy for kidney and bladder problems.

All forms of melon are also mildly stimulating to the kidneys, and are gently laxative, making them useful for those with gout or constipation.53

A two-day mono-fast on melons of any kind is a delightful summer cleanout of the whole system.

Like grapes, melon of all kinds should be eaten on its own, or at least at the start of a meal, since it ferments rapidly in the stomach.

One cup diced watermelon (152 g) contains the following:

  • 2% Protein
  • 2% Dietary Fiber
  • 4% Carbs
  • 17% Vitamin A
  • 21% Vitamin C
  • 3% Thiamin
  • 2% Riboflavin
  • 3% Vitamin B6
  • 3% Pantothenic Acid
  • 3% Copper
  • 3% Manganese
  • 5% Potassium
  • 1% Calcium
  • 2% Iron
  • 4% Magnesium
  • 2% Phosphorus56

Kiwi

This little fruit with the shabby fur coat is a treasury of nutritional riches. It contains almost twice as much vitamin C as oranges, as much vitamin E as an avocado – about 3.5mg per 100g (3½oz) serving.

Kiwifruit is particularly rich in potassium, which can be in dangerously short supply in Western diets.

Deficiency can lead to high blood pressure, depression, fatigue, and poor digestion. The average kiwifruit will supply 250mg potassium,
but only 4mg sodium.

Kiwifruit is often bargainpriced in markets – choose fruit soft enough to yield to gentle pressure. It can be stored in the fridge, and should be peeled just before eating.

The nicest way to eat it is like a boiled egg – cut off the top and scoop out the wonderful pale green flesh with its small black seeds.


  • 2% Protein
  • 5% Dietary Fiber
  • 9% Carbs
  • 2% Vitamin A
  • 27% Vitamin C
  • 28% Vitamin K
  • 7% Thiamin
  • 6% Riboflavin
  • 6% Vitamin B6
  • 10% Copper
  • 5% Manganese
  • 8% Potassium
  • 2% Calcium
  • 3% Iron
  • 3% Magnesium
  • 3% Phosphorus59

Cherries

Cherries contain plenty of potassium and virtually no sodium, so they’re excellent for anyone with high blood pressure or heart disease.

They are a reasonable source of vitamin C, but they also contain significant amounts of bioflavonoids and other plant chemicals. This puts them pretty near the top of the list of protective antioxidant foods.

Their ellagic acid content adds extra value to their anti-cancer properties.

In folk medicine, cherries have long been used for the relief of arthritis and gout.

In addition, dried cherry stones make the most wonderful hot bag for
muscular pain, joint disorders, and stomach ache.

Although there is no scientific evidence for their effectiveness, the anecdotal stories are legion – and even if cherries don’t help, they can’t hurt.

They taste delicious raw, cooked, juiced, or dried. Of the sour cherries, Morello are wonderful for cooking and Acerola the richest in nutrients.

Apricots

Apricots, an early summer fruit that originated in China, are loaded with betacarotene, as their wonderful yellow-orange colour informs us – the brighter the colour, the more betacarotene a fruit contains.

Beta-carotene – a nutrient which is converted by your body in to vitamin A – is one of the most effective antioxidants around, so the
ripe, fresh fruit should be eaten whenever possible by those suffering from any infection (especially of the respiratory system) or at risk from cancer or heart disease.

A US study also found that women who had high vitamin A intakes nearly halved their chances of developing cataracts: the more fruit you eat, the better your eyes.

Dried apricots supply iron, and they actually have higher antioxidant levels than the fresh fruit. They can be thrown into stews or added to muesli.

The sulphur dioxide that preserves their colour can easily be washed off in some warm water.

Strawberries

The great Swedish botanist Linnaeus, whose special interest was in medicinal plants, recommended strawberries as a perfect cure for arthritis, gout, and rheumatism.

He spoke from personal experience: he cured himself of gout by eating almost nothing but strawberries morning and night.

This agreeable cure probably works because strawberries are admirable cleansers and purifirs of the whole system.

Strawberries also have a confimed reputation for combating high blood pressure, and they are recommended in European traditional medicine for the elimination of kidney stones.

Their high iron content makes them therapeutic for anaemia and fatigue. People with skin problems should enjoy plenty of this wonderful fruit, which cleanses and regenerates the intestinal flora.

For full therapeutic effect, strawberries should be eaten on their own, or at the start of a meal.

Raspberries

Like grapes, raspberries should be on every hospital menu. This tart, delectable fruit supplies not only a fair amount of vitamin C, but useful amounts of calcium, potassium, iron, and magnesium, which are all vital to the convalescent, as well as to those suffering
from heart problems, fatigue, or depression.

All of the minerals are well absorbed, thanks to the vitamin C. Herbalists value raspberries for their cooling effect – they are useful in feverish conditions.

Naturally astringent, raspberries can do you good the length of your digestive tract, helping to counter spongy, diseased gums, upset stomachs, and diarrhoea along the way.

Grapefruit

Grapefruit shares with other citrus fruits a high level of vitamin C and plenty of potassium.

It’s also well supplied with pectin – a substance recommended to those
suffering from circulatory or digestive problems.

In addition, grapefruit has high concentrations of bioflavonoids. These plant substances are attracting increasing medical interest.

They seem to have the ability to protect the integrity of the blood vessels, particularly the tiny capillaries, and to act against inflammation.

Both pectin and bioflavonoids are found in the white pith of grapefruit, and in the membranes dividing the sections, so eat the whole fruit rather than just the juice to ensure maximum benefit.

Lemons and Limes

Limes are the most acid of citrus fruits, containing more vitamin C than grapefruit but less than oranges and lemons.

Mostly grown for juice used as flavouring, particularly in drinks, limes have a similar chemical composition and medicinal properties to lemon juice.

They’re also rich in protective bioflavonoids, which are found mostly in the pith.
