Intro Paragraph: Are you tired of the same old fruits available in the grocery store? Then you should try Jackfruit, a mildly-sweet, exotic tropical fruit native to Southeast Asia. Loaded with health benefits, they are delicious also!
Jackfruit is a tropical fruit which has been classified as the largest in the world. They can weight up to 36 kilograms (almost 80 lbs!), and can get about 3’ wide. Well, you’ll feel larger than life when you begin to feel the health benefits of this hidden superfood.
Antioxidants—Jackfruit is an amazing source of antioxidants, especially flavonoids and phytonutrients, which help your body ward off free radicals. Free radicals are associated with the type of cellular damage that causes premature aging. In addition, neutralizing free radicals in your body has been linked to cancer. In addition, Jackfruit extracts are being researched in treating asthma.
Essential Minerals—Jackfruit is loaded with Vitamins A, E, K, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folare, Pantothenic acid, copper, manganese, and magnesium. In combination, these are all required for proper blood formation. These minerals are necessary for your body’s ability to absorb iron, thus preventing anemia. Also, they help to prevent bone loss and degenerative conditions such as osteoporosis.
Potassium—Jackfruit is an amazing source of potassium which regulates the sodium levels in your body. This is highly useful in maintaining a healthy blood pressure, or helpful in recovering after a tough workout.
Dietary Fiber—Jackfruit is loaded with fiber. When you open up the fruit the fibrous texture of the fruit is evident. Loaded with both soluble and insoluble fiber, just one serving provides your body with 25% of its daily requirements of fiber. This helps to keep your digestive system regular, while lowering your LDL “bad” cholesterol levels. This harmful cholesterol binds to the fiber and is passed benignly through your system instead of binding to the arterial walls.
Overall, Jackfruit is an amazing fruit, and it’s delicious too! So try Bee Fruity and Nutty’s Dried Jackfruit chunks to start reaping all the health benefits, while enjoying a tasty snack. Try them in trail mixes or pack them in lunch boxes—either way, you’ll love them!
