What are the Benefits of Dragon Fruit?
Hi friends of SlimGoumet! Maybe we are already familiar with dragon fruit, a fruit that originally comes from Mexico. However, do you know the nutritional benefits of dragon fruit?
Dragon fruit can be eaten in slices, in mixed juice, or can be made into pudding and cake. 100 grams dragon fruit contains 51 calories, 12.38 grams carbohydrate, 0.38 grams fat, 0.78 grams protein, 1.7 grams fiber, 192 mg potassium, and 0.166 grams unsaturated fat. Black seeds in dragon fruit contain a large amount of essential fatty acid.
Fiber in dragon fruit is beneficial for our digestive system as well as to stabilize blood sugar and cholesterol levels. This fruit also contains antioxidants that help make our body stay healthy and acts as an anti-aging agent by reducing the effect of free radicals. The Phytochemical Captin in dragon fruit is good for heart health. Additionally, the low calorie and high water content of dragon fruit make it a good choice for people who are on a weight loss program.
To get all the benefit from dragon fruit, SlimGourmet provides fresh dragon fruit regularly and also creates pudding, cake, salad dressing, or main course sauces using this highly nutritious
ingredient. In this week’s menu, fresh dragon fruit is a key healthy ingredient in our Mixed Fruit Salad. Go ahead and give it a try!
