Amazing benefits of increasing your fruit intake

Okay, I understand. You really want to skip this topic because you have heard it over and over again. Your mum tells you to eat more fruits. Your doctor advises you to eat at least three fruits a day. Even your friend has said it a few times that you should keep your body healthy by eating fruits.


I’ve been where you are before. I pass by the mallams that sell delicious looking apples, pineapples, watermelons, oranges and more daily. But it never appealed to me. I just felt my diet was fine. Well, that was until I had pile. If you have never had it before, I hope you never do. If you have had it before, then you know what I’m talking about. Pile made me very uncomfortable for weeks. I would be somewhere having a good time, and then the itch just comes. It was unbearable!


I went to the doctors’ and I was told the same thing they had been telling me for years. “Tosin, eat more fruits and drink more water”. This time around, I didn’t hesitate. The first time I branched at the mallam to buy fruits, I spent close to ₦1400. Needless to say, those fruit sellers are now my best friends!

You might be wondering what fruit has to do with curing pile. Trust me, it has a lot to do with it. Let me explain to you briefly what fruit does in the body, and why you should try your possible best to eat them as much as you can.


Fruits are rich in fibre

Fibre is one of the most important components of a balanced diet. It can help prevent heart diseases, diabetes, weight gain, and some cancers. Most importantly, fibre helps improve overall digestive health which helps bowel functions. Once you have good bowel movements, it is easier for you to go to the toilet to empty the content of your stomach which helps prevent pile and other diseases. Fibre also helps in keeping you full which prevents you from eating a lot. Avocados, bananas, apples are great examples of fruits that are rich in fibre.


Fruits are low in calories

When you’re trying to lose weight, it becomes essential to watch what you eat. For many people, it’s a real task monitoring the calories and the grams. Because fruits are naturally low in calories, you can easily take charge of eating healthy by eating lots of fruits. 


Fruits are rich in vitamins and minerals

You need adequate amounts of vitamins and mineral. Vitamin A rich foods are good for keeping the eyes and skin healthy against infections. Vitamin C helps heal cuts while keeping the teeth and gums healthy. Magnesium is essential for healthy bones. Potassium helps to maintain a healthy blood pressure. Your body from the hair on your head to the toenail on your feet needs fruit one way or another.

Furthermore, antioxidants are essential in neutralizing free radicals which try to attack healthy cells.
