    The important vitamin in a fruit is Vitamin C. It helps repair broken tissues, heal wounds, and keeps your teeth and gums healthy. Eating a rich diet fruit can help protect you against certain type of cancers.

    Below is an excerpt of an article that shares healthiest fruits that you can try at home:

    Apple. A low-calorie snack, high in both soluble and insoluble fiber.  Nutrition experts claim one large apple has around 130 calories, and none come from fat. Apples also have no sodium or cholesterol—nutrients many want to expressly avoid. One apple has 34 grams of carbohydrates, 25 grams of which come from the fruit’s natural sugars.

    Avocado. The most nutritious fruit in the world.  The reason, according to Health Online Zine,  is that the fruit “contains in excess of 25 essential nutrients, including vitamins A, B, C, E and K, copper, iron, phosphorus, magnesium and potassium.”.

    Banana. “In one form or another, raw or cooked, more bananas are consumed daily than perhaps any other fruit in the world.”  That’s what the book, Tropical and Subtropical Agriculture, states. Health experts claim that banana is low in protein, free of fats but high in energy. A fully ripe banana has 20 percent to 25 percent sugar. It has a significant amount of B-vitamins, especially B1 and B6. B1 is a brain tonic, whereas B6 relieves, in particular, uncomfortable symptoms of the pre-menstrual tension syndrome like irritability, headaches, tender breasts and water retention.

    Citrus fruits. “Citrus fruits contain a fair amount of folate and potassium,” Ong said. “Folate lowers homocysteine levels in the body and may reduce heart disease.  All citrus fruits contain fiber, especially in the membranes separating the sections.  For that reason, when you eat a fresh orange or grapefruit, it is always best to try to eat a bit of the white membrane around the juicy sections of the fruit.”.

    Grapefruit Besides being a good source of vitamins and minerals, it is known for its ability to aid weight loss and reduce insulin resistance. For example, in a study in 91 people, those who ate half a fresh grapefruit before meals lost 2.9 pounds (1.3 kg) more weight than those who didn’t. In the same study, the grapefruit group had a significant reduction in insulin levels and reduced insulin resistance. Also, eating grapefruit has been shown to reduce cholesterol levels and help prevent kidney stones.
