Ever hear the saying “You are what you eat”? Well, in some ways it’s true. One of the best sources of preventative medicine is the food that you put into your body. Not only can you avoid unhealthy foods, but you can target certain ailments with specified diets. Fruit is one example of food with many different health benefits. Each fruit specializes in different nutritional value and effects on your body.
This has been hanging in our office for some time, so I thought I’d share with those who haven’t yet been in our clinic yet. Listed below are some unique ways that each fruit provides benefits to your body, mind, and overall wellness. Good info to store away for next time you’re grocery shopping!
