Dr Oz Superfruits
Dr Oz did a segment on “Superfruits” like Lychee, Guava, Persimmon, Starfruit and Asian Pears. We should be eating four servings of fruit every day, but why not try something new and exciting rather than the same old bananas and apples? Doctor Oz has mentioned the powers of fruits like cranberries, blueberries and oranges in the past, but today he branched off into more exotic Superfruits for women over 40, because these fruits are packed with antioxidants and anti-aging nutrients.
Dr Oz: Lychees Prevent Breast Cancer
Doctor Oz’s first Superfruit is the Lychee, which is a powerful cancer fighting fruit that you often find added as a flavor to your drinks. Lychees are high in Vitamin C and Dr Oz said that they help to reduce Breast Cancer growth.
Dr Oz: Guava Prevents Wrinkles
Dr Oz’s second Superfruit is the Guava, which is a tropical fruit native to Mexico that is rich in Vitamin C and prevents wrinkles. Just one cup of guava has five times the amount of Vitamin C that you get in one orange. The high level of Vitamin C makes Guava great for collagen building in your skin so that your skin remains tight and wrinkles do not form.
Dr Oz: Persimmon Prevents Heart Disease
Doctor Oz’s final Superfruit is the Persimmon, which is a fruit that is native to China. The rich color of the Persimmon is due to Polyphenols, and these help to slow down the build-up of plaque in your heart, which is why Persimmons prevent Heart Disease. Like Dr Oz said, a persimmon a day keeps the doctor away! He even served his guest a slice of Persimmon Cheesecake and Baked Persimmon Wedges!
