Nutritional benefits of dried fruit
These energy-dense fruits keep you full longer, aid heart health, improve skin, lessen joint pain, and provide plenty of fibre. Here are just some of the vitamins and minerals dried fruits provide:
Bursting with amino acids - Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, including collagen, which gives strength and elasticity to your tendons, muscles, skin and hair. There are over 500 types of amino acids and 9 essential ones, which you can get from eating a wide range of fruits and berries.
Great source of fibre - Dried fruits still have the fibrous pulp of fresh fruit. Fibre is essential for gut health, so include dried fruit in your diet to enhance your digestive system.
Full of antioxidants - Antioxidants shield your body against free radicals, which attack cells and trigger inflammation. When your cells are inflamed, it slows hair growth, causes acne, reduces blood flow and affects your liver, kidneys and heart. Dried fruit and berries calm your body by protecting it against those free radicals.
Rich in vitamin C - Vitamin C is crucial for absorbing nutrients and is an ‘ingredient’ to build collagen. It also strengthens your immune system, making you less likely to pick up coughs and colds.
