FRUITS- PART OF HEALTHY LIFE: A fruit is mainly the fleshy product of the tree or the other plants that carries their seeds and can be involved as food in a daily meal.
As the fruits growing in different regions contains different nutrients and micro-nutrients so they also vary in their effects on the health of humans. Tropical Fruits growing in the Tropical region are a part of Healthy and balanced diet and contains loads of micro nutrients, digestive-supporting enzymes, antioxidants, and fibers. PAPAYA: Preliminary research in animals has provided evidence for the potential contraceptive and abortifacient capability of papaya.
PINEAPPLE: It is not only a delicious fruit but also rich in many vitamins and nutrients, such as vitamin C, potassium and thiamine. POMEGRANATE: Being referred to as a ‘Gift from God’ since the biblical times, pomegranate is a fruit with numerous nutritional benefits. Here, the question arises is that when this fruits are not suitable to eat during pregnancy than what must a pregnant woman eat?
Our local or well-known exported fruits such as: Grapes, Citruses, Strawberries, Pomegranates, Kiwis, Apples and other fruits do not need much discussion – just wash’em, eat’em & enjoy’em! Noni – The natural fruit juice contains carbohydrates and dietary fiber in moderate amounts.
Keep in mind that one of our FitLife Family members, Theda Yvonne Burke is a Bioactivist, who believes otherwise.  Mrs.
Avocado – The fruit is not sweet, but rich, and distinctly yet subtly flavored with a creamy smooth texture. About 75% of an avocado’s calories come from fat, most of which is monounsaturated fat.
Dragon fruit – The mild taste of the dragon fruit (often called pitaya) flesh is often remarked upon, as it stands in stark contrast to the vibrant exterior.
Soursop –  It’s flavor has been described as a combination of strawberry and pineapple with sour citrus flavor notes contrasting with an underlying creamy flavor reminiscent of coconut or banana.
There is evidence indicating that the fruit’s extracts selectively inhibit the growth of human breast cancer cells in a mouse model, but the effect has not been studied in humans. Goji berries – This fruit is also known as  a Wolfberry.  They may be dangerous linked for health pesticides being conventionally used in commercial wolfberry cultivation to mitigate destruction of the delicate berries by insects. It was suggest that wolfberry polysaccharides have biological effects and possible health benefits, although no such claims have been supported by peer-reviewed research or approved by any regulatory agency.
A 2008 pilot study indicated that parametric data did not show significant differences between subjects receiving goji berry juice and subjects receiving a placebo.
On May 29, 2009, a class action lawsuit was filed against FreeLife in the United States District Court of Arizona.
Marketers of these products make unfounded claims that acai and its antioxidant qualities provide a variety of health benefits, none of which has scientific confirmation to date.
In late 2008, lawyers for The Oprah Winfrey Show began investigating statements from supplement manufacturers who alleged that frequent Oprah guest Dr. When three commercially available juice mixes containing unspecified percentages of acai juice were compared for in vitro antioxidant capacity against red wine, tea, six types of pure fruit juice, and pomegranate juice, the average antioxidant capacity was ranked lower than that of pomegranate juice, Concord grape juice, blueberry juice, and red wine.
FRUITS ARE SAFE, TASTY, HEALTHY AND SHOULD BE CONSUMED REGULARLY.  It is not a “MIRACLE” MEDICATION THAT TREATS CANCER OR ANY OTHER DISEASES! Clinical research requires demonstration of safety, efficacy and specificity of ill-defined natural compounds before they are applied to treat diseases in humans, it is therefore reasonable to conclude that comprehensive human studies on the majority of the exotic fruits, and among them Goji berries, Dragon fruits, Mangosteens, Acai berries, Noni fruits and others -  are at least a decade away.  All of them has not met nutritive, market or research standards to be included among true superfoods, but certainly are excellent to be enjoyed simply for their eating pleasure.
Please feel free to leave your feedback below.  If you find any proven facts that refute the research above; we would love to see it and we welcome all your comments or questions below! I like kiwis because they have a sour and sweet taste in one and they are excellent for weight loss. As the fruits are natural products and will not cause any of the harm to our body we consume fruits regularly even without knowing the harmful or beneficial effects of them. Due to which these are more preferred during pregnancy but some of these fruits can cause complications if eaten in excess during pregnancy. Laboratory studies have also shown that papaya seeds have contraceptive effects in adult male langur monkeys, and possibly in adult male humans.


He carries a notebook were all possible type of Home Remedies are listed and a true Nature lover. These macronutrients evidently reside in the fruit pulp, as Noni juice has sparse amounts of nutrient content. Although these substances have been studied for bioactivity, current research is insufficient to conclude anything about their effects on human health.
Burke works with Morinda Bioactives Queens and she credits the fruit for helping improve her painful joint problems. Specifically, after a seven-day diet rich in avocados, mild hypercholesterolemia patients showed a 17% decrease in total serum cholesterol levels.
Various parts of the plant have a history of use in folk medicine, mostly in Southeast Asia.
Since the early 21st century, high levels of insecticide residues and fungicide residues have been detected by the United States Food and Drug Administration; in some imported wolfberries and wolfberry products of Chinese origin, leading to the seizure of these products.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine goji berries are used in many formulas only together with other herbs.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) placed two goji juice distributors on notice with warning letters about marketing claims. False claims include reversal of diabetes and other chronic illnesses, as well as increasing men’s sexual virility.
The medical watchdog website Quackwatch noted that “acai juice has only middling levels of antioxidants—less than that of Concord grape, blueberry, and black cherry juices. If fruit had the capability of curing cancer than one would have to consider how much fruit would need to be ingested in order to remedy or treat a condition. There are certain fruits which are higher in pectin and fiber, natural fat burners that can speed up your metabolism. And all those small black seeds combine for a great amount of insoluble fiber that aids in digestion.
I try eating one apple every day because it’s a super fruit, low in calories and high in fiber. Strawberries promote the production of the hormones leptin and adiponectin, which are metabolic boosters and fat-burning hormones. They are one of the richest fruit sources of vitamin B6 – a single serving has over 30% of the recommended daily amount!
In Asia- mainly in India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Pakistan, Papaya is historically used as an emergency contraceptive and abortifacient. Instead of full of sugar sodas or fattening fast foods, salty cold cuts, sugar filled smoothies – you better eat fruits!
The main micronutrients of Noni pulp powder include vitamin C, niacin (vitamin B3), iron and potassium. Theda enjoys informing people that Noni is a medicinal plant and a bioactive and that supports and sustains people without harmful side effects. The avocado is very popular in vegetarian cuisine, as substitute for meats in sandwiches and salads because of its high fat content. These subjects also showed a 22% decrease in both LDL (harmful cholesterol) and triglyceride levels and 11% increase in HDL (helpful cholesterol) levels.
It is reputed to have possible anti-inflammatory properties, and may have been used to treat skin infections or wounds, dysentery or urinary tract infections. This lawsuit seeks remedies for consumers who have purchased these products over the past several years. As of April 2012, there are no scientifically controlled studies providing proof of any health benefits from consuming acai. Moreover, kiwi fruit is loaded with soluble fiber that adds bulk to the food and promotes the feeling of fullness, which is perfect for people who want to shed pounds.
Strawberries have anti-inflammatory enzymes, which help to heal internal injury or tissue damage.
Perhaps you know that vitamin B6 lowers the risk of heart disease and can help boost your immunity.


Unripe papaya is particularly dangerous to developing embryos, since its compounds trigger powerful uterine contractions. Fresh pineapple contains a protease enzyme known as bromelain which is likely to cause abortifacient effects in pregnant female.
The uterine contracting property of these fruits may cause serious hazard like abortion, when consumed in early trimesters of pregnancy. We will address the exotic brothers and sisters of fruits outlined below and their ability to possibly cure cancer!
Due to a combination of specific substances avocado is under preliminary research for potential anti-cancer activity. The fruit, seeds, and leaves have a number of herbal medicinal uses among indigenous peoples of regions where the plant is common.
Research on the chemistry of the plant is still inadequate to assure the safety or scientific certainty of any of these effects. No acai products have been evaluated (in the United States) by the FDA, and their efficacy is doubtful.
A research has found that eating a half a grapefruit before every meal can help you lose up to a pound a week!
This is also a heart-healthy and cholesterol-lowering fruit due to its high potassium content! According to a recent study at the Texas Women’s University, blueberries may help fight fat cells. If a woman is pregnant then she should not eat pineapple in excess quantity particularly during the early stages of pregnancy. These contraction-stimulating compounds found in highest concentration in pomegranate seeds, so if you are consuming the pomegranate with their seeds during the pregnancy then the chances of miscarriage become high. When Noni juice alone is analyzed and compared to pulp powder, only vitamin C is retained in an amount that is about half the content of a raw navel orange.
Extracts of avocado have been used in laboratory research to study potential use for treating hypertension and diabetes. New drugs may not be legally marketed in the United States without prior approval of the FDA.
Specifically, there is no scientific evidence that acai consumption affects body weight, promotes weight loss or has any positive health effect.
The thing is that grapefruit is high in fiber and low in calories, and there are only 37 calories in a half a grapefruit! This adverse effect on pregnancy is a little less if papaya is consumed in a moderate quantity and is fully ripe. Meat tenderizer, made from protein digesting enzymes found in pineapple and papaya can also cause the similar effects (miscarriage or stimulate birth). Sodium levels in Noni juice (about 3% of Dietary Reference Intake, DRI) are high compared to an orange, and potassium content is moderate. But dragon fruits have NOT been proven to help those with diabetes, high blood pressure, or weight problems as some websites claim. However, there is no adequate research linking the consumption of pineapple juice to miscarriage or accidental birth. Bromelain is present only in fresh pineapple and destroyed when the fruit is juiced or canned.
So the pregnant women should take care of such properties of the fruits before consuming them.
