Why should you eat dragon fruit?
Dragon fruit is considered a fruit with antioxidant, antimicrobial, antidiabetic, anticancer and nutraceutical properties (nutraceuticals are foodstuffs that combine nutritional values with the characteristics of pharmaceuticals).
In addition to vitamins and minerals, dragon fruit contains two very important ingredients: lycopene and betalains. Lycopene has a strong antioxidant potential that neutralizes the effects of free radicals, slows down the aging process and cell degradation under the influence of oxidative stress and exhaustion. It protects against cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Betalains have antibacterial, antiviral and antitumor properties. They also protect against atherosclerotic diseases.
Pitaya prevents the development of cardiovascular diseases thanks to the content of polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega 3 and omega 6), which are found in dragon fruit seeds. They lower the level of triglycerides and LDL cholesterol and have a positive effect on the functioning of the heart and brain. Thanks to the fibre content, pitaya has a positive effect on the digestive tract and the digestive function of the body. It supports the body in removing harmful and toxic substances (such as heavy metals).
Consuming dragon fruit strengthens teeth and nails, supports the functioning of the retinal photoreceptors, and prevents the development of type 2 diabetes and fatty liver disease. Pitaya is an exotic fruit that appears relatively rarely on supermarket shelves. The freeze-dried dragon fruit is available all year round!
