4 Summer Fruits You Should Eat When Working Out

4 Summer Fruits You Should Eat When Working Out

 

Growing up in Latin America, one thing that was never missing in my family’s kitchen was fruits. Tropical fruits were always my favorite. I love their taste, color, and aroma. As a registered dietitian and active person, I value them more than ever for all their health promoting nutrients. They are chock-full of vitamins, minerals and plant antioxidants known as polyphenols. This combination of nutrients will maintain your energy and immune system in check when training.

Here are four tropical fruits you should be eating while working out.

Pineapples

This succulent fruit is the second richest source of manganese. This essential mineral helps break down protein and fats and regulates blood sugar. Adequate levels of manganese assist in keeping the immune system strong and body energized. Pineapple is also known to contain bromelain, an enzyme with anti-inflammatory properties. It is used as a treatment to reduce swelling caused by sprains and minor muscle injuries.


Guava

Guava is probably one of the most consumed fruits in Latin America. We enjoy them fresh, in smoothies, juices and as a tasty guava paste. The fruit contains two immune boosting ingredients, vitamin A, and vitamin C which have a role in keeping your immune system on track. Guavas also have kaempferol and quercetin, two polyphenols with anti-inflammatory properties that may help combat diseases.


Papaya

Papaya is well-known for containing papain, a protein digestive enzyme, which assists with digestion. Papaya is rich in vitamin A and potassium. Besides boosting your immune system, vitamin A is critical for optimum heart, lungs and kidney function. Potassium deficiency, on the other hand, may cause muscle cramps.


Mangoes

One of my favorite fruits for its versatility and refreshing flavor are mangoes. I love cooking and I use them in appetizers, main dishes, and desserts. It contains heart disease-fighting compounds including fiber and potassium. Mango is also full of plyphenols, mangiferin, and quercetin, with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

    I believe everything said made a lot of sense. However, what about this?
    suppose you wrote a catchier post title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you
    how to run your website, however suppose you added a
    post title that makes people desire more?
    I mean 4 Summer Fruits You Should Eat When Working Out is kinda
    boring. You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and see
    how they create post headlines to grab people to click.
    You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab
    people interested about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it might make your posts a
    little livelier.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and
    tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

    hello there and thank you for your information – I’ve
    certainly picked up anything new from right here. I did however expertise some technical points using this website, as I experienced to reload the web
    site a lot of times previous to I could get it to load properly.
    I had been wondering if your web hosting is OK? Not that I am complaining, but sluggish loading
    instances times will sometimes affect your placement in google
    and could damage your quality score if ads and marketing with Adwords.
    Anyway I’m adding this RSS to my e-mail and can look out
    for a lot more of your respective exciting content.

    Ensure that you update this again very soon.
