Dragon fruit: eliminates heavy metals and inflammation

Most illnesses start with toxins and inflammation and what is little known about this magical fruit is that it can help with serious health problems including prostrate cancer.

The dragon fruit contains a a surprising number of phytonutrients and is also a source of other nutrients like calcium that may help develop strong bones and teeth, iron that may assist in forming healthy red blood cells, and phosphorus to aid in promoting tissue and cell growth, maintenance and repair.

It is also loaded with antioxidants and is home to carotene, protein, vitamin C (said to be near 10 percent of the daily recommended value), polyunsaturated (good) fatty acids and B vitamins that may be needed for carbohydrate metabolism.In addition, this tropical fruit doesn’t contain complex carbohydrates, which may allow vitamin B1 (thiamin) along with other B vitamins in the body to break down food more easily.

It also contains a phytochemical called captin which is typically used in medicines that may help alleviate heart problems. Other known benefits of dragon fruit include boosting the immune system, promoting quicker recovery from wounds and bruises, and reducing the risk for respiratory problems.

Lycopene, responsible for the fruit’s red color, has been linked with a lower prostate cancer risk. Meanwhile, seed extracts from dragon fruit are high in polyunsaturated fats (omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids) that may help reduce triglyceride levels and lower the risk of cardiovascular disorders.

In some cases, oil derived from the seeds may serve as a mild laxative too.

Make sure to consume dragon fruit in moderation because it contains fructose, a type of sugar that may be harmful to your health if consumed in excessive amounts.

The conclusion was that exercise and a diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, especially those containing lycopene like dragon fruit, were found to be protective against the disease.


What Do Studies Show About Dragon Fruit?

Some studies have already been conducted to determine if dragon fruit plays a role in improving overall health and well-being. One example is a 2011 study from the Asian Pacific Journal of Cancer Prevention, where researchers assessed the relationship between a healthy diet containing fruits and vegetables, lifetime physical activity and oxidative DNA damage linked to prostate cancer.

Another study published in Drug Metabolism and Disposition in 2004 aimed to learn more about the capacities of tropical fruits like dragon fruit, since there is limited information surrounding them. The study yielded positive results, and the researchers discovered that tropical fruits like dragon fruit may inhibit the activity of the human cytochrome P450.23
This substance can often be seen in the liver, but may also be found in other tissues such as in the small intestine, lungs and kidneys, and mutations of this particular substance have been associated with development of congenital glaucoma.

Summary

Dragon fruit is low in calories, yet offers numerous nutrients, including vitamin C, B vitamins, phosphorus, protein, calcium, captin and antioxidants. It has been proven to help lower blood pressure levels, strengthen bones and teeth, promote healthy blood and tissue formation, strengthen the immune system, heal bruises and wounds faster, and inhibit health problems in your respiratory system.

Like other red fruits, dragon fruit contains lycopene, which may assist in reducing your risk for either or heart disease. It’s best eaten chilled, chopped into cubes and added to fruit salad or blended into a refreshing drink or smoothie. This may become your new favorite fruit, and you don’t even have to slay a dragon.
