Strawberry Profile

Strawberry Profile

 
   
Name : Strawberry  

 Strawberries are delicious and in the UK we know that it’s summer when the strawberries come out. Strawberries have a taste that varies by cultivar, and ranges from quite sweet to acidic. Strawberries have significantly high amounts of phenolic flavonoid phyto-chemicals called anthocyanins and ellagic acid. Scientific studies show that consumption of straw berries may have potential health benefits against cancer, aging, inflammation and neurological diseases. contain good amount of minerals like potassium, manganese, fluorine, copper, iron and iodine. Potassium in an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure. Manganese is used by the body as a co-factor for the super powerful antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase which helps to prevent free radical damage. You should be careful when buying strawberries as they are often sprayed quite heavily when they are being grown which is unfortunate.. Always, as ever, buy organic and wash thoroughly. It take quite allot of strawberries to make a glass of juice, and it will be high in sugar, so I only really use strawberries in smoothies. Strawberries are good for your overall health though so include some organic strawberries into you diet!

Kiwi Profile

Kiwi Profile

 
 
Name : Kiwi  

The Kiwi a comes from a large woody vine originally from China. The kiwi fruit has a thin, brown, finely hairy skin which covers an emerald green, juicy flesh, containing minute, black, edible seeds surrounding a white core. Kiwi fruit is mainly known for its vitamin C content where 100g of Kiwi fruit give around 92.7mg of the DRI (daily-recommended intake). It also contains good levels of Vitamin K, E, copper and potassium. Phytonutrients include beta-carotene, lutein and xanthin and the seeds inside kiwi fruits contain omega 3 fatty acids. Kiwis make a fantastic juice but they can be hard to juice depending on your type of juicer you use, plus the sugar content is high so i use kiwi fruit in smoothies. This way much less kiwi fruits are needed and you also get their 3g of fibre per fruit when you consume them this way. Kiwi fruit contains actinidin, a proteolytic enzyme with activity similar to papain. You must be sure that you are not allergic to actinidin as some people are, before you consume large amounts of kiwi fruit.

Apples are also a great source of soluble fibre which is helpful in keeping bowel movements regular as well as helping to remove toxins from the bowels and Apple Juices also contains malic acid, ellagic acid, malic acid, chlorogenic acid, and quercetin. Apples can be high in sugar so if you have sugar issues you should not use too much apple juice. Even people who don’t think they have blood sugar or weight issues should not be drinking gallons of apple juice per day. Also, apples are highly sprayed with many chemical pesticides so always use organic and/or wash well and peel (you will loose some of the benefits by doing this).
