Three Tropical Fruits with Amazing Health Benefits

Tropical fruits are not only incredibly flavorful, but they also offer multiple health benefits. And they’re a great way to perk up your taste buds up during winter and enhance springtime menus.

Coconut: When many people think coconut they think shredded coconut. But did you know that coconut water offers health benefits, too? It’s low in salt and sugar and high in potassium. And coconut milk can help soothe a sore throat and stomach ulcers. 

Mango: High in vitamins A and C, the wonderful taste and texture of a mango can enhance multiple dishes. Try this: chop a mango and add to your favorite cooked stir-fry dish right before serving. Other nutritional benefits that the mango provides include beta-carotene, omega-3 fatty acids and some B vitamins.

Papaya: This tasty tropical fruit contains calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, vitamins A and C, and more. The antioxidants in papaya may help prevent the oxidation of cholesterol, which may prevent heart attacks or strokes. And papaya contains papain, an enzyme which aids digestion.

Add these tasty treats to your menus and reap healthy rewards!
