As it turns out, the science of understanding our food will never come to an end.  Food researchers have discovered an amazing bounty that surrounds us all; something they call super fruits.  These are fruits that have amazing properties of great benefit to our bodies.  Especially for those of us trying to become or stay healthy, super fruits are great foods to enjoy snacking on and help with weight loss. We’ve compiled a list of the six that we found to be most familiar, and possibly most ubiquitous, to all of us.

1)     Apples

Fiber, antioxidants, and protection from heart disease…shall we say more? Eat them almost every day and your lungs will probably be in better health than someone who doesn’t.

2)     Bananas

The king of potassium, bananas help reduce blood pressure and are a filling snack that boosts your metabolism.

3)     Grapes

The antioxidants in these tiny treats help protect heart health, and the acids in them help undo tooth discoloration.

4)     Oranges

Extremely abundant in Florida, these fruits are a great source of Vitamin C, which is great for the immune system.  In addition, oranges contain fiber, potassium, and calcium, three key nutrients for normal body function.

5)     Strawberries

The wonderful fruit of summer! Strawberries contain vitamin C and folic acid, which promotes heart health.

6)     Tomatoes (Yes, they are considered a fruit)

These red wonders contain an antioxidant that most fruits lack: lycopene.  They also provide the body with vitamin C, potassium, and fiber.
