They say eating a fresh fruit a day is a great habit. It ensures good health. In an age where we are so utterly consumed in a nearly endless ruckus caused by work schedules, timelines and deadlines, and the need to do it all in a packed, limited schedule, we often end up missing our diet. Or rather, we end up compromising the one thing we mustn’t: our diets!
In that regard, a lot many around the world are constantly tweaking somethings in their eating habits, in a bid to introduce an element of health and nutrition in their everyday schedules. To many, therefore, eating a healthy diet that involves fresh fruit intake is a must. Gone are the days when an Apple salad or a Mango as a main meal or food articles such as a tropical fruit salad featuring fruits like papaya was just a fad.
The world has risen seriously toward the changing discourse surrounding food; eat what is healthy and eat the best that is possible! Fruits are naturally, therefore, big saviors in an age where junk food or should one say instant food are big hot-sellers. Now, in that regard, there arises a natural question.
Currently, which is the world’s no.1 recommended fruit? Or, in other words, which fruit is particularly the most recommended in the world?
To that end, one might be pleasantly surprised to know it’s not the usual suspects; the mangoes, apples, papayas or the bananas. It helps to know the world’s no.1 recommended fruit. It is actually blueberry.
And that said, this isn’t the popular verdict that’s making news everywhere from some celebrated chef’s kitchen or renowned nutrition blogger or some influencer or anything of those sorts.
It is believed that most noted nutritionists and health experts are currently pointing to the blueberries as the world’s no.1 recommended fruit.
“We’re committed to working with registered dietitians because they’re at the forefront of making a positive difference in the health of Americans by providing science-based dietary and lifestyle recommendations,” Kasey Cronquist, president of USHBC, said in the release. “It’s part of the mission of the USHBC to continuously investigate the role blueberries may play in promoting good health, and it’s encouraging to see that research is reflected by the health professional community.”
In addition to the above, it is also important to note that a survey based on the importance of fruits and particularly related to blueberries was published on popular website The Packer. The results of the survey carried the following information, something that’s essential to note:
88% of surveyed of dietitians said blueberries are rich in vitamins and minerals;
85% of those polled said one cup of blueberries as a good source of fiber; and
78% of those surveyed said cited plant polyphenols in blueberries.
The above told, it should not come as much of a surprise for the simple reason that blueberries aren’t the world’s no.1 recommended fruit for anything; it’s a fruit that’s considered a superfruit, truth be told.
Not only is this fruit helpful toward maintaining heart health. But it is also beneficial toward maintaining bone strength, skin health, and is known for diabetes management as well as in controlling blood pressure.
All of that said suffices to know the fact why blueberries are the world’s no.1 recommended fruit.
