Eating at four to five servings of fruit daily will improve mood and lower your chances of developing heart disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes, according to research. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that barely 10% of Americans get enough fruit each day, or approximately 112 to 2 cups. Many of us also don't get enough of the dietary fibre, calcium, potassium, and magnesium that are abundant in fruits. Most fruits contain good levels of potassium, which supports healthy blood pressure. Fruit is a wise option for your general health and may help you lose weight since it promotes improved digestion and fills you up for less calories.
