Cherries have 86% water, so they encourage fluid excretion. They are recommended for people who have kidney problems and problems with water retention in the body.
The red color of fruits and vegetables stops bacteria
Fruits and vegetables come in various colors due to the pigments they contain. Chlorophyll is a green pigment, tomato and watermelon are red due to lycopene, while corn is yellow due to xanthophyll. Blueberries are blue because of anthocyanins, carrots and apricots are orange because of beta carotene, and wild salmon meat is orange because of carotenoids (which got into salmon from algae thanks to the food chain).
The color red stops bacteria in the human body
Watermelons, strawberries, blueberries, peppers and radishes are red because of anthocyanins. Anthocyanins have 2 important functions, that is, they stimulate the production of melanin (which protects the skin from the harmful effects of external solar radiation) and oppose free radicals (thus stopping the accelerated aging of cells). Red food contains a lot of vitamins, especially A and C (which together help the regeneration of body cells and contribute to strengthening the body’s defenses).
- Tomato – contains 93% water, so it does not affect the body weight of an individual. Tomatoes have more vitamins A and C if they are more ripe. Malic (malic) and citric acid help digestion. Tomatoes contain lycopene, which is a very powerful antioxidant.
- Figs – contain a moderate amount of vitamin A, potassium, vitamins C, PP, B1 and B2, then iron, calcium and phosphorus, but also a lot of sugar (that’s why people on a diet should be careful about the amounts). Figs have a laxative effect due to their fiber content.
- Cherries – cherries are rich in anthocyanins and flavonoids that act against free radicals. They contain vitamin C and some vitamin A, calcium, potassium and iron. Cherries have 86% water, so they encourage fluid excretion. They are recommended for people who have kidney problems and problems with water retention in the body. Cherries are not prohibited for people on a diet (even though they are considered a sweet fruit). There are only 38 calories in 100 grams of cherries.
- Strawberries – contain about 90% water, vitamin C and potassium. There are 27 calories in 100 grams of strawberries. People prone to allergies should be careful because strawberries can cause hives.
- Paprika-paprika stimulates the appetite very well and is not difficult to digest. It can cause digestive problems if eaten raw. But the cooked pepper becomes light and the pepper without the skin is even easier to digest. Peppers should be eaten more often in the summer (the peppers ripen in the summer), especially red peppers, which have more vitamin C than green and yellow peppers and the same amount of vitamins B1, B2 and PP.
- Blueberries – contain a lot of vitamins A and C. Blueberries are a good choice for strengthening eyesight and alleviate circulation problems (varicose veins). They have an antibacterial effect due to anthocyanins. They are useful against inflammatory conditions of the urinary bladder and urinary channels.
- Watermelon – restores minerals to the body and refreshes. It contains a lot of vitamins A and C, sodium, and moderate amounts of sugar. An average slice of watermelon has 16 calories per 100 grams.
