Fruits are one of the best gifts presented by nature to humans. They are not only delicious in taste but they also have healing powers which protect us against many diseases. Some of the best healing fruits are given here.

Apples
Apples have been a power food since the Garden of Eden. They’re low in calories, rich in fiber, and a source of boron, a mineral your mind may require for mental alertness and your body uses to maintain sufficient levels of calcium.

Apricots
Tart yet sweet, apples are a storehouse of beta-carotene, a nutrient that helps protect against many types of cancer. Three raw apricots or ten dried halves will give you your daily quota of this nutrient.

Avocados
Here’s one creamy food that can help lower your cholesterol – by as much as 9 to 43 percent, according to one study. Avocados are also rich in potassium and magnesium, two minerals your muscles rely on.

Bananas
The banana is the world’s best natural, low-fat source of Vitamin B6, a nutrient that helps make antibodies to fight disease. Eat just one banana, and you have taken in one-third of the U.S. Recommended daily allowance of B6.

Nectarines
Bet you wouldn’t think of the nectarine when asked to name a fiber-rich fruit. Yet a single nectarine has even more fiber than a whole banana. Nectarines are also an excellent source of vitamin A and potassium.

Oranges
Sure, orange is synonymous with vitamin C. But did you know it’s also a source of calcium? A medium size orange gives you as much calcium as an ounce of Brie, though it has 30 fever calories and none of the sodium.

Peaches
Keen on peaches? Well that’s peachy keen because this source of vitamins A and C will satisfy your sweet tooth without overloading you with fat. Pick fresh peaches over canned to get the maximum fiber benefit from this fruit.

Grapefruit
This fruit is a good source of vitamin C. A medium size grapefruit contains 50 percent more vitamin C than the Recommended Dietary Allowance. Try flavoring it with cinnamon instead of sugar.

Prunes
If you’ve never eaten a prune, you’re in for a moving experience. Prunes are nature’s best-tasting laxative. They conain a great deal of fiber, making them great for lowering your blood cholesterol level as well.

Watermelon
Heaven can be had for just 152 calories a slice. But don’t dismiss watermelon as a mere taste-pleaser. The vitamin C content of this juicy melon may help protect you against cancer of the esophagus and stomach.

Strawberries
Say “fiber” and you immediately think of heavy foods such as bran, right ? Well, strawberries contain fiber too, the soluble kind that slows digestion of foods so you feel full longer. Count for them for vitamin C, too.

Honeydew Melon
Fragrant and inviting, this juicy melon packs a vitamin C wallop. You can also count on it for potassium, a mineral you need in sufficient amounts to keep your muscle from cramping. Let your sweet tooth indulge.

Pomegranates
They are very powerful anti-oxidants. They are very rich sources of vitamin C, vitamin B, calcium and phosphorus. These nutrients and other minerals present in pomegranates help in the prevention of many diseases.

    One of the best article I have read on healing fruits. I think people if they know this article by heart then there is no need to go for those drugs. These foods are the best but they are costly too. My favorite fruits in the above list is Pomegranates, Apples and Oranges.

    Some of the other healing foods which should and can be added to your daily diet are broccoli, cherries, yogurt, salmon. The other healing foods includes fish and olive oil. I think fish is one of the best diet option from pregnant women. Fish consumption is also linked with the lower rates of colon cancer. Brain health is also improved by intake of omega-3 fatty acids which are present in fish.

    This is definitely a useful list, many of us have been aware of these benefits but still take it for granted I will try not to do so from now on. Another great fruit is the soursop, one of the most amazing tropical fruits of healing power. Its benefits are insurmountable by any other.
