Fruits are good sources of fi­bre, vi­ta­mins, min­er­als, and an­tiox­i­dants. The fi­bre it con­tains is very im­por­tant for our di­ges­tive sys­tem as it helps to pre­vent can­cer. They are an ab­so­lutely nec­es­sary part of a healthy diet. They are an amaz­ing cat­e­gory of food, which per­fectly com­bines a sweet taste with great health ben­e­fits. As such, we of­ten over­look some fas­ci­nat­ing facts about them. Here are some ba­sic facts about fruits:

- Fruits con­sist largely of wa­ter, just like the hu­man body - Fruits are 100% bad-choles­terol free - Fruits stim­u­late the mem­ory - They con­tain lots of fi­bre - They make you feel bet­ter - They help in weight con­trol Fruits should al­ways form an es­sen­tial part of our diet be­cause their im­por­tance can­not be overem­pha­sized.
