Fruits are the most natural and nutritious food available to man. Because they contain high amounts of sucrose, fructose and glucose that the body uses for energy. The energy that energizes cells to have stronger immunity. The energy that helps you to lose weight the right way. Fruits also contain a variety of vitamins, minerals and enzymes. All that creates a stronger immunity and help your body and vital functions run every single day.
Now there’s a right way and a wrong way to eat fruits. When you consume a fruit immediately after a meal. The fruit reaches your stomach and starts decomposing with food which is already in your stomach from your previous meal. Now your stomach has to produce more acids and fruits decompose quickly they become more acidic. Most of the properties and most of the nutrients and the fruit are now get destroyed.
What is the right time to eat fruits?
So, the best time to eat fruit is on an empty stomach or at least 45 minutes to an hour before your meal. So that your fruit digests and reaches your intestines by the time you eat your next meal. Keeping your stomach clean and clear to digest and produce the acids it needs for cooked non-vegetarian or vegetarian food.
The right way to eat fruit is in the whole form. When you juice fruit you take away most of the fibre, most of the vitamins, minerals and enzymes get destroyed in the juicing process. And the juice reaches your stomach too quickly because you swallow it.
Now, when you eat a whole fruit your saliva contains digestive enzymes. These digestive enzymes help to break down sucrose, glucose and fructose in the right way. Whereas if you had a juice the saliva doesn’t have time. The enzymes in the saliva don’t have time to break down the sucrose, fructose and glucose.
What if you don’t eat fruits the right way?
In many cases, people have an overload of fructose in their body and sometimes that can lead to high uric acid. So, always eat the fruit in its whole because you need the fibre. The fibre in the fruit is very very important for the human body for digestion, preventing constipation, to maintain your good and bad gut bacteria.
So the way to eat fruit is just to recap 45 minutes to an hour before your meal. It’s best eaten and best digested on an empty stomach. Fruits have detoxifying effects and detoxifying capabilities in the human body. And that can only be felt if it’s had on an empty stomach. Besides a fruit is alkaline and we want the digest in an alkaline environment.
So, it keeps your PH balance in check, but when it’s mixed with food it becomes highly acidic, and it putrefies in the stomach. That’s one of the reasons why many people bloat up or they have feelings of flatulence and indigestion. If they follow a meal immediately with a fruit. Because it decomposes it produces acid and it loses all the health benefits and nutrition that it has.
So eat fruit the right way and my last tip is to eat fruits that are local to your geography, that are local to your country, that is local to the state that you live in. Because fruits that are important, fruits that are exotic and don’t come from your country are plucked from the tree much before they are ripe.
So they don’t have complete nutrition and then they’re plucked unripened. So by the time they reach the particular market, it’s intended to be. They then spray it with chemicals and pesticides to quickly and unnaturally ripen the fruit. When You consume fruit with fewer nutrients and you consume fruit with more pesticides. A way to escape this is to stick to your local produce to stick to local fruits that grow in your country, in your state and in the right season.
