The BEST & WORST Fruits To Eat To Support Your HEALTH! | Dr. Steven Gundry

Fruit is an important part of many people’s diet. Although fruit is not an essential part of a healthy diet, some fruits can be an important source of nutrients and polyphenols (antioxidants). However, other fruits have more in common with candy than they do with healthy plant foods. In fact, two of the most consumed fruits in the US also happen to be the two least healthy. They’re popular because they taste like juicy, crunchy candy but have been marketed as health foods.There are three main positive qualities that make certain fruits healthy:
1. Micronutrients (vitamins and minerals)
2. Antioxidants kiwis are the most nutritious fruit gram-for-gram, with 100 grams (one large kiwi) providing over 9% of your entire day’s micronutrient needs… and that’s without the skin. The skin contains even more beneficial fiber and Vitamin C (and tastes great), making kiwis far and away the leader in nutrition.

3. Fiber
And there are a couple negative qualities we should watch out for:
1. Sugar (specifically, fructose)
2. Blood sugar impact (glycemic load)Pineapples, while moderately high in sugar, are second in terms of nutrients, providing about 7% of your daily nutrient needs.Blackberriesraspberries, and strawberries are probably the most well-rounded fruits, with very low sugar and high amounts of nutrients and antioxidants.In addition to apples and pears, mangospineapplesbananasgrapes, and cherries are all fruits that are especially high in fructose sugar. The dose makes the poison, so while a little bit won’t hurt as part of a healthy low-sugar diet, it can be easy to overindulge.
While it is said that, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away,” modern apples (and pears) should be seen as occasional indulgences, not prescriptions for better health. “A kiwi a week for the health you seek,” may be a better guide.
