What is Dragon Fruit?
Dried organic dragon fruit is a mildly sweet, red-skinned fruit with red flesh. Its texture is similar to that of a kiwi because it contains many small black seeds. The fruit belongs to the cactus family and is primarily cultivated in Southeast Asia. It is also known as a pitaya or pitahaya, although it is commonly referred to as “dragon fruit” in English due to its distinctive look.
Health Benefits of Organic Dragon Fruit
Antioxidant powerhouse: Dragon fruit is a treasure trove of antioxidants: the protective compounds that fight harmful free radicals. The oxidative damage caused by free radicals is associated with heart disease, stroke, and other degenerative diseases. Snacking on organic dried dragon fruit is a fantastic way to boost your antioxidant intake!
High in fiber: Dried dragon fruit contains even more fiber per serving than its fresh counterpart. The great thing about this exotic fruit is that it contains both soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber helps regulate blood sugar and keeps cholesterol levels in check. Insoluble fiber is essential for a healthy digestive system.
Mighty source of minerals: A single one-ounce serving of dried dragon fruit contains 10 percent of the recommended daily value for iron. This mineral boosts energy levels because it helps transport oxygen-rich blood cells throughout the body. Organic dragon fruit is also a good source of magnesium, which supports the brain, the heart, and bone health.
Rich in omega-3s: The tiny black seeds in the dragon fruit slices are a good source of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids. These healthy fats reduce excess inflammation in the body to help prevent blocked arteries. Research suggests that they may lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk for heart disease. Enjoy organic dragon fruit as a heart-healthy snack!
