Adding more fruits to your diet helps reduce the risk of disease and improve overall health. Some of them are rich in essential nutrients and potent compounds that provide unique science-supported benefits, as shown below:


1. Pineapples: Pineapples contain manganese and calcium – both of which help build strong bones. [1] They also contain a mixture of enzymes (bromelain) that help digest food and reduce inflammation. [2]

2. Bananas: Bananas contain the L-tryptophan amino acid, which is converted into serotonin (aka., the happy chemical). According to a 2014 study, “consuming more dietary tryptophan resulted in less depressive symptoms and decreased anxiety.” [3]


3. Cherries: Some fruits – including cherries – are rich in anthocyanins, which are bioactive phytochemicals that have been shown to reduce the risk of certain types of cancer. [4]

4. Oranges: A 141-gram orange contains 63.5 mg of vitamin C (117% RDI) and high levels of a fiber known as pectin. Both of these nutrients are linked with anti-cancer effects. [5]

5. Watermelon: A watermelon is a good source of heart-friendly nutrients such as potassium, magnesium, vitamins C, B6, and A. The fruit also contains the amino acid citrulline that facilitates the production of nitric oxide – and consequently lower blood pressure. [6]

6. Lemons: Some studies show that drinking lemon water keeps you hydrated, relieves constipation, and preserves the liver’s detoxification ability. [7] Plus it’s a mild diuretic (increase urine frequency). [8]

7. Grapes: Grapes contain flavonoids that promote the production of nitric oxide – hence reducing blood clots. [9]


8. Apples: Studies show that apples reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. They help control hyperglycemia (high levels of blood sugar) thanks to their content of fructose and polyphenols that slow down the absorption of sugars. [10]

Most People Don't Have The Guts To Try This:

Lost Ways Of Survival Video

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

>> Click here to find out about them now

We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.

Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
