The Evidence-Based Healing Properties of 13 Common Fruits

The Evidence-Based Healing Properties of 13 Common Fruits Produce_medicine-300x2008th October 2012
By Sayer Ji
Contributing Writer for Wake Up World
Fruit is not only enjoyable to eat — as it should be, considering the very word fruit stems from the Latin word frui,
meaning “to enjoy, use” — but it also nourishes and protects the body
with powerful, built-in medicinal activity. Fruits are by design a
“perfect food,” intended to entice animals to consume them in order to
help disseminate their seeds, for instance. This means that unlike grains, and other lectin- and anti-nutrient-rich organisms, e.g. wheat,
tomato, beans, we humans have chosen to make into our food, fruits are
less likely to come equipped with “invisible thorns,” as they benefit as
much in being eaten as we do in eating them. Also, like our now
hard-wired biological dependence on obtaining vitamin C from
external sources (unlike most animals we can not produce it from
glucose), countless millennia of fruit consumption has left our genetic
infrastructure in need of continual resupply of many of the key vitamins
and phytocompounds they contain copious quantities of.


With
this symbiotic relationship between fruit-bearing plant and
seed-disseminating animal in mind, the following healing fruit facts
won’t seem so unbelievable…
Grapefruit
– Infection: The seeds of this fruit, at a dose of 5 to 6 every 8 hours
for two weeks, have been shown effective in eradicating urinary tract
infections, including drug-resistant strains.
Pineapple
– Cancer: The enzyme bromelain, extracted from pineapple, has been
shown to be more potent that the chemotoxic agent 5-fluorouracil in
killing cancer, in the animal model. [ii]
Watermelon – Hypertension: Watermelon contains amino acids, such as L-citrulline, which help the blood vessels dilate naturally, countermanding endothelial dysfunction and reducing blood pressure. [iii] [iv]
Cherry – Inflammation/Pain:
Compounds within cherries known as anthrocyanins have been shown to be
as effective as NSAID drugs in reducing pain and inflammation. [v] [vi]
Lemon – Kidney Stones: Lemonade therapy has been shown to be a reasonable alternative for patients with kidney stones. [vii]
Papaya – Skin Ulcers:
Used in Jamaica as a traditional medicine, new research indicates that
topical application of unripe papaya fruit on chronic skin ulcers
generates a positive response rate 72% of the time. [viii]
Pomegranate – Hormones:
Pomegranate is the fruiting ovary of the pomegranate plant, contains
potent plant estrogens which do not stimulate unregulated cell
proliferation, and may function as an ideal “back up” ovary for women’s
hormone health. [ix]
Kiwifruit – Cholesterol
When used with hawthorn, kiwifruit extract was found to be superior to
simvastatin (trade name Zocor) in lowering cholesterol in mice fed a
high cholesterol diet. [x]
Cranberries – Cranberry:
The extract of this berry has been shown as effective as the drug
trimethoprim in the prevention of recurrent urinary tract infections in
older women, without increasing the risk of antibiotic
resistance/super-infection and/or fungal infection. [xi]
Elderberry – Flu:
If you are lucky enough to find elderberry on your produce stand, you
will find that it has been used as a natural anti-respiratory infection
remedy since ancient times. New research confirms that it contains
flavonoids which compare favorably with the antiviral drug Tamiflu at
binding to and preventing H1N1 infection. [xii]
Coconut – Gastric Ulcers:
both the milk and the water of the coconut have been shown to have
anti-ulcerogenic properties against NSAID drug-induced mucosal
erosion. [xiii]
Plantain – Diarrhea:
Plantain has been used to treat diarrhea by traditional cultures as a
folk medicine, but clinical research now confirms its value in the
dietary management of persistent diarrhea in hospitalized children, in
relation to diarrheal duration, weight gain and costs. [xiv]
Strawberries – Heart Disease:
Many red fruits and berries have now been shown to be valuable for
heart health, but strawberry is beginning to emerge as uniquely
beneficial to cardiovascular health. Strawberry powder has been shown to
improve the lipid profile and oxidative stress markers, and markers of
atherosclerosis, in women with metabolic
syndrome. [xv] [xvi] Strawberry extract has also been shown to relax
the lining of the blood vessels, which may reduce high blood pressure
and disburden the heart muscle from over-exertion. [xvii] Even the
strawberry leaf extract has been shown to increase coronary artery blood
flow in a manner similar to hawthorn extract. [xviii]
