photo (9)Talking about fruits is quite an interesting topic for me… actually eating them is much better especially when they are juicy and sweet!!! Knowledge of something’s wothe makes you less likely to take for granted the thing (in this case is the fruits and vegetables).I must confess that I’m a victim of this….I wasn’t particular about fruits I only took them to balance the classes of food in my system and only when i scurvy/sore on the tongue or something of that sort (which I believe was my body’s way of saying I lacked vitamin C– my mom literally used to force me through her lamentations to take a tab of vit.C at least) buh all them research on these fruits have made me more inquisitive and more willing to put these into my daily meal menu….(at this point where I come fro we would make the exclamation- I never hespered it!-just means I didn’t expect it at all…lmao).

Focus!!!

We would look at Bananas and Cashews (nuts)

Bananas

This very yummy, really sweet fruit is rich in Vitamins (B6,B12), Natural oils, Carbohydrates, Potassium and Magnesium. This fruit softens hair, adds shine and protects hair’s elasticity. It is helps enhance skin making it glow, treats itchy skin, wrinkles and acne (rubbing the inside of a banana peel can do wonders to your skin and hair!).

It also helps cure piles and relieves constipation. If you want to add weight, bananas are good at the job but it’s also good for weight loss too.

It prevents split ends and hair breakage and helps control dandruff, repairing dry, damaged hair.
