Autumn and a time when we need to be diligent with our health as there are so many allergies, colds and flus about!
Passionfruit is rich vitamin C, or ascorbic acid and Vitamin A and low in sugar/fructose. Vitamin C helps the body gain resistance against infectious agents and pro-inflammatory free radicals like colds and flus. Vitamin A and the flavonoid antioxidant, beta carotene, are found in high concentration in passionfruit. Vitamin A has antioxidant properties, supports good eye sight, healthy mucus membranes, and healthy skin. Passionfruit also contains Iron which aids the body’s absorption of Vitamin C.
