Organic Dragon Fruit Red 1pcs Malaysia
Highlights: Red dragon fruit, Pitaya roja (Selenicereus costaricensis) 火龙果 Huǒ lóng guǒ, is a delicious, tropical superfood that comes with a wealth of health benefits. Originating in Central America, it is now grown in South East Asian countries. It belongs to the cactus family, which totally makes sense because of its spiky outer layer looking like dragon scales.
Dragon fruit is a low-calorie food, rich in phytonutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and pre-biotic fibre which improves metabolic health by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut. The small black seeds are known to improve digestion and it is one of the best fruit to help ease constipation.
The main antioxidants found in red dragon fruit are betalains, similar to those found in beetroot. They prevent oxidation of LDL cholesterol by binding to them, thereby reducing its damaging potential. Dragon fruit flesh also contains hydroxycinnamates with possible anti-cancer properties and flavonoids which improve brain health and reduce risk of heart disease.
