Surprising Benefits Of Tropical Fruits

Surprising Benefits Of Tropical Fruits

If you’re a fruit lover like me, you know how refreshing it is to bite into a ripe piece of fruit.  Personally, I like to start my mornings by snacking on a tropical fruit, like an orange or a banana, followed by a big glass of ice water.  Not only is fruit delicious, but including a piece of fruit in your breakfast is a great way to kickstart your metabolism and fuel your body for the long day ahead.  Here are just a few tropical fruits with surprising benefits, and why you should be including them in your daily diet!


Pineapple is one of my favorite fruits, and not just because it tastes amazing.  One cup of pineapple contains over 100 percent of your daily vitamin C requirement, as well as B vitamins, dietary fiber, and manganese.  Pineapples also have anti-inflammatory properties that aid in reducing inflammation associated with arthritis, making it a great fruit for people who struggle with these issues.  Like many other tropical fruits, pineapples can also be used topically as an ingredient in age-fighting face masks, since pineapple contains antioxidants that fight skin-damaging free radicals. 


While some people might argue that avocados are actually vegetables, they are in fact tropical fruits.  Another misconception is that avocados should be avoided because they are high in fat, but what many people don’t realize is that avocados are high in monounsaturated fat, which is classified as a “healthy” fat.  Avocados have become commonplace in many people’s diets because of this, and the fruit can be found on the menu at any health retreat on the Gold Coast.  Avocados contain more than 40 percent of your daily dietary fiber requirements, and also have high levels of copper, potassium, and vitamins C, B, K, and E. 


Guavas are often thought of as a little more “exotic” than other tropical fruits, and they’re sometimes difficult to find in the grocery store.  However, guavas are delicious fruits that everyone should try to include more in their diets.  Guavas contain amazing skin benefits, and can help treat dark circles, splotchiness, and skin redness.  Guavas also contain notable amounts of vitamins A, C and B6, making it a worthy fruit to include in your daily diet.  Guavas are also popular components in smoothie bowls, the latest health craze that has many fruit lovers buzzing with excitement.

Passion Fruit

Passion Fruit is another mysterious fruit that seems to be growing in popularity thanks to the smoothie bowl craze.  When eaten alone, Passion Fruit is quite tart, which is why it is more commonly paired with other fruits.  One of passion fruit’s biggest superpowers is that it boosts immunity, due to its heavy presence of vitamin C.  Passion Fruit can also be linked to eye health, since the fruit is rich in vitamin A.  This can also help reduce wrinkles and keep skin hydrated and healthy!  If you’re someone who likes to take special care of your skin, try adding passion fruit to your diet.
