Ah the organic passion fruit. Such a distinctive flavour. Delicious and tangy, these little round fruits are not only distinctive in flavour but also their wonderful nutritional profile.
Due to the presence of vitamins, minerals and properties like Vitamin C, potassium, fibre and antioxidants, the organic passion fruit shares the spotlight with many another fruit when it comes to the prevention of macular degeneration, cancer as well as the promotion of heart health, digestive health, management of high blood pressure and the balance of cholesterol.
We were very interested to hear that the organic passion fruit has recently been hailed as something of a mood enhancer. It has been proposed that the somewhat sedative effect of alkaloids found in the passion fruit can have a calming effect on the nervous system, meaning they can be beneficial to those suffering from the likes of insomnia, anxiety and depression.
You can also find iron in your organic passion fruit. Iron is important particularly for those with anaemia or those running low on haemoglobin. Furthermore there are levels of Vitamin C in passion fruits. Vitamin C is not only great for the immune system but is also imperative for the absorption of iron.
Just in case you find the organic passion fruit has not ticked enough boxes already, it is worth mentioning that the delightful little fruit has also proved beneficial to those with asthma. Anti-inflammatory flavanoids, particularly found in the peel are attributed to this wonderful advantage.
