What are fruits composed of?
Fruits are 90% water, which makes them a moisturiser par excellence. The remaining 10 percent is composed of carbohydrates (fructose), organic acids, vitamins (such as A, C, and a large part of Group B), fibre, and mineral salts. The fat and protein content is very low. As for vitamins, their absorption is greater when fruits are ingested whole, hopefully with their skin, which contributes to the formation of fibre. Vitamins A and C help us to assimilate elements such as iron, calcium and phosphorus.
It is important to consume these fruits in order to increase the presence of vitamin C and thereby strengthen the immune system. Vitamin C prevents anaemia, joint pain, irritability, and helps fight the flu virus.
Vitamin A also contributes to improving the immune system, as well as improving visual problems, helping to fight respiratory infections, promoting growth and facilitating the skin's healing processes.
