Why should you add red dragon fruit to your diet

Dragon fruit is a delicious and nutritious tropical treat that is perfect for snacking, adding to your favorite recipes, or simply enjoying on its own. It is a beautiful fruit with small black seeds in the flesh that grows on a cactus-like plant.

You may know it with another name like pitaya, pitahaya, strawberry pear or sangria fruit.

Dragon fruit is a source of betacyanin, vitamin C, and lycopene and it has a gently sweet, refreshing taste that pairs well with many different flavors. It is perfect for adding to smoothies or using as a healthy topping on your favorite dishes.

Studies show some potential health benefits of dragon fruit:

  • Thanks to its carotenoids and vitamin C, pitaya may help strengthen the immune system.

  • It contains Oligosaccharides which have a prebiotic effect. The dragon fruit could therefore have a beneficial effect on the digestive system by promoting good bacteria.

According to Anthony William (the “Medical Medium”) red dragon fruit is one of the healthiest fruits on the planet. 

In his book "Liver Rescue" he writes: 

Red pitaya is the best superfood to heal your liver because it helps your liver produce cells faster so regeneration of the liver can occur. It's a fountain-of-youth fruit for the liver that slows down and stops liver aging by caring for its deep inner core, which in most cases succumbs to disease if left neglected for too long.

(this has not been scientifically proven, this is for your information, not a health recommandation)

The best place to buy fresh dragon fruit

The problem with the dragon fruit you usually find in supermarkets is that it is covered with harmful chemicals and tastes bland. The reason being that it has been harvested unripe and has been stored too long before consumption.

Everytime we are asked where to buy the best dragon fruit, our answer is the same: fresh from the farm, ripe and in organic quality when possible!
