Starfruit heart protective

Star fruit, also called carambola, meaning food appetizer in Sanskrit, are low in calories and high in potassium, needed for a healthy cardiovascular system. Potassium is needed to balance sodium that is so prevalent in our diets. Many people benefit from extra potassium in their diets.

They are also a great source of vitamin C, a vital antioxidant that supports the immune system in wound healing and the fight against infection. Anyone with gum disease, toxicity or cardiovascular disease can benefit from increasing their vitamin C intake.

Who should eat star fruit?

  • Anyone wanting to support their immune system. The vitamin C content of these fruits has anti-inflammatory and healing effects
  • Anyone wishing to support their body’s detoxification system
  • Those with allergies or hay fever, as vitamin C has allergy reducing effects
  • Anyone with cardiovascular problems or wishing to prevent them due to the high potassium, vitamin C and fibre content of these fruits
