Enter The Dragon Fruit
The pitaya commonly referred to as the dragon fruit, is an extremely popular exotic fruit often seen with pink skin and overlay ‘leaves’ like an artichoke with a delicious white center with black seeds. This sweet and sometimes crunchy fruit is full of beneficial nutrients, including antioxidants, vitamin C, polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega-3s and omega-6s), protein, calcium, iron, and lycopene. Thanks to these vitamins and other nutrients, dragon fruits are excellent for strengthening bones and teeth, promoting healthy tissue and blood formation, fast wound healing, boosting the strength of the immune system, and even lowering the risk of serious cardiovascular disorders and prostate cancer.
