If you’re looking to improve your overall health and promote a safe and healthy weight loss, one type of food that you must be sure not to miss out on are the super fruits that are available.

While it’s long been known that consuming plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables on your diet is a key element for health success, but now more and more evidence is coming out demonstrating that some fruits in particular tend to take your benefits up a notch.

The following super fruits and nutritional powerhouses and will provide everything that you need to see maximum success.

Let’s take a look at the top fruits that you need to know about.

Pomegranate Berry

The very first of the super fruits that you might have heard about is the pomegranate berry. This berry is going to be high in vitamin C, vitamin B5, vitamin A, and vitamin E. In addition to that, it’s also a very rich source of a number of different minerals including calcium, potassium, as well as iron, while containing a powerful dose of fiber.

Like all the other super fruits that we’re going to outline, this fruit is also very high in antioxidants so will work very well to help fend off disease and slow down the aging process.

Acai Berry

Second, one of the fruits that’s easily considered one of the top rated is the acai berry. This fruit has received a very large amount of media attention for all that it does for the body.

Not only is the acai jam packed with antioxidants but it’s also a great source of essential fatty acids as well. For this reason this is one of the most sought after fruits by many and one you should definitely be including in your plan.

Maqui Berry

Third you have the maqui berry. Like the acai berry this is another one that is very popular among many people today since it packs such a healthy punch to the diet. This berry is actually often used as a weight loss aid since it will help to support a healthy metabolism.

Just note that even if you do use this berry, or any of the others for that matter, you will not automatically lose weight rapidly just because you included it in your diet.

You still must maintain a healthy, calorie reduced diet to see weight loss take place, but the fact remains that adding it to your smart diet will further increase the speed at which you progress.

Goji Berry

Finally, the last berry that you might come across that’s also being referred to as a super fruit is the goji berry. This berry has been known to increase your longevity as the antioxidants it supplies help to reduce the aging process and fend off the damage that occurs in the body.

In addition to this, goji berries can help to stimulate the release of the human growth hormone in the body, which is a key hormone involved in helping you maintain your youthful glow.

So if aging is something you’re concerned with, you will want to be sure that you’re adding this berry to your menu plan.

There you have four of the top super fruits that you need to remember and try to eat on a regular basis. If you include these in your diet, not only will you be in better health because of it but you may just find it’s that much easier to reach and maintain your goal weight as well.

Thank you for allowing me to leave a comment on your site. You have some very useful information here. If you visit my site and leave a comment I will approve it thereby providing a link back to your site.

I am a nationally registered and state of Florida licensed dietitian. At the moment I am under contract with a local hospital providing diet recommendations to people who are over weight or have other health problems. I am also charged by hospital with educating local practitioners about the benefits of a proper diet. Doctors are not dietitians and they treat the affect not the cause(s). They really have not as yet come online with good diet recommendation(s)
