Lychee Health Benefits

 

Lychee fights many health problems

The lychee fruit combats many health issues like viruses, microbes, and even diabetes.

Lychee is considered anti-diabetic because it helps in three ways. First, the fruit lowers blood glucose levels. Extracts from the lychee seed also helps to reduce insulin resistance. And, the fruit contains the polyphenol oligonol which aids with diabetes-related vascular problems. On top of that, the lychee fruit reduces inflammation and oxidative stress which is commonly related to diabetes. Lychee can also help prevent serious heart problems and other diseases due to their richness in polyphenols.

 

Vitamins and minerals

One cup of fresh lychee fruit is a great source of potassium, copper and vitamin B2. Lychee are also high in vitamin C. In fact, you can get the same amount of vitamin C from 10 fresh lychee as you can from a medium orange. The lychee fruit also contains niacin, riboflavin, and folate as well as potassium, phosphorus, magnesium and manganese.

 

Antioxidants

If you want to slow down your aging process, you need to have an adequate intake of antioxidants. Getting enough antioxidants will protect your body from oxidative stress and wear and tear on your organs. Lychee fruits are a great source of antioxidants, and have more than 100 percent daily value of the antioxidant vitamin C in just one serving.

 

Blood support

Out of all fruits, lychees are one of the highest in polyphenols. One of those important polyphenols is rutin, which is a bioflavonoid that strengthens blood vessels. Lychee can be very helpful in treating hemorrhoids, bruising and varicose veins. If you bruise easily, you are probably deficient in bioflavonoids and would benefit from adding lychee to your diet.
