Fruits like lychee are perhaps one of the most convenient health solutions for women. Along with being high on nutrients, fibres and natural juices and sugar, they are also easy to consume and can be eaten as a fruit, added to heath drinks, dehydrated or frozen and even in some exotic Asian dishes. Here is a sneak peak into why this awesome fruit works wonders for women-
Reduces bloating and constipation during pregnancy
Being natural rich in fibres, this fruit is recommended for pregnant women as it helps in stimulating the peristaltic motion of the muscles in the small intestine. As a result, gastric juices are released and food is passed without exerting much pressure on the anal area, which is one of the most common cause of haemorrhoids too. Even in general, heavier women who suffer from constipation issues can benefit with the same.
Enhances speedier recovery after STD
Whether it is a viral infection or some other infection like STD, the richness of vitamin C in Lychee is known to increase white blood cells in the body. Hence if you are suffering from low immunity, which is often a problem that underweight women face, eat more of lychee. In particular, pregnant women should consume this considering the benefits pass on to the baby too.
Reduced risk of cancer
There are chemical compounds called polyphenolic compounds and proanthocyanidins present in lychee, which are known for neutralising free radicals. Hence, they offer protection from certain types of cancer like uterine cancer. Also, the fruit is known to protect the skin from harmful UVA/ UVB rays, which also reduces risks of skin cancer.
Prevents risk of candida and Herpes
There are some viral and fungal infections that women are very prone too. Lychee is rich in proanthocyanidins and Litchitannin A2 compound, which is largely known to reduce and prevent the outbreak of the same. In particular, herpes simplex virus , candida and coxsackie virus, risks are drastically reduced here.
Being rich in minerals like potassium, lychee is known to reduce the risks of preeclampsia in women with previous history of the same. The balance of fluids through metabolic functions with potassium as the vasodilator, eases pressure on blood vessels and helps release stress too. This helps in minimising risks of preeclampsia during pregnancy.
The minerals found in lychee include copper, which is known for forming red blood cells and increase oxygenation, especially suitable for anaemic women.
