As of today the winter has started. The summer offers the most fruits, but also in the winter there is enough choice. Why you should choose for seasonal fruits?

Apples contain vitamin C, but their biggest benefit is the amount of fibers and potassium. Fibers are good for your bowels and work satisfying. Potassium is good for your fluid balance and can lower your blood pressure.

Also bananas contain a lot of fibers and potassium. Bananas are, in comparison to other fruits, calorie dense and they contain relatively more sugars. That is why bananas are a good choice before working out.

Mangoes also contain more calories than other fruits, but also contain a lot of vitamin A and vitamin C. Both are antioxidants increasing your resistance.
