Though fruits are most associated with warmer weather, there is an abundance of fruits that come into season during the colder months. Let’s highlight some of our favorites and their health benefits.
Citrus season is in full swing, and that means grapefruit is at the top of our winter fruit list. This tangy and juicy fruit reaches its peak season in January. Grapefruits are packed with nutrients and antioxidants from plant compounds that will boost your immunity during cold season. They are a great source of vitamin A and C which support your immune system and bone health.
ThirdLeaf NW has loaded up your deliveries with various types of pears, and we’re here to tell you why! Along with being another great source of vitamin C, pears offer potassium, vitamin K, vitamin B, magnesium, and fiber which keeps your gastrointestinal system in check as well as your blood sugar levels.
Seemingly always in season, bananas are one of the most reliable and nutritional fruits around. Bananas are known for their high potassium content, but what does this mean for your body? Potassium balances water within your cells as well as manages the effects of excess sodium content within the body.
These are only a few of the many winter fruits that will boost your immunity and provide tons of other health benefits. Try some of these or other winter fruits and let us know your favorites on our socials!
