What are the benefits of fruits, especially fruits that grow in tropical Indonesia? Fruits are generally a source of vitamins, minerals, unsaturated fats, fiber your body needs for digestion, and various other properties such as beta carotene.
Call it a typical tropical fruit, like papaya, tangerines, bananas, mangoes marionette, and avocado. Rows of this fruit contains vitamins A, B, C, as well as calcium and iron. Not only that, typical of tropical fruits that are easily found all around you this, rich in variety and nutritional properties.
Source of vitamins A, B, C, calcium, iron, fiber and treat digestive properties, as urine and antiamuba peluruh.
Source of vitamins A, B, C, calcium, iron, with properties to prevent canker sores, increases stamina, and increases the appetite.
Source of vitamins A, B, C, calcium, minerals (phosphorus and potassium), carbohydrates, by virtue overcome constipation, and fruit that are safe for consumption because of low cholesterol and fat.

A number of other fruits like pineapple, as an efficacious anti-inflammatory and mild analgesic, and heal the sprain or dislocate. While the mangosteen fruit, nutritious overcome cough, tonsillitis, hemorrhoids, and dysentery.
Typical local fruit such as sapodilla, bark, and guava become a source of minerals that contain iron. In mineral resources with the content of phosphorus can also be met from the melon, soursop, and avocado.
Avocados, other than vitamins C, A, and minerals, is also a source of unsaturated fat (the fat content as much as 50-70 percent). No saturated fat or fat the body needs essential for the development of cell membranes. Even more optimal child growth and development with an adequate intake of essential fats, including the avocado.
Unfortunately, as domestic producers of varieties of tropical fruits, fruit consumption in Indonesia is still low. Director of Directorate of Fruit Farming, Ir Winny Dian Wibawa, MSc, mention of fruit consumption in Indonesia is only 32.67 kilograms per capita (per person) within a year. Whereas the FAO standard FBB fruit consumption of a country ideally 65 kilograms per capita per year.
“The purchasing power of people who are still low into the factors causing the lack of fruit consumption in Indonesia,” said Winny, in commemoration of World Fruit and July 1.
Practically, ideally one person should consume 10 servings of fruit (see 10 pieces that are safe for consumption) of different types and colors, each day. If not used, try to at least five servings of fruits (see measure servings of fruit) every day.
If the habit of eating fruit is served, it seems all the diseases can be avoided. Although there are certain fruits that actually have an impact unhealthy for the body, such as durian cooked with alcohol content is too high.
If every day you should eat 10 servings of fruits, different kinds and colors, and then how to choose? Especially if you suffer from certain diseases, like diabetes or gastric problems (ulcer). Not all fruits are safe to eat every day, right?
Because we live in different varieties of fruit-producing country, would not be difficult to actually select it. About the price, certainly not as expensive as blueberries, for example. Options are safe to eat fruit every person, whatever his illness, also not hard to find. Price is so cheap.
Clinical nutritionist, Dr. Samuel Oetoro, SpGK, mentioning that 10 servings of fruit daily are safe to eat apples, pears, citrus, guava, grape, watermelon, cantaloupe, papaya, passion fruit, and tomatoes.
“Carrots and plantains are also safe to consume. Carambola can occasionally, but less for patients with kidney disease,” said Dr. Samuel told Compass Female fruit after the commemoration of the World in Grand Indonesia, Jakarta on Thursday (07/01/2010).
Dr. Samuel explains, some fruits are not consumed either a particular disease. Jackfruit, durian, banana, and pineapple containing high glucose to avoid diabetic. Ulcer sufferers should not eat bananas, but safe for other banana species, such as plantains. In fact, any fruit that is not healthy, said Dr. Samuel, that is ripe durian which contain high alcohol content.
Then how the measuring? Dr. Samuel explains, passion fruit such as apples or eat one serving means intact. While a serving of wine grapes measuring five points. While papaya and watermelon, a portion equal to one piece of sliced, not a single fruit.

When a stomach that is too bloated, people will associate with the consumption of too much food. And vice versa. No mistake when linking belly with diet, stomach (from the section below chest and above the hip) does have a primary function as a place of digestion and absorption of food.
Inside there are digestive organs such as stomach, stomach, duodenum, small intestine, appendix, large intestine, which is up to the main part of the human digestive system. Here also the liver, kidney, pancreas, and spleen, supporting the digestive process.
When consuming food, the digestive organs and organ supporting food to break down into substances that are needed as well as the cell body. However, the amount of intake of these substances can happen difference, whether caused by the amount of food that is too much and the process of digesting a less than optimal.
After eating foods containing sugar or carbohydrates, dihasilakn sugar in the blood. Necessarily organ pancreas to release insulin enzyme into energy required to disassemble the cell. When disassembling the blood sugar less than optimal, suppose that due to the reduced effectiveness of insulin by an enzyme in blood fats or sugars intake too much, then the residual sugar will be stored as fat in the body (visceral fat).
He distributed the abdominal cavity, between the internal organs and chest cavity. Direct effects of excess fat in the body, causing people suffer from central obesity. In women, female sex hormone (estrogen) helps the distribution of fat into the buttocks, thighs and hips, thus reducing the risk of central obesity in the productive age. Who’s in men, more fat distributed in the stomach because of different sex hormones.
When a woman enters menopause, the fat from the buttocks, thighs, and hips will move to the waist in other words more easy-going central obesity.
Unfortunately, not only looks bad when a person has central obesity.
“Obesity is also central to the cause of metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disorders,” said Dr. Ralph Girson, SpPD, Progress of the Royal Hospital, Jakarta.
Risk of Stomach Buncit
Belly bulge is not only an impact on the aesthetics of physical appearance, but also carry health risks are not trivial. Overall, it can be said accretion abdominal circumference or central obesity patients is associated with disease risk and ultimately reduce life expectancy. There is a reduction of life expectancy in patients with obesity, about seven years, even in smokers and obesity decreased life expectancy around 13 years.
However, the risk of any disease that lies behind the stomach that bulge?
Increased abdominal circumference, automatic increase in body fat tissue. This can cause ganggan insulin (insulin resistance). Obesity is leading to high free fatty acid in the blood stimulates the release of cytokines that can lower insulin sensitivity.
Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
Conditions of insulin resistance that continues with a diet high in calories, making the body try to compensate by producing extra insulin. The goal is to balance the intake (intake) calorie and stabilize blood sugar. Unfortunately, this ability is highly dependent B-cells in the pancreas. If the adaptability of cells that regulates insulin production increase is reduced, then a glucose tolerance when the body fails to be a disorder of type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Conditions of low insulin sensitivity and also caused abnormalities in the metabolism of the body, such as dyslipidemia, hypertension, atherosclerosis, and formation of pro-coagulant (blood coagulation accelerator). These are risk factors causing coronary heart disease.
