Apricot Nutrients and Health Benefits

Apricot FruitI love eating fresh sweet apricots. Another reason I love apricots is because they are very healthy. Some people get confused between apricots and peaches. Apricots are smaller, less fuzzy and their kernels (or seeds) have a smooth shell. Peaches on the other hand are larger than apricots, and they have much fuzzier skin and their seeds have a really thick and veiny shell. In this article I’ll be talking mainly about apricots, but if you want to read about peaches, then go to this article called “Peaches Nutrients and Benefits“.

Binomial name of apricots is Prunus Armeniaca from the family of Rosaceae. In Russian language apricot is called Aбрикос, you can pronounce it like this Abreekoss, or something like that ;) Some people believe that apricots are native fruits of Armenia, because of its scientific name Prunus Armeniaca which means Armenian Plum. Apricot trees are pretty sensitive to big temperature changes, but the healthier trees should be able to withstand those temperatures. Continue reading

Cherry Nutrients and Health Benefits

Sweet Cherries

I ate some cherries recently and at the same time I wanted to know what kind of Nutrients they contained. For some reason I assumed that I already had an article about Cherries, but the only article I found is How to get Cherry stain off Naturally. I was very surprised to find out that I didn’t have an article posted yet about Cherries. Cherry fruit is pretty popular around the world and I try to make sure that I have every popular fruit and/or vegetable included in GenuineAid blog.

The family of a Cherry is called Rosaceae and the Genus is Prunus. There are lots of species of the cherry. My article is going to be about the sweet cherry also know as Wild cherry, Sweet cherry, Gean, or botanically speaking Prunus Avium. In America I never heard anyone call the sour and the sweet cherries with their different names. In Russian language we always called the hard sweet Cherry as Черешня – Chereshnya, and the soft sour Cherry is called Вишня – Veeshnya. Personally, I never liked the sour Cherries, they are more acidic which is why they are much more sour than the sweet Cherry. At the same time, I just remembered that there is one dish that I really like made with sour Cherry, in Russian it’s called Вареники – Vareniki. It’s like dumplings, only instead of meat inside of the boiled dough, people put cleaned out sour cherries without the pits (or seeds). Continue reading

Apples Nutrients and Health Benefits

Apple and Apple Flowers in a basket.I decided to write a new and updated article post for a typical apple fruit. The older article can be found here, it was called Apple Nutrients and Benefits. An Apple in Russian look like this Яблоко, and you would pronounce it like this Yabloko. Apple’s Binomial name is Malus Domestica from the family of Rosaceae. Apple trees can grow as high as 39 feet (or 12 meters). Apple’s seeds are called pips.

Apple fruit is extremely popular throughout the world. For instance in 2005 at least 55 million tonnes of apples were grown worldwide, which value is about ten billion dollars. In 2008 the top ten apple producing countries were China, USA, Iran, Turkey, Russia, Italy, India, France, Chile, and Argentina.

Some people claim that the apple’s seeds are slightly poisonous, but on the other hand many people still eat them and claim that they are very healthy instead. As far as I know don’t overdose on apple’s seeds and you should be fine, but it’s totally up to you if you want to risk eating them. After reading and listening to people’s and scientists’ reviews on fruits’ seeds I came to conclusion that most the seeds contain Vitamin B17 (also called Laetrile or Amygdaline) which is the cure and prevention of most or all cancers. At the same time it is very easy to overdose on seeds, so just estimate how many fruits you could eat at one time and that is how much seeds should be safe for you to consume. Big medicine companies and some hospitals don’t want you to know about the Vitamin B17 because you can save lots of money by curing or preventing cancer by yourself. To find out more about Vitamin B17 read my older article called One of the Best Anti-cancers – Vitamin B17.

There are researches that suggest that apples can help reduce the risk of Prostate Cancer, Colon Cancer, and Lung Cancer. At the same time apples may decrease the cholesterol levels, prevent dementia, and prevent overweight problems. The Nutrients of one medium raw apple with skin which is about 3 inches in diameter and weighs about 182 grams are: Continue reading
