Benefits of Fruitarian Diet

A fruitarian diet promotes health and energy. According to the Fruitarian Foundation, one can become physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually healthier.

Below are the benefits experienced in following this diet:

  • No headaches
  • Healthier digestion
  • Greater resistance to illness, pain
  • Anti-ageing
  • Disease prevention
  • Increased mental power, happiness, confidence, concentration
  • Weight loss
  • Non-constipating
  • An alkaline diet in nature
  • Healthy skin, hair, eyes, nails

Besides the above benefits, it must be noted that there is no scientific evidence that eating a fruit-only diet can cure any disease. According to scientific research eating a major fruit diet can:

  • Improve cholesterol levels, reducing the ‘bad’ cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein or LDL).
  • Reduce high triglyceride levels.

Most of the cholesterol that contributes to heart disease comes from animal products and certain non-animal processed fats. Fruits contain no cholesterol and are heart friendly.
