By JONATHAN D. STEWARTAP, Associated Press Food and nutrition experts are debating which fruits are the best sources of vitamins and minerals, with many of the latest studies showing that red fruits, which have a higher percentage of iron, are especially good sources.
A recent study found that fruits with the highest vitamin A content were the most healthy.
“A lot of people don’t know about the importance of fruit,” said Dr. Roberta Haidt, a clinical professor at Harvard University.
“I’m not suggesting you eat nothing but fruits.
But if you’re going to be eating a lot of fruits, you need to be thinking about the quality of the nutrients.”
Haidth said the key to eating a healthy diet is eating enough fruits.
“If you’re a fruit eater, you have to be looking at the nutrition and the antioxidants and fiber,” she said.
“And fruits have that as well.”
Fruit is also an important part of the diet because it contains many antioxidants.
“Most of the antioxidants are found in red fruits,” Haids said.
And they are found on the skin of fruits.
A 2012 study by Haidts and her colleagues found that the antioxidant levels of red fruits were about half the levels of green fruits, and that red fruit had a higher level of carotenoids.
In addition, a 2015 study found a higher vitamin A level in red fruit.
“The levels of vitamin A in fruits have not changed in the last 20 years,” Hadept said.
She said it is important to check labels to see if a fruit has the maximum amount of vitamin C, as vitamin C helps prevent the formation of vitamin D, which can lead to a number of health problems.
Vitamin C has been linked to a lower risk of heart disease and cancer.
The American Heart Association recommends that people with low vitamin C levels eat fruits as part of their daily diet.
But it also advises people to limit the amount of fruit they eat and eat fruit with less vitamin C. Haidton said the antioxidant content of red and green fruits are closely linked, because the fruit is rich in the antioxidants.
For instance, red fruits have a high amount of anthocyanins, which are the building blocks of vitamin B12.
The vitamin B6 is also found in fruit.
The red fruit also has a lot more antioxidants than green or blue fruits, Haidst said.
When you eat fruits that are higher in antioxidants, it will help prevent your body from absorbing them, Hadep said.
It also has an antioxidant effect, because fruits are high in a variety of other compounds, including lycopene, which protects against ultraviolet rays.
“It’s the most important part,” Hidts said.
A study by the University of Arizona and the University at Albany found that a high-vitamin-C diet increased the production of beta-carotene in people who are healthy, and decreased the production in those who are ill.
The researchers said the increased beta-Carotene production was likely because people with a healthy vitamin C level were more likely to eat fruits with high levels of beta carotene.
“Vitamin C is a major factor in our skin, so people who have low vitamin levels need to have fruits that have high vitamin C,” Hidept said, adding that there are also many fruits with antioxidant levels that can help reduce the risk of skin cancer.
“But you need vitamin C to be able to absorb the nutrients in your body,” she added.
The University of California-Davis study found the consumption of vitamin-C-rich foods like strawberries and citrus fruits was related to a decrease in the risk for melanoma.
“We know that vitamin C is important for a variety that we don’t normally get from fruits,” said professor of dermatology Dr. Mark Tumlin.
“There are many different vitamin C sources, but it’s particularly important for fruits that you can get from the skin.”
Fruit-eating is not limited to the U.S. Some fruits are consumed as a way of enhancing vitamin C intake, such as blackberries, berries, plums and strawberries.
But Haidson said many fruits also contain antioxidants, such the antioxidant anthocanthins found in strawberries and plums.
“So, we think that fruit has a significant role in the vitamin C and antioxidants that are important in the diet,” she explained.
“People need to understand the role that fruits play in the overall diet, because if you don’t have fruit in your diet, you’re not going to get all of the vitamins.”
Dr. Michael Bock, an expert in nutritional science and nutrition at the University College London, said people should consider the fruits they eat a little differently than they do for other foods.
“When people eat fruits and vegetables, they’re trying to get antioxidants and they’re not getting the fruits that they should,” he said.
Fruit-eaters also need to look at what kind of fruit is appropriate for
