Is there a more delicate and satisfying Spring fruit, than the fig?
Small, yet nutritionally dense, figs boast a myriad of health benefits, both for the body and the skin.
Brimming with vital minerals and vitamins including Vitamins A, B1, B2, omega fatty acids and a variety of
antioxidants, figs are nutritional powerhouses.
Their soluble fibre promotes healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels, while the insoluble fibre supports efficient digestion and bowel regularity.
Figs are a natural source of potassium which keeps fluids and minerals balanced in and around cells throughout
the body, which is essential for normal nerve, muscle and heart function.
The rich nutrients within figs boost and rejuvenate the skin’s health, while the fatty acids keep the skin hydrated
from within. Loaded with antioxidants, figs aid in removing toxins from the body to support skin health and fight conditions such as acne and psoriasis. Antioxidants are also vital for their anti-wrinkle powers.
A fantastic way to eat figs is to add them to your salads or bake with any roasts for the final 5 minutes of cooking
Sweet, delicious and healthy, figs are a perfect addition to your diet.
