Starting your Monday morning with an office delivery of fresh, handpicked fruit from Office Fruit is one of the best ways to start your work week off right. Not only does eating fruit help you think more clearly, it provides essential vitamins and minerals, and can actually help you lose weight.
Eating a wide variety of fresh fruits and berries, like apples, bananas, kiwis and blueberries is an important part of a balanced, nutritious diet. According to the Food Safety Authority of Ireland, adults need to consume 5-7 servings daily of fruits and vegetables. When you reach for one of our delicious peaches or nectarines, you’re not only getting a tasty snack, but you’re providing your body with the following health benefits:
Energising Your Brain
Natural fruit sugars are what your brain uses for fuel, according to a recent paper published by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Instead of reaching for a cup of coffee that will perk you up and then result in a caffeine crash and foggy brain later, try reaching for some of our glucose-rich strawberries or grapes for an all-day rush of energy.
Boosting Your Immune System
Fresh fruits are packed with immune-strengthening vitamin C and antioxidants to combat work-related stress throughout the week. Berries are a rich source of the immune-boosting trace mineral zinc; our farm-fresh blackberries contain .8 milligrams and our raspberries contain .5 milligrams. Keeping your immune system strong in an office environment will help your body fight off office-borne flus and colds.
Strengthening Your Heart
The dietary fibre in fresh fruit may help reduce your blood cholesterol levels, and lower your risk of cardiovascular disease, and the high potassium, content of bananas and plums has been determined in recent studies to help maintain a healthy blood pressure.
Banishing Belly Bloating
Fruit is a great alternative to high-calorie office snacks such as crisps or pastries. Reaching for a healthy serving of fresh fruit instead results in fewer calories, lowering your overall daily calorie intake. Recent studies indicate that eating fibre-rich food can reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes and obesity. Fruit is cholesterol-free, and naturally low in calories, sodium and fat. Additionally, the fibre in fruit not only helps reduce diverticulitis and constipation, but they also offer a feeling of fullness that can help you resist indulging in unhealthy snacks.
