The autumn fruit has nothing to envy to the summer one: here are the first fruits to taste to find your good mood!
Not all autumn comes to harm: if the end of summer brings with it a breath of sadness, it is also true that this can be easily swept away by sitting at the table.
They say that the appetite comes with eating, but along with him comes a good mood: after months spent enjoying cherries, watermelons, peaches, and apricots, finding the fruits that autumn gives us is undoubtedly a way to start on the right foot and fill up with well-being and goodness.
Here then is a series of firstfruits to be enjoyed from September onwards, which will make even the most sworn enemies of the autumn season smile again.
Chestnuts, rich in minerals, carbohydrates, and regulators of the intestinal flora
Delicious and rich in minerals, from potassium to magnesium: chestnuts also contain several carbohydrates that make them particularly satiating, turning them into a real panacea in case of tiredness or anemia. They also reduce cholesterol and regulate intestinal flora, but be careful not to overdo it: their caloric intake is similar to that of bread and pasta, so much so that they can be eaten as a substitute meal.
Grapes, with theirenergizing, mineralizing, detoxifying, diuretic, and laxative properties
It is one of the season's fruit protagonists and is presented in an innumerable variety of types, ready to satisfy any palate. Starting from the Italia grape, crunchy and juicy with its delicate aroma; passing through the white pizzutello, with its typical elongated berries and firm pulp; for the Scarlotta Seedless, with a slightly acidic taste; for Autumn Royal, black, seedless and delicate; reaching the Thompson Seedless, perfect for lovers of sugary flavors. Their lowest common denominator? The energizing, mineralizing, detoxifying, diuretic, and laxative properties, which exert a unique mix of beneficial effects on the body.
Kiwi, a concentrate of vitamin C capable of fighting depressive states
Maybe not everyone knows this, but kiwifruit contains more vitamin C than an orange. This fruit of Asian origin, now widely cultivated in Italy, also has mineral salts and enzymes capable of regulating intestinal transit and is an excellent ally against high cholesterol. Recent studies have also confirmed its beneficial effects on mood, showing that kiwifruit represents a valid help to combat depressive states.
The pomegranate, an ancient fruit with antioxidant, antidiarrheal, and gastro-protective powers
The history of the pomegranate is very ancient and has its roots in Greek mythology. This superfood does not need too many presentations since its innumerable nutritional properties are now well known. Polyphenols and vitamin C's presence gives it an enormous antioxidant power, which is added to the astringent, antidiarrheal effects, and gastro-protective functions. And it doesn't stop there since pomegranate juice is even a valuable aid against diabetes and cholesterol.
Persimmons: rich in beta-carotene, vitamins, minerals, and with both laxative and diuretic effects
The fans of these sweet orange fruits every year make a real countdown of the days that separate them from the moment they return to taste them. Persimmons are very rich in beta-carotene, vitamins, and minerals: their main property is linked to improved intestinal functioning, thanks to both laxative effects (if consumed well ripe) and diuretic, perfect for helping liver purification. But beware of the high presence of sugars: in case of obesity or diabetes, it is better not to overdo it.
