The fruits of the murtilla possess in their seeds a high degree of unsaturation; Significant content of linoleic acid and absence of linolenic acid. Studies indicate that this acid can increase immunity, protect against cancer and against heart disease; Help build muscle and promote fat loss. Recent research suggests that CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) can help promote healthy glucose levels and insulin metabolism.
The murtilla leaves present a great amount of polyphenolic compounds, terpenes and tannins. The former are important in dermocosmetics for their corrective and neutralizing effects of oxidative stress. Terpenes and tannins have regulatory properties of microcirculation, healing and astringent power. Researchers from the Department of Chemistry, Pharmacology and Toxicology of the University of Chile evaluated the antiinflammatory activity of murtilla leaves in mice, which were induced by inflammation. The results indicated that the murtilla has a high anti-inflammatory capacity.
Goldenberry is an excellent source of provitamin A, vitamin C and also vitamin B complex (thiamine, niacin and vitamin B12).

85% of its composition is water, so it is very refreshing and moisturizing. Its sugars are mostly fructose (fruit sugar) and, to a lesser extent, glucose and sucrose, which are rapidly assimilated into the body, are the most abundant nutrients after water.
In small quantity it has Vitamin E and Vitamin C. It is rich in fiber, that improves the intestinal transit and between its mineral content excels potassium and iron, although in a small proportion. Vitamin E possesses antioxidant action, intervenes in the stability of blood cells (red blood cells) and in fertility. Potassium is a mineral necessary for the transmission and generation of the nerve impulse and for normal muscle activity, it intervenes in the balance of water inside and outside the cell.
This fruit is one of the richest in Boron, a mineral that participates in numerous functions of the body, among them, facilitates the assimilation of calcium and magnesium, which could be a factor preventing osteoporosis.
Free radicals increase the damage caused by LDL cholesterol, leading to atherosclerosis, genetic alterations, deterioration of proteins and body fat, reduced cell functionality and increased risk of cancer. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, reducing or even avoiding some of the damage they cause in the body. The apple is antioxidant, capable of neutralizing free radicals, especially for its content of flavonoids like quercetin. Apples, along with onions, are the vegetables with the highest quercetin content. Quercetin helps prevent the deposition of cholesterol in the arteries and their narrowing. Therefore, given their composition in antioxidant substances, apples are especially recommended in diets to prevent cardiovascular risk, degenerative disease and cancer. The usual consumption of apples prevents the narrowing of the coronary arteries that favors myocardial infarctions.
The extraordinary health properties of this fruit are largely due to the synergy of all its components and not to the individual action of quercetin.
Its moderate potassium content gives it diuretic properties. However, the contribution of this mineral is restricted in case of renal insufficiency reason why the consumption of apples in these cases has to be taken into account.
It possesses organic acids, (1% to 1.5% of its weight) with antiseptic effect and regeneration of the intestinal flora, among them the most abundant is malic acid, in addition it contains citric, succinic, lactic, salicylic and oxalic. When metabolized, these organic acids have alkalinizing effect (antacid), in blood and tissues, reducing the damage caused by acidosis. Organic acids benefit the intestinal flora and avoid fermentations.
The apple is, after quince, one of the richest fruits in tannins, substances with astringent and anti-inflammatory properties, that disinflame the gastric mucosa and intestinal walls. Some of the actions of the tannins are to dry and to desinflamar the intestinal mucosa (layer that covers the interior of the digestive canal), reason why they are effective in the treatment of the diarrhea. Tannins are quickly recognized by the rough sensation they produce on the palate. Tannins brown the apple peeled and grated, giving it a dark color.
Its pectin content allows it to act indistinctly as an astringent or laxative food depending on how it is consumed. It has intestinal regulating action.
If eaten raw and with skin, it is useful to treat constipation, as it takes advantage of the insoluble fiber present in the skin, which stimulates intestinal activity. The raw apple and skin is laxative, that is, useful for treating constipation. Eating one or two apples on an empty stomach improves constipation.
It is very rich in soluble fiber (pectin), able to retain water and waste substances, which is beneficial in diarrhea treatments. It slows the intestinal transit and facilitates the elimination of toxins in the stools. If the apple is consumed peeled, grated and darkened has the opposite effect in our body, it is astringent and can be used in cases of diarrhea.
Studies in Japan show that apple pectin in patients at risk for colon cancer is a good preventive and even in people diagnosed or operated, can prevent relapses.
Consumption of 2 to 3 apples a day, reduces cholesterol, by the effect of pectin, which absorbs at the intestinal level, bile salts, which are raw material for the formation of cholesterol. It has a choleretic effect (improves production of bile in the liver). Studies conducted at the University of Toulouse, France, indicate that the apple is a choleretic, which decongests the liver, reducing the tendency to form gallstones. This property makes it a recommended food in people with cholelithiasis or in those who have already had surgery on the gallbladder. It is also recommended in cases of chronic hepatitis, fatty liver and cirrhosis of the liver.
It has a hypoglycemic effect. An important part of the apple's sugar is fructose, which needs less insulin than glucose to be metabolized, and transformed into energy. Pectin acts as a regulator of the release of sugars, allowing them to slowly pass into the blood.
Studies and scientific research published in the journal Nature, argue that the apple has anticancer properties and antioxidants. It would be explained by the combination of substances that gives this fruit the activity against cancer, and not the individual action of the same. Its anti-carcinogenic function would be due to the presence, especially in the shell, of two phytochemicals acting together.
According to scientists, regular consumption of oranges can help fight some cancers, such as lung cancer, mouth cancer, breast cancer and skin cancer. Oranges have a compound in them called D-limonene, which is also found in other citrus fruits. This component plays a very important role in preventing the types of cancers mentioned above.
Oranges play a crucial role in lowering blood pressure, because of its content of hesperidin, a compound that studies have shown that plays an important role when combined with magnesium to lower blood pressure in a person.
Orange can help us lower bad cholesterol levels in humans. The same compound of hesperidin that is in oranges that reduces the level of high blood pressure, is the same property that helps us to lower the levels of bad cholesterol in the body. In doing so, hesperidin works in conjunction with another very important orange compound called pectin. According to health experts, pectin prevents the body from absorbing large amounts of fats that contribute to dangerous levels of cholesterol.
Oranges are also known to help relieve the pain of arthritis and inflammation; Have anti-inflammatory properties and that is why they can perform this task effectively. In addition, folate, orange-colored compound, helps the health of sperm and also protects it from genetic damage.
Another health benefit is the fact that it can significantly help the stimulation and strengthening of the immune system. Oranges contain very high levels of vitamin C, which are immune system enhancers.
The last, but not the least effective, benefit for our health is the immense support they give to our cardiovascular system. Experts say that the folic acid and herperidin found in oranges helps keep our heart healthy.
