Lychees are a superfruit that are revered around the world for their delicious flavor and their numerous health promoting properties. They are a rich source of vitamin C and B-complex which help to boost the immune system, protect against inflammation, and aid the body in metabolizing carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.
Lychees contain a compound called oligonol which has powerful anti-viral properties and are highly beneficial for those suffering with colds, flu, fever, swollen glands, or sore throat. Lychees have the reputation of being able to help the most stubborn of coughs and provide significant respiratory relief from congestion and chronic coughs.
They also contains flavonoids which can help to prevent the growth of cancer cells as well as reduce the size of tumors. Lychees are packed with antioxidants that are known to help reduce weight, improve circulation, and protect the body from aging and disease. Lychees also contain unique compounds that help to eliminate candida.
They are a good source of copper, iron, zinc, selenium, and potassium which can help to nourish the blood and increase energy levels. Lychees have a rough raspberry colored skin that can be easily peeled off to expose the juicy grape like fruit inside. Inside the juicy flesh is a shiny brown seed that should be discarded. The fruit is sweet and refreshing and is thoroughly enjoyed by children and adults alike.
Fresh lychees are often found in the supermarket between July-October, but the fruit can also be found anytime of the year in the form of juices, jams, jellies, and sorbet. Dried or frozen lychee can also be found in speciality markets while healing lychee fruit extract can be found in capsule, tincture, tea, and liquid form online or at your local health food store.
