Statistics show that one of the worst affected cities in the state owing to dengue of India is Mumbai.
While several outdoor parties, shaadis and other function were cancelled or shifted to an indoor venue due to it, what is also adding fear and panic to most people is that there is no actual medical solution to the fever yet However, word has been going around the said city about how natural cures can be of help to at least help boost a person’s hemoglobin levels (which falls due to dengue fever) within a short period of time. The said natural cures are dragon fruits as well as the extract of papaya leaves.
What people do not know much about is that dragon fruits can actually help boost an individual’s hemoglobin. They also often ignore and do not realise is that the answer to getting back on their feet lies already in what they see in front of their eyes or actually have been eating it.
Dr. Nupur Krishnan, a nutritionist, says that apart from green leafy diet, people have been eating dragon fruits for a long time now. The said fruit has a lot of benefits to an individual. Firstly, the vitamin C that is naturally present in this fruit can aid in improving cellular immunity and preventing dengue hemorrhagic fever. It is also healthy for bones and boosting hemoglobin (helps prevent the dangers of free radicals) owing to its high antioxidant properties. It also makes for light consumption, so it is apt for someone suffering from fever. In addition, dragon fruit offers powerful antioxidants, phytonutrients, lycopene, high fiber, phosphorus and iron content. It can be clearly seen just by the health boosters it can offer that it can really aid in curing dengue.
