It is recommended that for proper health, you eat fruit, about 400 grams every day so that you get all the nutrients and vitamins that your body needs from them. Did you know that fruit aside from having crucial nutritional value also helps in filling you up and satisfying your hunger as well as quenching your thirst? Eating apples and citrus fruits also gives you pectin which is a soluble fiber. Pectin helps in lowering cholesterol.
