Five fruits recommended during summer to gain an enviable silhouette
Whether you eat them as they are, in a fruit salad, or in a smoothie, juice or even home-made ice cream, these fruits are the perfect dessert for an enviable silhouette!
Juicy and aromatic peaches evoke the perfect summer ambiance. Peaches are tastiest in June and July and are perfect for hot summer days. One peach is enough to cover daily vitamin C needs. Although they are three quarters water, this fruit contains no less than 10 vitamins, C, E and K, and 6 other types of vitamin B (thiamine, riboflavin, vitamin B6, niacin, pantothenic acid, folic acid).
With just 60 calories, an average peach contains more than 20 micronutrients, including fibre, vitamins and antioxidants, with anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory effects.
Mango contains over 20 vitamins and minerals with a wealth of health benefits.
Only a portion of mango provides the daily dose of vitamin C, which strengthens the immune system, maintains the health of gums and teeth and helps stimulate collagen production. The mango fruit is an excellent source of fibre, and helps to maintain a low glucose level and to induce the feeling of satiety.

The presence of anthocyanin – which gives them their red colour – makes them not only beautiful but also adds to their health benefits. Studies suggest that anthocyanin can be helpful in reducing pain and inflammation.
Melons are also one of the star fruits of the season, with many benefits for the body, the most important being its moisturizing effect. Good for quenching thirst, hypo caloric and very diuretic, melon occupies a special place in the diet of those that want to shape their silhouette. A portion of melon has only 50 calories!

With a proportion of 88% water and rich in potassium (300 mg / 100 g), the fruit has a strong diuretic capacity that recommends it in the fight against water retention. At the same time it favours the elimination of toxins and stimulates the kidney system. Enjoy the delicious flavour of melon in fruit salads or smoothies!
