Lanzones contain more than 2 g of fibers on every 100 g. This is 8% of the recommended daily dose of fibers for women and 6% for men. Fibers reduce the risk of heart diseases and help with constipation.
Riboflavin is known to us as vitamin B6. This vitamin is very important for our body because it turns carbohydrates into energy which our body uses for all kinds of activities. B6 vitamin dissolves in water and our body is unable to store it, thus consuming fruit rich in riboflavin is very important. 100 g or lanzones will provide 124 micrograms of riboflavin and this is equal to 8% of the daily recommended dose for women and men.
Antioxidants are very important part of our life because they help the body remove toxins and protect from diseases. The most important antioxidant is vitamin A. Vitamin A is important for our body because it protects the eyes from macular degeneration and other vision problems. Lanzones are rich in this vitamin and plus they contain polyphenols, a group of natural antioxidants that can prevent cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart attacks.
