Hello and welcome to the nutritional world of chickoo. Sapodilla is my English name. I may be small in size but have lot of nutritional benefits. To begin with, the high fibre content in makes me an excellent laxative. Due to the tannin found in me, I am rich in antioxidant properties. Tannin have anti-inflammatory, antiviral, anti bacterial and anti parasitic effects and hence used in medicines to cure diahorrea and haemorrhoids. I have a good amount of vitamin C and Vitamin A (essential for vision).Also the minerals present in me like potassium, copper, Iron and vitamins will double up the advantage of having me. Not to forget I am an infant friendly fruit too. Kids love me too because I help them to relieve them from cold and cough. Basically adding me to your diet I have great health, skin and hair benefits too. So ladies and gentlemen do make me a part of your fruit salad, smoothies or milkshake or even sweet for that matter and get maximum benfits.
