As we all know, fruits are very nutritious and beneficial to human health. However, if you eat too much of some kinds of fruits, they will bring serious consequences to your body. Generally speaking, there are five kinds of fruits that you should not eat too much.
First, apple: eating too much is not conducive to the health of heart and kidney.
Apple juice has an antidiarrheal effect and can cure constipation. Eating an apple after meal can also promote digestion. However, apple is rich in carbohydrates and potassium, so excessive intake of apple is not conducive to the health of heart and kidney. As a result, patients who suffer from coronary heart disease, myocardial infarction, nephritis and diabetes should not eat too much.
Second, pear: diabetic patients should not eat too much.
Pear has the effect of relieving cough and reducing phlegm. However, as pear is cold in nature, so people with stomach deficiency should not eat too much. What’s more, because pear contains high content of sugar, excessive intake will increase the blood sugar, so diabetic patients should eat less.
Third, persimmon: do not eat in an empty stomach.
Persimmon contains large amounts of vitamin A, C, and tannic acid. It is not only very nutritious, but also has a lot of medical effects, such as lowering blood pressure and stopping bleeding, clearing heat and smoothing intestines, moistening the lung and promoting the secretion of saliva or body fluid, etc. However, persimmon contains a large number of pectin, which, when meets with the gastric acid, will agglutinate into fibrous block mass, thus leading to epigastric pain and indigestion. What’s more, as pectin has an astringent effect, so it is inappropriate to eat persimmon in an empty stomach.
Fourth, pomegranate: eating too much is harmful to the teeth.
Pomegranate contains large amounts of fructose and a variety of vitamins and minerals. Pomegranate has good effect on dysentery, rectocele and pharyngitis. However, if you eat too much pomegranate, it is not good for the health of your teeth and may make you suffer from anorexia.
Fifth, chestnut: people who suffer from constipation should not eat too much.
Chestnut contains starch, protein, crude fiber and vitamins. It is very beneficial to the health of kidney, spleen, and liver. Doctors of traditional Chinese medicine regard chestnut as “kidney fruit”, which is particularly appropriate for people suffering from nephropathy. However, chestnut is difficult to be digested, so you should not eat too much each time, especially for people suffering from constipation. Otherwise, it may aggravate the symptoms.
