Lychee: The “Dangerous” Fruit With Amazing Health Benefits


One of the best ways to take care of your
health is through your eating habits. But as important as it is to know about the
benefits of certain foods, it’s even more so to know the risks that can be associated
to what you eat. Processed and industrialized foods are much
worse than any foods that come directly from nature, but even natural foods can have some
serious health implications. A good example of this is the lychee, a delicious
fruit with numerous health benefits. Lychees are rich in vitamins, help strengthen
your skin, hair, and nails, and also have both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Lychees can also aid you in weight loss. Plus, they contribute to the health of your
heart, regulate your intestines, improve digestion, and strengthen your immune system. Although they may be associated with all these
benefits, lychees have caused hundreds of children to die in India over the past 20
years. Both American and Indian scientists have investigated
and tried to find out what was causing the deaths, and came to the conclusion that it
was a substance called hypoglycine which keeps our body from producing sugar. In extreme cases, it can cause your blood
sugar levels to lower considerably, leading to excessive fatigue, dizziness, memory loss,
drowsiness, and even death. Since the kids were eating lots of lychees
on an empty stomach, their blood sugar levels dropped alarmingly fast, leaving them exposed
to the negative effects of the fruit. So, the best thing to do is to avoid eating
more than 300 grams of lychee a day in order to avoid these negative implications. On top of that, always wash your fruit very
well before eating it, and never do so on an empty stomach. If you experience any allergic reaction after
eating this fruit, or if you suffer from diabetes or hypoglycemia, don’t eat it at all.
