Create a Rainbow on Your Plate for PCOS Health Part 2

As we reported yesterday, the color of fruit or vegetables in your healthy PCOS diet is an excellent guide to the goodness you’re receiving via different vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. So try to create a rainbow on your plate.
 
Today our color guide is red, which includes strawberries, cherries, tomatoes and apples. All of them improve heart function, which can be at risk from PCOS.
 
The small but mighty strawberry, for example, is packed with vitamin A and C, as well as potassium and magnesium. Potassium plays a huge cellular role and also serves as a communicator to muscle fibers.
 
Cherries contain anthocyanins, which provide the red pigment in berries. Anthocyanins have been shown to reduce pain and heart-damaging inflammation as well as serving as potent anti-oxidants.
 
Another advantage of cherries is that they contain high levels of melatonin. Research has shown that people who have heart attacks have low melatonin levels. Besides being an anti-oxidant, melatonin has also been shown to be important for the function of the immune system, as well as helping to provide a good night’s sleep.
 
Still on a red theme, lycopene is one of nature’s most powerful anti-oxidants and it’s strongly present in tomatoes, especially when cooked.
