While giving myself some healing energy today, I was given an image of an angel to paint. I shall call her the 'Angel of Fruit'. Having her on the wall, will remind me to eat more fruit. So what fruit do we have at home? Bananas for potassium, green apples, and a few English plums that I like very much. 


Plums are very good for you, with ruby red skin. 

Antioxidants World's Healthiest Foods claims that plums contain phenols, which are antioxidants that have been shown to neutralize destructive oxygen radicals. These phenols have also been shown to prevent damage to fats in the brain, bloodstream and cell membranes.

The fresh version (plums) and the dried version (prunes) of the plant scientifically known as Prunus domestica have been the subject of repeated health research for their high content of unique phytonutrients called neochlorogenic and chlorogenic acid. These substances found in plum and prune are classified as phenols, and their function as antioxidants has been well-documented.

Significant Antioxidant Protection from Phenols

These damage-preventing substances are particularly effective in neutralizing a particularly destructive oxygen radical called superoxide anion radical, and they have also been shown to help prevent oxygen-based damage to fats, such as the fats that comprise a substantial portion of our brain cells or neurons, the cholesterol and triglycerides circulating in our bloodstream, or the fats that make up our cell membranes.
