Why Pink Dragon Fruit is Your Next Beauty Secret

Author: Rhiannon Lytle | February 14, 2019

Have you been to the supermarket and walked by a weird oval-ish pink fruit with some prickly-looking things coming out of it… is this what a dragon’s egg looks like? You’ve thought about picking it up, but why? What does it even do?

Turns out, this beautiful, tropical fruit that many people think tastes similar to a kiwi, has a host of health benefits. Even better? This might just be your next best-kept beauty secret.

Pink dragon fruit

Why should you try pink dragon fruit (also known as pink pitaya)?

1. It is high in antioxidant

You may already know that free radicals are the things that cause wrinkles, can lead to cancerous cells, and generally lead to overall aging in the body. It’s a natural part of life. However, when we don’t provide the body with essential antioxidants to keep these free radicals in-check, we can see signs of aging earlier than we should. 

2. It is vitamin C-rich

Vitamin C is an antioxidant, and one that pink pitaya is naturally rich in. As you may already know, Vitamin C is essential to build collagen in the body. Adequate amounts of collagen are important for healthy hair, skin and nails.

3. It is high in fibre

Did you know that beauty starts in the gut? Proper digestion means that your body is able to absorb the nutrients from your food. It also means that you are expelling food (a.k.a., hitting the bathroom), daily to ensure that your body isn’t absorbing toxins that can leach out of undigested food particles. This is why fibre is important! Insoluble fibre helps to bulk up our stool and remove toxins from our bodies. That’s why this is also an essential part of any detox plan!

4. It helps with blood sugar balancing

This technically can go under the “high fibre” category, but is so essential that it deserves a title of its own. Also, the blood sugar balancing fibre is known as “soluble fibre”, which reduces blood sugar and insulin spikes that are associated with diabetes risk. And why does this affect your beauty routine? Well, when your blood sugar is off, it can affect our sleep… and beauty sleep is key!
