There Are Amazing Benefits Of Figs For Skin, Hair And Health
Figs contain pectin, a soluble fiber that is known to reduce cholesterol levels. The fiber in figs clears the excess cholesterol in your digestive system and carries it to the bowels to eliminate it.
Figs also contain vitamin B6 that is responsible for producing serotonin. This serotonin boosts your mood and lowers cholesterol.
Dry figs reduce the overall cholesterol as they contain omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and phytosterols that decrease the natural cholesterol synthesis in the body.
Improve Heart Health
Figs reduce the triglyceride levels in your blood and contribute to improving your heart health.
Triglycerides are fat particles in the blood that are a leading cause of heart diseases. Also, the antioxidants in figs get rid of the free radicals in the body, which block the coronary arteries and cause coronary heart disease.
Figs also contain phenols and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that decrease the risk of heart disease.
Figs Promote Hair Growth
Hair loss usually occurs due to lack of proper nourishment. Figs contain hair-friendly nutrients like magnesium, vitamin C, and vitamin E which promote hair growth. The essential nutrients present in this fruit stimulate blood circulation in the scalp to accelerate hair growth..
A study found that fig extract had an antioxidative and anti collagenase effect on wrinkled skin and reduced the percentage of wrinkle depth.
In another study, it was found that a formulation containing fig fruit extract decreased skin melanin, trans-epidermal water loss, and skin sebum significantly. It also increased skin hydration. Hence, figs could be used as a remedy for hyper pigmentation, acne, freckles, and wrinkles.
