They say that the tropical vegetables and fruits are the most nutritious food in the world because the sun shines directly on that part of the world. But that can be an over expression; yet there is some truth in it considering the fact that there are basically hundreds of antioxidant fruits and vegetables grown and produced in the tropic region. In fact with the rich flora of the tropic, it is not an exaggeration to say that one could find every antidote and cure in the tropic to every possible disease, though most of these cures are just lying around waiting to be discovered and tapped.
Now experts zero in on one of the most common antioxidant vegetables, which basically cleanses the body from toxicity—the lowly jute—which grows anywhere like grass, and thus is seldom given much importance as an antioxidant. Yet the potential effect of this grass-like vegetable is enormous. It takes only one month to grow a jute plant into full bloom and one can harvest its luscious leaves and boil those leaves. It has very high content of antioxidant Vitamins A, C, and E. It helps in staving off diseases associated with aging process. Because of Jute’s seemingly plain and unspectacular appearance, this good source of antioxidant is seldom mentioned among the most potent antioxidant fruits and vegetables.
