According to them, jackfruit and cactus juice will be very popular in 2017 not only for their ability to make you slimmer but also to help you with digestion, lower down cholesterol levels and to help you recover from hangovers fast.
Jackfruit has been a great substitute for pork for the vegetarians, but in the next year, it will not only be in demand as a substitute, but as an excellent alternative to prevent obesity. According to Carly Tierney, personal trainer and expert nutritionist at UK gym chain DW Fitness Clubs, jackfruit has anti-inflammatory properties to aid in weight loss. The seeds are also known to be a good source of Vitamin C and anti-oxidants which are beneficial for the immune system.
