The fruit of the ackee tree, an endemic tree in New Zealand’s north, is the most healthy, according to a study published in the American Journal of Public Health.
Researchers analysed the fruits of 11 different ackee varieties and found that ackee fruits had a lower total amount of vitamin A than the other types, which can increase the risk of vitamin deficiency.
The researchers said that because ackee berries have a high vitamin A content, they are particularly useful in reducing the risk for vitamin A deficiency, which is often caused by vitamin B12 deficiency.
This is because ackees berries contain vitamin B6, a nutrient that is essential for healthy blood cells.
Vitamin B6 is a form of vitamin B2 that is found in fruits and vegetables.
This form of B2 is important in the production of collagen, which protects the body from the damage caused by UV radiation.
Vitamins B12 and B6 are also important in vitamin A production.
The scientists found that when ackees fruit was analysed, it contained about 25% more vitamin A and less than 10% of vitamin C, which may explain why it was so well tolerated by the participants.
Researchers believe that vitamin A is essential to all human tissues, including bone and muscles, and the ackees trees, which grow in the rainforests of the north, provide many sources of this nutrient.
The findings of the study, which was conducted by the University of Auckland, have been published in a peer-reviewed journal.
Dr Sarah Nairn from the Department of Agricultural and Horticultural Sciences at the University, said: “Vitamin A is very important in our bodies, but its importance is lessened by sun exposure.
Our research indicates that ackees fruits contain much more vitamin C than the others, which might also be of benefit in lowering the risk.””
This makes the ackes fruit a great option for people who want to boost their vitamin A intake but also want to reduce their risk of skin cancer and other skin problems, such as psoriasis.”
Our research indicates that ackees fruits contain much more vitamin C than the others, which might also be of benefit in lowering the risk.
“As well as being very good sources of vitamin E, ackees is also a great source of vitamin K2, which plays a key role in the regulation of calcium metabolism.”
In the future, we hope that more research will provide further insight into the beneficial effects of ackees in helping to prevent skin cancer.
