ATIS(SUGAR-APPLES) - Health Benefits and Nutritional Facts

ATIS, Scientific Name :  Annona squamosa

Native to tropical Americas, India and Pakistan, SUGAR APPLE (or Atis in the Philippines) is a seedy(what?!!) fruit. I am quite sure, few Filipinos know that Atis in english is Sugar Apple (this blogger included - ahh, 'yun pala ingles nun). Back in my younger days, me and my peers collect Atis seeds, not to plant them but to use them as bullets for our toy guns.

Health Benefits from ATIS
A muscle rub for Arthritis, helps regulate menstrual cycle, boosts immune system (since it is so rich in Vitamin C), reduces Asthma attack. Really now, I was not aware that this fruit, Atis, is quite potent, nutrition-wise - packs more vitamins than an apple. Doing this blog sure has its benefit.
