Most of the people of Pakistan welcome winter with open arms as it is a much more pleasant and bearable weather than the dreadful summer heat. A warm blanket, a cup of coffee and a handful of nuts are some of the joys of winter that we all know about. But winters are not all sunshine and rainbows: they bring many ailments like the common cold, cough, and flu with them too. Sooperchef has listed top five fruits of winter that will not only make your taste buds feel good but will also improve your immunity system and keep these illnesses at bay.

1. Dates

A personal favorite of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon Him), dates are a complete equal of diet plate which seems to be balanced by a nutritionist himself. It is loaded with fiber, lots of carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and bits of fat as well. The high fiber content is a great remedy for stomach and intestinal disorders like diarrhea, constipation and colorectal cancer. This fruit is great for bodybuilders and athletes as it is an instant energy source and beneficial for the heart as well. Dates are proven to be a great remedy for hangovers and for improving brain function.

There is no feeling like sitting in the blissful sun on a winter afternoon and eat oranges merrily, with a sprinkle of rock salt on them.

They are loaded with anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant tendencies which repel the effects of prostate cancer as well as 60 different kinds of flavonoids.
