Figs are a powerhouse fruit when it comes to a healthy PCOS diet. They also happen to be lusciously sweet with a texture that combines the chewiness of their flesh, the smoothness of their skin and the crunchiness of their seeds.
Primarily, figs are a good source of potassium, a mineral that helps to control high blood pressure (hypertension), which is a classic, heart-damaging risk factor for those of us with PCOS.
Many people do not eat enough potassium-rich fruits and vegetables. But they do manage to consume high amounts of sodium that is frequently added as salt to processed foods. The combination of a lack of potassium and too much salt can lead to high blood pressure.
Figs are also good source of fiber, which can help weight loss for better cardiovascular health via improvement management of your PCOS symptoms.
