As per medical research, a study came forward stating that water from raw vegetables and fruits is more bio-available than a plain cup of water.
Raw vegetables and fruits have high water content. Fruits like tomato, blueberries, oranges, peaches, pineapples, plums, and apricots contain over eighty percent water. Other fruits like melons and watermelons come with an even higher percentage of water, accounting for around ninety percent.
When it comes to vegetables, a lot of nutrient-rich vegetables such as cucumber, lettuce, zucchini, broccoli, and cabbage, etc. come with over ninety percent water.
The best thing about these water-rich vegetables and fruits is that they also contain other nutrients such as antioxidants, minerals, and fiber, which are excellent for digestion and reducing health risks in the human body. Many well known nutritionists highly recommend adding raw vegetables and fruits in your diet due to high water content.
Vegetables and fruits are preferred over a plain cup of water especially during meals because no matter how clean and filtered the water is, it does not have same digestion effects like that of water from naturally grown fruits and vegetables. Since the water present in fruits and vegetables is not processed, it aids digestive juices in quick digestion and healthy absorption of optimally digested food into walls of the stomach and ultimately, the rest of our body.
You should be somewhat careful of some food combinations though. Fruit should be eaten on its own as much as possible because it can rot in the stomach when combined with certain foods like meat for example.
