3. Antioxidants

Research from the Journal of King Saud University shows that star fruit contains potent antioxidants such as flavonoids, phenolic acids, saponins, and terpenoids. These compounds largely determine the taste and color of fruits and vegetables. They also help the body produce enzymes that combat disease, lowering the risk of cardiovascular disease, some cancers, and age-related degenerative diseases.
