Pitaya, or also known as dragon fruit, is the beautiful superfruit that is currently trending at the moment.
The pink coloured exotic fruit is easy to be a part of your daily routine. Not only that, it’s also high in magnesium, a critical mineral which experts say is responsible for over 300 enzymatic reactions and is found in all of your body tissues – predominantly in your bones, muscles, and brain.
In essence, you need it for your cells to produce energy, for many different chemical pumps to work, to stabilise membranes, and to help muscles relax.
