( Pure Fiji Star Fruit Scrub,Bella Lucce Starfruit And Banana Body Cream, Get Fresh Starfruit products,yummy starfruit in a bowl)





Starfruit is a wonderful gift.Native to the tropical regions,this tangy fruit is packed with antioxidants,iron,fiber and many beauty benefits.Named for it's star like shape after cutting, the starfruit can really add zest to your culinary skills, by making your dish look exotic, giving you a sweet and sour smoothie,or a tropical fruit salad or chutney to be glazed over chicken,pork, or fish.For those of us who don't live in the tropics, getting starfruit poses as a challenge, but there are a few skincare products that can contain starfruit that can be delivered right to your front door.
I'm a California girl so i will start recommending a product close to home.Get Fresh skincare line is the best.Get fresh gave me my very first experience with starfruit in beauty products.Living in a desert climate, i needed products that were going to keep my skin moist without making me feel heavy and greasy. I won Get Fresh's starfruit hand cream in a raffle and have been hooked on it ever since! To my surprise, Get Fresh has a whole skin care line devoted to starfruit!! i thought it was just some hand cream, but nooo, there's body butters, scrubs, soaps and even a dry spray. http://getfresh.net/search.html?q=starfruit
For those of us who prefer tropical skincare products (not that i blame you) you can give Pure Fiji a try.Fiji has a whole array of products containing starfruit. now, I've never tried these personally, but i was told from friends that Fiji left there skin soft and glowy. So why not test it out.

before i go i think it's important to leave you with some nutritional information regarding starfruit as well as some allergen information.
StorageNon-ripe star fruit should be turned often, until they are yellow in color and ripe with light brown ribs. Store ripe star fruits at room temperature for two to three days or unwashed, and refrigerated, in a plastic bag for up to one week.PreparationStar fruits are great to eat out of hand as these tropical delights do not need to be peeled or seeded before eating. Simply wash the fruit, remove any blemished areas, cut crosswise to get the star shape, and eat!

Star fruit causes several symptoms in patients with chronic renal failure or end-stage renal disease. The symptoms vary and include insomnia, intractable hiccups, agitation, muscle weakness, confusion, consciousness disturbances of various degrees, seizures, and cardiorespiratory arrest. The various star fruit subspecies contain different toxins, including a powerful neurotoxin that is suspected to accumulate in blood, cross the blood-brain barrier in chronic renal failure patients, and eventually cause irreversible damage.Star fruit intoxication is a neglected but serious fruit intoxication frequently observed in patients with chronic renal failure. Because no effective treatment is currently available, patients— especially those who are newly diagnosed with chronic renal failure or end-stage renal disease—must be warned not to ingest star fruit, even in small amounts.
