Known as the hairy lychee, this Asian fruit has a high concentration of vitamin C to better absorb iron and copper—two minerals that help your body produce red blood cells. (And we thought it was just the sun and surf that kept islanders brimming with vitality.)
With a flavor similar to banana and a citrusy bite, this native African fruit is rich in vitamin A (beta carotene), which helps strengthen the immune system. Add to this a high concentration of vitamin E, vitamin C, and potassium, and you have a wild beauty staple.
This vitamin B3-packed moonflower helps moisturize skin, while its vitamin C bolsters the immune system. Islanders call this red fruit—powerfully packed with mutivitamins and dramatically adorned with green claws and sweet white pulp—the Queen of the Night.
Packed to the brim with potent antioxidants, the juicy seeds of the pomegranate fight free-radical damage to your cells. Pomegranates have been revered throughout history as a symbol of health and eternal beauty. We’ll always drink to that!
Place a star on each eye to experience instant relief from puffy eyes. With its waxy skin and slightly sour-yet-sweet citrus taste, star fruit is also known to cure the hangovers of rum-soaked islanders.
