Dragon fruit contains several types of antioxidants.
These are compounds that protect cells from unstable molecules called free radicals, which are linked to chronic disease risk and aging (1).
These are some of the main antioxidants contained in the pulp (2):
- Betalains: These deep red pigments have been shown to protect LDL cholesterol from becoming oxidised or damaged (3).
- Hydroxycinnamates: This group of compounds has demonstrated anti-cancer activity in test-tube and animal studies (4).
- Flavonoids: This large, diverse group of antioxidants is linked to better brain health and a reduced risk of heart disease (5, 6, 7).
One study compared the antioxidant properties of 17 tropical fruits and berries.
Animal studies suggest that dragon fruit may provide benefits for a variety of health conditions.
Many of these are likely due to the high amount of vitamin C, fiber and antioxidants.
In one study, mice were fed a high-fat diet. Those also given an extract of the fruit gained less weight and had reductions in liver fat, insulin resistance and inflammation, which were attributed in part to beneficial changes in gut bacteria (12).
This fruit may improve certain features of metabolic syndrome, a precursor to type 2 diabetes. However, not all effects may be favorable.
In a study of mice fed a high-fat, high-carb diet, the group that received dragon fruit juice had better blood sugar responses and reductions in some liver enzyme markers, while another liver enzyme marker significantly increased (13).
In another study, diabetic rats treated with an extract from the fruit had a 35% reduction in malondialdehyde, a marker of free-radical damage. They also had less arterial stiffness, compared to the control group (14).
