It’s not news that fruit is a recommended part of a healthy diet, but we’re particularly partial to peaches! From essential nutrients to the juiciness we love, peaches provide benefits to our diets and health that no other fruit can. Here are the top reasons we love peaches for packing a healthy punch.
PACKED WITH NUTRIENTS AND ANTIOXIDANTS
The nutrients found in peaches make it a rich source of some very beneficial vitamins and minerals including Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Manganese, Potassium, and Calcium. All of these beneficial nutrients contribute to overall health by supporting the immune system, reducing inflammation, improving bone health, regulating blood sugar and promoting healthy growth and aging.
MAY HELP WITH DIGESTION and Hydration
A medium-sized peach contains about 3 grams of fiber, a nutrient that helps move food through your gut and also feeds the good bacteria to keep your digestive system healthy. The key to getting the full benefits of the fiber from peaches is to eat the whole fruit, not just drink the juice. The fruit and the skin are what pack the most fibrous punch! But since peaches are 85 to 89 percent water, they're a great way to hydrate!
