Aside from being delicious and a staple of Summer, peaches have a surprising amount of health benefits.
🍑 Low in Calories - A medium peach comes in right around 58 calories.
🍑 Digestion - That same medium peach will also provide 10% of your daily fiber you need. It can also feed the good bacteria in your gut as it contains prebiotics.
🍑 Immune System - 15% of your daily vitamin C can be found in a peach as well as 10% of your vitamin A. These both help produce immune cells and build strong barriers against germs. Peaches also have natural antimicrobial properties.
🍑 Skin Health - Beta carotene along with the previously mentioned vitamin C and A can help protect skin from sun damage and shift your skin tone to a warm, natural glow.
🍑 Eye Health - Two antioxidants found in peaches - lutein and zeaxanthin - can help protect your retina and lenses and have been shown to reduce the risk of macular degeneration and cataracts.
