What can we say about these wondrous, fuzzy fruits? Well, let’s start with the basics, peaches are a good source of fiber, vitamin A, niacin, and potassium. They are also rich in vitamin C and phytonutrients, including phenols & flavonoids (like lutein, zeaxanthin, and B-cryptoxanthin), that act as strong antioxidants. Plus, vitamin A & C work together to promote healthy skin by regenerating skin tissue. Peaches are also great because they have a diuretic effect that helps cleanse our kidneys and bladder by helping flush out toxins. But, wait, there’s more, peaches also contain some good concentrations of selenium which helps prevent cancer and calms an upset stomach. So, we’d like to conclude with... peaches, you are such peaches!
