Peach Health Benefits

Eating peach fruit can lower the risk of many common cancers. Studies prove that eating peaches prevents the risk of breast cancer compared to individuals who do not frequently eat peach fruit. A high in water-soluble fiber such as peaches, can decrease risks heart attacks. Also fruit may lower the risk of type 2 diabetes.

  • Vitamin B
  • Vitamin C
  • Calcium
  • Iron
  • Phosphorus
  • Potassium

Phosphorus is necessary for the body for forming strong bones and teeth. Calcium alone can't build strong bones and tissues. Recent research shows calcium needs phosphorus to build bone-strength, and taking many calcium supplements without phosphorus will not help.

Peaches nutritional benefits can assist individuals with the following illnesses:

  • Nerve problems

  • Asthma
  • Bladder infection
  • Kidney Stones
  • Bronchitis
  • Constipation
  • Gastritis
  • High Blood Pressure

Everyone wants to have a healthier life style, and by eating 2-5 fruits daily can help with that. Try taking a fruit challenge for one week. Slice your fruit into a bowl every day for 7 days, and you will notice a major difference in your skin complexion, digestive system, immune system, and I'm sure you will notice more great benefits to eating fruit more often. Storing your sliced fruit in a bowl and storing it in the fridge will be more convenient for when you are ready to eat a tasty dessert.

God didn't create fruit for us to just look at. When you saturate your system with fruits you will notice: a sharper mind-set, energy, and other important benefits. Making 'peach cobbler pie' will be a tasty treat for the whole family; especially on special occasions.

      Ann, I appreciate this article for a few reasons. First, your emphasis was not on apples and bananas (you see things written about them all the time). It's very interesting how much benefit the fruits you mention have. Being diabetic, I already have some issues (nothing horrible, but there nevertheless). I struggle to keep my potassium levels where they should be, but I never knew the benefits of eating pears and peaches could have for me. Thanks for a well-researched and well-written hub
