  • SuperFood - Peaches

    Peaches are a low-calorie, very juicy fruit and a good source of “portable water” for hot days. Another hot weather benefit is their high potassium content, which helps regulate hydration and can therefore help you avoid muscle cramps. Peaches are also a good source of vitamins A and C, beta-carotene, and lutein—all beneficial to preserving vision. Peaches also have a reputation as a laxative, courtesy of the combination of high fiber and high water content.
    In the lab, extracts from peaches have slowed the growth of some types of breast and colon cancer cells. In a National Cancer Institute study, people who consumed more peaches and related fruits, such as nectarines and plums, were less likely to develop cancers of the mouth, throat, or larynx.
