Feeling Berry Peachy

Vitamins A, C, E, and several B vitamins are present, including thiamine, niacin, and folate. Lutein, the carotenoid in peaches, has been shown to protect the retina from macular degeneration, reduce nuclear cataracts, and even produce anti-inflammatory effects on skin damage caused from harmful UVB rays. The minerals potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc provide a wealth of positive benefits, including stress relief from magnesium and boosted immune system and anti-aging properties from zinc. Peaches can also aid digestion as an alkaline and fiber-rich fruit, and flush toxins from the liver. “There’s your Karma ripe as peaches.” ~Jack Kerouac, Desolation Angels
