06 Sep 2018

There is no better time than summer to add fruits to the diet with the most essential fruits being stone fruits that include peaches, nectarines, apricots, plums, and cherries. A stone fruit is a fruit with flesh or pulp enclosing a stone. There are health benefits attached to consuming these fruits.

The health benefits of consuming stone fruits include:

Protects Vision– There is a connection between diet and vision. We are talking about carotenoids over here which are a type of antioxidant believed to help strengthen the eyesight. They are found in vibrant-colored fruits like peaches and nectarines.

Improves Bone Health– Stone fruits can also help promote healthier bones and teeth that can help prevent osteoporosis (a health condition for which the risk increases with aging) which can be attributed to their richness in Vitamin K.

Develops Collagen– Collagen is a protein that gives the skin strength and elasticity and the vitamin C in stone fruits can significantly increase collagen production.

Improves Immune System– Incorporating stone fruits into your diet is a way that can boost your vitamin C intake and your immune system.

Improves Nerve and Muscle Health– Like we all are aware about bananas being rich in potassium with potassium contributing to keeping the nerves and muscles healthy while also helping to regulate blood pressure. You might be surprised to know that two small peaches have the same amount of potassium as a half of a banana.

Fiber Increment– Stone fruits are rich with fiber. Consuming enough daily fiber can help to maintain a healthy digestive system. Apart from this, fiber also helps with cholesterol and weight management.

Incorporating stone fruits in the diet is very easy which you can do by:

  1. Drinking a glass of pure cherry juice every morning.
  2. Adding fresh or frozen stone fruits to a Greek-yogurt-based smoothie.
  3. Adding chopped stone fruits to a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast.
