Friday, 17 Dec 2010 05:09 PM

They're juicy, they're sweet and they're nutritious. But more than that, peaches are good for your body's overall health and can act as a home remedy for many ailments. If you're looking for a reason why you should eat peaches, look no further. The facts will astound you and send you running to your nearest produce stand. Did you know that peaches can help you:
LOSE WEIGHT. Yes, these little orange colored jewels are high in fiber and produce a full feeling for those looking for tasty snacks. Additionally, they're made up of 80% water which helps flush your system out. 
SKIN GLOW will come from adding peaches to your diet. Perhaps it's the high amount of water in them or maybe it's the high concentration of vitamin A, but peaches help keep the skin healthy and add color to a pale face by regenerating facial tissue. 
DIGESTIVE ISSUES can be helped by making peaches a permanent part of your eating plan. The increased water content in peaches allows for ease of bowel movement and reduces the need to strain. They also help for those who need an increased diuretic effect. The powerful peach will also rid your intestinal tract of any worms.
LOWER CHOLESTEROL will come as a result of eating peaches more often. They can also help prevent cardiovascular diseases, fight infections, renal diseases, and anemia.
HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE can be reduced by eating peaches.
ANTI-CANCER agents in peaches help prevent the growth of tumors and cancerous cells, thus helping prevent certain forms of cancer.
EYE HEALTH can be improved by eating peaches due to the carotenoids present. They help protect the eyes from harmful sunlight and slow the progression of eye diseases like night blindness and cataracts.
To improve your overall health and address specific issues like digestive problems, high cholesterol and high blood pressure, it's recommended that you make fruits, peaches in particular, a part of a well-balanced diet. Instead of popping a pill the next time you need digestive help, trying eating a peach or two in the upcoming week. You'll be glad you did.
