Health benefits of peaches

One of the main reasons I love the summer time is for the amazing juicy fruits like peaches. Not only do they taste amazing, but there are so many great benefits to them. There is a long list but here a just a few.

 

Weight Control
One large peach, about 2 3/4 inches in diameter, contains just 68 calories and no fat. Eating peaches instead of more fattening, processed snacks, such as chips, baked goods, cereal bars and cookies, can help you manage your weight. Peaches are naturally sweet and can replace some of the added sugars in your diet.

Vitamins

Peaches contain 10 different vitamins. Peaches contain vitamin A, important to healthy vision, vitamin C, an antioxidant and tissue-builder. Peaches provide lower levels of vitamins E and K. Vitamin E is another antioxidant, while vitamin K is essential to your body’s blood clotting capabilities. Peaches are also a source of thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B-6, niacin, folate and pantothenic acid

Minerals

A peach provides potassium, which can help you maintain healthy blood pressure as well as prevent kidney stones and bone loss. Peaches provide some magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, manganese, iron and calcium as well. These minerals work to support red blood cell, bone and nervous system health.

Antioxidants

One of the major antioxidants in peaches, chlorogenic acid, helps scavenge free radicals — compounds that your body acquires through exposure to pollutants, food and the environment — to reduce the effects of aging and deter chronic diseases. This antioxidant may also help ward off cancer and reduce body

Fiber

A large peach provides 17 g of carbohydrates, 3 g of which come from fiber. Fiber is essential to smooth and healthy digestion, preventing constipation and ensuring digestive health. Fiber may also play a role in regulating your cholesterol levels, helping to reduce your risk of developing heart disease. An adult woman should try to consume 25 g of fiber daily, and an adult man 38 g daily.

Peaches are a lot of great source of zinc, which has anti-aging properties. The consumption of zinc-rich foods such as peaches promotes the production of antibodies and inhibits the cellular damage caused by toxins. Peaches also interferes with the aging process of male reproductive organs by boosting the levels of the reproductive hormone testosterone in the body.

So next time you’re out grocery shopping, be sure to pick up a bag of peaches for yourself.

Wellness Wednesday: common detox symptoms

I’ve gotten so many inboxes concerning two common symptoms of detoxing. Those symptoms are constipation and excess body odor. There are other symptoms experienced during detoxing/fasting, but these are the two common ones everyone experiences right off the top.

While going through a detox, there are two main exits for these toxins to escape from. The skin and colon. Many people have mentioned how they’ve felt really backed up during the first few days of detoxing/fasting. Well it’s really normal. Depending on how much waste is in the body, it could be that the detox is working faster than the body is able to process it. So as the body is detoxing itself, waste is piling up in the colon trying to get out. This is not the time to give up!! Instead, drink more water and if possible incorporate some exercise. A simple 15-30 minute walk around the neighborhood/office will do to get things flowing.

The other complaint is that people experience excess body odor. The thing not to do is to bathe in Cologne/perfume, or any heavy deodorants. Toxins are trying to get out through the skin and putting on all those things will cause the skin to clog up and could lead to sickness. Use light oils like coconut oil, rose water, or any deodorant that does not contain aluminum or other chemicals.

If you have anymore questions concerning detoxing, fasting, weight loss, and other health questions. Be sure to schedule a consultation with me by clicking here.
