The peach, one magical fruit that shouldn’t miss out in your basket next you visit the market.
One fresh peach contains 330 milligrams which is about 10% of daily recommended intake. Peaches are also rich in:
- VITAMIN C, has the ability of working as a diuretic, meaning that it can help remove excess fluids from the blood vessels which may greatly help controlling of blood pressure within the blood vessels
- POTASSIUM, a mineral known to be so good at bringing down the high blood pressure
- FIBER which is known for controlling weight.
- CHOLINE helps in breakdown of low density lipoprotein cholesterol which is known as “bad fat”. This kind of cholesterol is deposited on the walls of the blood vessels making a plaque which causes thinning of the arterial walls. This makes the blood pressure to increase.
It is okay to have one to two peach(es) in a day where else the rest of 80% potassium can be obtained from other food sources.
