The surprising health benefits of peaches

Health benefits of peaches-iStock-586174648 (1)

When glorious peaches take pride of place on shop shelves, you know summer’s in full swing. And they’re not just a pretty face, too!

Peachy powerhouse

A peach has 25 per cent of your daily vitamin C needs and 10 per cent of your recommended daily fibre target. Not bad for a deliciously sweet piece of fruit.

ACE antioxidants

Vitamins A, C and E’s powerful disease-fighting antioxidant properties are all found in juicy peaches. Peaches contain the antioxidant beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A in your body to boost eye health.

Light & satisfying

Low-Glycaemic Index (GI) peaches are an easy snack choice. Their slow-burning energy will keep you feeling full — and less likely to reach for the biscuit jar — when 3pm rolls by!
