Lychee Nutrition

Lychee Nutrition Lychee nutrition is high in heart healthy polyphenols, very high in vitamin C, and good sources of riboflavin, copper and potassium.

  • High in polyphenols which is an essential group of nutrients which acts as an antioxidant and has anti inflammatory and anti cancer health benefits.

  • Lychee nutrition is high in vitamin C which helps to protect cells and tissues from free radical damage, thereby helping to prevent cancer. Vitamin C also aids dietary iron absorption.

  • Lychees are a good source of potassium which is needed to help your muscles and nerves function properly. Potassium also helps to maintain your bodies' acid balance and helps lower your risk of high blood pressure.

  • Lychees are also a good source of copper which helps your body to utilise dietary iron and to reduce the tissues from free radical damage. Copper also helps the thyroid gland to function normally.

  • Lychee nutrition contains a good source of vitamin B2 (riboflavin), which helps to protect cells from oxygen damage, support cellular energy production and maintain the supply of other B vitamins.

  • One lychee contains around 6 calories.
