Nectarine Nutrition

Nectarine Nutrition The nectarine is fairly high in vitamin A and beta carotene, with good levels of potassium and dietary fibre.

  • Nectarine nutrition contains good levels of beta carotene which helps to protect the cells from free radical damage, provides a source of vitamin A and helps in the function of the immune and reproductive systems.

  • Nectarines provide a good source of vitamin A which is good for eyesight and helps to fight off viral infections.

  • Nectarine nutrition also contains reasonably high amounts of potassium which help the nerves and muscles to function properly, maintains the bodies' acid balance and helps to lower the risk of high blood pressure.

  • Nectarines are also a good source of vitamin B3 (niacin), which helps to stabilise blood sugar, helps the body to process fats and also helps to lower cholesterol levels.

  • One nectarine contains around 62 calories.
