Peach Nutrition

Peach Nutrition Peach nutrition contains good levels of potassium, vitamin A and beta carotene. They also provide a good source of niacin (vitamin B3).

  • Peaches are a very good source of niacin (vitamin B3) which helps lower cholesterol levels and stabilises your blood sugar. Vitamin B3 also helps the body to process fats.

  • Containing good levels of vitamin A, peach nutrition is good for eye health and can help to fight off infections.

  • Peaches also contain good levels of beta carotene which helps protect the bodies' cells from free radical damage and also provides a source of vitamin A. Beta carotene also plays a part in the health of the immune and reproductive systems.

  • Peach nutrition contains good levels of potassium which helps the nerves and muscles to function properly and also maintains the bodies' acid balance. Potassium can also lower the risk of high blood pressure.

  • One medium sized peach contains around 58 calories.
