Benefits of peach and raspberry smoothie
Rich in vitamins A and C, peaches promote immunity and skin health and even improve vision.
Vitamins C and E, selenium, beta carotene, lutein, lycopene, and zeaxanthin are all examples of antioxidants, and they are all present in raspberries.
Native to northwest China and scientifically called Prunus persica, peaches benefit humans in many other ways.
Peaches are related to plums, apricots, cherries and almonds. They are considered fluffy or stone fruits because their flesh has a shell that contains an edible seed.
The Raspberry is a popular berry with a rich color and sweet, juicy taste. They are a good source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Now let’s look at.
Benefits of peach
Peaches are high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They also contain beneficial plant compounds such as antioxidants, which can help protect your body from aging and disease.
In one study, antioxidant actions were performed in healthy men within 30 minutes with fresh peach juice. 1
A medium-sized peach provides about 2 grams of fiber – half of which is soluble fiber, while the other half is insoluble. 2
Insoluble fiber adds bulk to your stool and helps to move food through your intestine, reducing the likelihood of constipation. 3
On the other hand, soluble fiber provides food for beneficial bacteria in your intestines. In turn, these bacteria produce short-chain fatty acids – such as acetate, propionate, and butyrate – that feed your intestinal cells. 4
Short-chain fatty acids in your stomach can help reduce inflammation and improve digestive disorders such as Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and ulcerative colitis. 5
Compounds in peach and peach flowers can help your skin retain moisture and protect it from sun damage. However, more research is needed.
Peaches can help reduce your immune system’s allergic reaction, thus reducing allergy symptoms.
Compounds found in peaches may provide some protection from cancer by limiting the formation, growth, and proliferation of cancer cells.
Benefits of raspberry
Raspberries contain plant chemicals called plavonoids, which exert antioxidant effects.
Antioxidants help the body eliminate toxins known as free radicals. The body produces some of these substances during metabolic processes, but others arise from external factors, such as unhealthy foods and pollution. Unhealthy foods include processed foods and high in fat and sugar.
If too much free radicals remain in the body, they can cause cell damage, which can result in health problems.
Experts have suggested that a diet rich in antioxidants may contribute to the health of the brain and nervous system. 7
There is evidence that vitamins C and E can help preserve a person’s ability to think and remember information as they get older. Raspberries contain these antioxidant vitamins.
Research has shown that a group of flavonoids, specifically – anthocyanin—can suppress inflammation that can lead to heart disease. Anthocyanins are also present in raspberries. 8
The American Heart Association encourages most people to increase their potassium intake and reduce the amount of sodium in their diet. These dietary adjustments may help prevent:
In 2010, scientists treated stomach, colon, and breast cancer cells with extracts of Meeker red raspberries. The extract killed more than 90% of the cells. Researchers estimated that antioxidants were responsible for about half of the destruction of breast cancer cells. 10
Raspberry contains the antioxidant zeaxanthin, which filters out harmful blue light rays. 11
It may also play a role in protecting the eyes from problems such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a condition that causes vision problems in older people.
