Beta-Carotene—Nectarines get their orange color from beta-carotene, a compound that has been shown to have a vast array of health benefits. The body metabolizes beta-carotene into Vitamin A, which helps to maintain radiant skin and healthy mucous membranes. In addition, beta-carotene is beneficial for maintaining healthy eyesight and preventing macular degeneration.
Vitamin C—Nectarines are a great source of Vitamin C, which helps the body to fight off infections while supporting tissue repair and other forms of healing. In addition, Vitamin C is a huge boost to the immune system to help you stave off that pesky cold. Also, research indicates that Vitamin C might have antioxidant properties, helping the body to fight off damaging free radicals that are responsible for rapid aging, and even cancer.
Dietary Fiber—Nectarines are loaded with both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber, which help to lower blood sugar levels, regulate digestion, and even lower LDL “bad” cholesterol, because this form of cholesterol binds to the fiber and then is passed benignly through the body.
Potassium—Nectarines are an incredible source of potassium, which is necessary for cardiovascular health and blood pressure regulation. It is also crucial in helping your body to recover from especially strenuous exercise routines.
Overall Nectarines are amazing for your body, and they just happen to taste great! So why don’t you try Bee Fruity and Nutty’s amazing dried nectarines in baked goods, desserts, trail mixes, packed lunches, or just snack on them straight from the package!
