Tid Bit(e) Tuesday
Peaches come in a few different varieties and one of my favorites is the doughnut peach (but really I like all kinds). It doesn’t taste like a donut but is flat and circular like one
- TASTE – I think they taste slightly sweeter than other peaches with very soft flesh and skin
- PREVENT CANCER – Theres an antioxidant called caffeic acid and its found abundantly in peaches. This antioxidant has been shown to inhibit tumor growth in fibrous connective tissue that can be life threatening (1)
- STONE FRUIT – Peaches are considered stone fruits due to the large inner pit. These types of fruits have a unique combination of bioactive compounds. These compounds can create drastic changes/improvements in people at risk for heart disease which is something that is said to run in families
- HELPS IN DETOX – Peach extracts possess hepato-protectant elements and can help treat the condition of hepato-toxicity. This happens when people are taking too many pills/drugs for their chronic diseases, it is chemical-driven liver damage.
