Aids digestion

The insoluble fiber in peaches adds bulk to your stool, decreasing the risk of constipation. The soluble fiber in them eases symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and ulcerative colitis.

Improves heart health

Many test-tube and animal studies have revealed that peaches are helpful in decreasing total and "bad" cholesterol LDL levels, as well as triglyceride levels and blood pressure.

Improves skin

Various test-tube studies show that the compounds found in peaches can improve the skin's ability to retain moisture. Peach extracts from flowers or its flesh can prevent UV damage too.

Boosts immunity

Eating only one medium-sized peach daily can offer you 11% of your daily vitamin C requirement. It's also rich in vitamin E which keeps your immune system healthy.

Potentially lowers the risk of cancer

Peaches are rich in carotenoids and caffeic acid - two antioxidants with anticancer properties. The polyphenols in them reduce the growth of cancer-causing cells.
