Raw peaches are high in a number of nutrients your body needs such as niacin, thiamine, potassium and calcium.
They are also high in beta carotene, an antioxidant that converts to Vitamin A, which is essential for possibly supporting heart and eye health. The nourishing level of antioxidants in peaches may also help support healthy urinary and digestive functions.
Peaches are a good source of many different vitamins and minerals, but one that particularly prolongs life is potassium. Peaches provide a high source for this mineral. If you have a shortage of potassium, you're likely to have fatigue, anxiety, muscle weakness, skin problems, poor memory, hypertension, cardiac arrhythmia, congestive heart failure or heart deterioration and vibration in your ears. The laundry list of potential diseases caused by low potassium has more potential to develop if you're on diuretics, have abdominal problems or diarrhea or simply sweat profusely.
Another health benefit of peaches comes from the amount of beta-carotene it contains. The body converts beta-carotene to vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential in so many of the body's functions. A recent study showed that people who had higher amounts of vitamin A in their diet had less risk of developing cataracts. Other studies show a derivative of vitamin A might be instrumental in combating COPD in mice though there are presently no studies on humans.

-- Our peaches are high in fiber and rich in Vitamin C
Peaches also contain lycopene and lutein. These are also carotenoids, like beta-carotene and give color to the peach. There are several studies and indications that these two substances, may help support eye health and support heart health.
Peaches are a natural source of fiber. There are two types of fiber. Insoluble fiber doesn't dissolve in water and soluble fiber does. Insoluble fiber is heart healthy because it collects water and increases the bulk of the stool. Your stool then acts like little scrubbers along the intestines and removes the buildup of waste. Cleansing the intestinal wall also increases the amount of nutrients your body can absorb and rids the body of toxicity. Insoluble fiber may support healthy lipid levels.
Almost everyone knows that oranges are a good source of vitamin C. The Florida orange growers won't let you forget. However, peaches may contain nourishing levels of vitamin C. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that may help support a healthy immune system response.
