      Why should you add apricots to your diet?

      Apricots are delicious fruits that are highly nutritious and filled with Vitamins A, C and E. They are also a rich source of potassium. Besides this, they contain beta carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin which are antioxidants.

      Get glowing skin

      The major causes for wrinkles and skin damage are sun exposure, pollution and cigarette smoke. This is rich in Vitamin C & E. Vitamin C in particular is not only helpful in protecting the skin from pollution and sun damage, it also helps to build collagen. The fruit also contains betacarotene which protects the skin from sunburn. The antioxidants present keep skin young and protect them from free radicals.

      Boost your hydration

      Apricots are naturally high in their water content and helps to maintain blood pressure, body temperature, joint health, and heart rate. Most of us tend to drink less water than we require and this is a good way to make up for the lack.

      Protect your liver

      Apricots can keep your liver safe from damage as they have a naturally high antioxidant content. They protect this precious organ from oxidative stress.

      Rich in potassium

      This is a mineral that works in tandem with sodium to keep the fluid levels in the body at optimum levels. Potassium also works to keep high B.P. at bay and prevent stroke.

      Improves eye health

      Apricots contain Vitamin A, a vitamin that’s important for good vision. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that enters the eye and prevents free radical damage.

      Enjoy better gut health

      Apricots are rich in both soluble and insoluble fiber. The high level of soluble fiber goes a long way in helping you stay within healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels. It also makes the food pass more slowly through the digestive tract therefore feeding beneficial gut bacteria.
