Of the whole gamut of useful properties of this miracle fruit for female beauty and health, we have identified the very best for you. So persimmon:
1. Smoothes wrinkles and slows down aging
Do you want to have a face like a baby? Skin care products alone are not enough. No matter how expensive the cream is, it will not help you get rid of wrinkles if the body is deficient in vitamins and trace elements. Do not rush to run to the pharmacy for multivitamin complexes, because you will find everything you need in fruits. Plus, they’re so delicious! Not only apples have anti-aging properties, but also the “plum of the gods”, as persimmons were called in ancient times. This fruit is a real pantry of health.
2. Relieves stress and improves performance
Just the sight of bright orange fruits, similar to small suns, cheers up. And all the same set of useful substances contained in persimmon (especially B vitamins) has a positive effect on the nervous system and increases its resistance to external influences. It also provides sound sleep and improves concentration. So we advise you to lean on persimmon if you have an activity associated with significant mental stress.
3. Satisfies hunger without adding extra pounds
Persimmon is not a high-calorie product, but at the same time, its sweet pulp perfectly satisfies hunger, so nutritionists recommend including this fruit in the diet for those people who want to lose extra pounds. It is best to eat persimmons in the form of salads or drinks. So, a glass of persimmon smoothie half an hour before meals contributes to weight loss, and all vitamins are better absorbed this way. Just remember that persimmons, like bananas, are not recommended to eat at night, especially with high blood sugar levels.
4. Improves vision
According to scientific studies, regular consumption of fruits and vegetables high in beta-carotene can improve vision. In ripe persimmon fruits, there is even more beta-carotene than in carrots! In order to satisfy the body’s daily need for beta-carotene, doctors recommend eating only two persimmon fruits a day.
