Peachy Benefits Year Round

Read Post

It is that time of year you can purchase flats of delicious peaches for canning, like my family did on our Wisconsin farm. My sisters and I didn’t really enjoy the canning work, but we always looked forward to our mom’s homemade peach pie. Pies typically are on the “not ok” list per nutritionists, but Hill & Valley No Sugar Added Peach pie is different. For starters, the FIRST ingredient is peaches. Plus, some of the health benefits of peaches may surprise you.

Stone fruits like peaches contain bioactive and phenolic compounds that may help to reduce the bad cholesterol (LDL) associated with heart disease, according to a study from Texas A & M.

Also, high blood pressure is a risk factor for heart disease. Per Mark Houston, MD, MS, an associate clinical professor of medicine at Vanderbilt Medical School, increasing potassium intake along with decreasing sodium intake is the most important diet change that a person can do to control your blood pressure naturally. Peaches are a great source of potassium.

Lastly, another study from Texas A & M showed that peach and plum extracts were effective in killing even the most aggressive types of breast cancer cells and did not harm normal healthy cells in the process.

The best part of Hill & Valley pies are you can enjoy the health benefits year round. Pick up your No Sugar Added Peach Pie today!
