They are antioxidants
Vitamin C has a high antioxidant power, and protects the cells and tissues of our body. Fruits and vegetables, fresh and raw, rich in vitamin C, such as persimmons, melons, among other citrus fruits and vegetables, contain antioxidants.
Antioxidants can block free radicals that modify bad cholesterol, thus reducing cardiovascular risk.
The persimmon is one of the fruits with the greatest antioxidant properties. Eating fruits like persimmons can help keep us young for longer, delaying the appearance of wrinkles, spots on the skin and other imperfections, hair, etc. They also increase our defences.
