Composed of 87% water, fishing rehydrates the body and eliminates toxins. Water is essential for the proper functioning of blood circulation and brain activity. In fact, blood is 95% water. And it is water that transports nutrients to the cells of your body and eliminates waste. If you’re dehydrated, your brain may be the first to feel the effects, with headaches, lack of concentration and a reduction in your short-term memory ability. Peach also allows a “remineralization” of the body because it contains potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and iron.

But, in addition to preventing constipation and reducing the risk of colon cancer, foods rich in fiber, mainly soluble fiber, contribute to the prevention of cardiovascular disease and better control of type 2 diabetes and appetite. Indeed, fibers capture cholesterol and toxins. They are therefore essential for cleansing the body. And, as they gorge themselves with water as soon as they are in the stomach, they are taken as appetite suppressants. To consume more, eat the skin (cleaned of course) of the peaches because they contain a lot.
