Benefits of eating apricots
Dr. Angela Tolmasova, an endocrinologist, indicates that apricots are a very beneficial fruit for health because they contain a high percentage of vital substances and compounds.

According to the doctor, apricot fruits contain a group of natural protective biochemical compounds that help maintain and improve vision, and maintain youthful skin. As well as improving the performance of the digestive system, supporting the work of the heart and blood vessels, normalizing blood pressure, protecting the liver, and helping the body resist tumors.

She says: “Apricots contain a high percentage of natural organic pigments such as carotenoids, flavonoids and phenols, which protect plants. These elements have the same effect on the human body, as they support the immune system and protect against some forms of cancer.”

The doctor points out that thanks to carotenoids, the color of apricots changes from light yellow to orange (the darker the color, the greater the amount of carotenoids). These materials are considered a source of vitamin A, which plays an important role in protecting vision and preventing age-related eye changes.

In addition, carotenoids improve the condition of the skin and protect it from ultraviolet rays, environmental pollution, and nicotine. Studies have shown that eating apricots improves skin tone and elasticity.
“The fiber found in apricots, peaches, and plums helps prevent constipation and maintain normal digestive function,” she says. “In addition, the large amount of fiber and protective biochemical compounds found in fruit affects the gut microbiome. Studies have shown that dried fruits can alter the Positive components of the gut microbiome.”

According to her, the same set of protective elements combined with antioxidants found in apricots helps fight cardiovascular diseases. It also helps reduce the level of “bad” cholesterol.

Apricots, as a source of potassium, affect electrolyte metabolism and water balance in the body, which contributes to normalizing blood pressure. The antioxidants (carotenoids and vitamins) in apricots can have a protective effect against damage caused by alcohol and other toxins, protecting the liver from damage.

She says: “Dried apricots contain lignans (phytochemical compounds), which are plant estrogen. These compounds support the body in the period preceding menopause. They are also able to protect the body from chronic diseases, including heart disease and even cancer.”
