During the autumn season, persimmon is an indispensable source of nutrients. It contains vitamins C, E and K, as well as fiber that improves digestion. At the same time, it is not worth giving a berry to children under 3 years old. The fact is that persimmons contain tannins. These tannins have a strong anti-inflammatory effect, but can cause constipation in a small child. For the same reason, people who have problems with the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract should not eat persimmons.
The berry not only has an anti-inflammatory effect, but also improves digestion and vision. The main value of persimmon is considered to be a powerful antioxidant beta-carotene, which stimulates the immune system and promotes tissue regeneration. Moreover, this orange berry can improve brain function and increase concentration.
According to Alexey Kabanov, recent scientific studies have confirmed that the consumption of beta-carotenes in food helps prevent the development of rheumatoid arthritis. One fruit contains 1.2 mg of this substance, and this is only a quarter of the daily requirement. In this case, you should not eat 4 persimmons a day. One fruit per day will be enough.
