Peaches are a great source of vitamins B3, beta-carotene, and folate. Peaches also contain a good amount of calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. The lutein and zeaxanthin in peaches help promote healthy eyes while the boron found in peaches can help to stabilize hormones and reduce the craving for something sweet during times of PMS.
