Autumn, the Season of Persimmons!

Persimmons, a fruit that has been cultivated in Japan for centuries, are gaining popularity worldwide under the name 'Kaki.'
Similar to tomatoes, persimmons are known for their high nutritional value, often described with the saying, 'When persimmons turn red, doctors turn blue,' emphasizing their nutritional richness.

What nutrients are found in persimmons?

● Vitamin C
Persimmons are rich in Vitamin C, with one fruit containing enough to meet your daily needs.
Vitamin C is essential for collagen production, contributing to healthy skin.
Additionally, it boosts immune function, making it effective in preventing infections like the common cold.

● β-Cryptoxanthin
The vibrant orange color of persimmons is attributed to pigments like β-carotene and β-cryptoxanthin.
These compounds, like Vitamin C, have strong antioxidant properties, aiding in the prevention of cancer and aging.

● Potassium
Persimmons have diuretic properties, helping alleviate swelling and cold sensitivity.

● Tannins
Tannins, responsible for the astringency in persimmons, not only break down alcohol but also help regulate blood pressure.
Combined with potassium's diuretic effect, tannins can be beneficial in preventing hangovers.
