This Month’s Super Food: Apricots
We love apricots – the perfect early summer fruit with just the right tart-sweet combination enfolded in a beautiful deep orange package. Health benefits include the treatment of indigestion, constipation, fever, skin diseases, anemia, and improving heart health. A single apricot is only 17 calories, but packs a good amount of Vitamins A, C, fiber and potassium. Did we mention they are also delicious? Need proof?
