Peaches are juicy and delicious, fuzzy skinned fruit hailing from China. They are classified as freestone fruit as the seed easily dislodges from the flesh. Peaches come in a variety of colours including white, yellow and red and are in peak season in Australia from November to April. Peaches are best eaten when they have a fragrant aroma and their flesh yields slightly if you press it softly.

Peaches can be enjoyed whole, sliced through fruit salads, added to your porridge and muesli at breakfast, diced into salads and made into a jam. Peaches also make a great healthy addition to many dessert and go perfectly served freshly sliced with yoghurt or ice-cream.

Peaches are extremely nutritious fruits, rich in phytochemicals and flavanols that act as antioxidants in our bodies to fight free radical damage. Some of these amazing compounds include chlorogenic acid, catechins, gallic acid, rutin and isoquercetin. These compounds play a vital role in healthy hair, skin and nails as they help protect our cells from environmental damage. Peaches are a great source of Vitamins A and B, which again play a vital role in skin and hair health.

With their high phytochemical and flavanol content, it’s no wonder that peaches make the perfect addition to Vida Glow’s Marine Collagen range. Vitamin C plays an essential role in collagen connective tissue synthesis. Collagen works with elastin to support the skin providing firmness and strength, whilst elastin gives the skin flexibility. Replenishing collagen levels in your body with a natural supplement like Vida Glow slows the ageing process, adds hydration, firmness and plumps the skin, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. Vida Glow also strengthens and promotes growth to your hair and nails.

For the perfect healthy supplement for your hair, skin and nails, add Peach Vida Glow Marine Collagen to your water, juice, smoothie, yoghurt or breakfast cereal. Also, try my Healthy Peach Parfait recipe below to help nourish your skin, hair and nails.
