Peach

Introduction

These are among the most widely used and popular fruits in the whole world. In spite of their worldwide use, they have a lot of uncovered sides and hide many unknown secrets. Initially peach was way more popular and widespread fruit than mango because it was introduced to the civilized world centuries earlier than the other one. In fact, the latter occurred in Europe in the middle of the 15th century, while peach was known to Europeans back in the ancient times. However, the second fruit has been gaining great reputation since then and now it is considered as one of the inseparable foods in many modern cultures. Nevertheless, as we mentioned before they have a lot of undisclosed sides which very few seem to know. Hence, in this article we would like to reveal them and ultimately compare these two fruits by thoroughly studying them.

Nutritional Content Comparison

Firstly, it is very important to have a look at the nutritional values of these fruits as their comparison will allow us to fairly judge exactly how healthy they are. As surprising as it may seem to you, mango is much richer in vitamins than peach. Let's take a look at their '' strongest'' vitamin, vitamin C which they both have the most in comparison with other vitamins. Nonetheless, a 300 gram of it contains approximately 61 percent vitamin C, while the same amount of peach contains only 11 percent. Similarly, the first fruit contains for about 22 percent Vitamin A, while the second one contains less than 7 percent. The same goes with almost all vitamins but those that we spoke about were two main ones. It is also important to mention though that they both lack vitamin D, vitamin B12 and Folic acid (vitamin B9).

Minerals in fruits

Moving to the minerals, we must admit that the same thing goes there. Mango is again at the higher position but with less advantage over the other fruit than it had while comparing their vitamins. Mango is leader in absolutely vital minerals such as magnesium, calcium, choline, copper and sodium but it is especially richer in magnesium and copper. When it comes to potassium, it is obvious that they both are very rich in it. Nevertheless, in terms of this mineral peach wins over the other one. They contain 5.4 and 4.8 percent potassium respectively. In addition, the first fruit is a leader in lots of minerals as well, such as iron and phosphorus. The other practically lacks those minerals. Summing up all the data on the nutritional values of these fruits, it turns out that mango is clearly a winner and contains much more vitamins and minerals than the other.

Health Impact

Everyone knows how incredibly delicious these fruits are. But in fact they taste so good people forget to go deeper into their health benefits and find out just how extremely healthy they are. Firstly we would like to talk on common things these two fruits are great for. Surprisingly, there are lots of them. It appears that both mango and peach are absolutely beneficial for your skin. They keep your skin healthy and at the same time clear it intensively. Moreover, they can be used both internally and externally for your skin care. The reason why they are so good for human skin is their abundance of vitamin A and C. What may sound the most surprising to you is that they are both stress-relievers! One of the most bothering problems of modern day society is stress and anxiety, so why no to try eating peach and mango in order to get rid of them. In contrast with all those pills, they taste delicious and in most cases cost less than medicine. Now let's get to more serious problems these fruits can be great for and discuss them respectively.

Preventing from cancer, night blindness, overheating, etc.

Some studies have shown that mango prevents the risk of getting various types of cancer like breast one. Later it was revealed that it has this amazing impact on your health mainly because of antioxidant compounds.

Being rich in fiber, pectin and vitamin C, this amazing fruit helps reduce the level of cholesterol while the high levels of vitamin A improves your eye health promoting good eyesight and preventing from night blindness and dry eyes. The aforementioned fiber has one more important impact on the health, it improves digestion and elimination. Squeezing a green mango and mixing its juice with a sweetener and water prevents your body from overheating, hence helping reduce the chances of heat stoke. Lastly, it is absolutely beneficial for your immune system. The vitamins A and C which they are rich in helps keep your immune system strong.

Peaches, on the other hand, are quite healthy in a number of ways. Firstly, they are just perfect for losing weight. In fact, they contain very few calories in contrast with most of everyday foods and plus they have no fat. Having said that we find it very important, to mention that they keep obesity-related diabetes away thanks to being rich in phytochemicals. They also decrease the chances of hair loss having especially beneficial effect on the scalp. Moreover, this fruit restrains the tumour growth having very positive antimicrobial activity. Last but not least, we find it very interesting that peach tea is widely used to heal chronic bronchitis, coughs and gastritis, meanwhile in China it is even used for various kidney diseases.

Another study has come to show that UV-B radiation results a good approach to increase antioxidant production in this fruit, enhancing their nutraceutical properties. Comparing the health impacts of both peach and mango on our organisms, we strongly believe that although they are both great for our health, though the latter seems to have more noteworthy influence on us than the other one. It is also interesting to look at the production details of these fruits. Looking at their production data we can clearly see that people nowadays prefer mangos to peaches. In 2014 the world produced 43 tonnes of the first one and only 22.8 tonnes of the second oen. We find it very interesting as according to our research the first one takes it all against the second one as well. Even though we understand that you may disagree with our conclusion the first fruit come to be a lot healthier and more nutritious than peaches.

SUMMARY

Having thoroughly discussed the nutritional values of both mango and peach, their impact on our health, we have come to certain conclusions. It appears that mango is 8 times richer in vitamins than peach, and in the contrast to it, the latter is higher in minerals approximately two times. Thus, it remains you to decide which one is better for your needs.
