Apricots are a wondrous stone fruit that carry a cornucopia of health benefits. They contain a life force element known as beta-carotene; it comes from the Greek word beta and Latin word carota, meaning carrot. The body’s amazing ability to convert nutrients and minerals is what allows it to sustain itself. Beta-carotene is converted in the human body into vitamin A, which is an essential nutrient that takes care of the eyes, immune system, vision, mucous membranes, and even the skin.
What’s amazing about apricots is that it targets various health processes that help our bodies fend off wear and tear. Even ageing, which is a much talked about transition, can be slowed down with a good serving of apricots every day. So what is beta-carotene? It is antioxidant; this means that it protects the body from oxidation which leads to a release of free radicals when molecules react with oxygen. Free radicals are the enemy–think of them as tiny hostile soldiers marching into battle, where your body tries to destroy them before they cause severe, long-term damage.
The next time you set your sights on a lovely spread of vegetables and fruits, remember that it’s beta-carotene that gives them a rich, eye-popping colour. Consuming at least four servings of apricots can also reduce your risk of cancer and heart disease. But bear in mind that too much of a good thing can be bad–it has been observed that men and women who consume beta-carotene in excess, succumb to a higher risk of lung cancer or other lung-related diseases. Therefore, consuming apricots in their natural form, in controlled portions, will benefit you in more ways than one.
