1. Nectarines are a low in calories.
A small nectarine has fewer than 60 calories. If you crave something sweet, try dressing up plain yogurt with nectarine slices or other stone fruit, such as cherries or peaches.
2. Nectarines are good for your eyes.
Nectarines contain lutein, an antioxidant that can reduce the risk of cataracts. Increasing the amount of lutein in our diets has also been associated with lower risks of age-related macular degeneration. One small nectarine contains about 150 micrograms of lutein.
3. Nectarines keep blood sugar in check.
Nectarines have a glycemic index in the low 40s. That means they won’t cause a quick rise in blood sugar, which can lead to crashes and mood swings.
4. Nectarines keep us energized.
Credit the copper, not the calories, in nectarines for this benefit. A medium nectarine contains 6-9% of the recommended daily intake of copper. Copper is an essential mineral that helps our bodies absorb iron and prevent anemia. The potassium in nectarines also keeps us going. Low potassium levels can cause hypokalemia, a condition that can leave us feeling tired and weak.
5. Nectarines promote heart health.
Chalk it up to all that copper, which also helps with blood pressure control and heart function. The fruit’s potassium also plays a role in heart health. A medium nectarine contains about 285 milligrams of potassium or roughly 8% of what we need every day. Upping potassium intake has been linked to lower blood pressureand reduced risk of stroke.
6. Nectarines are good for the skin.
There are many nutrients in nectarines that promote healthy skin. One of them is vitamin E, which can act as an anti-inflammatory and also protects skin from free radical damage caused by ultraviolet light. A medium nectarine contains about 5% of our daily vitamin E needs.
