10.7 #RoadToEverest Persimmons! I refuse to go on a diet that will restrict fruits. Yeah. No Keto for me. God is in the details. These days, macros (calories, fat, carbs, protein) are not nearly important to my wellbeing as micro nutrients and minerals.
Persimmons are rich in a number of antioxidants esp vitamin A, beta-carotene, lutein, lycopene, and cryptoxanthins that reduce oxidative stress. It prevents
signs of premature aging like wrinkles, age spots, Alzheimer’s fatigue, loss of vision, muscle weakness etc. I'm 50...HELLO!
Also it provides copper, an essential element in creating new red blood cells. Without copper, you cannot uptake various essential nutrients to make additional hemoglobin. I'm anaemic due to prolonged menstrual flow - a part of my menopausal years. I need to fix this before my high altitude climb. Otherwise, my brain will not have enough oxygen and I will suffer from altitude sickness.
If you look beyond the simplistic view of "evil carbs" this fruit high in copper also helps weightloss. Increased circulation of healthy red blood cells increases muscle tone, metabolism, and energy levels, as well as wound repair and cellular growth. It's a matter of perspective. In my perspective, #MicronutrientsMatter
