Treat Stomach Pain
Fresh persimmon contains 19.6% carbohydrates, mainly fructose and glucose, 0.7% protein, vitamin A and potassium. Fresh Persimmon fruits also contain healthy amounts of minerals like potassium, manganese (15% of DRI), copper (12% of DRI), and phosphorus. Manganese is a cofactor for the enzyme, superoxide dismutase, which is a very powerful free radical scavenger. Copper is a cofactor for many vital enzymes, including cytochrome coxidase and superoxide dismutase (other minerals function as cofactors for this enzyme are manganese, and zinc). Copper is also required for the production of red blood cells.
