Benefits of Persimmon
High in Vitamin C
One 3.5ounce persimmon contains 66 milligrams of vitamin C almost as much as an orange, and meets 110 percent of the daily value. Vitamin C is a watersoluble vitamin known for its antioxidant properties. As an antioxidant, vitamin C protects your cells against free radicals, which may in turn help reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer. Vitamin C is also needed to make collagen, which is the protein that helps heal your cuts.
