Benefits of Persimmon
Helps in improving production of red blood cells
Copper, present in this fruit, helps in proper iron absorption. This in turn helps in the production of red blood cells. Persimmons contain health benefiting flavonoid polyphenolic antioxidants such as catechins and gallocatechins in addition to having an important antitumor compound, betulinic acid. Catechins are known to have antiinfective, antiinflammatory and antihemorrhagic (prevents bleeding from small blood vessels) properties.
