Flu and viruses become more active in winter, so strengthening your immune system is crucial to staying healthy. Eating a healthy diet and eating certain fruits will help you do that, according to Express.

Why you should eat persimmons in winter

Persimmon is a very healthy fruit that is rich in vitamins. These orange fruits are rich in vitamins C, E, and potassium, with 118 calories per serving.

Nutritionist and founder of the Healthy Mays clinic, Mays Al Ali, said that persimmons lower cholesterol and should be eaten daily.

Persimmon looks very similar to a tomato, but its orange, mango-like inner flesh is tender and has immune-stimulating properties.

It contains only 0.3 grams of fat per serving and 6 grams of fiber, which helps reduce inflammation and promotes healthy digestion.

The tannins in persimmons can reduce inflammation by acting against bacteria and reducing infections. Despite the sweet taste of the fruit, research shows that it can help control diabetes by preventing sudden spikes in blood sugar.

Persimmons can be eaten fresh, dried, or cooked and are often used in jellies, drinks, pies, curries, and puddings.

"Persimmon tastes like no other fruit: it's rich, spicy, and sweet at the same time," the nutritionist says.

As we wrote earlier, just a spoonful of this product will help to cope with insomnia and strengthen the immune system.

By the way, this miracle drink will help cleanse the body after the New Year holidays.
