  • ​One medium persimmon has about 100 calories and 6 grams of fibre. Most of the fibre is in the form of soluble fibre which can help keep blood sugar stable and keep hunger at bay.
  • Persimmons are an excellent source of vitamins A and C. One medium persimmon has 55% of the vitamin A and 20% of the vitamin C most people need in a day. Both of these vitamins are antioxidants that help strengthen the immune system. Antioxidants can help prevent or repair free radical damage, which may reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease.
  • Persimmons are an excellent source of manganese, a mineral that helps keep blood sugar stable. Manganese is needed for healthy brain and nerve function.
