Apricots and dried apricots

Dried apricots are a good Source of Vitamin A. 100g of dried apricots delivers 3600 UI of vitamin A (which is 120% of your RDA). This equates to 240 calories. Dried apricots contain vitamin A in the form of the carotenoid beta-carotene (your body can convert beta-carotene into vitamin A). Vitamin A supports vision and helps synthesize red blood cells.

Dried apricots are a very good source of iron that is useful to fight anaemia. This also contains copper that absorbs iron. Including dried apricots in your daily diet helps in haemoglobin production that can be useful for women who experience heavy flow during periods. Apricots are a good natural source of fiber, which is important for digestive health and plays a role in lipid metabolism.
