Japanese apple (khaki) is an excellent fruit against malignant diseases, strengthens the body and stops aging. This fruit provides 80% of the daily dose of vitamin C. However, Japanese apple is not recommended for people with stomach ulcers (or people who have recently had stomach ulcers) because it contains tannin. The use of Japanese apples is not recommended for diabetics and people prone to acute inflammatory conditions of the kidneys and bladder. It is also not recommended for people prone to digestive problems and indigestion.
Japanese khaki or persimmon (Latin Dios-pyros) looks like a tomato. After you cut the apple in half then you will see juicy flesh with a tempting and sweet taste. Japanese apple has an unusually mild and sweet taste, but this fruit is both interesting and healing. The Japanese apple has its roots in Japan, although today it is grown throughout Europe and other parts of the world. It contains large amounts of potassium, magnesium and carotene, which are effective preventive measures against cancer. The soft part of the apple contains up to 15% fructose and glucose and has a high content of vitamins A, C and P (which maintain the elasticity of blood vessels and the health of the cardiovascular system). This fruit contains a lot of protein, carbohydrates, organic acids, calcium, manganese, iron and sodium. Japanese apple is on the same level with green tea in terms of antioxidant content. The above elements are the best protection against cancers, inflammatory conditions and infections.
This tasty and healing fruit contains pectins that actively affect the intestinal microflora and have a binding effect (they absorb all toxins). The large amount of fiber in the fruit improves the work of the digestive system. Apple contains iron, which is especially useful for people with anemia. That is why it is also recommended for pregnant women. In case of cough and cold, rinse the throat with the juice of one whole ripe fruit dissolved in 100 ml of water. For eating, use only ripe fruits. When buying, choose softer, bright orange fruits with dry leaves. Due to the high content of tannins, unripe apples have an unfavorable digestive effect, ie they cause diarrhea, while the ripe fruit helps to fight against poor digestion.
