Fiber is like the broom of the body; it rids the body of toxic substances and helps bowel movements. Rich in many plant-based antioxidants, apricots are an ideal source for vitamin A and a good source for vitamin C, copper and dietary fiber. Dried apricots contain more potassium than fresh apricots. Together with sodium, potassium regulates intracellular and extracellular water levels. While dieting, potassium plays a significant role in maintaining a healthy blood pressure. Dried apricots also contribute to eye health thanks to their carotenoid content, to general health thanks to their antioxidant content and to balancing blood pressure thanks to their potassium content.
