Raspberries are known to help control weight and keep you full for longer. Peaches are also loaded with health benefits and in Chinese medicine they are called "longevity peaches," meaning they help prolong your life. There is modern day science to back that up too. Peaches are loaded with potassium and potassium is known to help prolong your life as well as help fight fatigue, anxiety, muscle weakness, skin problems, and poor memory.
