Benefits of Lychees
Lychee fruit is a good source of potassium, a mineral that works with sodium to maintain a healthy balance of water in your body, keeping your blood pressure at a safe level. Although a cup of raw lychee has 324 milligrams of potassium, giving you less than 10 percent of your recommended daily intake, half as much dried lychee provides 1,054 milligrams of that nutrient, nearly a third of your daily value. It also provides 1.62 milligrams of iron, 40 milligrams of magnesium and 172 milligrams of phosphorous, giving you 20 to 30 percent of your RDI for each of those minerals.
