Perhaps the biggest health benefits of fresh apricots is that they are good sources of dietary fiber. Eating 1 cup of this sliced fruit clocks in at only 79 calories but still provides 27% of your daily value of vitamin C, 13% of dietary fiber (3.3 grams), and 63% of vitamin A. As far as their antioxidants are concerned, their ORAC value pf around 1,000 is relatively low for a fruit. To put it in perspective, most apples are between 2,000 and 4,000. Many berries are even higher than that.
