Prunes – Amazing Health Benefits
In the last fifty years, prunes have earned a reputation more related to power pooping than all the rest of their amazing health benefits. But it was not always so.
Prunes have been enjoyed for thousands of years, but it was only recently that some of the benefits were acknowledged by science. Now the dried fruit is known to prevent aging and osteoporosis, and when eaten for as little as 14 days, causes the levels of enzymes that protect bone to soar! Prunes (dried plums) are packed with vitamin K and boron, both essential to bone health.
Researchers found that prunes actually have more than twice the antioxidant capacity of other high ranking foods, such as blueberries and raisins, and yes, they really help to keep you ‘regular’ 🙂
