ANNA AND SARAH FANCY MEDJOOL DATES
The date fruit is one of the sweetest fruits around and also happens to come in many different varieties. Although dates can be eaten fresh, they can be also consumed dried. Whether fresh or dry, the health benefits of dates are still just as plentiful. Dates are a good source of various vitamins and minerals. They are good source of energy, sugar and fiber. Calcium, iron, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, zinc, and magnesium are the essential minerals found in dates. They also contain vitamins such as thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, vitamin A and vitamin K.
Here are some health benefits of dates.
Promoting Digestive Health, Relieving Constipation: Fiber is essential for promoting colon health and making for regular bowel movements. Dates have high levels of soluble fiber, which is essential in promoting healthy bowel movements and the comfortable passage of food through the intestinal tract, which can relieve symptoms of constipation.
Boosting Heart Health: In addition to promoting colon health, fiber is also known to boost heart health. Dates are a rich source of potassium, which studies have shown to reduce the risk of stroke and other heart related diseases. Furthermore, they are suggested as a healthy and delicious way to reduce the levels of LDL cholesterol in the body, which is a major contributing factor heart attacks, heart disease, and stroke.
Bone Health and Strength: The significant amounts of minerals found in dates make it a super food for strengthening bones and fighting off painful and debilitating diseases like osteoporosis. Date contains selenium, manganese, copper, and magnesium, all of which are integral to healthy bone development and strength, particularly as people begin to age and their bones gradually weaken.
Nervous System Health: The vitamins present in dates make it an ideal boost to nervous system health and functionality. Potassium is one of the prime ingredients in promoting a healthy and responsive nervous system, and it also improves the speed and alertness of brain activity.
Anemia: Dates have a high mineral content, which is beneficial for many different health conditions, but their impressive levels of iron make them a perfect dietary supplement for people suffering from anemia. The high level of iron balances out the inherent lack of iron in anemic patients, increasing energy and strength, while decreasing feelings of fatigue and sluggishness.
Allergies: One of the most interesting facets of dates is the presence of organic sulfur in them. This is not a very common element to find in foods, but it does have a worthwhile amount of health benefits, including the reduction of allergic reactions and seasonal allergies.
Energy Booster: Dates are high in natural sugars like glucose, fructose, and sucrose. Therefore, they are the perfect snack for an immediate burst of energy. Many people around the world use dates for a quick afternoon snack when they are feeling lethargic or sluggish.
Anti-Inflammatory: Dates are rich in magnesium – a mineral known for its anti-inflammatory benefits.
Reduced Blood Pressure: Magnesium has been shown to help lower blood pressure – and again, dates are full of the mineral. Additionally, potassium is another mineral in dates that has several functions within the body, aiding with the proper workings of the heart and helping to reduce blood pressure.
