It has long been known that prunes are good for digestive system in particular the intestines. It not only stimulates digestion, but also contributes to weight loss. Now, this delicacy is advised to consume also with the aim of preventing bone diseases and reducing the risk of bone damage.
The composition of prunes contains many elements that are important for the normal state of bones. These are potassium, phosphorus, sodium, magnesium, calcium, cobalt. Entering regularly into the body, these elements in the complex increase the strength of the skeleton.
To get this effect, it is enough to consume 4-5 prunes several times a day. In this case, it is possible to protect the bones from leaching of important minerals. This process over time leads to an increase in bone fragility.
Experts observed two groups of women. Volunteers from the first ate prunes every day. Those in the second group consumed dried apples daily. The rest of the women ate the usual foods. According to the results of the experiment, it turned out that the participants in the first group had increased bone strength compared with women from the second group.
The conclusion of scientists was unequivocal: ideally, middle-aged women should eat dried plums every day. This will save you from fractures and help to lose weight.
In addition to the properties already mentioned, dried plums have a diuretic and choleretic effect. There is a lot of iron in the drain, so it is useful for anemia. And due to the presence of antioxidants in their composition, one more “bonus” action is noted - active protection against the aging of the body.
