One of the most popular dried fruits on the planet, prunes have been used since ancient times as a source of nutrients and a delicious delicacy. Prunes are a valuable source of dietary fiber (especially insoluble fiber), which plays an important role in the regulation of intestinal activity. Fiber improves intestinal peristalsis, which is important for the harmonious work of the whole organism. Adding prunes to the diet is an easy way to increase the body's antioxidant potential and prevent the development of cancer and a number of chronic diseases, reduce weight, and slow down the aging process of the body.
Prunes are rich in minerals (phosphorus, potassium, magnesium) and vitamin K, which are essential for strong bones. Also, prunes are able to reduce the concentration of cholesterol in blood plasma and, as a result, prevent the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases.
