As you know, prunes help to regulate the human gastrointestinal tract. Some shy away from prunes because "they make you go!!", but I actually like having a bowel movement. Having a regular bowel movement lets me know that I have a healthy colon. A healthy colon means a healthy body.
And a healthy body may equal an overall healthy mood!
Here's a list of health benefits caused by eating prunes:
- Phenols, an antioxidant that is known to prevent oxygen-based damage to fats.
- Normalizes Blood Sugar
- Aids in Weight Loss
- Lowers Cholesterol
- Regular Bowel Movements & Intestinal Protection
- Increases Absorption of Iron
