Naturally, I love eating prunes. I have had a bag of dried prunes in the fridge for over a month now and thought to use them in my smoothies. For some odd reason, it never crossed my mind before.

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:
  1. Phenols, an antioxidant that is known to prevent oxygen-based damage to fats.
  2. Normalizes Blood Sugar
  3. Aids in Weight Loss
  4. Lowers Cholesterol
  5. Regular Bowel Movements & Intestinal Protection
  6. Increases Absorption of Iron
