Reverse Osteoporosis with Dried Plums

That’s prunes- that of course is what a dried plum is!  And recent studies have shown that prunes have amazing health benefits, and also taste really good.

But the big news is that you can actually reverse osteoporosis within your bones by consuming prunes.  It has been thought that once the bones lose minerals, they cannot be regained.  Thus, people as they age, in particular women, but in men was well, gradually lose bone structure.  This sets you up for weak, easily breakable bones, and steadily weakening teeth as well.  Lose mineral structure in your spine, and you are looking at a lot of pain and disability- fall and break a hip; why many people never recover from that and become bedridden as a result. 

The prune (it has been rebranded as a ‘dried plum’ for marketing purposes), has a unique chemical property that can actually reverse this bone loss, so you body can lay down bone minerals that have already been lost!  This is huge, and alone makes including prunes in your diet on a regular basis a very smart practice. 

But, there is more- prunes, or dried plums as I’m sure you’ll call them from now on, also have the most antioxidants of any fruit!  And how important are antioxidants?  Antioxidants – defend our body against the damaging effects of free radicals.  It is now known that free radicals are associated with as many as 60 different diseases including heart disease, many forms for cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease, arthritis, stroke, allergies, chronic fatigue and aging in general.

So, save and strengthen your bones, while at the same time defending yourself against a plethora of diseases.  Eat prunes- if you’re like me, you love the taste, but you kind of forget about these dried little fruits when shopping by being distracted by the sexier types- the pineapples, the mangos, grapes, figs- whatever.  But now you know- 

Don’t be dumb, choose a dried plum!
