On the quest to alkalize and detox as much as possible in preparation for the increased cancer risk with the 5G Technology and cell phone radiation. that is being rolled out very soon. I recently discovered a new appreciation for dates as I learned about the many health benefits. Here is a short list of ten reasons why you might find them beneficial as well.
10 Healthy Reasons To Eat More Dates
Dates are very healthy. They are rich in fiber, vitamins, and anti-oxidants. The benefits of eating dates regularly range from improved digestion to reduced risk of disease. Eating a few dates per day may replace the need for many supplements.
- A Natural Sweetener
Dates have fructose which is a type of natural sugar found in fruits. That’s what makes dates so delicious with caramel flavor. They can be put in smoothies or can be eaten as a treat instead of unhealthy desserts.
- Healthy Bones
Dates are rich in calcium, manganese, copper, and magnesium, all of which are required for bone health.
- Healthier Eyes
Dates are rich in vitamin A which is really good for the eyes. Vitamin A protects the eyes from oxidative stress and loss of night vision.
- Weight Loss
Dates are rich in fiber and help to detoxify the colon. A cleaner colon improves all functions of the body including the ability of the body to maintain a healthy weight. Although dates are higher in calories than most other fruit, a few dates per day can replace the sugar cravings for unhealthy snacks.
- Younger Skin
Dates contain vitamins C and E which are anti-oxidants that promote skin’s elasticity and collagen production.
- Heart Health
Dates are rich in potassium which is really good for maintaining healthy blood pressure and a healthy heart.
- Hair Growth
Dates promote hair growth due to being rich in Iron. Iron is necessary for hemoglobin production in red blood cells which carry oxygen to the body including the scalp. More circulation in the scalp means better hair growth. Iron deficiency is a major cause of hair loss, especially in women.
- More Energy
Dates are high in simple sugars: glucose and fructose. They are a great option for a quick energy and motivation boost before workouts.
- Healthy Pregnancy
Pregnant women need about 300 more calories per day. Instead of eating foods that are high in calories and low on nutrition, dates offer the calories and are dense with nutrients to support a healthy pregnancy.
- A Great Snack
Dates make a healthy nutritious snack for children and adults. Cutting dates in half and stuffing them with peanut butter or almond butter tastes divine especially with a cup of Red Detox Tea.
I used to eat dates once in a while, but now I want to eat them often because of all the health benefits. I hope you enjoy them as well.
Wishing you abundant health.
