One of the best kept secrets on earth is the prune. Most of us associate prunes with old people (no offense). I remember my grandma always kept a pint of prune juice in the refrigerator. However as an adult I discovered the benefits of prunes on my own. Here are some of the amazing things prunes can do:

  • Excellent antioxident

  • Loaded in fiber and the sorbitol sugar helps regulate digestion

  • Helps prevent cancer because of its high betacarotene content.

  • Vitamins in prunes increase vitality and skin clarity

  • Aids in weight loss

There are numerous other benefits to prunes. I remember reading this story about this older woman who looked amazing and in an article she talked about her secret being prunes. So incorporate this super food into your daily diet today!
