GOOD FOR YOUR GUT, AND
NOW FOR YOUR BONES!
California Prunes are famous for their fibre, with 100g daily contributing to normal bowel function.
Now new research has shown they may help to support healthy bones too.
Prunes have zero fat and salt, and contain only naturally occurring sugars, with no added sugar. High in vitamin K, they’re also a source of manganese, both of which support healthy bones. Prunes also contain copper, which helps protect cells from oxidative stress.
Studies have also shown that reducing saturated fat consumption contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels; so it’s good news that prunes are saturated fat-free. In addition, they’re high in potassium, which contributes to the maintenance of normal blood pressure.
