Dates consist of approximately 70% natural sugars, mainly fructose and glucose in equal proportion, which makes them a rich source of energy.
The remaining 20% is occupied by protein, fiber and various micronutrients such as potassium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus.
Better digestive health like irritable bowel syndrome, constipation or in many other digestive problems, dates will help you. They contain fiber that has been shown to reduce the risk of colon cancer and is even recommended in hemorrhoid treatments.
They work as pain relievers, because they contain a lot of magnesium (which has an anti-inflammatory effect) they can relieve pain and reduce swelling.
The magnesium in dates has another function, as it helps to reduce hypertension. Also, the potassium they contain helps the heart function and lowers blood pressure. In addition, research has shown that magnesium reduces the risk of stroke by about 10% for every hundred milligrams you consume on a daily basis. The research in question was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and shows that dates in particular reduce the risk of stroke.
Finally, based on research carried out, they contribute to a healthier pregnancy by helping in a gentler delivery and weight loss afterwards.
