Dates benefits are various because they are a great source of minerals as calcium, iron, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, zinc and magnesium. They are a great source of vitamins too as vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin B6, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, and folate. Dates are high in fiber and they are great for digestion and relieving symptoms of constipation.
They are great for our bones and strength because they contain manganese, copper, and selenium. Dates are also very good for the nervous system and the heart and they are an energy booster and that is why they are great for anemia.
I write this post because dates are my favorite fruit and I eat them very often. I love dates because they are very sweet and I feel like I am eating a cake and not a fruit. And I know they are high in calories but they won’t make you gain weight if you eat them properly. Dates benefits motivated me to write this post and to eat more dates.
