Superstar Fruit Achieves International Status

Plums, known by their more familiar name of “prunes,” are grown almost entirely in the U.S., with 70 percent of the world’s supply coming from California. The multiple health benefits of plums have established them as a superstar in the category of fruit. They are a rich source of fiber and contain important nutrients including potassium, vitamin C and K, and are rich in minerals including iron. They also include a compound that has high antioxidant activity. The antioxidant content of fresh plums doubles when they become prunes.

A Great Health And Beauty Aid

Over the years, a number of studies have demonstrated that including prunes into the daily diet can:

  • Increased bone health—particularly for post-menopausal women and a growing population of at risk men (approximately 12 million)
  • Reduce LDL cholesterol
  • Helps protect against some forms of cancer
  • Decreases colon cancer risk factors
  • Reduce the severity of inflammatory conditions such as asthma, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
  • The soluble fiber of prunes helps normalize blood sugar levels and can play a valuable role in the prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes
  • Natural appetite suppressant
  • Four prunes a day is as good for your skin as any anti-wrinkle cream!
