Prunes are good for building strong bones


Eating 10 (dried) prunes a day will slow down bone loss that occurs naturally.

A study by a Dr Bahram Arjmandi from Florida State University, found that women who ate prunes over 12 months have significantly higher bone mineral density (BMD) in their bodies.

A follow-up study from the same group of women 5 years later showed that those women who ate prunes in the study, still maintained a higher BMD scores even the women did not consume prunes regularly in the 5 years since.
