4 Health Benefits of Organic Dates
1) Potassium Powerhouse: Organic dates are chock-full of potassium, the mineral that protects the heart by keeping sodium levels in check and preventing high blood pressure. A 1-cup serving of dates contains up to three times as much potassium as a 1-cup serving of bananas.
2) High in Fiber: Every 2.4 ounces of dates provides six grams of dietary fiber. Most Americans do not meet the daily recommended intake for fiber (25 to 30 grams a day from food), so a handful of dates can help you get more fiber in your diet. Fiber is essential for a healthy digestive system and it can be beneficial for lowering bad cholesterol.
3) Mighty Minerals: Stock up on minerals during snack-time! Dates supply important minerals like calcium, magnesium and copper. These minerals support everything from the health of bones and teeth to the production of red blood cells.
4) B-complex Vitamins: Are you getting your B Vitamins? Dates are a good source of the B-complex vitamins known as pyridoxine, niacin, pantothenic acid and riboflavin. These essential vitamins assist the body by helping to convert food into energy.
