"Eating 100 g of prunes a day contributes to normal bowel function and may also help overall digestive health"
Eating 100 g of prunes a day contributes to normal bowel function and may also help overall digestive health(1). Prunes have also been linked to the prevention and reversal of bone loss, especially in postmenopausal women(2).
They’re also high in fiber, potassium, vitamin A and vitamin K, which contributes to normal blood clotting and the maintenance of normal bones (1,3,4).
