High blood pressure: The cheap sweet treat that lowers deadly hypertension

Prunes are good sources of:

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin K
  • Iron
  • Manganese
  • Copper
  • Vitamin B6
  • Potassium.

Aside from research pointing towards its beneficial effects on the heart muscle, the antioxidants that prunes contain may help maintain healthy bone density.

Rich in neochlorogenic acid (3-caffeoylquinic acid) and chlorogenic acid (5-caffeoylquinic acid) – two antioxidants – prunes can help lower blood glucose.

Too many prunes, however, can increase the risk of diarrhoea, so do eat them sensibly.
