Health Benefits of Organic Angelino Plums
1) High in Fiber – Organic dried Angelino plums are a great source of fiber in both soluble and insoluble forms. Soluble fiber attracts water to form a gel and slow down digestion. This process reduces the uptake of sugar and cholesterol into the bloodstream, which helps stabilize blood sugar levels and may lower LDL “bad” cholesterol levels. Insoluble fiber is important for digestive health. This type of fiber adds bulk to the diet and keeps the digestive system running smoothly.
2) Antioxidant Powerhouse – Angelino prunes are a treasure trove of antioxidants, the protective compounds that help cells defend themselves against harmful free radicals. Due to normal cell metabolism and environmental toxins, free radicals accumulate in the body and if left unchecked, can lead to serious conditions like heart disease, stroke, etc. As a natural source of antioxidants, organic Angelino plums are an excellent food for protecting cell health.
3) Good Source of Minerals – A serving of these delicious Angelino prunes not only provides plenty of fiber and antioxidants, but they are also a great source of vitamins A and K, magnesium, potassium, and boron. The trace element boron is known for its bone-building effects. Research from Florida State University indicates that eating 100 grams of dried plums every day for three months can reduce the risk for osteoporosis, a disease characterized by bone loss.
