Why you need to make DATES your BFF
Dates are amazing for your digestive system. As one of the most anti-parasitical foods on the planet, dates bind onto, destroy, and sweep away parasites; yeast, mold, and other fungus; heavy metals; unproductive bacteria; viruses; and other poisonous pathogens from the gut.
They're also an ideal food for people dealing with diabetes and hypoglycaemia, because they deliver vital glucose to the liver - addressing the very glucose loss that’s responsible for blood sugar issues. They’re also ideal for athletes and other active people, as the high potassium and fruit sugar content is perfect for refuelling the brain and muscles, which rely on glucose to power you through exercise.
Dates are rich in nearly 70 bioactive minerals that support the adrenal glands to help you handle life’s daily challenges. One of the most heart-healthy foods available, dates also contain a record-breaking, undiscovered amount of amino acids. Similar to what happens with bananas, the amino acids in dates, such as leucine, help elevate the fruit’s potassium to its highest potential in sustaining and fortifying muscles and nerves. This process also stops lactic acid from taking over the body when it’s under stress.
Dates are a warming food that expels dampness from organs such as the spleen and liver, though not to the point of creating unproductive dryness. Dates are also abundant in anti-cancerous properties, making them a must for anyone seeking disease prevention and optimal health.
