If you love sweetness on a Friday night, something new and exciting, or something that will give you energy and maybe a little jump on your stage, then you’re probably someone who likes a good date or even a few. And whether it was a romantic date with another person or an edible sweet fruit, it didn’t matter. Dessert dates or dessert dates are both great and healthy for body and mind. However, for this article we are talking about date palm fruits grown in many tropical areas of the world.
A study conducted by the Department of food and nutrition Sciences found that those who consumed dates improved colon health because dates increased the growth of good bacteria by inhibiting the growth of colon cancer cells.
Also, if you eat three of these soft and squishy fruits every day for a week, you may want to consider making a more regular appearance because the following things are likely to happen to your body:
1.Reducing the risk of colon cancer
In addition to ensuring that foods move through the digestive system at a healthy pace, dates also ensure that the gut itself is healthy and free of harmful bacteria. And when the digestive system and intestines work well, so does the colon, leading to a reduced risk of colon cancer.
2. You’ll have quick, long lasting energy
Dates contain the natural sugars, glucose, fructose and sucrose that will give you a quick burst of energy when you need it. And unlike energy bars or drinks, dates contain other healthy components like fiber, potassium, magnesium, vitamins and antioxidants that will keep those levels up, and not send you quickly crashing down.
3. Your digestive health will improve
Correct amounts and types of fiber can benefit your digestive health by preventing constipation and encouraging regular bowel movements. Dates are definitely the right type of fiber to do the job. In fact, a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition found that people who took 7 dates a day for 21 days showed an improvement in their stool frequency and an increase in bowel movement compared to the time they did not eat dates.
If you want to keep things in your digestive system running nicely and regularly, dates are just something to do. In just one cup of dates or dates, you will get 12 grams of fiber. That’s 48 percent of your daily recommended intake!
4.Treatment of hemorrhoids
Hemorrhoids are veins in your anus and rectum that have become inflamed and swollen. This is often caused by constipation, which leads to deformation in the area at the end of the digestive tract. It is a terrible and often very painful condition that can fortunately be treated and even reversed by changing the diet to reduce constipation.
Many doctors recommend a high-fiber diet, and this includes dates to help things move together so that your hemorrhoids can heal.
5.You could be smarter
Dates contain vitamin B6, which improves brain function by helping the body make serotonin and norepinephrine. Serotonin, in turn, regulates mood, and norepinephrine helps your body cope with stress. Conversely, studies have shown that low levels of vitamin B6 are associated with depression.
6. Cure a broken heart, aka, improve your cardiovascular system
Sometimes all it takes is several dates in a row over a long period of time to cure a broken heart.
It’s true. The potassium contained in this seemingly magical little fruit has been found lowering LDL (bad cholesterol) that causes blockages in the arteries that lead to stroke and even heart attack. A study of older women found that high potassium intake is associated with a lower risk of stroke and ischemic stroke and mortality.
So, invest in a date — even several over a long period of time — and you will find long lasting health that could very well lead to your happily ever after.
