Dried Prunes

Prunes are dried plums that are midnight purple with a wrinkly texture and a rich, sweet flavour. The small fruit is well-known for its incredible ability to relieve constipation because they are a natural laxative (something that triggers bowel movement). 

Dried prunes are great anti-inflammatories, aiding wound healing and supporting a well-functioning immune system. They are also fantastic for strengthening bones and heart health and are high in potassium, iron, fibre, vitamin B6 and magnesium.

Nutritional benefits of dried prunes

There are a wealth of advantages to regularly consuming dried prunes, and we’ve listed some of our favourite health benefits below:

High in fibre - It’s vital to get your daily fibre intake for a thriving digestive system. A portion of prunes contributes to one of your five-a-day and gives you an excellent dose of fibre.

Source of iron- Iron enables oxygen to travel around your bloodstream for durable and effective essential organs, like kidneys, lungs, liver and heart. Iron transportation also bolsters your immune system to decrease your chances of catching a cold or falling ill. If that isn’t enough, having a sustainable amount of iron increases your energy levels - perfect for those long work days.

Full of potassium - You need the mineral potassium for muscle function, for example, exercising and writing. It also balances fluid in every cell for them to work at maximum capacity.

Bursting with B6- Your body needs vitamin B6 to convert food into energy. It also protects your immune system against harmful pathogens and regulates fat and sugar. So, eat a handful of prunes for higher energy and defence against disease. 

Contains magnesium - You need magnesium for a high-quality sleep cycle. Have you ever felt tired but not sleepy? It could be because your sleep hormone melatonin is imbalanced. Magnesium stimulates melatonin, so you feel like you’re about to nod off and get a good night’s rest.
