Prunes have, for generations, been a family ‘remedy’ for constipation and good bowel health. Now, however, it’s official!
The EU Commission has finally authorised that, yes, prunes are ‘good for digestive health‘!
The National Diet and Nutrition Survey tells us that 8 out of 10 adults in the UK don’t eat the 25g of fibre recommended for normal bowel function, but if you eat just three prunes you will get around 3.9g of fibre as well as one of your five-a-day.
They are also a good source of potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin K, copper and manganese.
You also get good levels of fibre from vegetables, whole grains and legumes.
If you have friends or family who are interested in health and nutrition please do forward this to them using the Social Media buttons below.
