It’s the end of the day and before I gatecrash on bed, I religiously take my food journal where I pen down whatever went into my lips during the day …well am doing so, so that my hips aren’t affected! And from today the new entrant in my food journal is DATES.

DATES are not only a rich source of energy; they also provide important minerals and dietary fiber per day. The significant amounts of minerals found in dates make it a super food for strengthening bones and fighting off painful diseases like osteoporosis. So eat your dates and give a boost to your bones!
Several vitamins are found in DATES. Among the most important vitamins are the B complex vitamins and C vitamins. B vitamins are known to help you keep a healthy skin, hair and muscle tone and therefore dates are a natural way to achieve this.
DATES have been traditionally recommended as a natural remedy for constipation. And in case you suffer from diarrhoea, then too dates are the best.
