For this reason, dates are considered the “healthiest fruit in the world”.

Few people know that dates are among the most powerful fruits in the world thanks to their healing and medicinal properties, which have been used for centuries in both the East and the West.

Dates have really useful properties: they fill you up even if you only eat a few of them, they contain numerous vitamins and are a perfect source of natural sugar.

In addition, they are an excellent source of iron. If you suffer from iron deficiency, you should try incorporating dates into your diet before consuming “synthetic” iron. 100 grams of dates contain about 0.90 grams of iron… about 11% of the recommended daily allowance of iron.

The vitamin A, lutein and zeaxanthin contained in dates make them a real gift for our eyes. People of a certain age can really benefit from this fruit.

Dates can help pregnant women and make childbirth easier. Medical research has shown that women who consumed dates two months before giving birth experienced less pain.
