Prunes for Strong Bones?

I happen to love prunes.  They taste like candy to me.  But not everyone feels the same way.  In fact, prunes have taken such a bad rap that now if you look for them in the market you may not find them.

What you MAY find is dried plums.  That is their newest name.  Regardless.  They still taste yummy.

Potassium and boron are two of the components of strong bones and guess what?  Prunes have lots of those two minerals.  Prunes also have Vitamin K and lots of great fiber.

Studies indicate that eating 5 to 10 of these lovely dried plums each day will help you have stronger bones.  Don’t eat them all at once but space them out over the day.

Seriously, please don’t eat 10 at once.

Trust me.
