Red dates are rich in proteins, fats, carbohydrate, calcium, iron, fiber, organic acids, and Vitamin D. A daily intake of red dates has many advantages. Here are a few:
Support liver function
The carbohydrate, fats, and proteins in red dates are nutrients that enable the liver to produce haptoglobin and improve overall liver function.
Maintain a healthy appearance
Vitamin B in red dates can stimulate blood circulation and help maintain healthy skin and shiny hair. Consuming raw dates can also inhibit the production of melanin and freckles.
Stimulate the production of blood
Red dates can increase the level of oxygen in the blood and improve your immune function. They can also relieve anemia.
Nourish the hair
Red dates can nourish the hair and help to prevent hair loss.
Maintain blood vessels
Red dates can maintain blood vessels and improve the health of the heart muscle, and, in some cases, male sexual function.
Improve bone health
Dates are rich in selenium, manganese, copper, and magnesium, and can improve bone health and help prevent osteoporosis.
Many people like to eat peanuts because they are delicious, but actually, peanuts are called “long-life nuts” because they are extraordinary nutritious. Per ounce, the proteins and fats in peanuts exceed that of most meats and eggs, thus, peanuts are also called the “vegetable meat.”
The advantages of eating peanuts are as follows:
Maintain a healthy heart
The fatty acid in peanuts, together with other ingredients, can decrease low-density lipoprotein (bad cholesterol) to maintain a healthy heart.
Control blood sugar
Studies reveal that replacing one serving of meat (about 30 g) with one serving of peanuts (about 8 g) everyday can decrease the risk of diabetes by 21 percent. In addition, peanuts can decrease the absorption of carbohydrates, so eating peanuts in the morning can help to maintain daily blood sugar at a low level.
Lower blood pressure
Fats in peanuts can help break down the cholesterol in the liver, which can help prevent atherosclerosis and lower blood pressure.
Supply needed calcium
Peanuts are rich in calcium, and eating peanuts everyday can help improve physical development and prevent osteoporosis.
Protect the eyes
Peanuts are rich in proteins, which can protect the eyes if consumed frequently.
