Fill up on vitamins and minerals with dried fruit! A real asset to maintain good health on a daily basis. There are two types of dried fruits: naturally dried fruits (nuts: almond, peanut, hazelnut, walnut, etc.) and dehydrated fruits (apricot, fig, date, pineapple, grape, etc.). On the benefits side, the list is long! The almond, the most famous, is rich in fatty acids, vitamin E, B1, B6 and B9, but also in magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and iron. It even helps you lose weight, lower cholesterol and fight diabetes. Raisins control osteoporosis with their boron content and dried apricots control hypertension with low sodium and high potassium. Dates, on the other hand, give you energy to fight against bar blows and prunes have an anti-constipation effect thanks to the fibres and sorbitol that help intestinal transit through a laxative action. Finally, nuts help to fight bad cholesterol.
