Moreover, it is rich in minerals such as calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium and sodium. Also very rich in fructose and therefore frequently used in diets, benefits of date are not limited with these. Here are the benefits of date, which is considered one of the most healthiest sources of sugar, proving that we should eat dates not only in Ramadan but also every season!

 

Helps keep the human body fit and healthy

Date contains more than 10 elements necessary for us to keep fit and healthy. So much so that scientists claim humans can live healthily on only date and water for years.

Supports the immune system

Date supports the immune system with the antioxidants, selenium and Vitamin C in its content. It eliminates harmful bacteria and germs from the body. Magnesium mineral in its content reduces the rate of potential infections in the body. 

 

Beneficial for the nervous system
