8 Health Benefits of Dates

1. Loaded in Iron

Iron is especially useful for those with anemia, pregnant women or children. It is enough to eat 100g dates which have 0.90 mg iron. This is 11% of the recommended dose on a daily basis. It is iron that cares about the red blood cells and hemoglobin, providing a better flow of oxygen to the blood.

2. Prevent Diarrhea

The potassium is an important mineral that prevents the diarrhea by soothing the intestines and belly flora, triggering more healthy bacteria.

3. Relieve Constipation

The soothing properties of dates can relieve constipation and diarrhea. For that reason, put some dates in water for the whole night and in the morning drink their juice in order to speed up good digestion. It would have a mild and laxative effects.

4. Balance body weight

Eat dates on an empty stomach to stop excess fat issue. They will help you balance your weight because they have 0 cholesterol, but the level of sugar is there, so be careful.

5. Regulate cholesterol

Dates regulate the LDL or so called bad cholesterol by cleaning the blood vessels and preventing any blood clots.

6. Strengthen the Heart

Soak the dates in water during the night. In the morning strain them and remove the seeds. You can further blend and eat the seeds.

7. Regulate Blood Pressure

Those who suffer from hypertension should consume dates a lot because they have 0 sodium and are rich in potassium. Only 5-6 dates have even 80mg magnesium, a mineral that spreads the blood vessels and improve the blood flow. About 370 mg of magnesium will lower the blood pressure.

8. Prevent Stroke

As we mentioned before, the high level of potassium improves the nervous system and prevents any strokes. So, if your potassium intake is 400mg daily, you do not have any need to worry.

UN FAO: Food prices jump in January.

Published

on

Food prices rose in January, and has become stronger for vegetable oils and sugar, the United Nations food agency said on Thursday.

The Food and Agriculture Organisation’s food price index, which measures monthly changes for a basket of cereals, oilseeds, dairy products, meat and sugar, averaged 164.8 points last month against 161.8 in December.

In spite of the rise, the index was still 2.2 per cent below its January 2018 level.



The FAO dairy price index jumped 7.2 per cent from December’s value, ending seven months of declines.

FAO said limited export supplies from Europe, caused by strong internal demand, was the main driving force behind the increase.

FAO’s vegetable oil price index rose 4.3 per cent from the previous month, while its sugar index rose 1.3 per cent and its cereal index made marginal gains on December.

The meat price index was largely unchanged.

FAO lifted its latest world cereal production forecast for 2018 to 2.611 billion tonnes, slightly higher than the December reading, reflecting upward revisions for maize, wheat and rice.

“Much of the projected growth is associated with expected increases in Europe, where beneficial weather has so far shored up yield prospects while also sowings are forecast to expand, largely driven by attractive prices,” FAO said.

Cells that could prevent obesity, diabetes, hypertension found by American scientists.

Published

on

An American scientists has discovered a group of cells in the small intestine that slows down metabolism and increase fat accumulation.

The study published on Wednesday in the journal Nature  may lend a clue to prevent and treat obesity, diabetes and hypertension.



Researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital in the US found that mice lacking those cells called intraepithelial T lymphocytes or natural IELs could burn fat and sugar without gaining weight.

When those cells are present, they suppress a hormone that speeds up metabolism and conserves more energy it gets from food.

Such a mechanism used to be an evolutionary advantage when food was scarce in ancient time, but “with the food so abundant,this energy-saving mechanism can backfire and lead to unhealthy outcomes,” said the paper’s lead researcher Filip Swirski from Massachusetts General Hospital.

Swirski’s study can eventually contribute to cardiovascular disease and other metabolic ailments.
