Protagonists of the holiday season, i dates they should be eaten all year round and the reason is soon said: his Excellency the date would be able to stimulate the immune system, keep blood pressure at bay and keep tumors at bay.

Typical of Mediterranean Africa and Western Asian countries, rich in iron, vitamins and minerals, dates are the focus of a review of research published in recent years carried out by Qassim University, in Saudi Arabia, and published sull’International Journal of clinical and experimental medicine.

The review found that dates contain high levels of antioxidants, which prevent free radicals from damaging cells, a process that could lead to the development of cancer. In addition, these fruits give a good supply of polyphenols, other types of antioxidants that reduce the prevalence and mortality rate from cancer, and the so-called beta-glucans, substances capable of reducing the growth of tumors.

And, if that's not enough, i dates they contain a lot potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, sodium and selenium, all useful in stimulating the immune system. Also present are the B vitamins, vitamins A, K and J and various amino acids (lysine, arginine, alanine, glycine, leucine, lysine, etc.), able to give our body a certain amount of proteins.

In any case, remember that over 60% of dried dates are made up of sugars (dextrose, fructose, maltose and sucrose), so moderate their consumption. Also because dates, especially dried ones, provide a lot of calories (about 280 for every 100 grams of fruit).

But, according to scholars, the combination of minerals typical of dates helps metabolize precisely the high sugar contents so as not to turn them into fat. So eat the right amount every day: fresh or dried dates are also a panacea!
