Prunes for…. Bones?

No joke! A new study in the British Journal of Nutrition showed that among postmenopausal women, 10 prunes a day improved bone mineral density significantly because of their ability to suppress the rate of bone resorption (the breakdown of bone) which tends to exceed the rate of new bone growth as people age. Daily prunes may be a great way to prevent osteoporosis or fractures. Start with 2 or 3 and work your way up to 10.
