Plums are a sweet, juicy, low-calorie fruit that are a powerhouse in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. Plums are an excellent source of Vitamin A, C, B-6, & K. Plums are also rich in minerals such as iron, manganese, potassium, phosphorous, and magnesium. The magnesium in plums works as a natural tranquilizer which can sooth your nerves and also work as a catalyst to reinstate your natural REM sleep.
Some of the benefits from eating plums on a regular basis include improved vision, radiant skin, healthy brain functioning, regulated digestive tract, reduced inflammation, resistance against colds and infections, and improved metabolism. Plums are especially good for digestive disorders such as IBS, gastritis, and constipation.
They are also excellent for autoimmune diseases such as chronic fatigue syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, COPD, fibromyalgia, raynaud’s, cardiopathy, lupus, vertigo, and colitis. For best flavor, wait until the plum has fully ripened and is very soft to the touch. Plums come in a variety of colors from dark purple to yellow and red and can range from sugary sweet to tart and rich. They are an excellent addition to salads, smoothies, and juices.
