Why starting your day with dates is a pretty good idea!

Feb 11, 2021 07:26 IST

Say goodbye to starting your day with a hot cuppa tea or coffee! After long hours of rest, it's considered best to begin the day with a mini snack and what's better than a few dates to get your metabolism running? Dates are oozing with benefits, let your body reap them.

Fruits of the date palm trees, dates have a fantastic nutritional profile that is often overlooked. Loaded with fibre, they contain glucose and fructose, which are natural sugars found in fruits and provide instant energy. They even keep those nasty hunger pangs at bay.

Their insoluble and soluble fibre content means they enhance digestive juices and improve digestion. But remember, they're high in calories. Don't go overboard.

Several studies note the inclination of the fruit in preventing bone-related issues like osteoporosis, may be attributed to dates being rich in phosphorous, calcium, potassium and magnesium. Some experts even find dates beneficial in managing diabetes due to their low glycemic index and rich antioxidant and fibre properties.

Add the dried fruit to your milkshake, slice them onto your kheer, munch on them as a snack but take note of how many you eat. It is most beneficial when consumed in moderation!
