Personally, I don't think dates are appreciated enough. For too long people have considered this healthy fruit as nothing more than just a sweet snack.

But it turns out that there are great reasons to start putting dates into your daily menu.

Dates are rich with nutrients - including seven types of vitamins and 10 minerals like vitamin C, vitamin A, some vitamins B, calcium and iron.

And, according to researchers at the Technion institute in Israel, half a glass of pomegranate juice with three dates a day provide excellent protection against cardiovascular diseases.

Still not convinced? Here are 7 reasons why you should start eating more dates.

1. They raise your energy levels

I like this

Dates are easy to digest and provide fast energy to the body, according to organicfacts.

Like nuts, dates are a wonderful snack. The sugar and fiber content in the dates provide energy for a long time. And at the same time, the vitamins in dates stimulate brain activity.

2. They fight atherosclerosis

I like this

Researchers in Israel have concluded that a combination of dates and pomegranate juice provides excellent protection against atherosclerosis - a thickening of the arteries which can cause heart attack or stroke.

The high nutrient concentration that helps fight atherosclerosis is in the dates' nucleus, which you can grind and eat. But the fruit itself provides excellent protection as well, according to the researchers.

3. They strengthen the liver

Dates are a natural source of magnesium, which is good for healthy cells and proper functioning of the liver.

4. Improves vision

I like this

Dates are rich in vitamin A, which is essential for eye health. Vitamin A is also important for skin function and mucous membrane.

Do you suffer from night blindness or have trouble seeing in the dark? The main cause could be vitamin A deficiency, so try eating a few dates a day. Your eyes will thank you!

5. Improves digestion

The nicotinic acid found in dates provides protection against digestive problems. Regular consumption of dates increases the growth of the good bacteria that the stomach needs for effective and good functioning.

Dates are also rich in fiber content that have a mild laxative effect, which helps those suffering from constipation.

6. Relieves pain

I like this

It may sound strange, but the magnesium found in dates can relieve pain and reduce swelling. And since magnesium is also a muscle relaxant, it can also relieve headaches caused by stress.

7. Better sleep

Try eating dates for an hour before going to bed. They are rich in amino acid tryptophan, which produces serotonin and allows you to go into sleep more easily and calmly.
