Date, a food we all know. We maximum like to see it from the religious view. Most of Bangladeshi Muslims keep dates as a vital Iftari item. But very few know about the benefits of eating dates.

The nutritional benefits of eating dates are many. Just one 3.5 ounce serving has about 20% of your daily requirement for potassium along with 7 grams of fiber, 2 grams of protein, and several types of antioxidants. Dates also contain a nice amount of copper, manganese, vitamin B6, magnesium, and iron.

So try eating just 2 of them every day for one week and see what happens to your body. Let's know about some impacts of date on your body-

Better Digestion
Fiber is a critical component of healthy digestion despite the fact that we don’t actually digest it. Dates have a hefty 7 grams of fiber per 3.5 ounces serving, so they’re a great way to add more to your diet. 

Dates contain a brain booster
Each little date contains over two milligrams of choline, a B vitamin that’s a component in acetylcholine, the memory neurotransmitter. Higher choline intake is associated with better memory and learning, making it a key nutrient for children and older adults at risk for Alzheimer’s.

Lowers cholesterol
Dates are free from cholesterol and contain very little fat. Including them in smaller quantities in your daily diet can help you keep a check on cholesterol level, and even assist in weight loss. So start loading up on dates today.

Regulates Blood Pressure
Dates are rich in potassium, and the mineral helps lower blood pressure levels. Fiber also stabilizes blood sugar levels. It also counterbalances the effects of sodium in your diet – and this lowers blood pressure.

Improves bone health
Dates could do wonders for your bone health too. Because, dates are rich in selenium, manganese, copper, and magnesium, and all of these are required when it comes to keeping our bones healthy and preventing conditions such as osteoporosis.

Strengthens the nervous system
Date is loaded with potassium, and yet contain little sodium, and that goes a long way in keeping your nervous system in order. The potassium helps to reduce cholesterol and keeps the risk of a stroke in check.

Improves skin
The vitamins C and D works on your skin's elasticity and also keeps your skin smooth. Plus, if you suffer from skin problems, incorporating dates into your diet might help you in the long run. Plus dates also come with anti-aging benefits and prevent the accumulation of melanin in your body.

Prevent Colon Cancer
Intake of dates can reduce the development of colorectal cancer.
Consumption of dates also increases the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut, and this promotes colon health.

Prevent Hair Loss
Coming to the dates benefits for hair, it is equally effective. Being rich in iron, dates promote blood circulation to the scalp and promote hair growth. This happens as oxygen is properly dispersed to your entire body, your scalp included. This ultimately prevents hair loss and stimulates new hair growth.
