Ever-increasingly, studies demonstrate that dates have a spectrum of healthy properties. In particular, the Medjool’s nutritional value has prompted researchers to regard it as an ideal or superfood. Furthermore, no pesticides, additives, or preservatives are used in the cultivation or packaging of Fresh Energy™ dates or date-related products. All-natural and nutrient-rich, Fresh Energy™ products are a popular choice for athletes and individuals following certain dietary restrictions due to illness. They are also a delicious and satisfying way to indulge without compromise to a healthy diet. Read on to see how anyone can support a healthy lifestyle by incorporating Fresh Energy™ dates into their diet.
Fat, Sodium, and Cholesterol Free
Studies suggest that a diet low in fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers. Also, diets low in sodium may help reduce high blood pressure.
Dates are best known as one of the most potent natural sources of potassium. Fresh Energy™ Medjools contain a higher content ratio of potassium than bananas, even. Potassium is the mineral essential to the body in maintaining healthy muscle contraction including vital heart muscle function. Potassium has also been shown to be a contributor to maintaining a healthy nervous system. Furthermore, potassium aids in balancing sodium levels in the body while encouraging the stable release of energy from proteins, fat, and carbohydrates. This is why potassium helps sustain an individual’s energy levels over time.
Medjool Dates are also popular among endurance athletes due to potassium and the fact dates are dense with high levels of dietary fiber which allows for the natural sugars to remain in the bloodstream longer. This results in sustained energy without the crash that is evident in many popular energy drinks.
Rich In Minerals
In addition to high levels of potassium, Fresh Energy™ Medjools contain other minerals like calcium and magnesium, both essential in the support of healthy bones and joints. Medjool dates also include impressive amounts of iron, nearly 1/3 of the Recommended Dietary Allowance needed to promote red blood cell development.
High In Dietary Fibers
Fresh Energy™ Medjool dates are a great source of dietary fiber, an important aid in healthy digestion. Our dates are delicious and sweet due to their naturally occurring sugars, yet remain low on the glycemic index because the sugars are balanced by high natural fiber content. The combination of these factors makes our dates extremely helpful in terms of healthy digestive function and maintaining or losing weight. Fiber is proven to not only support healthy digestion but also to help you feel fuller longer. Our Medjool date is a healthy carbohydrate that because it is also high in fiber, can keep blood sugar stable, help sustain energy, and manage hunger. Also, studies increasingly suggest that a high fiber diet may reduce the risk of some types of cancer. The benefits of high natural fiber intake are extraordinary, and Fresh Energy™ dates are a delicious way to capture those benefits.
Full of Vitamins
The Fresh Energy™ Medjool date is packed with vitamins like A, K, and different B-complex. It also includes Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B-6, Folate, and Pantothenic acid. This long list of vitamins delivers nutrients that benefit various healthy body functions including:
- The immune system
- Eye health
- Red blood cell production
- Heart health
- Brain and nerve function
- Converting food into energy
- Healthy skin, hair, and nails
Rich In Antioxidants
Our dates are an excellent source of antioxidants, known to prevent free radical damage. Specifically, recent studies have shown Medjool dates to be very dense with anti-oxidants known as polyphenols. Polyphenols are now understood to be particularly effective at protecting against cancer and heart disease. Higher concentrations of polyphenols are found in fruits produced in hot, sunny climates, like the Fresh Energy™ Medjool date. Grown in the California sun, our Medjools are handpicked when they’re most ripe, healthy, and flavorful.
