Dates are a healthy and nutritious snack option. They are high in antioxidants that contribute to overall health and well-being. Doctor Irina Yuzup told why you should include dates in your menu.

Firstly, this natural sweetness contains potassium, iron, magnesium, vitamins A, C. Without all this, the human body is not able to fully function. And the fiber contained in dates helps to normalize blood sugar levels. Nutritionists recommend adding dates instead of sugar to smoothies, cereals, smoothies, yogurts - so eating will become more useful.

Due to the content of natural vegetable sugars, dates are quite capable of replacing refined sweets - sweets, chocolate. Store-bought treats are full of "fast" carbs that do nothing but raise blood sugar and cholesterol levels. The use of dates will help the sweet tooth satisfy the need for sugar without harm to health.

But it is worth considering that there is quite a lot of sugar (albeit natural) in dates. Therefore, the use of fruit should be moderate - a handful a day or a couple of pieces several times a day. So you can get the most out of the goodies.
