Dates, natural delights: differences & benefits
Did you know that we carry three different varieties of dates? And do you know what the differences are? All dates have many health benefits, from promoting brain health to aiding in digestion. Dates are incredibly nutritious, high in fibre, vitamins and minerals. They all contain both soluble and insoluble fiber, which helps to lower blood cholesterol, regulate your blood sugar and keep you feeling satiated. Dates are also a tasty way to get more minerals in your diet, they contain manganese, copper, potassium, magnesium, iron and even some selenium and calcium, just to list a few! In addition they also contain a lot of vitamins including: riboflavin, vitamin K and a large range of the B vitamins.

From your cardiovascular system, to keeping your hair, skin and nails looking their best. Having a healthy balanced diet helps to prevent many chronic diseases.
