Dates are considered a “power fruit” because they are loaded with benefits. They are rich in nearly 70 bioactive minerals that support the adrenal glands to help you handle life’s daily challenges. Dates are also high in antioxidants, which may contribute to many of their health benefits.

Dates are amazing for the digestive system.
Dates are a good source of dietary fiber which keeps things moving and also can aid in weight management. They are also one of the most anti-parasitical foods on the planet, dates bind onto, destroy, and sweep away parasites; yeast, mold, and other fungus; heavy metals; unproductive bacteria; viruses; and other poisonous pathogens from the gut.
Consuming dates on a daily basis will give you other benefits also:
• Reduces anxiety
• Improves mental focus (reduces confusion and brain fog)
• Improves sleep
• Helps ringing or buzzing in the ears
• Improves bowel movements
• Good for anemic people
• Improves heart health
• Improves bone health
To experience dates’ maximum benefits, Anthony Williams (Medical Medium®) suggests we eat four to six daily. This granola recipe is a perfect way to consume all the benefits of dates in a sweet treat.
I make a big batch and store it in a jar in the fridge. I also make it into balls which makes it great for quick treat. I also love this granola on the top of my yogurt.
