Study Shows Prunes Make Your Bones Stronger

The study, published in Scientific Reports, found that mice exposed to radiation had less bone loss if they ate prune powder prior to the exposure compared with than mice who did not eat prune powder.

While no one is quite sure why this happens, researchers speculate it’s due to the  high levels of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties in prunes. Read the story from Reader’s Digest.
