Health Benefits of Medjool Dates

If you’ve tried Medjool dates, you know they’re super sweet, super caramely (is that a word?), and just super delicious. All around super, which is why they call it a “Super Food.” But the question is, are they really good for you? Lucky for us date-freaks, the answer is “Yes!”

Here are some of the health benefits of Medjool dates.

Energy. To begin with, Medjool dates are a great source of energy. They are a fantastic alternative sweetener. My husband loves them in his almond milk shake in the morning. They are a great pick-me-up. Good pre or post-workout, or if you need a little boost before going into that important meeting. Works like a charm.

Fiber. Medjool dates also are an important source of dietary fiber. They help with constipation to get those bowels moving. Helps move things along in the digestive tract.

Potassium. Did you know that Medjool dates have more potassium than bananas? You do now.

Vitamins & Minerals. Medjool dates are also packed with an impressive list of vitamins and minerals, including iron, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, and calcium. They also have no cholesterol or sodium.

Prevent Bad Stuff From Happening. A lot of science-y people who happen to be just a little smarter than me also say Medjool dates help with preventing a lot of bad illnesses. For example, Medjool dates are reported to be effective in reducing cholesterol, reducing triglyceride levels to give your heart a healthy boost, and improving bone health.
