With medical knowledge getting richer every day, people are discovering that all sorts of food have different benefits when it comes to ones' health. Dates, for example, have been regarded as being great.

But they have other benefits other than tasting good and being a healthy choice for a snack; In fact, their properties can help people's bodies in ten different ways.

1 - THEY MIGHT PREVENT STOMACH CANCER

It has been discovered that dates tend to boost one's abdominal health by significantly lowering the risk of having stomach ulcers.

2 - THEY STRENGTH THE HEART

Dates can be great allies when it comes to the heart. For that, one must leave a few dates soaking in water overnight and eat them right after waking up.

3 - THEY AID WITH WEIGHT LOSS

The above method can also be very effective when it comes to shedding a few pounds. When consumed on an empty stomach, dates supply the body with natural sugars and boost digestion.

4 - THEY REGULATE CHOLESTEROL

Eating dates while fasting might also help regulate one's cholesterol levels, which turns out to be quite beneficial when it comes to diabetes. But dates are also highly caloric, so they should be consumed in moderation.

5 - THEY HAVE A LOT OF IRON

If one ingests 100g of dates on a daily basis, he or she will be providing the body with the required amount of iron, which boosts oxygen supply and regulates the count of red blood cells.

6 - THEY PREVENT STROKES

Dates contain high levels of potassium, which aids the nervous system and, therefore, the heart itself. The consumption of 400 mg of potassium on a daily basis is the recommended amount.

7- THEY REGULATE BLOOD PRESSURE

The fact that dates are rich and potassium and poor in sodium means that they might have a positive effect in your blood. For good results, one should ingest five or six dates every day to match the body's magnesium requirements.

8 - THEY FIGHT ALCOHOL INTOXICATION

Dates possess an overwhelming sobering effect capable of soothing headaches caused by a large consumption of alcohol.
