Questioner: It was an excellent topic and I think it will help many with that question on their mind.
We have one here. It concerns Reverse Osteoporosis with Prunes. It's an article by LJ Foster, M.D.
He writes, "Eating only 10 of these prunes per day actually reverses osteoporosis in postmenopausal women.
In a clinical study of 58 women, eating 100 grams of dried plums per day improved bone formation markers after only 3 months, compared to a control group served 75 grams of dried apples.
This supported previous animal models, showing increased bone density and improved bone structure on a microscopic level.
In another study, benefits were seen in male rats with low testosterone levels, suggesting men with osteoporosis would benefit from a few daily dried plums as well." Do you have any comment on this first part please?
Cosmic Awareness: This Awareness says that prunes have long been acknowledged as beneficial for human beings for their digestion, and now in light of this evidence, for the density of their bones as well.
This Awareness does affirm that prunes do have the capacity for most to indeed help in these situations.
Questioner: Just jumping ahead a little bit here - "Dried plums benefit the body in other ways too.
The anti-inflammatory effect of the polyphenols in prunes inhibits osteoclasts and also yields benefits for heart health and cholesterol balance. The insoluble fiber found in dried plums helps maintain a healthy colon."
Is this information also valid please?
Cosmic Awareness: This information is also valid.
Questioner: Good. Is there any additional information you'd like to offer?
Cosmic Awareness: This Awareness says the material presented speaks for itself. All that this Awareness would add is that there are many substances in nature, many natural products that are very beneficial to mankind.
Prunes, as this Awareness has already stated, have long been recognized as a product that has high benefits indeed.
This Awareness does recommend that those who enjoy prunes, and even perhaps those who do not enjoy prunes, continue or start to use these miraculous products of nature.
