What is it?
This small red fruit – also known as a red date, Chinese date, Korean date, or Indian date – has been used in parts of Asia for thousands of years. So of course, we’re only just jumping onto the bandwagon.
What does it contain?
It contains a range of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, including magnesium, potassium, copper, niacin, calcium, manganese, phosphorus, iron, phenolics, flavonoids and polysaccharides, plus 18 amino acids and 20 times more vitamin C than an orange.
What can it do?
The Jujube has a pretty extensive resume when it comes to health benefits. Studies have found it to have cancer-fighting, anti-inflammatory, weight loss, immunostimulating, antioxidant, hepatoprotective, gastrointestinal protective, and Alzheimer’s combat abilities.
How is it eaten?
The jujube tastes a bit like a crispy apple and it can be eaten fresh or dried in a variety of dishes, teas, and supplements.
So where can I get them?
If you can’t track them down at your local grocer or health food store, you can direct from farmers by googling!
