Several studies show that eating prunes can reduce biomarkers of bone loss and build bone density, probably by decreasing bone damaging oxidation and inflammation. In fact, scientists at Florida State University who conducted the research call prunes “the most effective fruit in preventing and reversing bone loss.”

Rapid Remedy: A study in British Journal of Nutrition shows that eating prunes daily is protective. Aim for five or six a day. Try sprinkling pitted, chopped prunes on oatmeal or ready-to-eat cereal or into pancake batter. Or add them to apple butter, orange marmalade, peanut butter or low-fat cream cheese, and spread on crackers for a delicious snack. Prunes are also great in chicken salad. Or simply eat prunes every day, they make a great dessert.
