The Feature Food For October is the Plum!
A Plum is a tree fruit related to the peach and cherry that usually has smooth purple or reddish skin, sweet juicy flesh, and a stony pit. (Dictionary)
The health benefits of plums include relief from indigestion, influenza infections, and anxiety-related problems. The antioxidant power of these fruits helps in treating osteoporosis, macular degeneration, cancer, diabetes, and obesity. They also help in maintaining a healthy heart by reducing cholesterol levels.
Additionally, plums improve cognition, boost immunity, improve cellular health, maintain electrolyte balance, keep the nervous system healthy, and aid in skin care and blood clotting.
