Dates are higher in total polyphenols than any of the most commonly consumed fruits or vegetables.
Common health problems – including heart disease, diabetes and arthritis – are associated with inflammation in the body. Antioxidants, particularly polyphenols from fruit, have been shown to directly neutralize free radicals and possibly reduce the damage caused by inflammation. Among commonly consumed whole fresh
fruits, dates rank high in antioxidant polyphenols.
