Regulate blood pressure
If you’re looking for a remedy for your high blood pressure, dates are the real deal for you. They are packed with potassium and magnesium. A serving of 5-6 dates provides about 80mg of magnesium. This mineral stimulates the flow of blood, and you need about 370mg of magnesium to regulate your blood pressure.
Potassium in dates is also beneficial for your nervous system. It prevents sudden strokes. Take 400mg of potassium every day to stay safe and healthy.
