Are prunes helpful for my bones?

Prunes may be helpful for your bones as they provide a number of nutrients that all contribute one way or another to bone health. Prunes are high in vitamin K which supports the maintenance of normal bones and helps with blood clotting. They are a source of manganese which also supports the maintenance of normal bones and helps form normal connective tissue (a structural part of bones). In addition, prunes are a source of vitamin B6, which helps make healthy blood cells and maintain normal hormone levels; a source of copper, which helps support normal iron transport in the body and helps maintain normal connective tissues (a structural part of bones). Interesting research is currently underway that is exploring this potential role for prunes in bone health.
