When the nutritional values and health benefits of Raisins are considered, *“Gems”* will be an accurate name for them!!?
Raisins are obtained by drying grapes, either in the sun or in driers, which turns the grapes into golden, green or black gems. These delicacies are everyone’s favorites, particularly children. They are widely used in cultural cooking around the world and are also added to health tonics, snacks, and compact, high energy food supplements for mountaineers, backpackers and athletes. So now let’s see how they help our body!!
PROMOTE WEIGHT GAIN
Raisins, like all dried fruits, are very good tools for gaining weight in a healthy way since they are full of fructose and glucose and contain a lot of potential energy. They form an ideal part of a diet for athletes or bodybuilders who need a powerful boost of energy, or for those who want to put on weight without accumulating unhealthy amounts of cholesterol.Raisins also stimulate the efficient absorption of other proteins, vitamins, and nutrients gained from food, which improves your overall energy and immune system strength.
Raisins have high levels of catechins, which are polyphenolic antioxidants present in the blood. Antioxidants scavenge the free radicals floating in the body. Free radicals are one of the primary underlying factors that lead to the spontaneous growth of cancer cells. Therefore, by including raisins in your diet and increasing the level of these powerful antioxidants in your system, you can prevent cancer.
Raisins have the power to reduce blood pressure and protect heart health.Many of the nutrients packed into them are beneficial, but it is the high level of potassium that helps. Potassium is a well-researched way to reduce the tension of blood vessels and decrease blood pressure, and the dietary fiber in raisins affect the biochemistry of blood vessels and reduce their stiffness, which in turn reduces hypertension.
Raisins have been shown to lower the postprandial insulin response, which means they can stabilize the spikes or plunges on the insulin after a meal that can be otherwise dangerous to patients with diabetes. They also help regulate the release of leptin and ghrelin, which are the hormones responsible for telling the body when it is hungry or full. By keeping a check on these hormones, people who eat raisins can improve their chances of maintaining a healthy diet and prevent overeating.
Raisins contain a considerable amount of iron which directly helps in the treatment of anemia. It also contains many members of vitamin B complex that are essential for the formation of new blood. The high coppercontent in raisins also helps the formation of red blood cells.
CURE VIRAL FEVER
Phenolic phytonutrients, well known for their germicidal, antibiotic, and antioxidant properties, are abundantly present in raisins and can help cure fevers by fighting viral and bacterial infections.
PROMOTES BONE HEALTH
Calcium, the main element of our bones, is present in raisins, and these dried fruits are one of the best sources of boron, a micronutrient. A micronutrient is a nutrient required by the body in very small amount as compared to other nutrients that must be consumed daily in significant amounts. Boron is vital for the proper bone formation and efficient absorption of calcium. It is particularly helpful in preventing osteoporosis induced by menopause in women and is very beneficial for bones and joints.
Oleanolic acid, one of the phytochemicals present in raisins, plays a crucial role in protecting your teeth against tooth decay, cavities, and teeth brittleness. It effectively prevents the growth of the bacterial species that are most responsible for cavities and other dental problems. In addition, it is rich in calcium, which is good for promoting dental health, as it prevents breaking or peeling of teeth and enamel while making them stronger.
AN INTERESTING FACT!!❤️
As strange as it may sound, unlike other sweets when eating raisins, the longer they stick to your teeth, the better it is, because that ensures an extended contact of oleanolic acid with the teeth, increasing the preventive powers of bacterial growth. So chew the raisins thoroughly and swallow. Such an easy way to Good Oral Health!!!
