Prunes are emerging as a surprising fruit that can have a positive impact on bone health. Not only do prunes contain a variety of nutrients that play a role in bone building, structure, maintenance and breakdown – like vitamin K, phosphorus, boron and potassium – but research continues to show that prunes help support healthy bones. Sunsweet Growers Inc. is a proud supporter of WOD and incorporating bone-building habits – like eating a daily serving of prunes (4-5 prunes) – into a regular lifestyle routine.

  1. I didn’t know that Prunes were good for bone health! I usually just eat them to help me with digestion and they are tasty regardless. This is a bonus!

  2. I always knew that prunes were good for you in a myriad of ways, but I didn’t know that they were good for bone health as well. Thanks for the information!

  3. Women in my family tend to get Osteoporosis. I really need to think about preventing it more!

  4. Diet is the prevention for sure! I didnt realize prunes were so important, I love prunes

  5. This was a good reminder to schedule my bone density test. Supposed to get them every other year but I think I missed last year so I need to get on it.

  6. I had no idea about osteoporosis day but definitely affects a lot of people, I didn’t know prunes were so healthy and could affect the bones too! great info!

  7. It’s so important to take care of our bodies! Great tips above. Love hearing that prunes are getting more attention, they’re delicious!

  8. I had no idea about prunes either! These are great tips! I have so many family members who suffer from osteoporosis !

  9. Prunes are good for bone health? I had no idea. That is pretty awesome to know, although I don’t really enjoy prunes. Its a great option! Wonderful tips.

  10. I had no idea about the prunes. They aren’t something I normally eat but I’m happy to know their health benefits! Anything that keeps our bones strong I’m in!

  11. I really hate the taste of prunes so i have a hard time eating them. But I could stand to exercise more than I do. I really struggle with that too!!! EEK! My bones are going to fall apart. Thanks for sharing these awesome tips.

  12. This is amazing. I’ve always liked prunes because they help with metabolism but I didn’t know that they help make your bones stronger as well, that’s really good news. We need all the support that we need to make sure that we have healthy bones as we age, after all.

  13. It’s amazing what a healthier diet will do for your bones & help support your system overall. I know a lot of women take extra supplements as well, but I think that if you can get all that goodness from your diet and natural sources, you shouldn’t need the supplements.

  14. I had no idea that prunes could be so good for you. They have such a stigma attached to them. The only time I have ever really eaten them was when I was pregnant. I love how many nutrients you can get simply by learning what to eat and forgetting all of those vitamins.

  15. Great information! As we get older, especially as women, it’s so important to stay aware of things that can cause harm to our bodies and likewise, do things to help ourselves.

  16. I might be killing a dead horse but prunes and bones? Did not know that…

  17. I had no idea that prunes could help with this! Thanks for sharing. I think it will help with an aging strategy.
