    Default The Dried Fruit That Could Prevent And Reverse Bone Mass Loss

    Think prunes and the first word that pops into the mind is probably something along the lines of “digestion.” For centuries, grandmas have encouraged us to eat prunes for keeping things smooth and regular. Besides, this dried and wrinkled avatar of plums is quite delicious, too. But their ability to strengthen bones should make you reach out for prunes more often.
    A research study conducted at the Florida State University in Tallahassee studied the effect of eating prunes on postmenopausal women. It found that women who ate prunes every day for a year did not suffer loss of bone mass in the spine and forearms.

    Not to mention sex drive or cod liver oil. Wait, forear what's that backwards? I smell something here and it's all good unless the puppy poops but we've long since learned to clean up after whoever we wouldn't want to live without it or sponges

    Thanks, my trabecular microstructure of tibia is now greatly improved. I like apricots, figs and plums too.

    Ulna I had to look that one up:

    Even though they fed me prunes every morning as a child, I broke the ulna and the tibius at the age of six. Had my arm in a cast for a year because they set it wrong two or three times in a row. Eventually they had to open it up, untangle the mess inside and put it back together correctly. No harm, no foul, now I'm ambidextrous.
