Dates are very sweet small healthy fruits. My first encounter with Dates was eating a biscuit/cookie called Date bars, I instantly fell in love! Those were all I could eat. Including Dates in your diet or regimen has loads of benefits because of the nutrients that they contain. Let’s take a look…
Dates contain Vitamins A, B2, B6, C, E, K, rich in Fiber, Iron, Magnesium, Copper, Potassium, Calcium, Phosphorus and Selenium.These nutrients it contains help prevent dry,brittle hair and split ends by nourishing the hair roots and scalp helping the hair grow stronger and healthier. The Iron and Vitamins present in them help in healthy circulation of blood flow to the scalp which ensures hair growth and prevents hair loss, especially as the Iron helps maintain the amount of blood cells and regulate the flow of oxygen to the scalp and body in general. You should try eating a Date a day.
They also contain anti-oxidative properties which help for better digestion, bowel movement and prevent constipation as they also contain Fiber.They contain natural sugar and thus help boost energy. They also help for a firm skin, eliminate dry and dead skin cells to give you a glowing, youthful skin.
Walnuts are one of the nuts never to miss out on, they’re kinda shaped like a brain-did you figure?. Let me tell you why…They not only contain Antioxidants that keep immune system healthy, they contain Vitamins B complex, E, Potassium, Omega 3,6 and 9 Fatty acids which help strengthen hair follicles to ensure that you have a long, healthy and strong hair.
Applying Walnut oil regularly to hair, scalp and skin can also help prevent balding and dermatitis. They possess moisturizing properties,keeping hair healthily hydrated and are usually used as natural anti-dandruff agents. They also help improve hair color and add shine to the hair!
Walnuts also contain Zinc, Iron, Protein, Biotin and Fiber which are essential in having healthy hair growth. They contain Folate and Copper too, which boost brain activity; they are very good for pregnant women and their babies. They elevate blood levels Melatonin- a hormone that induces sleep, and so are very good late night snacks (don’t forget to brush afterwards!..lol) and also help in weight loss because of the presence of Fiber in them.
I hope you found this helpful. Don’t forget to eat more Dates and Walnuts too.
Enjoy the rest of your week.
