4.Alleviates Constipation

Most dried fruits are full of fiber, that's because the skin, pulp and seeds are all dried. You can eat more dried fruit than whole fruit, and the fiber keeps your digestive tract, including the large and small intestine, flowing. Constipation is most always a result of dehydration and lack of fiber.



5.Helps With Weight Loss

Higher antioxidants in the body result in weight loss, less body fat and particularly less belly fat. Dried fruits are a great way to get your daily allowance of fruit and then some because when fruit is dried you can eat more of it. Don't go overboard and eat an entire bag, because the sugar content could be detrimental.

You can eat more dried fruits than fresh fruits, doubling and sometimes tripling the benefits. Eat morning and afternoon, not at night because of sugar content.



7.Reduces Risk Of Cancer

Dried raspberries are one of the best dried fruits you can eat for cancer prevention in the body. With a high concentration of ellagic acid, apoptosis is induced, which is cell suicide in cancer cells. Most concentrated in the seeds, dried fruit maintains the pulp and seeds for the full health benefit.

Dried apples and plums are excellent for keeping cholesterol from building in the arteries. A dozen dried apple rings, or plums, per day seems to do the trick. The old adage that an apple a day keeps the doctor away is true, and by eating it dry you can consume more. Twelve apple rings is equivalent to two apples.



9.Improves Hemoglobin

Prunes are a great way to improving hemoglobin. They are high in fiber and keep energy levels high. Apricots, dates and raisins are other great sources that are high in iron and help form the red pigment in the blood. Adding dried fruits to cereal and yogurt are an excellent way to incorporate them into your diet.
