NUTRITION RESEARCH CONTINUES TO SUPPORT 
DRIED PLUMS’ ROLE IN BONE AND COLON HEALTH

San Diego, CA - (April 4, 2016) - New research presented this week at Experimental Biology 2016 (EB 2016) expands on the current body of evidence supporting the link between dried plums (prunes) and bone health in post-menopausal women, and the effect of dried plums on reducing colon cancer risk in an animal model. The findings align with previous studies that have discovered dried plums’ benefits on both bone and colon health.  

New Study Adds to Ongoing Research that Dried Plums Help Support Healthy Bones

Sacramento, Calif. (March 10, 2016) - One in two women and up to one in four men over age 50 will break a bone in their lifetime due to osteoporosis. While bone health may not top the list of common health concerns, the risk is real. In fact, for women, the chance of breaking a hip is equal to her combined risk of breast, uterine and ovarian cancer.1 Various lifestyle factors, including diet and exercise, can help to prevent osteoporosis, which is actually not considered a normal part of aging. And new research, published in Osteoporosis International, highlights the important role that one specific fruit - dried plums (prunes) - might play in strengthening bones.

Emerging Animal Research Suggests Dried Plums Help Prevent Bone Loss in Those Exposed to Radiation

(February 11, 2016) —Exciting new animal research, published in Scientific Reports today, suggests that dried plums may help to prevent bone loss in those exposed to radiation, such as astronauts in space. This research is timely as a year-long space mission to help scientists better understand the effects of space on the human body is about to conclude in March.
