Did you know that four dried figs provide even a quarter of the recommended daily amount of iron that is needed in our body?
To achieve maximum effect, eat the figs with compote or fresh squeezed orange juice, which is rich in vitamin C, because vitamin D enhances the absorption of iron in the body.
Dried figs are an excellent source of minerals. In addition to iron, figs are rich in copper, zinc, selenium, manganese, calcium and potassium.
Figs contain essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and phytosterols, which can decrease the level of blood cholesterol.
