2. Dates prevent diarrhea
The high potassium content prevents diarrhea by relieving the belly flora and the intestines, stimulating more effective bacteria in this way.
3. Dates soothe constipation
Dates have also got relieving properties that can soothe diarrhea and constipation. In other words, dates will help keep you regular…without letting things get out of control – which is not something most laxatives can say.
4. Dates control body weight
If you want to prevent excessive fat, you should eat dates on an empty stomach, as they’re cholesterol-free. Just be careful their sugar content, so as not to overeat.

Hurrah for cardiovascular power!
