Raisins are one of the top sources of the trace mineral, boron, in the diet.
The phenols found in raisins have repeatedly been shown to have antioxidant activity and to help prevent oxygen-based damage to cells in the body.
Raisins, despite being sweet and sticky, promote oral health! The phytonutrients in raisins, specifically one called oleanolic acid, are highly effective in killing the bacteria that cause cavities (Streptococcus mutans) and periodontal dental disease (Porphyromonas gingivalis).
Data reported in a study published in the Archives of Ophthalmology indicates that eating 3 or more servings of fruit per day may lower your risk of age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), the primary cause of vision loss in older adults, by 36%, compared to persons who consume less than 1.5 servings of fruit daily. So add some raisins to your breakfast cereal!
