So much fiber in such a tiny package! These dried little fruits pack a potent punch that can help relieve constipation while providing great eye, bone, and dental health benefits. Raisins are also full of healthy glucose and fructose, which support weight gain and a considerable amount of iron, which helps combat anemia. They're even known to stimulate the libido thanks to the amino acid Arginine. Fun fact: In India, it's traditional for the bride and groom to drink a cup of milk each, boiled with raisins and with a pinch of saffron added, on their wedding night.
Always opt for organic raisins and try to buy them in bulk or sold in transparent containers to assess their quality. Storing them in an airtight container in the refrigerator will extend their shelf life.
