The Jujube fruit, also called the Red Date, has been enjoyed for its health and well-being properties since thousands of years in South-East Asia.
Packed with flavonoids, phenols and antioxidants, the fresh Jujube fruit has 20x more vitamin C than citrus fruits. It is also dense in manganese and iron, and boasts 18 out of the 24 important amino acids which are essential to the formation of more than 50,000 proteins found in the human body.
A number of scientific studies have found the jujube to be beneficial for insomnia, enhance mood, general gastrointestinal problems, anti-inflammation, anti-cancer, and blood pressure. The high levels of vitamins and minerals help boost the immune system, build red blood cells, and are beneficial for overall energy and vitality. It is considered an adaptogen, which can "adapt" to the body's needs and help reduce stress.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the red date / jujube is known as a warming food, and used to remove dampness, nourish the blood, calm the mind, and strengthen the body.
