Fibre - figs are a good source of dietary fibre, in 8oz of figs, there's 5.8% of our daily intake of fibre. Fibre helps control weight by helping to cleanse the colon and keeps us feeling fuller longer!
Calcium - figs are also a fruit source for calcium. For those who don't eat dairy, figs are a good alternative when trying to get your daily calcium intake! The potassium in figs may also counteract the increased urinary calcium loss caused by high-salt diets which also helps in preventing bones from thinning out at a fast rate.
Cardiovascular Health - figs have been shown in animal studies to lower triglycerides in the blood! Hollllla... amazing.
Eye Health - studies have shown that eating 3 or more servings of fruit per day will help lower your risk of age-related macular degeneration by up to 36%! Um... hello. None of us want that, so start eating your 3 servings of fruits!
So basically figs are super healthy and should be a part of your dietary rotation. They are super delish too, and someone actually said you should spread fig with some nice cheese on a cracker, which I think sounds delightful!
