As exotic as it may sound, raisins were one of the most important culinary discoveries in history. Accidentally discovered 4,000 years ago, raisins are an important source of vitamins, fiber and minerals. Doctors and nutritionists recommend eating raisins because they have an important content of vitamins, fiber and minerals.

But the benefits to the body are even more important if the raisins are soaked in water overnight. Water dissolves all the minerals and nutrients inside the raisin, but also in its skin, further increasing the benefits of this super food.

Why drink water with raisins - benefits for the body:

The liver and intestines are easier to cleanse of toxins

In fact, the detoxifying properties of raisins are due to the large amount of antioxidants and fiber that these dried fruits contain. Antioxidants support the proper functioning of the liver, while fiber increases bowel movements, helping to cleanse the colon and intestines.

The body receives a large amount of energy, which lasts longer

Scientists and sports experts believe that raisins are a perfect replacement for energy bars. Raisins contain a large amount of fiber and micro nutrients and have no added sugar or artificial flavors, as they have many energy bars. Drinking water with raisins in the morning supplies you with energy for the day that begins, but you can also consume it before an intense workout.

Bad cholesterol levels drop and blood pressure stabilizes

Clinical studies have shown that raisins have a much higher content of fiber, potassium and antioxidants compared to other types of snacks. People who regularly eat raisins have lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure levels than those who occasionally consume these dried fruits. Also, regular consumption of raisins reduces the level of bad cholesterol, which helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Ensure beautiful and healthy hair - raisins contain beneficial nutrients for hair including vitamin A, iron, potassium and antioxidants in abundance, which means that your hair will be beautiful and healthy if you include raisins in your diet.

They contain plenty of potassium - raisins are an excellent source of potassium, so they can be consumed to combat muscle spasms and stimulate nerve impulses.

They are effective in combating anemia - raisins are rich in iron, but also in the B-complex vitamins, which are known to help fight anemia. Copper, which is abundant in raisins, also contributes to the production of red blood cells.

Helps treat infections - raisins contain phenol phyto nutrients, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. They also have antibacterial properties, which lower fever and help kill the bacteria that cause infections.

They are good for the eyes - raisins contain antioxidants that are effective in maintaining eyesight over the years. Antioxidants in raisins protect the eyes by reducing the action of free radicals that affect vision causing degeneration.

Maintain healthy bones - raisins contain large amounts of calcium, which is extremely healthy for the bones. Thus, eating raisins reduces the risk of arthritis and gout, while also helping to relieve symptoms if these diseases have already occurred.

Maintain beautiful skin - raisins contain phenol, but also other beneficial antioxidants, which protect cells from the effects of free radicals on the skin. Thus, the aging process of the skin is delayed, and the skin is beautiful and healthy.

How to eat raisins to enjoy their benefits

Raisins can be eaten as a snack between meals, as such. They can also be eaten as a healthy mixture, along with almonds, dried plums, figs or dates.

Another tasty and healthy method of consumption is that of raisins soaked in warm milk.

Breakfast cereals can also be served with raisins.

If you notice that the raisins have dried too much, you can hydrate them again by keeping them for a few minutes in a bowl full of water.
