Health Benefits of Jujube


Jujubes have been used as herbal medicine for thousands of years throughout Asia.

Jujubes are highly nutritious and loaded with vitamins and minerals that benefit the blood stream, hormones, bones, soft tissue, enzymes and neurotransmitters.

Jujubes are high in vitamins A, C, and potassium that strengthen the immune system. The mucilaginous property of the fruit soothes sore throats. These benefits combined make Jujubes a natural cold and cough preventative.

Jujubes contain 18 out of the 24 important amino acids and helps form more than 50,000 proteins of the body; triggering wound healing.

Jujubes have a soothing effect on the nervous system and act as a natural sedative; and relieve stress and anxiety.

Jujubes help lower blood pressure.

Antioxidants in Jujubes help protect the liver from injury.

Jujubes are used to treat anemia and purpura.

And perhaps the most important benefit is that Jujubes inhibit the growth and movement of free radicals. This helps control the growth of tumor causing cells and the cells that lead to cancers; especially leukemia.
