    Date


    Food Value
    The date is a food of high nutritional value. It provides natural sugar in the form of glucose and fructose. This sugar is ready for immediate absorption and is, therefore, infinitely superior to cane-sugar. It is usually taken raw or with milk, which makes it highly nutritious in most respects. Taking it with curdled milk is also common. The seeds of the fruit, roasted and ground into powder makes a beverage like coffee, called 'date coffee'. The date palm yields a sweet juice of high food value. The juice can also be allowed to ferment and made into alcohol.

    Natural Benefits and Curative Properties
    Dates are valuable as medicine for their tonic effect. Being easily digested, they are very useful for supplying energy and repairing waste. Milk in which clean and fresh dates have been boiled is a very nourishing and restorative drink to children and adults alike, especially during convalescence.

    Intestinal Disturbances
    The nicotinic content in dates is an excellent remedy for intestinal disturbances. According to Metchnikoff, the great Russian Scientist, liberal use of dates keeps in check the growth of pathological organisms and helps to establish a colony of friendly bacteria in the intestines.

    Constipation
    The date is a laxative food. It is highly beneficial in the treatment of constipation as the roughage provided by it stimulates sluggish bowels. They should be immersed in water at night and taken after making them into a fine syrup the next morning to secure laxative effect.

    Intoxication
    Dates are excellent remedy for alcoholic intoxication. In such cases, drinking water in which fresh dates have been rubbed or soaked will bring quick relief.

    Weak Heart
    Dates are an effective remedy for weak heart. Dates soaked overnight in water and crushed in the same water in the morning after removing the seeds should be taken at least twice a week in this condition. It will strengthen the heart.

    Sexual Debility
    Dates are highly beneficial in the treatment of sexual weakness. A handful of dates soaked in fresh goat's milk overnight should be ground in the same milk in the morning. A pinch of cardamom powder and honey should be mixed in this preparation. This becomes very useful tonic for improving sex stamina and sterility to to functional disorders.

    Children's Diseases
    A date tied to the wrist of the baby and allowed to be sucked by him during teething time hardens the gums and prevents other complaints like fretfulness and diarrhea. A teaspoonful of paste of the date prepared with honey is an effective medicine for diarrhea and dysentery during teething. It should be given three times a day.

    hi sunkan,

    Good info on dates..though i know that they are good..i cannot make my children eat/drink...i even have called it the brain drink..

    It is best food to break your fast...the reason the sugar..easily solubile is not harmful..hits the blood stream increasing the glucose levels...so any body who goes low on glucose pick up a date......:2thumbsup:
