– Plums, and especially prunes, are a powerful laxative that can cure even the most severe cases of constipation.
– They stimulate appetite and secretions of saliva and gastric juices, and facilitate digestion.
– Plums also regenerate nerves, and make an excellent food for persons who are fatigued or suffering from burn-out.
– Eating plums regularly prevents flatulence and bloating of the stomach. If you eat raw plums or cooked prunes, or drink prune juice every day (before or after meals), your digestive problems should disappear in two to three weeks.
