    In addition to the other nutritional benefits noted, prunes are high in antioxidants and beta-carotenes which eliminate free radicals that would otherwise harm healthy brain cells and cell membranes.

    Prunes are also known for their high levels of potassium which is beneficial for regulating blood pressure and heart function.  Studies were also conducted which showed that men who consumed high levels of potassium were at a reduced risk for stroke.
