The Health Benefits of Plums
Plums primarily contain carbohydrates, with 9.6g (all of which are naturally-occurring sugars) per 100g. They have just 0.1g fat and 0.6g protein per 100g. They are low in calories, with 39 per 100g, and have a high water content.
Plums also contain a good mix of vitamins and minerals, especially calcium, which ensures blood clots normally; magnesium, which can help to manage the symptoms of stress and reduce fatigue, and folate, which helps the body to form healthy red blood cells. Plums also contain vitamin C, which helps with wound healing, and carotene, which converts to vitamin A and helps to support the normal function of the immune system.
