Dried plums (or prunes) are also sweet and juicy and contain several antioxidants.  Plums and prunes are known for their laxative effect. This effect is attributed to various compounds present, such as dietry fiber.  Prunes and prune juice are often used to help regulate the functioning of the digestive system.

Plum, pineapple and ginger juice recipe

Ingredients – makes 2 glasses
1 teaspoon young  ginger root juice
1 cup slice sweet ripe pineapples
1 cup plums- seeded, keep skin for fiber
