Raisin

Vitamins and mineral salts, energizing, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties proven by scientific studies, beneficial effect on inflammation of the gastric mucosa such as gastritis, counteracts the oxidation of bad cholesterol LDL, satiating power and against constipation
Raisin has Greek or Turkish origins and is the result of the drying process in the sun or in special dryers of a variety of grapes, small and sweet. Raisins are an ideal snack because the drying process has made the nutrients more concentrated, it is a source of vitamins, particularly those of group B, which are important for the functioning of the nervous system and to fight tiredness and loss of memory, and mineral salts, such as potassium, calcium, copper and iron. It is energizing because it is rich in carbohydrates, increases the sense of satiety and counteracts constipation thanks to the fibers. In addition to this, raisin has also an anti-inflammatory action, in particular on the gastric mucosa and results helpful in case of disorders such as gastritis. This last statement is the result of a study carried out by the University of Milan in collaboration with Portuguese and Turkish scientists and published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences in 2016. Another study, published in the Journal of medicinal food in 2009 by a Greek team, has shown that raisins have antioxidant properties, counteract free radicals and inhibit the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, the bad cholesterol. This is particularly important because it is precisely the oxidation of LDL cholesterol that promotes the formation of arteriosclerotic plaques. You can take a teaspoon of raisins added to the breakfast yogurt or as a tasty and energizing snack at mid-morning or a few hours before training, for example together with cashew nuts, walnuts and almonds for a total of 20 grams of dried fruit per day, perfect for students, sporty people, convalescents, the elderly or for those who face very stressing days!
