One of the highly-regarded “super fruits”, Jujube (Chinese Red Date) is known to contain over twenty times more Vitamin C than most citric fruits, which has earned it the (well-deserved) title “Vitamin C King”. Jujubes are rich in iron, calcium and phosphorus, as well as Vitamins A and B2. These are highly nutritious and naturally sweet. Excellent addition to a healthy breakfast, they can also be included in various soups, stews, baked goods, and smoothies.
In alternative medicine, they’re widely utilized to improve sleep and decrease anxiety.
