Research suggests eating dried plums can help maintain healthy bones. In 2011, a study found adults who ate dried plums (about 10 per day) for a year had significantly higher bone mineral density than adults who ate apples daily (though the study was done in postmenopausal women). Plums slow the rate of bone resorption (the breakdown of bone), the researchers say. Additional research on male mice also showed that dried plums improved bone mass and structure.
