2.) Full of magnesium! Magnesium battles inflammation in your body and it also helps reduce the risks of migraines (holllla!!!). Because of it’s anti-inflammatory properties, magnesium can reduce the risk of heart disease and improve cardiovascular health.
3.) Dates can help you ace your test! Well, not exactly….but the high levels of B6 found in dates has been provened to support healthier brain function and therefore leading to better test-taking.
