Red jujubes (aka red dates) are famous in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) for building energy, stamina, and countering the effects of stress.

They can be eaten raw, cooked in stews, or added to teas. Their medicinal and nutritive properties are best accessed when the dates are boiled.

Here are 3 more facts worth knowing about red jujubes:

  1. Red jujubes contain 18 of the 24 amino acids needed by the body and contain 20% more vitamin C than most citrus fruits and are 70-80% higher in Vitamin C than grapes and apples.
  2. Red jujubes are an excellent cardiotonic, helping to support healthy heart function. They lower blood pressure and help regulate cholesterol.
  3. Ten red dates provide the same amount of iron as a palm-sized piece of beef.
