Prunes are a good source of fiber, and a digestive superfood that contains sorbitol, which provides a mild laxative effect. By eating prunes daily, you can maintain regularity in your digestive system and avoid constipation.

When buying Plums; Plump, well colored fruit that yields to gentle pressure on the skin. Depending on the variety, color varies from bright yellow-green to reddish-purple to purplish-black. Avoid hard, shriveled, soft, or cracked fruit.
