Once upon a time, I picked up a jar of “Organic Raw Blue Agave Nectar” at my Costco. It was the first time I’d ever seen the stuff in real life before Vitamix Demos, and the label looked promising.

Based on the labeling, I could picture native peoples creating their own agave nectar from the wild agave plants. Surely, this was a traditional food, eaten for thousands of years. Sadly, it is not.
Health benefits of dates are uncountable, as this fruit is affluent in natural fibres. Dates are even rich in several vitamins and minerals.

Dates help in fighting constipation, intestinal disorders, weight gain, heart problems, sexual weakness, diarrhoea and abdominal cancer.
