The ingredients of the plum support the liver and kidneys, have a mild laxative effect, strengthen the nerves, lower fever, prevent arteriosclerosis and are regarded as stimulating the metabolism. Persons sensitive to the stomach should either chew the plums very well or prefer the plums, as the skin of the plums is difficult to digest and can cause so much pain if it does not get soft enough into the stomach.
Depressive moods and nervousness can easily be combated with a one-week plum cure. For this only 200g of plums have to be distorted daily.
plums are an excellent thirst quencher because they contain a lot of water and much less sugar than you might expect. The sweet fruit's reputation is probably due to its traditional addition to baked goods.
