Figs grow on the Ficus tree (Ficus carica), which is a member of the Mulberry family. This sweet delicious fruit is prized for its dense nutrition (rich with fibre, copper, vitamin B6, potassium, phenolic antioxidants) and regarded as a sacred fruit in many ancient cultures. Figs are native to the Middle East and Mediterranean, and were held in such high regard by the Greeks that laws were once created to prevent their export.

When figs are dried, their health benefits increase; dried figs have higher antioxidant activity and mineral content then fresh figs.

Botanical name : Ficus carica

Organic certifications: ECOCERT

Nature’s Superfoods Sun-Dried Figs are organically grown on the fertile plains of Turkey, handpicked, and dried under the Mediterranean sun, with no added sugar, additives, or preservatives. Our dried figs are free from sulphites.

1) Improves Digestion, Prevents Constipation

Per serving, figs are higher in fibre than any other fresh or dried fruit. High-fibre foods, like dried figs, also increase feelings of fullness, and can reduce hunger and cravings (which is helpful for weight management).

2) Prevents High Blood Pressure

Most sodium in our modern diets comes from processed foods. Hypertension (high blood pressure) can result from high salt (sodium) intakes. Eating potassium-rich foods, like dried figs, can help relax blood vessels, excrete the sodium and decrease blood pressure.

3) Promotes Bone Health

Dried figs are naturally a good source of calcium, and have good amounts of phosphorus and Vitamin K, the perfect trio for bone health.

4) Contains Health-Protecting Antioxidants

Figs are rich in antioxidant polyphenols and manganese that neutralize free radicals in your body, repair cell damage and keep us free from chronic disease.

5) Helps Get Rid of Toxins

Figs are among the most alkaline foods, can help balance the acidic conditions resulting from consuming a diet rich in meat and processed foods.

6) Improves Iron Deficiency (Anaemia)

Figs are good source of iron.

    "Can’t have enough of this! I never liked dried figs until I came across this one from Nature’s Superfood. ???? Unlike those sold in the market, these dried figs are soft and fresh."
