Not only are dried figs unparalleled sources of dietary fiber, they also provide powerful antioxidants which can protect against cell damage caused by free radicals. Dried figs are also rich in several essential minerals like manganese, potassium, calcium, iron and magnesium. While manganese and calcium play an important role in bone health, magnesium helps maintain nerve and muscle function, and potassium helps to counteract the effect of excess sodium ingested from processed foods and contributes to cardiovascular health.
