Are Black Plums Good For You?

Answer: Black plums are a type of plum, which is generally healthier than other types. The dark purple-red color comes from anthocyanins which have been proven to confer a range benefits, including cancer prevention and antioxidant properties.
Black plums also contain Vitamin C, dietary fiber and quercetin, a powerful flavonoid that’s thought to help prevent diabetes or cancer cells from multiplying.

The phytonutrients in black plums may also reduce inflammation as well as boost heart health by reducing LDL cholesterol levels and protecting against plaque build-up in the arteries… In short – it sounds like they’re pretty healthy!
