Figs are an excellent source of calcium that women need for healthy bones, plus normal muscle and nerve function. One cup of stewed figs has about 180 milligrams of calciumwhich is almost 20 percent of your daily requirement. Fresh figs are also a good source of vitamins C that is essential for healthy blood vessels and strong connective tissue.


Fresh figs are low in calories and high in fiber, too, so they're good for your diet. Eating figs will keep you feeling full longer, plus the fiber is good for your digestive system. Figs are a
prebioticfood, which means eating figs will help support the friendly bacteria (called probiotics) that live in your digestive tract. Probiotic bacteria keep the bad bacteria under control and help make vitamin K.

Pro tip: buy fresh figs as a snack but eat them right away -- they don't keep for long. Dried figs keep much longer.
