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 ‘prebiotic’ food, 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.
