If you were ever told to drink prune juice to help "keep you regular" by your grandmother, you may have giggled and made jokes about it with your friends. But she was on to something! Drinking prune juice for constipation is actually good advice.
According to WebMD, because it's high in fiber and sorbitol (sugar alcohol), prune juice acts as a natural laxative. Drinking just 1/2 cup of prune juice may help improve the movement of digested food through your system. And that's not the only reason to keep prune juice in your fridge.
There are other potential prune juice benefits that may surprise you. A great source of vitamins A and C, calcium and iron, prune juice is also high in potassium and antioxidants that may lower cholesterol and reduce high blood pressure to help keep your heart healthy, prevent heart disease, stroke and other health issues.
