Fig: Power Food
FIG WEEK | November 1st -7th
Wave goodbye to your cramps !
Figs are a true superfood, containing antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, such as potassium and magnesium. This means figs help to prevent cramps. Potassium also helps to balance out the sodium concentration in your blood to lower blood pressure.
Figs are naturally sweet while containing a moderate amount of carbohydrates. Figs also contain soluble fiber. The upshot is that they provide steady, consistent energy by regulating digestion. Refined sugar and/or rice crisps by contrast spike energy levels and then quickly cause you to bonk.

Figs help with bone development and heart/muscle contractions because they contain the highest calcium content of any fruit out there (about 16%DV per 100g). And, if you’re cutting back on red meat, the figs give you 2% of your daily iron, which helps build healthy, oxygen-carrying red blood cells.
Muscles at work generate lactic acid, pyruvic acid and CO2, which can lower your overall blood pH. Introducing alkaline-forming foods (like figs) balances the resulting acidity, giving you renewed power and endurance.
