2 THEY contain catechin, an antioxidant that scavenges the free radicals in the body and can help prevent cancer from forming.

3 THEY are also a source of calcium, the main element of our bones, so as a result, they help to reduce the chances of osteoporosis.

4 RAISINS also contain vitamin A and betacarotene, which are essential for keeping our eyes in good shape and healthy.

5 THEY contain iron, which is essential for the formation of blood.
