Prunes are an incredible cleanser of the body.  Prunes, either dried or juiced, helps draw out toxins from your liver, kidneys, lungs, and stomach then forces its way into your intestines for the body to eliminate.

They also boast anti-aging properties and are good for normalizing blood sugar levels.
