      "Following the animal study, a pilot clinical trial providing SCI patients with dried plum did not show bone response among those experiencing SCI years prior to the trial. However, investigators indicate that additional research is needed among patients immediately following SCI to determine if dried plum can mitigate the loss of bone and bone strength as it did in the newly injured mice.”


      I think it is worth trying again however

        I thought I read somewhere that dried fruits were all sugars. Now, I will add dried prunes to my diet.

          Dried plums- aren't they prunes? Prunes have sorbitol in them. a sugar-alcohol which can be quite a bowel stimulant. Prevent bone loss in SCI? have to think more about that. Thanks
