This gives a laxative effect to the stomach and helps in relieving constipation. Culinary Raisins are rich in potassium and magnesium. This helps to reduce acidity levels and remove the toxins from the system, preventing diseases like arthritis, gout, kidney stones and so on. Culinary Raisins contain iron and other B-Complex vitamins which help treat anaemia.
