Tamr – Dried dates strengthen the liver, relax the bowels, increase semen production, especially when taken with pine, and relieves sore throat. As for those who are not used to eating dried dates, such as the residents of cold areas, dried dates cause them clogs, headaches and harm the teeth unless they are eaten with almonds and poppy.
Dried dates are among the most nutritious fruits. Their essence is hot and wet. Also, when one eats dates in the beginning of the day, they help kill worms.
Although dried dates are hot, they have the strength of an antidote against worms, killing or at least decreasing their numbers, especially when they are taken frequently on an empty stomach. Dried dates are a fruit, a type of food, a cure, a drink and a sweet.
