Although laboratory and animal studies suggest that compounds in prunes may help promote the activity of cells that build new bone (Damani, Adv Nutr 2022), clinical studies in postmenopausal women with mild bone loss have not shown prunes (6 to 12 per day) to increase bone density in the hip or, consistently, in the spine, or reduce the risk of fractures (Hooshmand, Br J Nutr 2014; Hooshman, Osteoporos Int 2016).
