TCM explains how jujubes aka Chinese dates keep you young

Chinese dates   JUJUBE, the dark red fruit known as Chinese date, is both a popular snack and a very nutritious and therapeutic food praised in classics of herbal medicine. Three jujubes a day keeps the doctor away and keeps you young, the saying goes. In the legend "Journey to the West," an ailing king one day encounters the god of longevity in a forest and asks him for the secret of life. The god says he didn't bring medicine along since he was trying to find his lost horse, but he gave the king three jujubes that he had been planning to give to the god of heaven.
