Preclinical data has suggested that dried plum may affect bone heath.

Intracellular and extracellular alkaline phosphatase activities were increased after 3 or 0 days of treatment. Moreover, plasma samples increased the mRNA expression of bone markers RUNX2 and connexin 43, as mRNA expression of β-catenin.

The authors concluded that osteoblast activity and function are increased by dried plum ingestion, which may therefore have beneficial effects on bone health, especially in osteoporotic patients.
