Everyday, we hear about new discoveries from studies around the world that indicates what kind of food we need to eat to prevent us from diseases, illnesses and the inevitable aging process. No one wants to age or fall ill to an internal disease, especially when we can help prevent it ourselves from instigating it if we only took care of our health and regulate our nutritional diet.
Truly, Mother Earth provides us with an abundant of foods that helps combat high cholesterol, help with weight loss, inhibit cancer cells from forming and managing tons of other ailments in today’s stressed out society.
So I am here to introduce the healthy life enhancing foods that most people tend to overlook when at the supermarket. I want to introduce you some fruits and vegetables that you probably never heard of. Furthermore, we learn what “phytonutrients” are and what kind of food they are in. Phytonutrient is essentially a big umbrella term that encompasses such wonderful substances for our cells such as quercetin, lycopene, reseratrol, ellagic, sufloraphane, and alpha and beta corotene. I’m sure most of you have heard of ANTI-OXIDANTs that helps prevent our cells from being attacked by free radicals. I will introduce to you some amazing phytonutrients that will help boost your immune system, fight infection, prevents the nasty cold and flu, and help detoxify your body. We will find out more as each post reveals itself to you.
So far, more than 5000 or so phytonutrients have been discovered and documented in studies around the world. For example, you remember the adage “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” well, we found out that not only is the apple itself full of vitamins and fiber but that the most nutritious part of the apple is actually in the apple skin containing the most significant amount of phytonutrients. For instance, in one of the study with over 40,000 adult female subjects found that the quercetin and other phytonutrients in the apple lowered heart disease by 13% to 22%.
Moreover, did you know that some vegetables like watercress can actually prevent cancer cells from growing, specially the harmful effects of cigarette. And that strawberries and other colorful berries containing ellagic acid has illustrated in blocking out cancer causing toxins. I want all of you to take charge of your health through my detail research from scientific journals and to take advantage of the wholistic medicine that nature intended rather than from pharmaceutical companies.
So let’s start to eat healthy to live a long happy life. It beings with YOU!
