Health Benefits.......Food and Drinks


Health Benefits.......Food and Drinks

My latest blog will have a look at a couple of healthy foods and drinks, and their benefits, which include fighting against cancer, keeping your eyes healthy, and more. Please check out my other Health and Fitness blog posts coming soon, and let me know what you think and any recommendations.

Firstly a look at beetroot, as I've found a few health benefits to this particular vegetable. Now I've never tried this myself, as I'm not a fan of beetroot, but drinking BEETROOT JUICE is said to boost your stamina. This stuff is high in nitrate, which widens blood vessels, optimising oxygen intake for extra energy levels. Great for football, weight training, the lot! Also, scientists from Mid Sweden University found that drinking 700ml of beetroot juice can enable you to hold your breath for 11% longer; especially great if you're a swimmer.
And, if that wasn't enough, scientists at Wake Forest University in North Carolina say that eating just one beetroot a day can help fight Alzheimer's due to its high levels of nitrates (your mouth bacteria then turns it into nitrites). In-turn, the chemicals dilate your blood vessels, increasing flow and oxygen delivery. 

 If you’re serious about fighting against getting cancer then I highly recommend a regular intake of BROCCOLI each week. I’m not the biggest fan of broccoli either, or vegetables in general, but chopping them finely and adding them to soups, stews and much more, is a simple and effective way of beating this, and is also a good way of getting your children eating them, starting them off early. Oregan State University research has shown that the chemical Sulforphane, found in broccoli, attacks cancer cells while ignoring the healthy ones! Perfect combination!

PEANUT BUTTER regenerates your liver! So it's not just a great muscle-gaining aid then! Research done by the University of Virginia found the effects of liver damage can be reversed by eating foods rich in vitamin E, as they help block the RSK proteins that cause cirrhosis. Peanut butter is said to be one of the best sources, so stock your cupboards now!


And next we move onto antioxidants, and the best foods to find them in....

Red Kidney Beans – Studies have shown that these help to reduce cholesterol levels. Also high in the fatty acid DHA, essential for eye health.
·        
Cranberries  – These are said to fight against tooth decay.
·        
Pecans – Eating these can delay age-related Motor Neuron Degeneration.
·        
Wild Blueberries – These little beauties can help you in your weight-loss goals as they’re said to reduce stomach fat.
