What are the foods you eat with health benefits that others don't know about?
Things like Chia seeds, green tea or other weird and wonderful things!
Most of the foods we eat have health benefits only we don't realise this sometimes. Some of them are Okra(Called Lady fingers because it is shaped like a finger)- good cure for diabetes, Chinese cabbage - good source of vitamins and minerals and good source of dietary fiber, papaya or pawpaw is very good for our skin, high in vitamin A and C, helps in digestion of food and good for regular bowel movement, Coconut juice - helps with kidney stones and good for cleansing the body, avocado - contains good fats and healthy oil, because of this - it prevents heart diseases and strokes. I could go on. Hope these help.
There are a ton of them, and all for different reasons. Green tea is an anti viral, so effective for a cold or flu, actually fights the infection at the source, in the throat.
Ginger, for hot flashes, flatulance, as well as upset stomache. Peppermint for upset stomache, and allergies.
Peanut butter, high in protein very effective for hypo glycemia, low blood sugar. High in co q 10, an effective nutrient for heart disease, as well as auto immune disease.
Coconut oil, helps to stabilize blood sugar, feeds the brain, hair, skin and nails. An effective treatment for ADHD, Depression, as well as alzheimers, diabetes, and arthritis. High in omega fatty acids, much in the same way as fish oil.
Pecans high in protein, high in omega fatty acids, as well as helpful to balance hormones during menopause. Helps with hot flashes, by helping to produce estrogen. May also ward off osteo perosis because bone formation is influenced by estrogen in women.
The list goes on and on.
Fennel, for its abilty to regulate hormones. Helpful with PMS, Peri menopause, as well as meno pause. Helpful for skin conditions as well.
Cinnamon for its ability to regulate blood sugar levels, has been found recently to help so well, that many have no need to use insulin shots. Pretty impressive. It also aids in digestion, and warms the body, by increasing blood flow.
