9 Early Warnings Your Body Is Low in Vitamin C

Image
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is an essential vitamin that strengthens the immune system and prevents sickness and serious health problems.

Seminars in Preventive and Alternative Medicine published a study that reviewed more than 100 studies over 10 years and compiled a growing list of benefits of vitamin C. The study researcher Mark Moyad, MD, MPH, of the University of Michigan, said:

“Vitamin C has received a great deal of attention, and with good reason. Higher blood levels of vitamin C may be the ideal nutrition marker for overall health. The more we study vitamin C, the better our understanding of how diverse it is in protecting our health, from cardiovascular, cancer, stroke, eye health [and] immunity to living longer.”

According to Andrew W. Saul:
“Vitamin C is the world’s best natural antibiotic, antiviral, antitoxin and antihistamine…”

Therefore, its deficiency in the body can poses serious health risks. These are the early signs that indicate that your body is low in this vitamin…

10 Avocado Nutrition Facts (Most People Don’t Know About)

Image
Avocados are among the most nutritious foods we can consume, and they are a real “superfood.”

David Fairchild, American botanist and plant explorer who introduced more than 200,000 exotic plants into the United States said:

“… The avocado is a food without rival among the fruits, the veritable fruit of paradise.”

Yet, there are many things that many of us did not know about these delicious fruits, so read on:

1. Avocados Are Unlike Any Other Fruit Unlike all other fruits, avocados are low in natural sugars and carbohydrates, with a creamy taste, and an impressive nutritional value.

According to Dr. Donald Hensrud, medical director of the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program in Rochester, Minnesota, and a specialist in nutrition and preventive medicine:

“Avocados are a fruit and one of the few fruits that are high in fat and low in sugar. Along with nuts, olive oil, and canola oil, the fat content in avocados are predominantly monounsaturated fat, which is responsible for many health be…

20 Top Foods For Healing Your Body

Image
All that our body needs in order to naturally heal itself might already be the kitchen, so you do not need to seek some miraculous remedy but just visit the nearest grocery store.

A healthy diet, combined with an active lifestyle, is the only successful way to ensure and preserve your optimal health.

According to HealthLine:
“ With every action we take, every thought we think and every morsel we put in our body, we are moving towards greater health and vitality or we are moving towards faster aging, illness, and death. What if we had the power of healing and living at optimum health at our fingertips?”

Namely,

“There are countless studies that point to the direct impact of our diets on our health. A recent paper in The New England Journal of Medicine listed 55 diseases that can be caused just by eating gluten.

Most people with a gluten or food sensitivity often attribute their symptoms to something else – not food.  Not only does food have the ability to do damage, but it also has the…

10 Foods That Unclog Arteries Natural

Image
The blood vessels of arteries carry nutrients and oxygen from the heart to the other body organs. Yet, in case the arteries are clogged, one can develop major cardiovascular diseases.
According to Jillian Levy, CHHC: “Coronary heart disease (CHD) is currently the leading cause of death among adults in the U.S. — and according to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it has maintained this ranking as the No. 1 killer since 1921. Coronary heart disease is a condition caused by the buildup of waxy plaque in the arteries that flow to and from the heart.
Heart disease is sometimes called a “disease of Western, modern civilization” because it was rare before 1900, and still remains much less common in pre-industrialized populations today.
By the mid-1900s, coronary heart disease became the nation’s biggest killer, and today all forms of cardiovascular diseases — including conditions of the heart and blood vessels like angina, congestive heart failure, and stroke — are still …

Researchers Reveal A Diet That Can Reverse Type 2 Diabetes

Image
According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) over 100 million adults in the United States either have diabetes or are pre-diabetic. In fact, as of 2015, over 9 percent of the country’s population was diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. While type 1 diabetes is genetic, there is a causal relationship between weight and type 2 diabetes, and those who are overweight or obese are more likely to be diagnosed with the disease. To further emphasize this point, since 2015, more than 84 million pre-diabetics were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. That said, type 2 diabetes is something that is within our control to manage and, in many cases, it can also be reversed through exercise and a healthy diet. In this article, we detail a few diabetic-friendly diets that can help you manage your diabetes and also maintain a healthy weight.

BEST DIETS FOR THOSE DIAGNOSED WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES When it comes to reversing type two diabetes, there are two diets that have been endorsed by the Ameri…

A Glass Of Celery Juice Lowers Hypertension, Sugar Levels, Reduces Arthritis And Gout Pain Almost Instantly

Image
Being aromatic and crispy, celery is one of the most popular veggies on the planet.  It is a member of the Umbelliferae family, just like parsley and fennel. It can grow to the height of up to 16 inches, and its white variety is grown shaded from direct sunlight, as it contains less chlorophyll that its greener counterparts.

The ancient Ayurveda has used it and its seeds as natural remedies for the flu, colds, arthritis, poor digestion, and liver and spleen disorders. Yet, you will reap most of its benefits if you consume it.

Celery has a salty taste and its ribs are crunchy and tasty, so they are often added to salads, stir-fries, and soups.

Its leaves are abundant in vitamin A, while the stems are high in vitamins B1, B2, B6 and C, magnesium, iron, folate, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, sodium and numerous essential amino acids.

According to Dr.Mercola:
“Celery is a rich source of flavonoids like zeaxanthin, lutein, and beta-carotene, which studies have shown lowers inflammation as…

This Is What A Pinch Of Turmeric Everyday Can Do For The Brain And Memory

Image
Researchers from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, conducted a study which was published in the Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition, whose findings showed that the daily intake of a single gram of turmeric can lead to short-term memory improvements in people predisposed to memory loss.

According to one of the researchers, Mark Wahlqvis: “Our findings with turmeric are consistent with these observations, insofar as they appear to influence cognitive function where there is disordered energy metabolism and insulin resistance.”

This amazing root has been used as a natural medicine and delicious spice for thousands of years and is one of the crucial components in the traditional Asian cooking and medicinal systems. The golden color of turmeric comes from the presence of “curcuminoids”, and curcumin is the most important among them.

The recent Australian study involved adults over the age of 60 who had recently been diagnosed with pre-diabetes but were not receiving treatm…

5 Signs of Vitamin B12 Deficiency Most Doctors Miss!

Image
Your body needs vitamin B12 to create DNA, red blood cells and nerves.

As awesome as your body is, it can’t make B12 on its own; it relies on dietary or supplement sources to build up its required 2.4 micrograms per day.

But roughly 10-13% of all U.S. adults aren’t able to absorb natural B12 from food, no matter how much they take in. Other people, such as vegans, don’t eat enough dairy or meat to reach that amount.

People over the age of 50 are also at risk, as are those suffering from celiac disease or alcoholism.

Luckily, a vitamin B12 deficiency is fairly easy to spot and correct. Let’s take a look at the symptoms.

5 Signs of B12 Deficiency
1. Fatigue


B12 helps your body metabolize food and turn it into energy. It also helps you transport oxygen throughout your body. Without B12, this process becomes difficult and you wind up feeling sluggish and tired.

2. Tingling Sensations Vitamin B12 is crucial for healthy nerve function. A deficiency can lead to a condition known as peripheral…

Essential Oils and Brain Injuries: What You Are Not Being Told!

Image
Have you ever felt a smell that instantly brought back memories? Have you ever enjoyed a smell so much that you felt completely relaxed and happy? Our sense of smell is very powerful, and it is the only one directly linked to the limbic system, which is the brain part in charge of our emotional, physical, and psychological responses.
Essential oils and their scent are powerful healing agents. Aromatherapy, or essential oil therapy, is an alternative medicine practice that utilizes aromatic essential oils derived from many different healing plants.

The inhalation of the scent molecules of an essential oil stimulates the olfactory system, the part of the brain linked to smell. Molecules that enter the nose or mouth pass to the lungs, make an immediate exchange with the blood and reach other body parts.

When they reach the brain, they affect the limbic system, which is related to memory, stress, blood pressure, emotions, heart rate, breathing, and hormone balance.

According to researcher…

Ginger-Garlic Soup Made With 52 Cloves of Garlic Can Defeat Colds, Flu and Even Norovirus

Image
According to WhFoods:
“China is by far the world’s largest commercial producer of garlic, with 20 million tons of production in 2014. In that same year, India was the second largest producer with about 1.25 million tons, and South Korea, Egypt, and Russia rounded out the top five countries for garlic production. Between 50-75% of all garlic consumed in the U.S. is currently grown in China.

Mexico and Argentina are also important sources for garlic imports into the U.S. At present, the U.S. serves as the number one import market for fresh garlic worldwide. This demand for fresh garlic in the U.S. is clearly reflected in our increased history of use: on a per capita basis, U.S. adults average about 2 pounds of garlic per year, as compared with less than ½ pound per year in the early 1970s.

Within the United States, 80-90% of all garlic comes from California. Two regions of the state are especially important for garlic production: the western San Joaquin Valley and the area west of the D…

These 10 Exercises Will Un-Slouch Your Back to Correct Bad Posture And Remedy Back Pain

Image
Bad posture seems to be an epidemic in the modern world, as we spend our days in front of the TV or computer, sitting most of the time, and most of us are physically inactive.

According to VeryWellHealth:
“Good posture is a form of fitness in which the muscles of the body support the skeleton in an alignment that is stable as well as efficient. This state of being called good posture is present both in stillness and in movement.

Unfortunately, numerous factors one may encounter in life can get in the way of good posture. For more people than not, bad posture comes about by the day to day effect of gravity as it acts on our structure. Bad posture may be due to an injury, a disease or because of genetics — i.e., the things that for the most part, you can’t control. A combination of these factors is also quite common.”

Namely, poor posture can be a result of improper sleeping positions, slouching, obesity, weak or tight muscles, low self-confidence, anxiety, and stress.

Yet, poor posture…

Amazing Health Benefits of Farting

Image
Society comes with its rules and morals, and it dictates if our behaviors are acceptable or not.

For instance, spitting, yelling, littering, and staring at someone are considered rude, and when it comes to flatulence or farting, it is an absolute social no-no. If you have ever cut an audible fart in the company of others, it is surely one of the most embarrassing things that have happened to you.

However, passing gas is completely normal, and it is actually necessary since it is important for our digestion. As our intestines and stomach break down the consumed foods, a certain amount of gas is an inevitable by-product.

Dr.Ankita Gupta, a gastroenterologist, says:
“On an average, 5 to 10 farts per day are normal and women fart just as much as men. Farts are indicative of intestinal gas which is suggestive of healthy gut bacteria which are a normal part of our intestines. These bacteria carry out a lot of functions like digestion, synthesis of vitamins, adding to immunity and maintaining…

13 Incredibly Cleansing Effects That Happen After Eating Or Drinking 1 Beet Per Day

Image
Beets are definitely the most beneficial root vegetables, and their leaves are full of chlorophyll and other essential nutrients, and their greens are even more nutritious than the roots.

Their deep red/purple color is due to the presence of a phytochemical known as betacyanin, which can drastically lower homocysteine levels. Beets detoxify and strengthen the blood, and are full of vitamins, including vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and C.
