The vitamin E, fiber, and antioxidant polyphenols may be the elements that provide this protection. The potassium in almond provides protection against high blood pressure and atherosclerosis.
Apricots have high levels of beta-carotene and lycopene provide protection against the damage from LDL (bad) cholesterol, a leading contributor to heart disease. The powerful antioxidant vitamin A promotes eye health. Apricots are good source of fiber, which supports digestive and intestinal health. Also it’s an excellent source of the carotenoid lycopene, which is associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer.
Buttermilk is a Probiotic food. These contain living microorganisms, that can survive the passage through the stomach and become active in the intestines. Healthy bacteria reside in everybody’s colon, and in return for food and a warm place to live these resident bacteria contribute to your health. One of the most intestinal-friendly resident bacteria is the family of lactobacteria, so-called because they thrive on lactose sugars. The commonest form is L.acidophilus. There are some healthy benefits manufacture vitamins, improve digestion, boost Immunity, manufacture nutrients, protect against cardiovascular diseases, protect against carcinogens. Buttermilk is lower in fat than regular milk, because the fat has been removed to make butter. It is also high in potassium, vitamin B12, calcium, and riboflavin as well as a good source of phosphorus.
Black Currant is very rich in many phytonutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, essential fatty acids and minerals. In particular, black currants are renowned for their high content in Vitamin C (a powerful antioxidant), GLA (Gamma-Linoleic Acid, a very rare Omega-6 essential fatty acid) and potassium. They have been shown to have twice the potassium of bananas, four times the vitamin C of oranges, and twice the antioxidants of blueberries. Black currants contain anthocyanins, which are compounds naturally found in berries. They are very potent antioxidants and are responsible for the color of blackcurrants.
Cabbage provides healthy levels of vitamin C and various phytonutrients, including flavonoids, indoles, and sulforaphane. The indoles in cabbage may help prevent breast cancer by converting estradiol, an estrogen-like hormone, into a safer form of estrogen. Cabbage can heal ulcers, as it contains the amino acid L-glutamine, which protects the stomach lining, and gefarnate, a substance that stimulates the secretion of mucus from stomach’s lining.
Carrot-is an excellent source of antioxidants, including lycopene, lutein, and zeaxanthin protect the eyes against cataracts and macular degeneration, and especially the carotenoids, featuring beta-carotene. The liver converts the beta-carotene in carrots to vitamin A and sends it to the retina.
Cashews are significant sources of iron (essential for red blood cell function and enzyme activity), magnesium (promotes energy release and bone growth), phosphorus (builds bones and teeth), zinc (essential to digestion and metabolism) and selenium (has important antioxidant properties, thus protecting the body from cancer). Cashew nuts also contain significant amounts of phytochemicals with antioxidant properties that protects the body from cancer and heart disease.
Cinnamon slows the rate at which the stomach empties after eating, which reduces the rise in blood glucose levels and thus is helpful for type 2 diabetes.
Coconut is a tropical fruit that is rich in protein. The meat of the coconut is very good in destroying intestinal parasites, that we get from eating infected food. Good body builder, so it is a food recommended for building up the body muscles of thin and emaciated individuals. Constipation and for any build-up of gas in the stomach and intestinal tract.
Cottage cheese is one of the most versatile cheeses around, and with its soft texture and rather mild taste it’s an easy food for almost anyone to enjoy. This soft cheese earns its name from the fact that it was originally made in small cottages as a way to use leftover milk. It’s low in calories and fat, even four percent milk fat cottage cheese is low in calories with about 120 calories per serving. It’s high in protein, a single serving of cottage cheese has up to fifteen grams of protein, much of it in the form of casein, a slow digesting form of protein. The high protein content of cottage cheese and its high casein content make it a high satiety food so it reduces hunger for longer periods of time. It’s low in carbohydrates, Most cottage cheese is low in carbohydrates with carb contents ranging from three grams to six grams. The low fat versions are often higher in carbs since they have added starches. It’s high in bone-building calcium, calcium is important not only for building strong bones, but also for maintaining normal blood pressure.
Date sugar is 100% dehydrated dates ground into small pieces. It is a whole food, high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
Dark Chocolate's health benefits come from the cocoa, which contains phenols, a class of phytonutrients. The phenols in dark chocolate are a powerful antioxidant and can reduce high blood pressure. The flavonoids in dark chocolate can help prevent atherosclerosis and heart disease, as the prevent blood platelets from sticking together and causing clots.
The monoterpene components of dill have been shown to activate the enzyme glutathione-S-transferase, which helps attach the anti-oxidant molecule glutathione to oxidized molecules that would otherwise do damage in the body. The activity of dill's volatile oils qualify it as a "chemoprotective" food (much like parsley) that can help neutralize particular types of carcinogens, such as the benzopyrenes that are part of cigarette smoke, charcoal grill smoke, and the smoke produced by trash incinerators. In addition to its chemoprotective and bacteriostatic properties, our food ranking system qualified dill as a very good source of calcium. Calcium is important for reducing the bone loss that occurs after menopause and in some conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis. Our food ranking system also qualified dill as a good source of dietary fiber and a good source of the minerals manganese, iron and magnesium.
Egg contains all the essential protein, minerals and vitamins, except Vitamin C. But egg yolks are one of few foods that naturally contain Vitamin D. Eggs also are good for your eyes because they contain lutein which helps prevents age-related cataracts and muscular degeneration. It’s a good source of choline, which helps regulate brain health (can help with memory), nervous system functioning, and cardiovascular health.
Flaxseed is a good alternative source of omega-3 fatty acids for anyone who does not eat fish and/or take fish oil supplement. Flaxseeds are delicious way to help reduce the inflammation associated with arthritis, asthma, bursitis, fibromyalgia, migraine, osteoporosis, and PMS. The magnesium in flaxseeds can lower high blood pressure and help in treatments of insomnia. Flaxseed contains lignans, substances which protect against development of breast cancer in women.
Garlic contains a high concentration of sulfur-containing elements, including alliin, an amino acid that contracts with the enzyme alliinase when raw garlic is chewed or crushed. Garlic is effective against bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites, and has been effective in the treatment of infections, including bronchitis, the common cold, diarrhea, ear infections, urinary track infections, and vaginitis.
The Goji Berry is also called the wolfberry. It is a bright orange-red berry that comes from a shrub that's native to China. In Asia, goji berries have been eaten for generations in the hopes of living longer. Over time, people have used goji berries to treat many common health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, fever, and age-related eye problems. Goji berries are eaten raw, cooked, or dried (like raisins) and are used in herbal teas, juices, wines, and medicines. Berries like the goji berry are filled with powerful antioxidants and other compounds that may help prevent cancer and other illnesses, including heart disease. Antioxidants may also boost the immune system and lower cholesterol.
Hazelnut is rich in vitamin E (helps form red blood cells, muscles and other tissues) and are a useful source of thiamine (enhances energy and promotes normal appetite) and vitamin B6 (aids protein metabolism and absorption). These nuts are also relatively good sources of protein (essential for growth and repair of the body's cells), dietary fiber (helps the movement of the digestive tract), iron (essential for red blood cell function and enzyme activity), calcium (helps build bones and teeth) and potassium (helps regulate the body's fluid balance).
Honey has an exceptional antioxidant qualities, which make it an immunity- boosting power-house with antiviral and antibacterial capabilities. Honey is more effective than dextromethorphan (a cough suppressant ) at reducing the frequency and severity of nighttime coughing in children. Honey soothes the throat on contact and is thought to activate endorphins.
Maple Syrup has the trace mineral manganese which is an essential cofactor in a number of enzymes important in energy production and antioxidant defenses. Zinc and manganese are important allies in the immune system. Many types of immune cells appear to depend upon zinc for optimal function. Maple syrup may help to support reproductive health and provides special benefits for men. Zinc is concentrated more highly in the prostate than in any other human tissue, and low levels of zinc in this gland relate to a higher risk for prostate cancer. In fact, zinc is a mineral used therapeutically by healthcare practitioners to help reduce prostate size. Manganese may also play a role in supporting men's health since, as a catalyst in the synthesis of fatty acids and cholesterol, it also participates in the production of sex hormones, thus helping to maintain reproductive health.
Mushrooms are a good source of most of the B vitamins, selenium, cooper, and potassium, and they are low in calories as well. The cooper in mushrooms may help reduce the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and in helping fight free radical damage. Mushrooms contain beta-glucan, a substance that can boost the immune system and offer anticancer benefits, including reduced tumor growth.
Mulberry has significantly high amounts of phenolic flavonoid phytochemicals called anthocyanins. Consumption of berries have potential health effects against cancer, aging and neurological diseases, inflammation, diabetes, and bacterial infections. The berries contain resveratrol, another polyphenol flavonoid antioxidant. In addition, these berries are an excellent source of vitamin-C (36.4 mcg per 100, about 61% of RDI), which is also a powerful natural antioxidant. Consumption of foods rich in vitamin-C helps body develop resistance against infectious agents, counter inflammation and scavenge harmful free radicals. They also contain good amount vitamin A, vitamin E and in addition to the above mentioned antioxidants also contain many other health promoting flavonoid poly phenolic antioxidants such as lutein, zeaxanthin, ß-carotene and ?-carotene in small but notably significant amounts. These compounds help act as protect from harmful effects of oxygen-derived free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) that play a role in aging and various disease process. Mulberries are excellent source of iron, which is a rare feature among berries, contains 1.85 mg/100 g of fruits (about 23% of RDI). Iron, being a component of hemoglobin inside the red blood cells, determines the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood. They also good source of minerals like potassium, manganese, and magnesium. Potassium in an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure. Manganese is used by the body as a co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase. They are rich in B-complex group of vitamins and vitamin K. Contain very good amounts of vitamin B-6, niacin, riboflavin and folic acid. These vitamins are function as co-factors and help body in the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats.
Neufchâtel is native soft cheese from France, the classic Neufchâtel remains a somewhat decadent, gourmet mild cheese. Yet Americans know Neufchâtel as a "light" version of cream cheese. The domestic version of Neufchâtel is a low-fat uncured cheese, sometimes called "farmer's cheese." It lends itself well to healthy versions of both sweet and savory dishes. If you are trying to reduce fat and calories, substitute Neufchâtel for full-fat cream cheese. Neufchâtel is considered somewhat moister and spreadable than other low-fat cream cheeses.
Oats, oatmeal, and oat bran contain beta-glucan, a type of fiber that is especially effective at reducing cholesterol level. Lower cholesterol levels can significantly reduce the risk of stroke and heart disease. Beta-glucan also significantly improves the immune system’s response to bacterial infections, which may include bronchitis, ear infections, gingivitis, and urinary tract infections. Beta- glucan has the ability to reduce blood sugar levels, which is helpful for people at risk for or who have diabetes. Besides being a great source of energy-giving protein, B vitamins, vitamin E, calcium, and iron, this wholesome grain is celebrated for its capacity to lower LDL (“bad”)cholesterol levels, a quality attributable to its soluble fiber.
Exclusive use of olive oil resulted in a forty-seven percent reduced risk of coronary heart disease. One reason for this benefit is the high content of monounsaturated fat, which helps reduce cholesterol levels and thus helps prevent atherosclerosis. Another is the presence of phytonutrients called oleuropein, which helps prevent plaque from adhering to blood vessel walls.
Onion contains ingredients that fight colds and flu. The sulfur compounds that make you cry have potent anti-inflammatory properties that relieve cold- and flu-related aches and congestion. And a flavonoid called quercetin, an even more effective congestion buster in onion, works with vitamin C to stabilize the body’s histamine-producing, sniffle-causing response to germs.
Parsley provides good levels of vitamin A and K, also has several unusual, helpful components: volatile oils (can inhibit tumor formation, especially in the lungs) and flavonoids ( especially luteolin, help prevent cell damage associated with various diseases, including asthma, atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetes, glaucoma, heart disease, and macular degeneration). Vitamin A and flavonoids in parsley boosts the immune system. Vitamin K helps maintain bone density – and thus helps prevent osteoporosis – because it activates osteocalcin, a major protein in bone. Vitamin K may also relieve heavy menstrual flow and/or menstrual pain associated with PMS and/or menopause.
Pears provides cooper, a mineral that is critical part of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and a key player in preventing cell damage. Thus copper may protect a wide range of health issues, including atherosclerosis, cancer, heart disease, and osteoporosis. Copper is important in the prevention and treatment of anemia, because it works with iron to form hemoglobin. Fiber in pears helps prevent constipation, promotes regularity, helps reduce cholesterol levels, and aids the removal of toxins from the intestinal track, which helps prevent colon cancer, diverticular disease, and irritable bowel syndrome.
Pecans are a rich source of energy, provide 690 cal/100 g and contain many health benefiting nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins that are essential for wellbeing. These nuts are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids like oleic acid and an excellent source of antioxidants. Pecan nuts are rich source of many phyto-chemical substances that may contribute to their overall antioxidant activity, including polyphenolic antioxidant ellagic acid, vitamin E, beta-carotenes, lutein and zeaxanthin. Pecans are an excellent source of vitamin-E, especially rich in gama tocopherol; provides about 25g per100 g. Vitamin E is a powerful lipid soluble antioxidant, required for maintaining the integrity of cell membrane of mucus membranes and skin by protecting it from harmful oxygen free radicals. The nuts are packed with many important B-complex group of vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-6, and folates. These vitamins functions as co-factors for enzymes during cellular substrate metabolism. The nuts are also rich source of minerals like manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and selenium.
Components found in pumpkin seed oil seem to interrupt the mechanism that triggers the duplication of prostate cells by testosterone and dihydrotestosterone, the factors that cause benign prostatic hypertrophy or BPH. Pumpkin seeds contain carotenoids, omega-3 fatty acids, and zinc, all of which may be responsible for this benefit. The zinc in pumpkin seeds may help improve bone density. They have a high level of phytosterols (265mg/3.5 oz of seeds), plant compounds that may reduce cholesterol, boost the immune system, and decrease the risk of some cancers. They have excellent levels of magnesium, which can be helpful for allergies, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, glaucoma, headache, hemorrhoids, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, Parkinson’s disease, and PMS. The high iron content in pumpkin seeds may help if you have anemia or chronic fatigue syndrome.
Raisins are one of the few foods that provide a good amount of boron, a trace mineral that is important in bone health and osteoporosis. Boron is especially important in postmenopausal women because it reproduces many of the good effects of estrogen, including its ability to help maintain bone density. The phytonutrients in raisins, especially oleanolic acid, are very effective in killing bacteria that cause cavities and gingivitis.
Raspberrys are rich in various phytonutrients. In fact, raspberries have nearly fifty percent higher antioxidant activity than strawberries, three times that of kiwi, and ten times that of tomatoes. Raspberries contain anthocyanins, which have both antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. They may have cancer-prevention qualities. This future is credited to phytonutrients called ellagitanins, which are almost exclusive to raspberry. The high antioxidant power of raspberries makes them strongly recommended for preventing macular degeneration. The very high fiber content may help prevent intestinal conditions, including constipation, diarrhea, hemorrhoids, irregularity, and irritable bowel syndrome.
Spinach has at least 13 different flavonoid compounds that provide antioxidant/or anticancer benefits. It contains a carotenoid called neoxanthin, which research shows can cause prostate cancer cells to self-destruct. Vitamin K maintains bone health by activating osteocalcin, the major non-collagen protein in bone. Spinach is an excellent source of iron, which is critical for women in menopause and for people who have anemia or chronic fatigue syndrome. The beta-carotene , and vitamin C in spinach may help prevent atherosclerosis and diabetic heart disease by reducing free radicals and preventing the oxidation of cholesterol so it cannot stick to the walls of the blood vessels. The magnesium in spinach may reduce high blood pressure and protect against heart disease. Spinach contain vitamin E , which helps slow mental decline and memory loss.
Sunflower Seeds are very high in vitamin E, which is linked to a reduced risk of heart disease. Sunflower seeds also provide antioxidant defense against cancer as well as against cataracts. They are a good source of magnesium. Numerous studies have demonstrated that magnesium helps reduce the severity of asthma, lower high blood pressure, and prevent migraine headaches, as well as reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke. Magnesium is also necessary for healthy bones and energy production. Sunflower seeds are also a good source of selenium, a trace mineral that is of fundamental importance to human health.
Turbinado Sugar is a raw sugar that has been steam cleaned to remove contaminates, leaving a llight molasses flavored, tan colored sugar. It also is considered by some to be “healthier” since it receives less processing than does white sugar.
Walnuts not only taste great but are a rich source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and an excellent source of those hard to find omega-3 fatty acids. Phytonutrient research on the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits of walnuts protective against metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular problems, and type 2 diabetes. Some phytonutrients found in walnuts - for example, the quinone juglone - are found in virtually no other commonly-eaten foods. Other phytonutrients - like the tannin tellimagrandin or the flavonol morin - are also rare and valuable as antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients. These anti-inflammatory and antioxidant phytonutrients also help explain the decreased risk of certain cancers - including prostate cancer and breast cancer - in relationship to walnut consumption.
