Choose Food Instead of Medicine

Food First!

Imagine a food, and not a medicine that is powerful enough to help you lower your cholesterol or reduce your risk of heart disease or lower your possibility of cancer! And then for an added bonus, it also puts you in a better mood and helps you achieve radiant looking skin. Oh, and I think I forgot to mention that there are absolutely no side effects? Surely you would stock up on a lifetime supply. Guess what? These life-altering foods are available right now in your local supermarket.
The foods you choose to eat will effect how you feel today as well as your future life’s quality. Even healthy people are able to make a few tweaks – and the impact really is amazing. I would guestimate that approximately 60% of suffering could be eliminated by what people eat and how they choose to exercise – I truly believe that heart disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer and high blood pressure can all be impacted.
The great thing is that you do not need to eat a specific food to treat a specific ailment. A healthy diet should incorporate a variety of the following superfoods – and they will help you maintain your weight, fight disease and even live longer. The one thing that all the foods on my list have in common is that they are ‘clean’ (unprocessed) foods. You aren’t going to find a fortified cereal on my list!

My Top Superfoods Which I Believe Offer Super Health Protection

  • Beans
  • Blueberries
  • Broccoli
  • Oats
  • Oranges
  • Pumpkin
  • Salmon
  • Soy
  • Spinach
  • Green Tea
  • Tomatoes
  • Turkey
  • Walnuts
  • Yogurt
Blueberries — Antioxidant Superfood

Blueberries — Antioxidant Superfood

Blueberries — Antioxidant Superfood
The ultimate superfood. Just 100g (4oz) of blueberries contain the same amount of age-defying antioxidants as five servings of other fruit and vegetables. Antioxidants help guard against a range of cancers, heart disease, asthma, arthritis and cataracts, Alzheimer’s and age-related neurological diseases.

By preventing infectious bacteria from clinging to the wall of the gut, bladder and urethra, blueberries also offer protection against cystitis. High in vitamin C and a good source of fibre, blueberries have a compound, pterostilbene, which acts to protect the heart in the same way as cholesterol-lowering drugs.

They also contain anthocyanins, which give them their blue colour. Other flavonoids reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer. There is also resveratrol, which again is believed to have an anti-cancer effect.

Please do not ALWAYS choose food over medicine. Prevention is definitely the better way to go but don't let serious conditions like hypertension go untreated.
