A chronic gastrointestinal disorder called irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) can improve on a GF diet. GF also improves cholesterol levels, promotes digestive health and increases energy levels. GF reduces your risk of heart disease, certain cancers, and diabetes.
Quinoa is your best plant-based source for the nine essential amino acids your body cannot produce. It is referred to as a complete protein. The health benefits go beyond vitamins and minerals. It is also high in fiber, vitamin B, vitamin E, iron, potassium, calcium, and phosphorus. High-fiber diets have been shown to help improve blood sugar control, which is beneficial for individuals with diabetes or prediabetes.
This helps to control blood sugar levels. Good blood sugar control helps prevent and delay the onset of complications, including heart disease, stroke, and damage to the nerves and kidneys. A number of studies suggest that low-GI diets are effective at reducing blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. Overall, studies show that low-GI may also improve cholesterol levels, aid in weight loss, and reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease.
Contains plant antioxidants including; flavonoids, quercetin, and kaempferol. These molecules have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-cancer and anti-depressant effects in animal studies. There are new studies emerging confirming the health benefits of adequate wholegrain intake and the benefits of their antioxidants. Digital-age toxicities create direct and immediate oxidative stress; natural antioxidants are more important than ever.
High in important minerals like iron and magnesium. Magnesium is a key mineral for HU’s digital detox. It works by stabilizing the ion balance in your cells typically disrupted by digital toxins. Magnesium is essential for the function of more than 300 enzymes; it is present in every cell of the body. Muscle spasm, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, muscle cramps, and migraines are all associated with low levels of magnesium.
Foods rich in complex carbs, healthy fats, and lean protein have been shown to support metabolic health. Metabolic syndrome is caused by excess amounts of simple sugars, saturated fats, and condensed unnatural proteins. Quinoa is one of the few vegetable sources of complete protein, it’s high in complex carbs with no saturated fat. This is the perfect food to support your metabolic health and keep you well-nourished on the road to good health.
Nourishes the liver, cleanses toxins from your body and improves digestion. Includes peppermint leaf which is full of antioxidants that are effective at preventing various types of cancer, has anti-aging properties, and has been known to relieve stress. Consuming foods enriched with antioxidants is necessary to fight health-damaging environmental factors, especially those caused by digital-age toxicities. Other benefits: improves skin health and boosts immune health.
Promotes overall health. Contains antioxidants called flavonoids. Consuming them can help remove free radicals and decrease cell damage in the body, which helps decrease the risk of chronic disease and improves heart health. Also contains ginkgo, which helps fight inflammation, reduces the symptoms of psychiatric disorders and dementia, improves brain function, well-being, reduces anxiety, and can help with depression.
Rest Well Tea improves the quality of sleep. Its main ingredient is chamomile, which offers a variety of health benefits. Chamomile is a caffeine-free alternative to black or green tea. It has unique properties that have benefits on the quality of your sleep. Other benefits may include blood sugar control, digestive health, and improved heart and skin health. It may also boost immune health and prevent bone loss.
Contains an abundance of antioxidants and a significant amount of polyunsaturated fatty acids, potassium, vitamin B2 (riboflavin), and folate. Antioxidants included are carotenoids and vitamin E. Pumpkin seeds can reduce inflammation and protect cells from free radicals that cause disease. The high levels of antioxidants in pumpkin seeds are responsible for their positive health benefits. Antioxidants are your best weapon for fighting digital-age toxicities.
The high magnesium content of pumpkin seeds may be responsible for its positive effect on diabetes. Pumpkin seeds contain ingredients that have a blood glucose-lowering effect; eating them may help people with diabetes to maintain healthy sugar levels. Animal studies suggest that pumpkin seeds may help improve insulin regulation and help prevent diabetic complications by decreasing oxidative stress.
A good source of antioxidants, magnesium, zinc and fatty acids — all of which will help keep your heart healthy. Studies have also shown that pumpkin seed oil may reduce high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels — two important risk factors for heart disease. Other studies suggest that pumpkin’s ability to increase nitric oxide generation in your body may be responsible for its positive effects on heart health.
Pumpkin seeds are a great source of zinc. Researchers have determined that every 100g contains 7.99 mg of zinc. Males 19 years and older, the NIH recommends a daily intake of 11 mg of zinc and 8 mg for women. In males, low zinc levels are associated with reduced sperm quality. Good sources of zinc may improve sperm quality. In women, low levels of zinc alter circulating levels of multiple hormones associated with the onset of labor. Having additional zinc during pregnancy is likely to improve health outcomes. Zinc is also referred to as the gatekeeper of immune function.
Pumpkin seed is a natural and rich source of tryptophan and amino acids that can help promote sleep. Tryptophan has been used to treat chronic insomnia because the body converts the tryptophan into serotonin. If you have trouble sleeping, you may want to eat some pumpkin seeds with a small amount of carbohydrates, such as a piece of fruit. This may be beneficial in providing your body with the tryptophan needed for melatonin production. Also, pumpkin seeds are an excellent source of magnesium that has been associated with better sleep and is a key mineral for digital detox.
Magnesium plays an important role in over 300 enzymatic reactions within the body, including the metabolism of food and the synthesis of fatty acids and proteins. Magnesium is vital for the proper functioning of muscles and is needed for more than 600 chemical reactions in your body. For example, adequate levels of magnesium are important for controlling blood pressure, reducing heart disease risk, forming healthy bones, and regulating sugar levels. Magnesium helps to stabilize voltage gated calcium channels that are disrupted by EMF/ELF digital toxins.
Sunflower seeds improve cholesterol levels like many beneficial nuts and seeds, and are a rich source of fats, in this case, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated ones. These compounds are found in plants that have a chemical structure similar to cholesterol. When present in the diet in sufficient amounts, they are believed to reduce blood levels of cholesterol, enhance the immune response and decrease the risk of certain cancers. Sunflower seeds are also rich in fiber, which helps to promote bile excretion in feces with the corresponding reduction in overall cholesterol because cholesterol is required for the synthesis of new bile acids.
An excellent source of vitamin E, the body’s primary fat-soluble antioxidant. Vitamin E travels throughout the body neutralizing free radicals that would otherwise damage fat-containing structures and molecules, such as cell membranes, brain cells, and cholesterol. By protecting these cellular and molecular components, vitamin E has significant anti-inflammatory effects that can result in the reduction of symptoms in asthma, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis, conditions where free radicals and inflammation play a big role. Vitamin E has also been shown to reduce the risk of colon cancer.
Getting plenty of vitamin E can significantly reduce the risk of developing atherosclerosis. In fact, studies show that people who get adequate amounts of vitamin E are at a much lower risk of dying of a heart attack than people whose dietary intake of vitamin E is marginal or inadequate. Vitamin E prevents free radicals from oxidizing cholesterol. Only after it has been oxidized is cholesterol able to adhere to blood vessel walls and initiate the process of atherosclerosis, which can lead to blocked arteries, heart attack, or stroke. A compound in sunflower seeds blocks an enzyme that causes blood vessels to constrict. As a result, it may help your blood vessels relax, lowering your blood pressure.
Sunflower seeds contain supporting minerals necessary for optimal bone health. They are alkalizing and are an excellent source of manganese and copper. Both are trace minerals, which are necessary for the synthesis of connective tissue in cartilage and bone. Magnesium, phosphorus, and copper ensure proper bone mineralization. Bone mineralization is a mechanism set in order to guarantee that bone is of a certain “density” to support its weight-bearing responsibilities. Without proper mineralization, bone is structurally weak and prone to easy fractures.
Improves detoxification and cancer prevention by being a good source of selenium, a trace mineral that is of fundamental importance to human health. Accumulated evidence from prospective studies, intervention trials and studies on animal models of cancer has suggested a strong inverse correlation between selenium intake and cancer incidence. Selenium has been shown to induce DNA repair and synthesis in damaged cells to inhibit the proliferation of cancer cells, and to induce their apoptosis, the self-destruct sequences the body uses to eliminate worn out or abnormal cells.
Calm your nerves, muscles and blood vessels with an excellent source of magnesium. Magnesium counterbalances calcium, thus helping to regulate nerve and muscle tone. In many nerve cells, magnesium serves as nature’s own calcium channel blocker, preventing calcium from rushing into the nerve cell and activating the nerve. By blocking calcium’s entry, magnesium keeps our nerves (and the blood vessels and muscles they ennervate) relaxed. EMF’s overstimulate calcium channels; magnesium plays a critical role in digital detox by stabilizing these channels.
Studies have shown a positive correlation between the intake of flavonoids in berries and memory improvement. Raspberries and other berries are well-known for their protection against age-related decline of memory and their ability to enhance cognitive performance. One reason berries are so beneficial for brain health is because the flavonoids they contain are able to cross the blood-brain barrier. This enables them to influence the region in the brain associated with memory and motor function.
A Medical News Today report associated the intake of flavonoid-rich foods like raspberries with a lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease. One group of flavonoids in particular – anthocyanins – have been shown to suppress the inflammation that may lead to cardiovascular disease. Also, high polyphenol content can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by preventing platelet buildup and reducing blood pressure via anti-inflammatory mechanisms.
Eating high-fiber food helps keep blood sugar stable. Studies have shown that type 1 diabetics who consume high-fiber diets have lower blood glucose levels, and type 2 diabetics may have improved blood sugar, lipid, and insulin levels. The fiber in raspberries helps prevent constipation and maintain a healthy digestive tract. Furthermore, raspberries are high in tannins, which block alpha-amylase, a digestive enzyme necessary for breaking down starch.
Raspberries are high in several powerful antioxidant compounds, including vitamin C, quercetin, and ellagic acid. Antioxidants help your cells fight and recover from oxidative stress and work against free radicals, decreasing inflammation in the body and inhibiting tumor growth. Oxidative stress is linked to a higher risk of cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. The same potent polyphenols that protect against heart disease also help ward off or slow many types of cancer.
Blueberries are believed to have one of the highest antioxidant levels of all common fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants help our bodies protect against age-related health risks. Every day, our cells wage a battle against free radicals – unstable oxygen molecules that are a normal byproduct of metabolism. When you aren’t getting enough antioxidants in your diet, free radicals can build up in your body, causing oxidative stress, which is associated with cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other diseases of aging.
Oxidative DNA damage is an unavoidable part of everyday life. It occurs tens of thousands of times per day in every cell in your body. DNA damage is part of the reason why we grow older and it plays an important role in the development of diseases like cancer. Because blueberries are high in antioxidants, they can neutralize many of the free radicals that damage your DNA. Several studies suggest that blueberries and blueberry juice reduce DNA damage, which is a leading driver of aging and cancer.
Oxidation is problematic when your ‘bad cholesterol’ (LDL) is oxidized. Research suggests that the high fiber content abundant in blueberries helps dissolve the LDL (bad) cholesterol and is strongly linked to reducing the level of oxidized LDL. This makes blueberries very good for your heart and an ideal dietary supplement to prevent many heart diseases while also strengthening cardiac muscles. They also contain potassium, calcium, and magnesium, which help reduce blood pressure.
Oxidative stress accelerates your brain’s aging process, negatively impacting brain function. Harvard researchers measured cognitive function in 16,010 participants 70 years and older in the Nurses’ Health Study. Based on dietary questionnaires, they concluded that eating more blueberries slowed cognitive decline by up to 2.5 years. The berries can also lower your risk of suffering from disorders like Alzheimer’s disease to a great extent, according to a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
Strenuous exercise can lead to muscle soreness and fatigue. This is driven partly by local inflammation and oxidative stress in your muscle tissue. The antioxidants in blueberries have anti-inflammatory properties. They reduce the activity of markers of inflammation and may lessen the damage that occurs at a molecular level, minimizing soreness and reduced muscle performance. In a small study of 10 female athletes, blueberries accelerated muscle recovery after strenuous leg exercises.
The bottom line is blueberries are incredibly healthy, nutritious and have many health benefits. They boost heart health, and the anthocyanins in blueberries also protect your lungs as you get older. Flavonoid-rich wild blueberries help enhance mood and act as an effective antidepressant. They can also treat urinary tract infections. Blueberries can kill bacterial colonies like E. coli which can be responsible for urinary tract infections. They have a compound formed of large, polymer-like molecules, which inhibit the growth of such bacteria.
The elderberry is perhaps most famously used for the treatment of colds and flu. Research shows the use of elderberry could shorten the duration of the flu by about three to four days, along with lessening symptom severity if taken within the first 24 hours of having the flu. Along with being a supportive agent against the flu, elderberry is well-known in its fight against the common cold, particularly related to its vitamin A and C content.
During normal metabolism, reactive molecules that can accumulate in the body may be released. This can cause oxidative stress and lead to the development of diseases like type 2 diabetes and cancer. Antioxidants are natural components of foods, including some vitamins, phenolic acids and flavonoids, that are able to remove these reactive molecules. Research suggests that diets high in antioxidants may help prevent chronic disease.
Elderberries are a great source of flavonoids and anthocyanins. These powerful antioxidants work to keep the immune system strong and resilient. Dr. Gerhard Rechkemmer’s, President of Germany’s Federal Research Institute for Nutrition and Food, research has shown that the anthocyanins in elderberries boost the production of cytokines – proteins that act as messengers within the immune system – thereby enhancing the body’s immune response.
Infused with innate anti-aging and free-radical fighting properties, elderberries keep your skin radiant for longer periods. The anthocyanins in elderberries were found to give a natural boost to your skin’s health. This compound also protects against skin damage. Elderberry is also a rich source of vitamins A and C, each showing to moisturize the skin and maintain its integrity. In fact, distilled elderberry flower water is known to restore skin health and lighten freckles.
Elderberry displays numerous anti-inflammatory activities, particularly related to its anthocyanin and vitamins A and C contents. Inflammation has shown to be the root of many chronic diseases, which may label elderberry as a contender against the fight against cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
The high fiber content of elderberries can help to eliminate constipation, reduce excess gas and generally increase the health of the gastrointestinal system. The dietary fiber contained in these berries can also increase nutrient uptake efficiency, especially in the gut, helping you to get more out of the food that you eat.
Elderberries are rich in potassium and can help regulate blood pressure. They ensure the blood vessels relax. Elderberries also contain beneficial compounds called anthocyanins, which protect the inner layer of the blood vessels from oxidative stress. This protects the cells from inflammatory stressors, ultimately improving circulation and cutting the risk of heart disease.
There are many other reported benefits of elderberry, though most of these have limited scientific evidence: it is thought that they could protect against UV radiation, strengthen bones, and help treat diabetes. Being rich in vitamins A and B6, elderberries might also help prevent serious vision ailments like glaucoma and macular degeneration.
Fiber is great for overall gut health, and cranberries are packed with it—one cup has about 4.6 grams of fiber, Graham says. “This is important because we need fiber for a healthy digestive system and to maintain regular bowel movements,” Dr. Shilpi Agarwal adds. Plus, fiber keeps you fuller longer, which means you’re less likely to reach for a not-so-healthy snack.
The proanthocyanidins in cranberries may benefit oral health. They do this by preventing bacteria from binding to teeth, according to researchers at the Center for Oral Biology and Eastman Department of Dentistry at the University of Rochester Medical Center. Cranberries may also be beneficial in preventing gum disease.
Some evidence suggests that the polyphenols in cranberries may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). It does this by preventing platelet build-up and reducing blood pressure through anti-inflammatory mechanisms. The vitamins and minerals they contain boost the body’s digestive health and antioxidant system and promote good heart health – even possibly improving blood pressure and cholesterol.
Cranberries are loaded with vitamin C and give your immune system a boost. Just one cup of cranberries contains 22 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin C. If you’re feeling under the weather, load up on cranberries to help your body fight back. People who are susceptible to certain infections and medical complications can help keep disorders such as the common cold, flu, and viral infections at bay by drinking cranberry juice on a daily basis.
Cranberries contain plenty of B vitamins such as vitamin B3 and vitamin B12 – as well as vitamin C. Together, these vitamins can help keep your skin adequately hydrated and boost collagen production. As cranberry juice is acidic in nature, it will also help naturally remove dead skin cells. This is primarily why so many people prepare an organic, chemical-free skin toner using cranberry juice.
Cranberries contain anthocyanins, flavones, and proanthocyanidins – all of which are very effective at keeping stomach infection and gastrointestinal complications at bay. These enzymes play an instrumental role in keeping peptic ulcers from developing in the stomach. They do this by completely minimizing the prevalence of H. pylori bacteria. This bacterium can cause inflammation in the lining of your stomach.
Tigernuts are one of the richest sources of non-meat protein and supply plenty of energy essentials for carrying out heavy work throughout the day. The latent benefit of plant proteins is the lower amount of fat and cholesterol. Consumed regularly, tigernuts are the ideal and perfect antioxidant for cleansing diets and the elimination of toxins (this is based on detox diets of fruits and green leafy vegetables, which may be low in protein). Tigernuts can serve as a great source of protein on a permanent basis.
Tigernuts are loaded with a plentiful amount of amino acids of various types, especially arginine. The Mayo Foundation promotes L-arginine as the nitric oxide precursor, which maintains the width of blood vessels to ensure normal blood flow. Arginine is helpful in providing solutions for conditions due to restricted blood vessels, including clogged arterial, chest pain, erectile dysfunction, heart disease or failure, artery diseases, muscle cramps, and headaches.
Tigernuts are packed with fiber. The healthy and balanced fiber provided by tigernuts does not raise blood glucose levels and they are, therefore, excellent at preventing and combating diabetes. Tigernuts are also presumed to contain resistant starch, a type of fiber that can feed the friendly bacteria in your gut, helping your digestion run smoothly. The fiber helps the organism to prevent constipation and acts as an appetite suppressant, which helps us to control our body weight.
By consuming only 100 grams of Tigernuts, your body gets 13% to 17% of the daily recommended dose of magnesium. This mineral stays active in the body and participates in more than 300 biochemical reactions. According to the Office of Dietary Supplements, magnesium is highly vital for the normal functioning of the body. A good way to be full of energy is to provide the body with a daily dose of magnesium. Magnesium is ideal, along with proteins, for muscle development.
Tigernuts are rich in potassium. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, potassium is one of the few essential minerals that contribute to the proper functioning of the cell and body organs, especially the heart. Potassium is essential to maintain proper regulation of muscle contraction, digestive functions, and to control blood pressure levels.
Tigernuts are an excellent source of iron, which is important because it is an essential component of hemoglobin, the compound that helps to deliver oxygen to your cells. Adding tigernuts to your diet enhances your overall health. Tigernuts contain more than iron than the milk of cow and as much as liver or red meat. You can snack on tiger nuts or bake them with tiger nut flour. You can add plenty of vitamins and minerals by eating tigernuts. It strengthens your whole body.
Tigernuts can be ground into a lactose-free milk that is high in calcium. Moreover, the vitamin E and C in tigernuts offers additional benefits not found in cow’s milk. A study suggested that tigernut milk holds up nutritionally as well as soybean as a milk substitute. It can even be mixed with cow’s milk in yogurts without affecting taste or texture while upping the nutritional value.
Tigernut has a lipid profile which is very similar to that of olive oil, which is considered one of the healthiest oils. Tigernut oil has nothing to envy from the traditional “health” oil. Its oil is full of healthy power. Because of its high levels of monounsaturated fats, it can help reduce bad cholesterol levels in your blood which can lower your risk of heart disease and stroke. They also provide nutrients to help develop and maintain your body’s cells.
Moringa oleifera is very rich in healthy antioxidants and bioactive plant compounds. Moringa has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties that fight infections. Moringa leaves are high in several anti-aging compounds that lower the effects of oxidative stress and inflammation, including polyphenols, vitamin C, beta-carotene, quercetin, and chlorogenic acid. These are associated with a reduced risk of chronic disease.
Chlorella is a single-celled, green freshwater algae. This algae, among its many other benefits, increases glutathione, a “master” antioxidant, and helps the body detox. Furthermore, chlorella has been shown to help lower the amount of other harmful chemicals that are sometimes found in food. One of these is dioxin, a hormone disruptor that can contaminate animals in the food supply.
Spirulina detoxes heavy metals, especially arsenic which is affecting people all over the globe. Used after Chernobyl, spirulina reduced urine radioactivity by 50% in 20 days. Some evidence suggests that spirulina has anti-cancer properties. Spirulina’s effects on oral cancer – or cancer of the mouth – have been particularly well studied.
Apple pectin is a dietary fiber that contributes to digestive health. Studies have proven that apple pectin is able to reduce the effects of radiation exposure. It is able to get rid of heavy metals under the skin, including the radioactive Strontium 90. Sure, you could eat an apple, but you could also take a fruit pectin supplement to reap the benefits.
Turmeric contains curcumin, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Chronic inflammation contributes to many common “Western” diseases. Curcumin can suppress many molecules known to play a major role in inflammation. Curcumin has powerful antioxidant effects. It neutralizes free radicals on its own but also stimulates your body’s antioxidant enzymes. Curcumin leads to several changes on the molecular level that may help prevent and perhaps even treat cancer. Due to its many positive health effects, such as the potential to prevent heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and cancer, curcumin may aid longevity.
Shiitake mushrooms are brown-capped mushrooms used around the world. Shiitake mushrooms are low in calories. They offer many vitamins, minerals, and other health-promoting compounds. Shiitake has a long history of use, both as a food and in supplements. Several compounds in shiitake help lower cholesterol and may reduce your risk of heart disease. Eating shiitake mushrooms regularly may help boost your immune system. Lentinan is a polysaccharide in shiitake mushrooms that may help fight cancer. Shiitake with higher vitamin D levels may improve your overall health and bone density.
Sunflower seeds are an excellent source of several nutrients — including vitamin E and selenium — and beneficial plant compounds that can help prevent chronic disease. Sunflower seeds contain nutrients and plant compounds that help reduce your risk of inflammation, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. Sunflower seeds may help lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar as they contain vitamin E, magnesium, protein, linoleic fatty acids, and several plant compounds. Furthermore, studies link sunflower seeds to multiple other health benefits.
Beets are loaded with vitamins and minerals and are low in fat and calories. They also contain inorganic nitrates and pigments, both of which have a number of health benefits. Beets contain a high concentration of nitrates, which have a blood pressure-lowering effect. This may lead to a reduced risk of heart attack, heart failure, and stroke. Eating beets may enhance athletic performance by improving oxygen use and time to exhaustion. The nitrates in beets may also help increase blood flow to the brain, improve cognitive function, and possibly reduce the risk of dementia. However, more research in this area is needed.
