Did you know that would keep you young?

Hi guys,

 

Happy hump day!

Here are some facts on foods which I bet you didn’t know about:

  • Blueberries help your brain stay young because they are high in flavanoid (compound found in fruits and vegetables) which is a super effective antioxidant.

  • Grapes will help keep your skin looking young because they are high in resveratol, a powerful anti-inflammatory and a protector against UV radiation. Go ahead, drink some wine too, same effects!

Image

  • Barley is a great belly blaster as study shows that non-refined whole grains (quinoa, amaranth too) help reducing belly fat.

Image

  • Black beans are rich in fibers and will help protect against colon cancer as the fibers speed up digestion and eliminate carcinogens.

  • Flaxseed help reduce cholesterol as it is packed with Omega 3 that help fight plaque buildup

Image

  • Hard cheeses will be packed with calcium and therefore help keep your bones strong and protect against osteoporosis.

Image

 

  • Broccoli (come on it’s not that bad) is in the cruciferous vegetable family full of phytonutrients that decrease inflammation and help protect against cancer (lung, stomach)

Image

  • Apples are packed with fiber and pectin that helps reduce cholesterol.

Image

  • Ginger is high in antioxidants and a great anti inflammatory  that will help relieve muscle soreness pains. Against popular belief, it is not proven to enhance sexual performance sorry everyone!

Ciao for now!
