COLD AND ALLERGY PROTECTION JUICE Share | Like | Comment l Repost http://www.facebook.com/pages/Rawforvitality/177654739026014 APPLES: Among the many AMAZING health benefits of the often-overlooked apple, Red apples contain an antioxidant called quercetin. Recent studies have found that quercetin boosts and strengthens your immune system, especially when you're stressed out. This is so important, because a weak immune system makes us vulnerable to both colds AND allergies. Another great benefit? Research has been showing that drinking apple juice could keep Alzheimer’s away and fight the effects of aging on the brain. Apple juice increases the levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine which is important for brain function and health. GINGER: Also a powerhouse in the plant food world, ginger has been used for thousands of years as a natural treatment for colds and flu. The University of Maryland Medical Center found that 1-2 tbsp. of freshly shredded ginger root in hot water, or juiced, two to three times a day, is extremely preventive against both colds and flu. Ginger also helps to expand your lungs and loosen up phlegm, which assists people with allergy symptoms. Ginger is strengthening to the immune system, decreases bacterial infections in the stomach, and helps fight a cough and throat irritation. Consuming about a tablespoon or two of ginger DAILY can also help prevent potential risk of a stroke by inhibiting fatty deposits from the arteries. CARROT JUICE: Carrot juice deserves it own post, it truly is the king of juices! Carrot juice is the richest source of vitamin A and a good supply of vitamins B, C, D, E, G, and K, all of which strengthen the immune system. From: RawganicVegan

THE INCREDIBLE BENEFITS OF BEETS Share | Like | Comment l Repost http://www.facebook.com/pages/Rawforvitality/177654739026014 A single serving of beets can boost your energy and lower your blood pressure. Eating beets long-term can help you fight cancer, reduce arthritic pain, and lose weight, as well as assisting in a number of other health areas. Many people don’t like beets or consider it only a special occasion dish, but we think this powerfood should be on your plate every day. 8 Healthy Reasons to Eat Beets: 1. Weight Loss Beets taste sweet, but a cup of cooked beet contains only 60 calories and is full of fiber. This is a perfect food for weight management. The sugars in beets are smart carbs, since they come in a natural whole food form. Unlike white sugar, the beet calories come with a lot of nutrients and phytochemicals. 2. Brain and Energy Boost Beets are high in natural nitrates, which are converted to nitric oxide in the body. Nitric oxide is known to expand the walls of blood vessels so you can enjoy more oxygen, more nutrients, and more energy. Studies have shown nitric oxide to increase the efficiency of the mitochondria (your energy powerhouses). The results of these studies were impressive. A single small serving (70 ml) of beetroot juice reduced resting blood pressure by 2%. A single small serving increased the length of time professional divers could hold their breath by 11%. Cyclists who drank a single larger serving (500 ml) of beetroot juice were able to ride up to 20% longer. 3. Nature’s Viagra One of the first known uses of beets was by the ancient Romans, who used them medicinally as an aphrodisiac. Many plants have been considered an aphrodisiac by some culture at some time, but in this case it may be more than just wishful thinking. As noted above, beets can increase blood flow due to their nitrates. Increased blood flow to the genital areas is one of the mechanisms Viagra and other pharmaceuticals create their effects. Beets also contain high amounts of boron, which is directly related to the production of human sex hormones.
