Amazing Health Benefit of Lemons

Lemon 

Lemon Juice

This is something that we should all take seriously. I just had a recent test myself that sent shivers up my spine. Even doctors are now saying that there is value in trying LEMON.

So, a tablespoon of "real lemon" (the concentrate in a bottle) in a glass of water every morning. What can it hurt?

This is the latest in medicine, effective for cancer! Read carefully & you be the judge.

Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy.

Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits. You can now help a friend in need by letting him/her know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy. How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations?

As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes.

You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc... It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors. This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some say it is very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant, combats stress and nervous disorders.

The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that: It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas...The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells. And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.

 Health Benefits of Beets

 Beets

Antioxidants

Like all richly hued vegetables, beets are high in phytonutrients and antioxidants. What’s unusual about beets, however, are the nutrients that supply the antioxidants. While many vegetables contain carotenoids and beta-carotene, and most red vegetables derive their pigement from anthocyanins, beets get their color from a type of nutrient known as betalains. (Red-purple beets are colored by betacyanins, and yellow beets are colored by betanins.) In addition to betalains, beets also contain vitamin C and manganese, making this root vegetable a rich source of diversified antioxidants.

Anti-Inflammatory

Betalains, along with other phytonutrients present in beets such as isobetanin and vulgaxanthin, possess anti-inflammatory properties, making them useful in helping to prevent conditions that are associated with chronic inflammation, such as heart disease and diabetes.

Brain Health

A recent study found that drinking beet juice improved blood flow to parts of the brain whose degeneration is associated with Alzeheimer’s disease and other forms of cognitive impairment. Beets contain high levels of nitrates, which produce nitric oxide in the blood, causing blood vessels to widen and thereby deliver more oxygen to the brain.

Heart Health

Naturally, opening up the blood vessels is also good for heart health. In a study published in the American Heart Association’s Hypertension journal, researchers found that drinking just one glass of beet juice significantly lowered blood pressure in patients within just 24 hours. Another study at the William Harvey Research Institute in London found that beet juice lowered blood pressure as effectively as nitrate pills.

Natural Detox

Beets help the body’s natural detox process in several ways. First, the betalains in beets trigger the production of a family of enzymes known as glutathione-S-transferase, which attach free toxins in the body to glutathione for removal from the body. Second, beets are high in fiber, which is important for keeping food and waste products moving through and out of the gastrointestinal tract. (Discover six more cleansing foods for a natural detox.)

Beets are rich in folate, good for heart health and recommend for pregnant women to help prevent neural tube defects in developing children; magnesium, which helps regulate vitamin D in the body and can help relax the nervous system; potassium, essential to heart function; iron; and other essential minerals.


Health Benefits of Pycnogenol

Pycnogenol

"The miracle antioxidant Pycnogenol® is considered by

 many experts to be the greatest nutritional breakthrough of our century"

 What is Pycnogenol® French maritime pine bark extract?  

Pycnogenol® is a natural plant extract from the bark of the Maritime Pine, pinus maritima, growing along the coast of south-west France, in the Landes of Gascony. Pycnogenol® is a water-soluble flavonoid extract with highly bioavailable procyanidins, catechins, taxifolins and the typical spectrum of phenolic acids.

                           Flavonoids, a gift from mother nature  

For centuries, herbalists have recommended plant extracts - barks, roots, leaves - to treat people's ills. Today, nutritionists and doctors recommend diets rich in fruits and vegetables to prevent the same diseases. The scientific reason for the success of these diets have recently become apparent. Fruits,vegetables and herbs contain flavonoids - the type of polyphenolic antioxidants found in Pycnogenol®. While all these flavonoids are found in a broad range of fruits, vegetables and herbs, Pycnogenol® provides an optimal combination of polyphenols in a concentrated form in this single supplement.  

                          Action  

Pycnogenol® has proof of its bioavailability in man. Pycnogenol®, a powerful blend of antioxidants and a natural anti-inflammatory agent, helps your body to combat environmental stress, keeps your circulatory system fit and combats joint inflammation. Pycnogenol® improves and normalizes capillary activity and strengthens capillary walls. It helps restore flexibility to arterial walls. Pycnogenol® binds collagen fibers, realigning them in the process to more youthful, undamaged structures. Elasticity and flexible strength is restored to connective tissue. The versatility goes beyond the fact that Pycnogenol® is a potent blend of antioxidants: its benefits are also due to it being a unique vitamin C "action-helper". Current research has shown that Pycnogenol® reduces the risk circulatory diseases (stroke, vascular and heart diseases) , reduces inflammation (arthritis, edema), maintains skin health and helps alleviate a variety of other conditions.  

                     Suggested dosage  

             1.5 - 3.0 mg per Kilogram of body weight (2.2 lbs. = 1Kg) per day for 7 to 10

           days followed by a maintenance Dose of 50 to 100 mg per day.

           (Approximately 1mg/1Kg of body weight per day)  

History

Pine bark flavonoid polyphenols were  used by the native Indians of North America in a tea brewed from the bark of pine trees growing along the Atlantic coast. History indicates that pine bark was used medicinally as early as the 13th century. French explorer Jacques Cartier was introduced to the tea when Indians saved most of his crew from death by scurvy during the winter of 1534. More than 400 Years later Universities began studies on flavonoids. Their search for bio-active flavonoids eventually led them to French coastal pine bark, where they found a rich source of a narrow group of highly bioavailable and bio-active flavonoids in the bark of the French maritime pine of Landes de Gascogne. Horphag's continuing work by researchers in France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Switzerland and the United States over the last 30 years has confirmed the chemical structure, effects and absence of toxicity in Pycnogenol®.

 

Pycnogenol® is a registered trademark of Horphag Research Ltd and its application is protected by U.S. patent #4,698,360 and other international patents.

The Story

This wonderful tree has done in less than a week what all the physicians of Louvain and  Montpellier, using all the drugs of Alexandria, would not be able to accomplish in a year.  Jacques Cartier, Voyages au Canada

 

The Pycnogenol® Story begins in the frigid waters of the St. Lawrence River in the winter of 1534. After discovering Canada's Gulf of St. Lawrence, French explorer Jacques Cartier and his crew attempted to make their way down the river. Trapped in five feet of snow and ice-blocked water-ways, the expedition was forced to spend the bitter winter months on the Quebec peninsula. The entire river was frozen above Hochelaga.

Existing only on salted meat and biscuits, Cartier's men became seriously ill with what later was thought to be scurvy. Twenty-five of the 110 man crew died and half of the remaining crew were too weak to take care of themselves. Fortunately for his crew, Cartier met a Quebec Indian named Agaya, who told him of the Annedda pine tree. Agaya explained how to strip the needles, pull the bark from the tree and brew a tea. The tea was to be taken every other day. Cartier immediately followed Agaya's instructions, and two of his men volunteered to try the teas. Within one week, they improved so dramatically that the rest of the crew eagerly awaited their first sip of the brew. 

According to Cartier's account in his travel log. "As soon as they had taken it, they asked for more which turned out to be a miracle as for every illness with which they were afflicted, they were cured and restored to health." Cartier's documentation of the incident remained hidden in his travel log for over four centuries.    

Then, a French professor, Jacques Masquelier, on assignment at the University of  Quebec, came across Cartier's account of how an extraordinary tea had saved his men's lives. Intrigued by Cartier's account, he suspected that the pine bark was rich in bioflavonoids. Upon returning to France, Masquelier went to work isolating the active ingredients from the pine bark samples.  His research revealed highly bioactive substances called proanthocyanidins. Very few species of pines contain significant quantities of this substance.

One of the rich resources of proanthocyanidins is the French maritime pine (Pinus maritima) found in the Bordeaux region of southern France. Today, Pycnogenol® is trademarked and produced under a U.S. Patent owned by Horphag Research, Ltd.  It is harvested and manufactured in a tightly controlled environment from the bark of the naturally grown maritime pine tree. From the frozen shores of  the ST. Lawrence River over 400 years ago to the Les Landes forest of Bordeaux, the only true Pycnogenol® is now.

 Health Benefits of Blueberries

 

Health Benefits of Blueberries Source: U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council, Health Section From research labs all across the country and the world, there is growing evidence that blueberries could be powerful little disease fighters. Here is what we have learned so far...

 Antioxidants - Researchers at the USDA Human Nutrition Center (HNRCA) have found that blueberries rank #1 in antioxidant activity when compared to 40 other fresh fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants help neutralize harmful by-products of metabolism called "free radicals" that can lead to cancer and other age related diseases. Anthocyanin -- the pigment that makes the blueberries blue -- is thought to be responsible for this major health benefit.

Anti-Aging - In another USDA Human Nutrition Center (HNRCA) lab, neuroscientists discovered that feeding blueberries to laboratory rats slowed age-related loss in their mental capacity, a finding that has important implications for humans. Again, the high antioxidant activity of blueberries probably played a role.

Disease Prevention - Blueberries may reduce the build up of so called "bad" cholesterol that contributes to cardiovascular disease and stroke, according to scientists at the University of California at Davis. Antioxidants are believed to be the active component.

Prevention of Urinary Tract Infections - Researchers at Rutgers University in New Jersey have identified a compound in blueberries that promotes urinary tract health and reduces the risk of infection. It appears to work by preventing bacteria from adhering to the cells that line the walls of the urinary tract.

Blueberries and Eyesight - A number of studies in Europe have documented the relationship between bilberries, the European cousin of blueberries and improved eyesight. This is thought to occur because of the anthocyanin in the blue pigment which is also available in the blueberry. One study in Japan documented that blueberries helped ease eye fatigue.

New Research Cholesterol Reducing Blueberries - At the recent American Chemical Society meeting it was reported that a compound found in blueberries called pterostilbene has "the potential to be developed into a nutraceutical for lowering cholesterol, particularly for those who do not respond well to conventional drugs," reports foodnavigator.com (8/24/04). Study authors from the USDA's Agricultural Research Service (ARS) indicate that the compound found in Vaccinium berries could be a "potent weapon in the battle against obesity and heart disease through its cholesterol-reducing potential." Head researcher, Agnes M. Rimando and her associates "earlier showed that this compound may help fight cancer." An abstract of the study is found on the Agricultural Research Service website which also studied the presence of resveratrol and piceatannol . According to the technical abstract, "These naturally occurring stilbenes, known to be strong antioxidants and to have cancer chemopreventive activity, will add to purported health benefits derived from consumption of these small fruits." Ethnobotany and Blueberries: Blueberries have been associated with positive physiological and cosmetic benefits for centuries.

Here we list non scientific information which although not endorsed by the USHBC, may be of interest to researchers as a direction for further research.

• Blueberry Health and Nutrition traditions in China. (under construction)

• Native American and First Nations of Canada blueberry health and medicinal traditions. (under construction)

• Blueberry health and nutrition in Russia and Central European Traditions. (under construction) Nutrition Summary - The following summarizes some of the published research in the area of nutraceuticals and health. The belief that food products have medicinal properties has been celebrated in folk medicine for centuries. Today food properties are being explored by the medical and scientific fields. Some cultures have long valued many naturally occurring substances believed to have preventative and therapeutic value. In the United States, nutraceuticals are part of a rapidly expanding area of biomedical research, generating considerable interest among consumers, manufacturers, and regulators alike. This is a progressive area; the field is continually conducting studies and discovering possible benefits. Though blueberries themselves are not a cure-all, they contain a number of substances which are thought to have health benefits. These substances include, but are not limited to fructose, fiber, vitamins and antioxidants. Antioxidants thus far, seem to have the most conclusive role in the prevention/ delaying of such diseases as cancer, heart disease and the aging process however, a limited number of studies, especially long term and on human beings, are not available at this time.

Health Benefits of Acai Berries

acaiberries

Health benefits of acai berry:

■ Acai berry has very good levels of anti-oxidants, minerals, and vitamins that have health benefiting and disease preventing properties.

■ Unlike other berries and fruits, acai has high caloric values and fats. 100 g of berries provide about 80-250 calories depending up on the preparation and serving methods. In fact, fresh acai berry has been the staple nutritious diet of native Amazonian for centuries. There is no solid research evidence suggesting the use of these berries will help lose weight.

■ Acai berry contains many polyphenolic anthocyanin compounds like resveratrol, cyanidin-3-galactoside, ferulic acid, delphinidin, petunidin as well as astringent pro-anthocyanidin tannins like epicatechin, protocatechuic acid and ellagic acid. Scientific studies suggest that these compounds have been claimed to act as anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer functions by virtue of their anti-free radical fighting actions. In addition, tannins are known to have anti-infective, anti-inflammatory and anti-hemorrhagic properties.

■ Primary research studies suggest that ellagic acid in acai has anti-proliferative properties by virtue of its ability to directly inhibit DNA binding of certain carcinogens (nitrosamine toxins in the food).

■ Acai berry is also rich in medium chain fatty acids like oleic acid (omega-9) and linoleic acid (omega-6). These compounds help reduce LDL-cholesterol level and raise good HDL-cholesterol levels in the body and thus help prevent heart disease. In addition, the essential fats help prevent skin dryness by maintaining adequate moisture in the skin.

■ Acai pulp has good levels of dietary fiber. Adequate fiber in the diet helps clear cholesterol through the stools.

■ ORAC value (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) of acai berry is thought to be at mid-level range for fruits, higher than that of oranges but less than pomegranate. USDA so far not validated exact ORAC value of acai.

■ Acai berries contain a good amount of minerals like potassium, manganese, copper, iron, and magnesium. Potassium is 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.

■ Further, they are rich in B-complex vitamins and vitamin-K. Contain very good amounts of niacin, vitamin B-6 and riboflavin. These vitamins are function as co-factors and help body in the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Acai uses in traditional medicine

■ Acai extracts have been used by Amazon basin tribes as the treatment remedy for diarrhea, parasitic infections, hemorrhages, and ulcer treatment.

 ■ A kind of decoction obtained from crushed seeds has been used in the treatment of fever.

■ Decoction obtained from the roots has been used in the treatment of menstrual pain, liver diseases, malaria in Peruvian culture.

Health Benefits of Royal Jelly

 Royal Jelly

 What is Royal Jelly?

One of the reasons Royal Jelly is so precious is it can't be duplicated in a laboratory; it can only be hand harvested from beehives in very minute amounts. In more ancient times, Royal Jelly’s use was limited to people of royalty or great wealth, because it simply wasn’t available. While Royal Jelly is no less precious today, it is more widely available because of advances in the science of bee keeping and cultivation of Royal Jelly.

The Queen Bee's Story
– where Royal Jelly comes from...

The Queen Bee’s story begins in the hive where each little bee starts out genetically identical. But, as nature would have it, only one bee is selected to feed on Royal Jelly … and that bee grows into a beautiful Queen Bee, who lives for up to approximately six years. Worker bees, which eat only honey and pollen, live for approximately six weeks! The only difference between the two is the Royal Jelly.

Royal Jelly is a natural substance from the bee hive that has been used for many years by people throughout the world for increased energy, stamina, and vitality. The exclusive food of the Queen Bee, Royal Jelly is composed of trace amounts of many wonderful nutrients and nutritious, biologically-active compounds. Some of the naturally occurring nutrients in Royal Jelly are:

• B complex vitamin
• amino acids (building blocks of protein)
• minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, and zinc
• lipids, including fatty acids and phospholipids
• peptides
• carbohydrates (monosaccharides and disaccharides)
• nucleic acids
• 10-HDA (a compound unique to Royal Jelly)

 These are only some of the royal jelly benefits that are scientifically proven:

Thanks to the amino acids it contains it slows the effect of aging and helps to produce collagen in the skin.

  •  The amino acids also help to boost the immune system and therefore protect against infections, and autoimmune diseases such as arthritis.

  •  Royal jelly benefits from hormone content is effective in balancing and regulating the female hormone system, thus reducing the effects of PMS and improving fertility.

  • It has proved very effective in treating Graves Disease, a serious thyroid condition.

  •  It has been shown to have the ability to stimulate the growth of glial cells and neural stem cells in the brain, thus helping to prevent conditions such as Parkinsons and Alzheimers

Ginseng

The numerous royal jelly benefits can be increased even more when combined with powder from the ginseng plant. Ginseng is a fleshy root found naturally in Asia, North America and Siberia. It has many health and nutrition benefits in its own right, but these are even more powerful when combined with royal jelly. The benefits of ginseng royal jelly include:

·        It enables higher energy levels and reduction of fatigue.

·        It improves brain function and enables better clarity and alertness.

·        It combats free radicals that cause cancers and autoimmune diseases.

 

 Ginger

Ginger

The Benefits of Ginger

  1. Maintains Normal Blood Circulation. Ginger contains chromium, magnesium and zinc which can help to improve blood flow, as well as help prevent chills, fever, and excessive sweat.

  2. Remedies Motion Sickness. Ginger is a known effective remedy for the nausea associated with motion sickness. The exact reason is unknown, but in a study of naval cadets, those given ginger powder suffered less.

  3. Improves absorption. Ginger improves the absorption and stimulation of essential nutrients in the body. It does this by stimulating gastric and pancreatic enzyme secretion.

  4. Cold and Flu Prevention. Ginger has been used for thousands of years as a natural treatment for colds and flu around Asia. The University of Maryland Medical Center states that to treat cold and flu symptoms in adults, steep 2 tbsp. of freshly shredded or chopped ginger root in hot water, two to three times a day

  5. Combats Stomach Discomfort. Ginger is ideal in assisting digestion, thereby improving food absorption and avoiding possible stomach ache. Ginger appears to reduce inflammation in a similar way to aspirin and ibuprofen

  6. Colon Cancer Prevention. A study at the University of Minnesota found that ginger may slow the growth of colorectal cancer cells.

  7. Reduce Pain and Inflammation. Ginger contains some of the most potent anti-inflammatory fighting substances known and is a natural powerful painkiller.

  8. Fights Common Respiratory Problems. If you’re suffering from common respiratory diseases such as a cough, ginger aids in expanding your lungs and loosening up phlegm because it is a natural expectorant that breaks down and removes mucus.. That way you can quickly recover from difficulty in breathing.

  9. Ovarian Cancer Treatment. Ginger powder induces cell death in ovarian cancer cells.

  10. Strengthens Immunity. Ginger helps improve the immune system. Consuming a little bit ginger a day can help foil potential risk of a stroke by inhibiting fatty deposits from the arteries. It also decreases bacterial infections in the stomach, and helps battle a bad cough and throat irritation.

  11. Combats Morning Sickness. Ginger has demonstrated a success rate of 75 percent in curing morning sickness and stomach flu.
