Acai Berry vs Pomegranate

Pomegranates and Acai Berries – Powerful Superfoods

Pomegranates - Illustration of Punica Granatum The Acai berry and pomegranates are two of the most talked about superfoods in the health food industry. Both are an amazing natural source for many important vitamins and minerals. The question is; if you can only use one or the other which is better? This article is going to pit these two superfoods against each other and help you decide which one to pick.

In The Far Corner Wearing The Red Trunks We Have The Pomegranate!

The pomegranate is a sweet and tart tasting fruit that is native to Iran and northern India. There are many stories and legends surrounding this fruit, and it has been said that Helen of Troy used pomegranates to help make her more beautiful. Those legends all have some truth behind them, because the pomegranate is one of the healthiest fruits on the planet. Here are some of the main benefits you get from eating pomegranates:

  • Has a high level of antioxidants (10,500 on the ORAC Assay)
  • Is rich in vitamin C, A, E and folic acid
  • Reduces plaque in arteries and raises the levels of good cholesterol
  • Prevents enzymes from damaging cartilage
  • Fights cancer cells
  • Slows down aging

Those all sound great; now let’s take a look at how Acai stacks up

In The Near Corner Wearing The Purple Trunks We Have The Acai Berry!

Acai is a small purple berry that is native to the Amazon Rainforests. It is a staple for the native people, and has recently exploded in popularity around the world. It has an amazing flavor that is similar to a mix of chocolate and berries. Here is a look at what type of benefits you can get from Acai:

  • Has a high level of antioxidants (18,400 on the ORAC Assay)
  • Is a great source for essential fatty acids
  • Provides a boost of energy similar to coffee (without caffeine)
  • Fights cancer cells
  • Slows down aging
  • Contains high levels of fiber, amino acids, and Vitamins C, E, and B

Those are some pretty powerful benefits from a little berry, but are it enough to defeat the pomegranate?

And The Winner Is…

In a very close decision I have to give the win to the Acai berry. The determining factor is that Acai has a higher count of antioxidants (18,400 vs 10,500). Many of the benefits derived from these two fruits is based on their antioxidant power, so Acai takes that category hands down. The energy boost is very helpful for almost everyone, so that helps make it the more well-rounded superfood. The only edge pomegranates have is its ability to protect your cartilage and prevent arthritis.

Chlorella – Benefits of Nature’s finest Superfood

Chlorella is one of the most scientifically researched foods in history. However, it’s unlikely that you have heard of this superfood? It is not highly marketed by big businesses because the profit margins are low. However, chlorella is one of nature’s finest foods, providing you with a rich variety of amino acids (protein), enzymes, vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates. In fact, chlorella is thought to contain every nutrient required by the human body.

Here is a partial list of the ingredients found in Chlorella:

  • – High-quality complete protein
  • – All the known B vitamins
  • – Vitamin C
  • – Vitamin E
  • – Beta-carotene
  • – Macrominerals: including calcium, magnesium, zinc, potassium
  • – trace minerals
  • – Mucopolysaccharides
  • – Omega-3 fatty acids including GLA
  • – Nucleic Acids (RNA and DNA)
  • – Chlorophyll

Unfortunately, this superfood is filled with nutritional benefits that most doctors will never tell you about. However, don’t let that detract you from the many health benefits.

  • Relieves arthritis pain
  • Powerful blood cleanse
  • Liver cleanser
  • Anti-cancer agent
  • Strenghtens the immune system
  • Improves your digestive system and decreases constipation.
  • Allows you to focus more clearly and for a longer duration.
  • Helps eliminate bad breath.
  • Balances your body’s pH.
  • Helps remove the heavy metals and other pesticides that are continually invading your body.

One of chlorella’s greatest health benefits is in its ability to neutralize or remove poisonous substances from the body. A number of research projects in the U.S. and Europe have shown that chlorella can aid the body in the breakdown of hydrocarbon and metallic toxins such as DDT, PCB, mercury, cadmium and lead. This detoxification process takes 3-6 months to build up to the point where the body can begin eliminating the years of harmful substances in your body.

However the health benefits don’t stop there. One of chlorella’s main components is chlorophyll. In fact, chlorella contains more chlorophly per gram than any other plant. This chlorophyl is one of the greatest sources for cleansing the bowel and other elimination systems, such as the liver and the blood. Because of this high chlorphyll content, people find that chronic bad breath is often eliminated in just a few days on chlorella.

Chlorella also helps balance your body’s pH. Your body’s ideal pH is about 7.2 – 7.4. Unfortunately, America’s poor diet of junk food, fast food, overcooked, processed foods, and soft drinks have produced a generation of people who are severely imbalanced. The foods mentioned above are several thousand times more acidic than our bodies. This is a crucial point because most diseases begin their life and thrive in an acidic environment and do not live well in an alkaline environment.

Cancer is one of the many diseases that thrives in an acidic environment. Cancer rates have risen steadily and it is now to the point that fully one third of all people in the U.S. will get cancer in their lifetime! The rise in these numbers coincides with the rise of fast food, junk food, and processed foods. Eliminating these toxic foods with whole foods like chlorella will help to virtually eliminate your risk of developing cancer in the future.

How Much Chlorella Should You Take:

Many people take way too little chlorella to be effective. Remember, this is a food, not a drug. If you really want this superfood to be effective, you must take large quantities. It is recommended that you take at least 5 grams at each meal. Take your health to a new level with the many benefits of chlorealla.

Wheat Grass and Its Superfood Properties

Making Wheatgrass JuiceWheat grass is one of a large variety of grass which is grown in fields like barley, rye, and oats. It also refers to grass that is grown indoors in special trays for around 10 days from which, later on, their juice is squeezed and consumed fresh. Most of the dehydrated grass that is around 60 days old is mainly used as supplements or nutritional supplements. Such juice when mixed with some of the sprouted wheat berries is especially rich in chlorophyll content. This juice is known to cleanse the body and also to neutralize most of the toxins in our body along with slowing down the process of aging and at the same time is believed to help prevent cancer.

Wheat grass can certainly benefit a number of serious diseases as has been shown by a number of medical professionals. The herbal medicine is also known to have a good healing power just like aloe vera. The theory can be better understood as most of the cats and dogs can be seen nibbling on the grass especially when they feel sick or unwell. It is known to neutralize all the rotten food that forms toxins in our alimentary canal and the blood streams. Most of the enzymes that are found in the wheat grass have the power to detoxify most of the known toxins and additives found in our normally daily diet.

Chlorophyll is known as the life blood of all the green plants. Most of the medical professionals believe that wheat grass should not be cooked as cooking could kill most of the chlorophyll and so destroy its beneficial effects on our body. The most known fact is that most of the grass eating animals are generally spared from cancer as they eat chlorophyll in fresh form. Chlorophyll cannot detoxify the body itself but has certain enzymes present in it that do have the power to detoxify.

For a number of years most of the vegetable juices have been known to have a cleansing effect on our body. That is the prime reasons most of the doctors prescribe taking vegetable juices when we have a stomach ache or are not simply feeling well. Most of the vegetables have chlorophyll enzymes present in them. The wheat grass that is grown in the laboratory has more iron than spinach, more amounts of proteins than fish, eggs or even beans for the same weight. They have natural powers to heal the body system.

Wheat grass could be considered one of the superfoods and more and more people are discovering its health benefits. Try adding wheat grass to your daily diet and experience the benefits it has to give.

By: J P Peterson

Many people are aware of the health benefits from fruit and vegetable juices from those television adverts for the jack lalanne power juicer. However, a less well known juice, wheat grass juice, has been shown to have many health benefits and as such is becoming increasingly popular. This article explores why wheat grass is beneficial and why you should dig out your old power juicer and start juicing today.

Raw Honey – The Sweet Superfood!

Honey – The Cleansing Superfood

Cleansing Superfoods - Raw Organic HoneyHoney has been eaten for thousands of years. When some of the tombs were opened in Egypt, they found honey that had been put there for the entombed so they would have it in their next life. The honey had crystallized and was still perfectly good, even though it had been there for 5,000 years!

The majority of honey that you would buy in a supermarket is not the same honey that has been eaten for thousands of years. Only careful and minimal processing will preserve the many nutritive benefits of honey. Honey should never be heated during extraction or the enzymes will be destroyed, nor should it be fine filtered.

The fine filtering of honey removes much of what makes raw honey a healthy and desirable food. This would include particles of pollen, beeswax and propolis. When the pollen is still present in the honey it is said to provide relief to allergy sufferers. Small amounts of pollen act as an inoculant against large amounts in the air that trigger reactions like the runny nose and itchy eyes of hay fever. As honey is predigested it is very easy for the body to digest. When it is consumed with carbohydrates like porridge or toast, the enzymes in the honey help with the digestion of carbohydrates. Different honeys from different nectar sources are quite different. They have different combinations of sugars, minerals and enzymes. For example, very dark honeys have a high mineral content. Lighter honeys are lower in minerals and are usually milder in taste.

Another benefit to honey is that it is a good source of antioxidants so play a big role in the prevention of cancer as well as heart disease. It can also be used as a moisturiser to be later removed with splashes of water. Not only will it moisturise the skin but it will also help combat acne with only a small amount being needed for both uses. Bee keepers who regularly eat honey are said to live long and healthy lives.

Honey is a natural antiseptic. Medical journals cite more than 600 cases in which honey was employed to treat wounds by preventing infection. Honey contains an antimicrobial agent, which prevents infections by killing the bacteria in and around your wound. Many types of bacteria can't survive in honey so wounds heal, swelling eases and tissue can grow back.

Some interesting facts about bees are:

Honey bees are the only insect to produce food for humans, a healthy hive contains approximately 40-60 thousand bees. During the honey production period a bees life span is only 4-6 weeks.

Bees visit approximately two million flowers to make one pound of honey.

Bees travel an average of 1,600 round trips in order to produce on ounce of honey, each round trip being as far as 6 miles. To produce 2 pounds of honey bees travel a distance equal to 4 times round the earth!

Queens lay approximately 1,500 to 2,000 eggs per day at a rate of 5 to 6 per minute. One queen lays between 175,000 and 200,000 eggs per year.

So don't put their hard work to waste, go and get your self some raw honey and think about how much hard work has gone into that small amount you eat!

5 Superfoods For Better Health

A List of 5 Top Superfoods for your Health

The more I read and study, the more evidence I find that what you eat makes a huge difference in your overall health. Many foods promote disease while others prevent disease. The more nutrient rich food you eat, the better it is for your health.

Following is a list of 5 superfoods that are very good for your health.

1. Blueberries – Blueberries rank at the top of all fruits in terms of having the highest antioxidant capacity. They contain anthocyanins (more than red wine) which protect against cancer. They are a good source of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, manganese, selenium, and zinc. Blueberries, along with other fruits, can prevent or delay visual problems. They are high in fiber, low in calories, and contain anti-inflammatory compounds. Blueberries, like cranberries, help prevent urinary tract infections.

2. Broccoli – Broccoli, a member of the cabbage family, offers incredible health benefits. It is a very good source of carotenoids, calcium, folate, and Vitamins A, K, and C. A diet high in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, kale, and cabbage is shown to prevent several types of cancer. Broccoli is a low glycemic food, a good source of fiber, and has been found to be cardio-protective.

3. Nuts – Nuts contain heart-healthy fats and are high in fiber. They contain antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, and are a good source of calcium, magnesium, and potassium. Nuts can help reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers. Most nuts are high in arginine which can help reduce cholesterol levels and blood pressure. You should have several small servings per week to get the greatest benefits.Some choices: almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, walnuts, pistachio nuts

4. Quinoa – Quinoa is usually listed as a grain but is actually the seed of a plant related to spinach. It is lower in sodium content and higher in calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, iron, copper, manganese, and zinc than wheat, barley, or corn. Quinoa is a complete high quality protein (has all 8 essential amino acids). In fact, The World Health Organization rates the quality of the protein in quinoa to be at least equivalent to that in milk. It is gluten-free, low glycemic, and high in fiber. It can be used as a substitute for any grain.

5. Salmon– Salmon is an excellent source of omega 3, a fatty acid that helps reduce inflammation. It is high in protein, low in saturated fat, and low in calories. It is a good source of Vitamins D and B12, selenium, and magnesium. Salmon promotes cardiovascular health, can help control high blood pressure, and can lower your risk of several types of cancer. The cold water variety is best.

I hope you are already eating some or all of these superfoods. If you aren't including these foods in your diet, you might consider adding some or all of them.

Health Benefits of Oranges – A Natural Superfood

Oranges Superfoods IllustrationOften, we take the simple fruit many of us see daily, for granted. Oranges are available in grocery stores and markets, in almost every country in the world. They grow on the trees in the yards of many of my family and friends throughout the USA. Oranges also grow in Europe and in some Asian countries like China. Often ignored in favor of processed foods from our local grocery stores, oranges are a 100% natural superfood with many health and healing benefits.

What is so Super on Oranges?

First of all the Vitamin C,as weall know: Vitamin C is also known as ascorbic acid, the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C is 200-1000 mg. An orange contains almost 100 mg of this nutrient. Vitamin C is used in the treatment and prevention of most cancers because of its protection from free radicals. It also helps prevent and treat atherosclerosis, heart disease, infections, colds and flu, asthma attacks, lung inflammation, cataracts and glaucoma. How many of us reach for the Vitamin C when we are experiencing a cold?

Cancer fighter: Vitamin C is also a very powerful antioxidant and an important cancer fighter. When my dad was diagnosed with Stage IV liver and prostate cancer, we took matters out of the hands of traditional medicine. After testing for Vitamin deficiencies we started Vitamin C IV's for 2 weeks. The results in health were amazing. Besides the benefits of Vitamin C in oranges, the peel contains a flavonoid called hesperidin, which is a natural cancer fighter, with added benefits of lowering bad cholesterol and normalizing blood pressure.

Then there is Fiber: The recommended intake of fiber is 25 to 35 grams daily. The fleshy portion of an orange contains about 3.1 grams of fiber, making it a great source for your dietary requirements. Include the orange zest in your diet and the fiber increases to 6 grams per fruit. Combine this with other fruits and vegetables and you can easily provide the fiber you need daily. 2 medium oranges without utilizing the peel, 2 medium bananas and 2 medium apples daily will more than meet your fiber needs.

Oranges contain Natural Oils: The natural oil is in the skin of the oranges. This oil acts as a natural exfoliator and moisturizer for your skin. Combined with the Vitamin C benefits, oranges will keep your skin looking young and smooth.

It's Sweet,, Affordable and Nutrient Packed: The average unpeeled orange provides 3.1 grams of fiber, 1 gram of protein and approximately 69 calories of energy, 48 of which is from natural sugars. An orange contains about 60 mg of calcium, 15 mg of magnesium, and 232 mg of potassium. It is a great source of Vitamin C, folate, choline, Vitamin A and beta carotene. The orange is therefor definitely to be placed amongst the superfoods.

What to do with Orange Peel: Orange peels are useful for exfoliating scrubs, orange peel oil baths are beneficial to the skin, orange zest has cancer fighting properties and enhances many cooking and baking recipes, dried orange peel contains oil and works great as high octane kindling fuel to start any fire, fresh orange peel acts as a natural cat, slug and ant repellent when sprinkled around your garden, orange peel is a deodorizer, orange peel can help revitalize and soften hard brown sugar, fresh orange peel rubbed on your skin will repel mosquitoes, the oil from the peels works as a degreaser, orange peel is a natural aroma therapy for depression, and orange peel has been used by the Chinese for centuries to help lower high blood pressure. Beyond the benefits of the fleshy portion of the orange, you can see that the entire orange has many uses.

As you can see, oranges are a powerhouse all-natural superfood to be included in your diet. The orange is definitely an amazing food. If you are one of the fortunate to have your own trees producing oranges, don't let this valuable fruit go to waste. If you have somewhere too many oranges, provide the excess to the homeless and to food banks.

Men’s Health Issues

Dealing with Health Issues is not our Strongest Point

Prostate Cancer with Gleason Pattern

Picture by: Nephron

Too often, as we age, we tend to become quite leery of visiting our physicians for regular checkups. Regrettably, though, we cannot always rely on the standard, “I feel fine – why see the doc?” Diseases, conditions, and chronic illnesses can wreak havoc for the health and even the life if they don’t manage to be detected and treated early on. Any health related journal or leaflet will tell you, after a specific age, women need to have annual mammograms, pap smears, and also the like, and men must have annual check-ups, as well. Particularly, the prostate have to be kept healthy, and yet too many men are reluctant to face this very real health issue.

It is quite unfortunate that this will prevent a lot of males in today’s society from addressing such an important health issue, however it is certainly true. How many women ought to prod their husbands to the point of exasperation to get them to visit a doctor for an illness, let alone a routine physical? The macho bravado a lot of display is really a sense of fear that something may truly be wrong with them, what if the doctor finds something wrong? What if there are more tests to be conducted to rule out the potential for that dreaded word: cancer? No one, to be honest, wants to find that they’re encountering an illness, nevertheless it is actually better to know than to be kept in the dark. This health issue is of such dire importance that men simply cannot ignore it, and yet they do.

Prostate cancer impacts millions of men the world over, and so many of these cases would have been prevented had the men heeded the recommendation of medical professionals. Why do men appear to ignore the necessity for this exam? Likely, it has to do with the private nature on the exam itself, many men simply have an exceptionally real embarrassment about having their genital areas probed and prodded in a doctor’s office. Whether the doctor is male or female may play a role, as some men are naturally uncomfortable having another man, albeit a doctor, a professional, examine these most private of areas, while others are genuinely skittish about having a female doctor do the same.

All in all, a health issue that can be taken care of quite easily with an annual, routine check-up is one which continues to be ignored by many males. Nobody can stress the need for preventative medicine enough to make men understand of the fact that embarrassment, the fear, the overall feeling of being uncomfortable, are all quite natural, but they must be overcome. To prevent or at least detect prostate cancer early is nowhere near as loathsome as having to go through surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation. Men, take control of your health, and don’t let this health issue be one that you just overlook.
