Food For Thought

Did you know that there are foods you eat daily that are beneficial for improving digestion, preventing cardiovascular disease, enhancing weight-loss and supporting urinary function? Foods such as garlic, parsley and cranberries provide your body with key nutrients that are essential for optimum health.

Garlic is considered nature's very own antibiotic. Unlike most antibiotics, garlic will not deplete the body of flora, and is considered to be the cure-all herb because of its effectiveness on the entire body. Rich in potassium, zinc, selenium, vitamin A and Vitamin C, garlic is commonly used to improve digestion, fight infection, increase circulation and help prevent cardiovascular disease.

Parsley is a rich source of calcium, iron, riboflavin, potassium, thiamine, vitamin A, Vitamin C and trace amounts of niacin. Parsley is commonly known for being a great digestive aid and breath freshener. It has a high content of odor-absorbing and oxygenating chlorophyll. In fact, parsley is commonly used in herbal combination formulas for weight loss, and supplements that support the kidneys, liver, thyroid and other glandular systems.

Cranberries have been used for hundreds of years to promote urinary tract health, because they contain substances which alter the bacteria population in urine. The substances found in the juice of cranberries seems to make harmful bacteria less likely to cling to the surface of cells in the urinary tract.
