“Adding more to the health benefits of garlic list, garlic’s role in the prevention of cancer is perhaps one of the most notorious. Scientists believe that the exceptional anti-cancer properties may have to do with the way that garlic boosts the production of something known as hydrogen sulfide. It is the hydrogen sulfide production that researchers believe to be why garlic is so effective at preventing a wide variety of cancer including, prostate, breast, and colon cancer.”

From Cancer.gov’s National Cancer Intitute FactSheet:

“Several population studies show an association between increased intake of garlic and reduced risk of certain cancers, including cancers of the stomach, colon, esophagus, pancreas, and breast.”

“The health benefits of lemons are due to its many nourishing elements like vitamin C, vitamin B, phosphorous, proteins, and carbohydrates. Lemon is a fruit that contains flavonoids, which are composites that contain antioxidant and cancer fighting properties. It helps to prevent diabetes, constipation, high blood pressure, fever, indigestion and many other problems, as well as improving the skin, hair, and teeth. Studies conducted at the American Urological Association highlight the fact that lemonade or lemon juice can eliminate the occurrence of kidney stones by forming urinary citrate, which prevents the formation of crystals.”

 

“The fatty acids in hemp oil offer certain health benefits. For example, the oil contains sitosterol, which can help lower cholesterol. It also contains tocopherols, which have antioxidant properties to help prevent your cells from damage, and anticancer agents, according to the “Journal of Nutraceuticals, Functional and Medicinal Foods.” Hemp oil also contains a 3-to-1 ratio of omega-3 fatty acids to omega-6 fatty acids, which can help lower your risk of cancer, inflammation and blood clots, the “Journal of Nutraceuticals, Functional and Medicinal Foods” reports. Fatty acids also promote normal brain function.

Try to avoid processed and unnatural sugars in your diet. Diets low in sodium and saturated fats and armored with  monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, omega-3 fatty acids, and balanced with whole grains, lean protein, and plenty of fruits and vegetables are the best.

Try to eat natural sugar and get your vitamins the old fashioned way through your food and drinks. Dietary supplements and minerals are sometimes needed to get 100% of your daily recommended value of fortifying antioxidants and vitamins.

 

Try to protect yourself against free radical damage and early cognitive decline. We all have the ability to take control of our lives and treat our bodies with respect while still indulging in satisfyingly tasty foods! Instead of whole milk, have some smooth almond milk in low-or-no sugar fortified cereal or granola. Cut up some apples, strawberries, or bananas and throw them in there!Light and healthy snacks like this are easier to prepare than greasy, health compromising foods.

Did you know that 2-3 cups of black (no added sugars or creams) coffee a day reduces your chances of getting dimentia by 75%?

 

2-3 cups of tea (green, black, whatever) (green tea offers the most benefits though) a day is a healthy addition to a healthy and balanced lifestyle

 

Always try and set aside 30 minutes out of your day to exercise and get your blood pumping!

 

 

Always try and keep high sugar content out of your diet. Sugar just packs on pounds and has NO benefits towards your health or body AT ALL.

 

Remember, fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, lean protein, water, herbal teas, coffee, and whole grains are all part of a healthy and balanced diet.

 

Remember: you can change the way you eat and STILL eat things that you love. Easy, fresh, and healthy snack alternatives are everywhere! Just look up some recipes or browse on here to find some, I’ll be sure to give plenty of links and references. There are lots of Instagram pages that are dedicated to posting photos and videos about a healthy lifestyle. I’ll be sure to post some of those too.

 

Do NOT sit the majority of your day! Stand up and get moving, staying idle for long periods of time, doing nothing, is bad for your body!
