05/25/2017 // Tim Wesley // Views

Protect your body from the inside by eating healthy. The good news is you don't have to search far and wide or spend hundreds of dollars to acquire foods that curb illness; just look around your kitchen. Below are seven disease-fighting foods you can find at home.

  • Garlic and onions - Forget the not-so-pleasant smell and pay attention to the immense benefits of onions and garlic. Both contain bioflavonoids and allyl sulfides that may minimize the risks for cancer and heart diseases. Various studies have proven that these may have significant impact on lowering the risk of prostate cancer, minimizing the development rate of pre-cancerous tumors in the large intestines, detoxifying blood cells, fortifying blood cells' ability to resist DNA damage, reducing calcium deposits and arterial plaque in coronary arteries, and preventing unhealthy blood clotting.

  • Beans - Beans are a nutrition powerhouse. These legumes are rich in antioxidants, protein, fiber, complex carbs, copper, folate, manganese, magnesium, iron, phosphorous, zinc, potassium and other beneficial nutrients. They can assist in reducing and/or maintaining weight, keeping the heart healthy, aiding digestion, and balancing blood sugar levels.

  • Cinnamon - Cinnamon contain antioxidants that remove free radicals from the body, which means you're less likely to develop chronic diseases as well as suffer from premature aging. Its anti-inflammatory properties can ward off autoimmune diseases and regulate blood sugar levels, which reduces the risk of diabetes. Remember, however, to take only small amounts of the usual cinnamon (cassia) you have in your house. Adding too much may have a negative effect on your health, unless you're ingesting ceylon cinnamon, or what they consider the “true cinnamon”.

  • Ginger - Ginger is one of the simplest, most effective antidotes you can use. Its healing properties are hard to dispute; it's been providing relief to people since the ancient times. As a matter of fact, ginger has been used as a cure for diarrhea and inflammation in China for more than 2,000 years. This flexible rhizome is packed with protein, carbs, dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals, and does more than curing morning sickness. It aids in strengthening the immune system, improving bone health, aiding digestion, treating nausea, alleviating pain, increasing appetite, reducing excess gas, and preventing several types of cancers.

  • Mint - More than a breath freshener, mint can also provide relief from asthma, headaches, fatigue, and nausea. It's also effective in soothing discomfort caused by indigestion and inflammation as well as maintaining clear, pimple-free skin. Mint can also help improve mental alertness and cognitive function.

  • Citrus fruits - Citrus fruits do more than boost the immune system. A good source of fiber, they help regulate glucose levels and lower cholesterol. One study showed that bypass surgery patients were able to lower LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels by consuming red grapefruit. Citrus fruits are rich in potassium, which aid in fluid regulation, muscle contraction, and mineral balance. Adding these delicious superfoods to your diet will help your body absorb nutrients better, maintain clear, supple skin, and regulate weight.

  • Turmeric - The curcumin found in turmeric may have a significant effect in preventing Alzheimer's disease and soothing pain caused by arthritis. Its anti-inflammatory properties are also linked to cancer prevention and treating uveitis (inflammation of the iris). Other health benefits include lower cholesterol levels, better immune system, and improved cognitive function.

If you want to avoid poor health, you need to make smarter nutritional decisions. Disease prevention can be as simple as being more mindful of the food you eat. Learn more about the healing power of fresh foods at Fresh.news.
