An apple a day keeps the Doctor away
Everyone knows that apples are good for you—it’s even earned the reputation. “An Apple a day keeps the doctor away.” And now, scientists are just beginning to find out why. Plenty of vitamins and minerals, as well as phytonutrients, or plant compounds, are packed into one baseball-sized piece of fruit.
Considerable research has been already done and is currently being conducted on the role of phytonutrients that act as antioxidants, which are found in many fruits, red wine and tea. Antioxidants counteract chemicals in the blood that oxidize, or damage, certain molecules.
Flavonoids are the most common group of phytonutrients in foods. Apples are particularly high in one of the Flavonoids called quercetin, which has high antioxidant activity.
Researches on the Heath Benefits of Apples
The ideal “good fat” ratio for optimal health
often mistakenly classified as nuts, and most people believe that cashew are like nuts. For people with allergy issues, the distinction between nuts and seeds can be very important, as some people who are allergic to nuts are not allergic to cashews. Cashews work as great health boosters and a good source of mono-unsaturated fats and proteins.
Moreover, cashews are loaded with vitamins and minerals. Although Cashew do have a fairly high fat content, they are considered to have what scientists call the ideal “good fat” ratio for optimal health (which is a 1:2:1 ratio of saturated, mono-unsaturated, and polyunsaturated fat). These high levels of mono-unsaturated fatty acids also support healthy levels of low “good (HDL) cholesterol,” and they don’t contain any cholesterol.
The cashew nut, a popular treat found on grocery and health food store shelves across the world, is jam-packed with nutritional content. It packs 5 grams of protein per ounce and high levels of the essential minerals iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper and manganese, which are utilized in holistic health solutions and healthy diets.
Nature’s healthiest sweetener
All sweeteners are not a like; Maple syrup is by far the healthiest sweetener providing the most nutritional benefits with more than 54 known compounds that are proven to provide health benefits to the human body.
New research conducted by the University of Rhode Island established that maple syrup is extremely rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds which may contribute to the prevention of several diseases including: heart disease, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, and neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer’s.
Scores a low 35 on the glycemic index scale
Coconut palm sugar is made from the coconut tree nectar. Coconut palm sugar has essential nutrients and minerals including potassium, magnesium, zinc, iron, phosphorus, nitrogen and vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and C that are associated with the prevention and healing of the human body. Magnesium and zinc are essential for the proper nerve and brain function of the body.
Phosphorus is essential for kidney function and supports healthy cells, while Iron & Zinc are essential for a strong immune system that supports the body’s white blood cells population and protection against colds & viruses. In addition, Coconut palm sugar scores a low 35 on the glycemic index scale.
Vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants, and Omega-3
It is believed that flaxseed was cultivated in the early Babylonian time dating back to 3000 BC. Some have called flaxseed the most nutritious plant food in the world because of all of its nutritive value being packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants, and Omega-3 fatty acids. Recent studies have shown that flaxseed may reduce the risk of cancer, diabetes, stroke, and heart disease. In these studies, flaxseed also prevented tumor incidence and growth on laboratory animals. In addition, it has low carbohydrates and its high fiber/healthy fat ratio that make it ideal for weight management.
One of the most important nutritional aspects of Flaxseed is that it is extremely rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids. These fatty acids are a vital defense against inflammation in the human body. Studies have shown that inflammation causes many debilitating and terminal diseases such as heart disease, arthritis, asthma, diabetes, and cancer. Inflammation is also exacerbated in the body by having too little Omega-3 in relation to Omega-6 fatty acids; flaxseed will definitely help the Omega 3/6 balance by equalizing these two ratios. Flaxseed is also loaded with essential vitamins and minerals including vitamins B, magnesium, and manganese. It is also high in fiber which is responsible for lowering cholesterol effects and stabilizing blood sugar & intestines function. Finally, Flaxseed is also loaded with many antioxidants which may also contribute to protection against cancer and heart disease.
It essential not to expose Flaxseed to a large amount of heat in order for it to maintain their essential nutritional value intact; therefore, w our Pure Food desserts and Pure Cinnamon Rolls are only dehydrated at below temperature of 115-degree Fahrenheit. In addition, flaxseed must not be exposed to continuous light, therefore our packages are a deliberate dark brown color in order to maintain our Pure Food desserts and Pure Cinnamon Rolls essential nutritional value intact.
Attributed to many health benefits
At one time in our history, Cinnamon was more expensive than gold. Today, there are many health benefits attributed to cinnamon. For example, Cinnamon can lower bad cholesterol (or LDL), it can stabilize blood sugar (which is beneficial for weight managements), some studies shown that cassia cinnamons have blood sugar regulating ability which may also help treat Type 2 Diabetes by lowering blood sugar levels and increasing the amount of insulin production in the body. Cinnamon also has anti-fungal properties and may reduce the proliferation of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells. When added to food, cinnamon acts as natural preservative inhibiting bacterial growth and food spoilage. Cinnamon has been found to be an effective natural remedy for eliminating headaches and migraine relief and just smelling it can boost cognitive function and memory.
Saigon cinnamon, or cinnamomum loureiroi, is the most prized member of the Cassia family of cinnamons. It has a full complex flavor with more sweetness and is generally more expensive than the regular Ceylon cinnamon, which is the “supermarket” cinnamon. Saigon cinnamon comes from the Cinnamomum loureiroi or the Cinnamomum aromaticum trees and is generally a product of Vietnam. The Cassia trees are related Ceylon cinnamon, Cinnamon zeylanicum and Cinnamomum verum. Cassia cinnamons (including Saigon) are derived from both the inner and outer bark of the tree, while Ceylon cinnamon comes only from the thin inner.
