These are common things I hear myself say to patients to protect and preserve their body.
Eyesight: Eat Mangoes & Kiwi. Mangoes are loaded with beta-carotene and vitamins C and E, three antioxidants that protect your eyes from vision-altering free-radical damage. Avoid age-related macular degeneration by taking lots of antioxidants. Kiwi has lots of potassium.
Prevent Colon Cancer: Eat Brazil nuts. They’re the top food source of selenium, a mineral that one study showed may reduce the risk of colon cancer by as much as 60 percent. Target amount is 200 micrograms of selenium.
Prevent Ulcers: Eat lots of broccoli. In a study sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences, sulforaphane—a phytochemical in the sprouts—killed off any H. pylori. Broccoli sprouts are best.
Avoid Strokes: Vitamin C — minimizes artery damage from free radicals, reduces blood pressure, and helps control cholesterol.
Prevent Prostate problems: Eat Blueberries they are at the top of the fruit list with the most antioxidants. Plums have phytochemicals that inhibit prostate-tumor cell growth in the laboratory by 80 percent—20 percent more than blueberries do.
Heart Attack: Black or Green tea – drinking one or more cups of black tea daily was associated with a 45 percent decrease in heart attacks. The flavonoids in the tea may reduce the buildup of fatty deposits in the arteries.
Losing Weight: Two scoops of UltraMeal powder mixed with water or juice as a breakfast shake has been the best product I’ve seen to help my clients lose weight. Each shake 15 grams of protein, which helps suppress appetite and may boost the activity of leptin, a hormone that plays a key role in calorie burning.
