Sandi Cornez's curator insight, July 5, 3:44 PM

All produce (organic preferable) are superfoods. However some pack more of a nutritional punch than others in regard to fighting disease.

 

Here's 10 Superfoods that pack the healthiest punch according to this new study.

 

If you're eating 10 or more veggies and some fruits every day (organic preferable), then you are giving your body the nutrients it needs to keep you healthy as long as you are moving throughout the day and avoiding processed foods/sugar.Drinking water (filtered, not tap or bottled), managing stress, and being in a space of gratitude are key as well.

Broccoli - an anti-air pollution food ("flush out pollution substances through urine")

Broccoli - an anti-air pollution food ("flush out pollution substances through urine") | Vegetarian and Vegan | Scoop.it

A new study published in Cancer Prevention Research found that broccoli compounds help us flush out benzene through our urine. A known carcinogen, benzene can be found anywhere from paint thinner to car exhaust.

When research subjects drank tea made of boiled broccoli sprouts for 12 weeks, their excretion rate of the chemical shot up by 61 percent. The beverage also upped the level of acrolein—a pollutant inhaled from sources such as tobacco smoke and power-plant emissions—by 23 percent in the participants’ urine.

“This study points to a frugal, simple, and safe means that can be taken by individuals to possibly reduce some of the long-term health risks associated with air pollution,” said lead researcher and Johns Hopkins University professor Thomas Kensler in a statement.

Sprouts pack higher levels of the chemical-fighting stuff, but regular broccoli has it too—just a lot less. The more bitter the broccoli, the better—though you’d still have to eat about 1.5 cups of the vegetable each day to get the same benefits as the study’s subjects did, Kensler told The Wall Street Journal.

But like any other superfood, broccoli sprouts are by no means a magic shield against health hazards such as China’s toxic smog.

“Air pollution is a complex and pervasive public health problem,” Kensler said. “Government leaders and policy makers [need to] define and implement more effective regulatory policies to improve air quality.”

Did you know that 70-80%  of your immune system resides in your gut, your G.I. Tract. Humans wouldn't be alive without the good bacteria that resides in our body. We have a symbiotic relationship.

 

Probiotic foods which are known as fermented foods (they are cultured a certain way) and probiotic supplements are needed to assist the good bacteria to do their work in your body. 

 

Here's 5 probiotic foods that you may want to try. Your bacteria will thank you for it. 

 

Just know that most commercial bought yogurts are loaded with sugar which negates any benefits. You can easily make your own nut yogurts or dairy yogurts. Recipes abound on the internet. Kefir is another fermented food, not mentioned in the article. There are water-kefirs and dairy kefirs.

Integrieren Sie fermentierte Lebensmittel in Ihren Speiseplan!

Fermentiere Lebensmittel haben eine jahrtausendalte Tradition und galten schon immer als gesund. Sie sind gut verdaulich und steigern die Bioverfügbarkeit von Nahrungsmittelbestandteilen. Sie halten sich länger und entwickeln ihren ureigenen Geschmack. Sauerkraut, Sauerteig, Joghurt, gereifter Käse, Wein, Bier, die Würzpaste Miso, Tempeh, Essig, Tee -  überall sind Bakterien aktiv!

In Bioläden und Hofläden finden Sie auch Milchprodukte, die aus Vorzugsmilch hergestellt wurden.  Je natürlicher desto besser!

10 Foods That Protect Your Vision ("eye health by eating the appropriate food")

10 Foods That Protect Your Vision ("eye health by eating the appropriate food") | Vegetarian and Vegan | Scoop.it
Looking at the connection between eye health and diet, AARP explores how antioxidants and nutrients—including omega-3 fatty acids

With summer almost officially here, perhaps you’ve already planted edible flowers in your garden or begun eating healthy berries by the handful or added a pitcher of antioxidant-rich green tea to the fridge.

But as you slide on your sunglasses to block out the afternoon sun, have you considered your eye health?

If not, you are probably not alone. There is good news, however. A recent study in the journalThe Archives of Ophthalmology has found that fewer older Americans are developing macular degeneration, which is a major cause of vision loss in older people. Importantly, the study suggests that a healthy diet could be one factor responsible for the decrease in the occurrence of this vision disorder.

Looking at the connection between eye health and diet, AARP explores how antioxidants and nutrients—including omega-3 fatty acids, lutein and vitamins C and E—play a role in defending against macular degeneration as well as glaucoma and cataracts.

Here is AARP’s list of foods that could be beneficial to eye health:
