CRANBERRY - A MAGNIFICENT

We eat them fresh and dried, in the form of sauce, jam, jam, syrup and drink like juice, tea or tincture. They originally originated in North America, and were first used by Indians, the first inhabitants of the American continent, for the purpose of treating kidney and urinary tract diseases, healing wounds, and treating and alleviating digestive disorders.

 Research has shown that daily consumption of cranberry juice of 300 ml can reduce the possibility of developing urinary tract infections by 80%. And while we usually consume them in the form of sokes that are produced for commercial purposes, it does not have a positive effect on our immune system, because it is caused by the addition of large amounts of sugar. Apart from juicing without sugar in the treatment and prevention of urinary tract inflammation, this berries are recommended to be consumed in the form of capsules, tablets

Cardiovascular system


They also positively affect the health of the cardiovascular system. They are also effective in lowering the total cholesterol level and preventing the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, which is thought to cause atherosclerosis and heart disease. Likewise, their consumption works to increase HDL cholesterol levels, reduce blood clotting and reduce blood pressure, which is attributed to a high proportion of bioflavonoid and polyphenol antioxidants.

Anticancerogenic action


Most studies in this area include laboratory studies in animals that have shown a cessation of cancer cell growth and metastasis. They can play an important role in preventing the appearance of various forms of cancer, such as breast, colon, lung, prostate cancer due to their anti-oxidant properties.

One portion provides a minimum of 10 percent of the recommended daily amount of vitamin C that protects DNA cells and prevents the formation of carcinogens. They also reduce inflammation and, consequently, the ability of cancer to attack other tissues.

The 5 Best Herbs to Soothe Your Nerves

The 5 Best Herbs to Soothe Your Nerves

Forget frazzled nerves, anxiety, restlessness, nerve-related headaches and pain. Herbs really shine when it comes to soothing nerves. Here are five of my picks for the best nerve-soothing herbs-


Feverfew for Migraines and Headaches


This delicate flowering plant contains potent medicine, especially when it comes to soothing the nervous system. Perhaps that is why it has been in use for over two thousand years, when Greek Dioscorides physician recommended feverfew for inflammation. Since then we've learned a lot about feverfew's many other healing properties and its effects on the nervous system.
Feverfew is an excellent headache and migraine remedy. If you've taken it when you've had a migraine and found that it did not work for you, rest assured that it will work when properly used. Feverfew does not work in the same way as headache and migraine drugs at the first sign of pain. Rather, the best way to take feverfew is over the course of a month to prevent headaches and migraines the following month. Research published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews concluded that feverfew can reduce the prevalence of migraines.


Feverfew for Neuropathy


If you are suffering from neuropathy pain, which is a general term to describe disorders of the nervous system that cause pain, weakness and numbness, you will be happy to learn that feverfew has been found effective for this set of conditions. In a study published in the journal Phytomedicine, researchers found that feverfew was as effective as the drug-gapapentin (an anti-epileptic drug used in the treatment of neuropathic pain). Steep one teaspoon of dried herbs (leaves, flowers, and stems) in a cup of boiled water for 10 minutes. Drink three cups daily.


Nettles to Block Pain Signals


Nettles, or stinging nettles, as the plant is also called due to its fine hair that impart a stinging sensation, have been found to interfere with pain signals transmitted through the nervous system, thereby reducing seemingly unrelated types of pain. In a study of nettles on osteoarthritis pain, researchers found that nettles reduced pain linked to the disease. Study participants also found that they needed less anti-inflammatory drug drugs while taking nettles. Of course, you should consult your physician before reducing prescriptions. Dried nettles can be made into tea or added to soups and stews.

Sage to Ease Stress and Balance Moods


While sage is increasingly known for its brain health and memory-boosting effects, this potent herb also plays a critical role in balancing moods. It seems to work by inhibiting an enzyme that breaks down the essential brain hormone known as acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is needed for mood regulation as well as many other brain and bodily functions. Drinking a few cups of sage tea on a daily basis may be just what you need to soothe your nerves and ease stress. Avoid using sage if you suffer from migraines.

St. John's Wort to Alleviate Anxiety


While there are many excellent studies that prove the effectiveness of St. John's Wort against depression, few people realize that this beautiful flowering herb can be used as a natural anti-anxiety medicine. Research published in the journal Phytotherapy Research found that the herb was effective in the treatment of anxiety. Use one teaspoon of dried flowers from this plant to be steeped in a cup of boiled water and drink three times daily to take advantage of St. John's Wort's anti-anxiety effects. Alternatively, take a tincture and follow the package directions.

Valerian for Restlessness, Hyperactivity and Anxiety


Valerian root has long been used for its anti-anxiety effects. Newer research shows that its potent anti-anxiety effects may be attributed at least partially to the compound valerenic acid. Other research shows that this powerful natural medicine taken in combination with lemon balm was helpful for reducing restlessness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness in elementary school children after seven weeks of treatment with the herbs. Valerian is best taken in tincture format. Follow package instructions. For children use an alcohol-free extract known as glycerite.

Coconut Oil for Athletes

Coconut Oil for Athletes

1. Quick Energy


Coconut oil is one of the top sources of fuel for active individuals. Due to its limited processing, organic virgin coconut oil contains nearly 50% Medium-Chain Fatty-Acids (MCFA's), which are directly absorbed in the bloodstream and converted by the liver into energy, allowing the body to use the fat immediately for fuel, rather than storing it in the tissues. It therefore provides quick and sustained energy - perfect for athletes. Try incorporating coconut oil into your pre-workout snack, either directly from the jar, or into your smoothies or energy bars.

2. Metabolism


In addition, MCFA's are easily digested, thus putting less strain on the digestive system and leaving you with more energy. The medium-chain fatty acids in coconut oil also help balance the release of insulin in the body, contributing to balance blood sugar for long lasting energy, which is great for high-intensity and endurance workouts. Stabilizing glucose levels will prevent sudden insulin decrease and promote longer energy levels for longer. When used regularly, coconut oil can train the body to use fat as a source of energy rather than typical carbohydrates.

3. Nutrient absorption


The dietary saturated fats found in coconut oil are essential for the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins and minerals including calcium, magnesium, some B vitamins, amino acids and vitamins A, E, K and D. These are all important nutrients involved in muscle recovery and electrolyte balance, allowing your body to recover more efficiently.


4. Balance hormones


Hormones affect various different processes in the body including growth, metabolism, sleep quality, mood and sexual functions. The body uses fats to produce and regulate hormones. The saturated fats contained in coconut oil can promote optimal hormone production by allowing the body to convert cholesterol into pregnenolone, a building block used to produce hormones. Balanced hormones can significantly improve energy levels and metabolism, which are essential when performing physical activity.

5. Reduces inflammation


Coconut oil is considered a natural remedy to reduce inflammation in the body. It can be used to alleviate discomfort from inflammatory foods in the system or simply to treat local swelling or pain in the joints or tissue. This is due to the powerful anti-oxidant contained in lauric acid. Consuming coconut oil daily, as well as applying it to the affected joint or muscle can contribute to reducing inflammation and alleviating pain. For better results, warm up the oil and gently massage into the inflamed joint of the muscle.
