That Good Stuff
What you put into your body literally becomes a part of you! Here are some beneficial “medicinal foods” to help your body fight inflammation and rid itself of free radicals that can otherwise cause some serious cell damage.
Lemons • • •
Help to improve digestion, stimulate your liver and lymphatic system. A little Vitamin C goes a long way and will help your skin to keep a smooth and youthful glow. Drinking a large glass of warm lemon water first thing when you wake up in the morning can greatly improve your energy level, boost your immune system, and greatly improve your overall health.
Ginger Root • • •
Works wonders to reduce inflammation, helps with digestion, reduces joint and muscle pain, aids in nutrient absorption, decreases nausea, helps to alleviate menstrual cramps, clears sinus flare-ups, fights physical and mental degeneration, and is an incredible immune system booster.
Turmeric • • •
This is such an insanely curative medicinal root that I could easily write an entire essay on all of the research studies that have been conducted it’s disease fighting properties. It is a super anti-inflammatory food, and an amazing immune system booster. Research has shown that this root is a great anti-oxidant, anti-fungal, and an all around powerful disease fighting super food.
Cinnamon • • •
Another incredible digestive aid, that can also help to lower your blood sugar, combat candida, rid your body of cell damaging free radicals, fight viruses, give your immune system a boost, and so much more.
Maple • • •
This sweet syrup is full of vitamins and minerals that help to make the “medicine” go down! A little of this sticky stuff goes a long way so you don’t have to overdue it, consuming too much sugar no matter how natural it’s form is never very helpful to your health status.
This is just a little list to help you understand some of the key benefits of these tasty power foods, but there is so much more to discover!
