Health benefits of using Apple Cider Vinegar


Live Superfoods - The Raw Superfoods Superstore

Hello Again Best of Health followers:

I was looking at a post in regards to pesticides and Herbicides that are on most non organic produce these days. It is scary to think how much of this we are probably consuming on a day to daily basis. These poisons going into our systems and doing all sorts of damage to our bodies. And we wonder why people are getting sicker and sicker these days, with so many allergies to foods.

Well one way of cleaning of the chemicals from your fruits and veggies is to actually soak them and wash them in Apple Cider Vinegar and water for 10 to 20 minutes. This will help remove the chemicals from the fruit and veggies.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar

This takes a little time and effort, but well worth it for your health. It is good for any foods that you plan on eating the skin of, such as spinach, apples, Kale, Lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, Pears etc. I use about 1 Tbsp of Apple Cider Vinegar in enough water to fill  a good sized bowl or tub.

Scrub with Apple Cider Vinegar

Scrub with Apple Cider Vinegar

Let the fruit or Veggies sit in the water/ACV for 10 to 20 minutes and also give them a good scrub with a dedicated scrubbing brush. Do not use this brush for anything else.

Then rinse off under water after this. I rinse under my filtered water outlet so as not to add other contaminants such as Chlorine, Fluoride, heavy metals from normal tap water.

Always use the Raw Organic ACV that still has the “Mother” of the vinegar. The “Mother” is made up of the strand like enzymes of connected protein molecules with living nutrients and bacteria. 

Other Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar are:

  • There are studies that have shown ACV to be able to kill cancer cells or slow their growth.
  • It can help regulate blood pressure and reduce bad cholesterol
  • Rich in potassium. Potassium is a key factor for growth, building muscles, transmission of nerve impulses & Heart activity.
  • May help improve bowel irregularity and helps remove toxins from the body at a faster rate.
  • It can also help clear up skin conditions.

The usual preparation for drinking the ACV is 1 to 2 Tablespoons in a glass of water per day, in the morning. This will also help with Digestion.

Coconut Oil Cures Candida


Raw Organic Coconut - Live Superfoods

Re-Post thanks to Eating Raw-Vegan Foods in College:

Candida is yeast-like fungus that is present in the mouth, intestines, esophagus, throat and genital tract. Under normal circumstances, it inhabits these areas and lives in balance with other bacteria and yeast in the body. However, certain conditions (for example a weakened immune system) can cause it to multiply and cause an infection which travels through the bloodstream to other areas of the body. Raw cold pressed coconut oil contains the high content of Lauric and Caprylic Acids that can fight candida naturally use the coconut oil externally and as dietary supplement internally.

Fungal nail infection causes thickening and discoloration of the nail.

Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection of the foot and it is caused by a fungal infection that thrives in an area of warmth and dampness. Athlete’s Foot leaves sufferers with symptoms of burning, itching, inflammation, blisters, cracking and scaling. You should treat athlete’s foot at the same time as fungal nail infection. This helps prevent the athlete’s foot infection spreading into the nails and causing another infection after the fungal nail treatment has been completed.

Use the top quality organic virgin coconut oil as topical antifungal cream which can help you after several applications to kill the microorganisms responsible and get rid of the fungi infections.

Blueberries can prove to be of help to cancer sufferers, because they contain certain compounds like, Pterostilbene ( excellent remedy for colon and liver cancer) and Ellagic Acid, in harmony with Anthocyanin and other anti-oxidants like vitamin C and copper, can do miracles to prevent and cure cancer. Check out a study presented in the Journal of Agricultural and food chemistry that shows that phenolic compounds in blueberries can inhibit colon cancer cell proliferation and induce apoptosis (programmed cell death). A significant 34% reduction in ovarian cancer risk was also seen in women with the highest intake of the flavone luteolin (found in citrus).

So go out and get yourself some Blueberries and get into them. Put them in a smoothie they taste great.

Pineapple & Watermelon morning juice

Good morning again from Eat Well Look Fantastic

Another amazing start to my day, my 1 litre of water with fresh lemon juice first up to get me going. Great for the liver. Then took my dog for a 40 minute walk around the neighborhood, followed by making my morning juice. Today I mixed it up abit again, love to try different combo’s. Here is what I juiced:

  • 1 full pineapple
  • 1/4 of a watermelon
  • 1 green apple
  • 1 red apple
  • 1 carrot
  • hand full of baby organic spinach
  • slight drizzle of hemp seed oil into juicer

Yes you are seeing correctly, hemp seed oil. I only used a small amount drizzled into the juicer as I juiced. Might have only been about 5 ml. Didn’t want to overpower the flavours, as it can. Drinking the juice, you can just taste the hemp seed oil, not too strong. And yes, the juice combo worked and tasted great. Some of the benefits of Hemp Seed oil are:

Hundreds March Against Monsanto

Amazing to see the turnout of people around the world. Hear the people’s voice. Stop this poisoning of our foods and planet.

WCCO | CBS Minnesota

[worldnow id=8920299 width=450 height=275 type=video]

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – What’s really in your food? That’s the question thousands across the country – and in St. Paul – asked as they rallied against the agriculture company Monsanto on Saturday.

Hundreds gathered at the State Capitol for the “March Against Monsanto” Saturday afternoon. Similar scenes took place at more than 200 cities across the country.

The protesters want people to know more about genetically modified foods (GMOs), which Monsanto, an agriculture and seed company, produces.

Those crops, such as corn and soybean, are engineered to resist insecticides and add nutritional benefits to increase the global food supply.

But protesters say GMOs aren’t always safe.

The FDA has said there’s no difference between GMO and organically-grown foods.

Monsanto argues mandatory labeling of food as GMOs would be confusing.

March Against Monsanto in San Francisco

Thought I would reblog this post. Amazing to see the turnout around the world. People power.

One never knows what the day will bring when going in to San Francisco. We were in to meet friends for lunch yesterday. A stroll up Market Street afterwards, made us quickly aware that something was brewing.

IMG_5645

At this point we began to hear the crowd of protesters marching up the street, and it was then we found out about the march against Monsanto, the largest manufacturer of genetically modified organisms (GMO). The DNA of a GMO is mixed with that of other plants, animals, bacteria or viruses. These combinations do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding. The companies that make GMO foods claim they achieve longer lasting products or crops resistant to pests; however, the GMOs are linked to cancer and other illnesses.

Monsanto receives government subsidies, and is reported to not test its products long term.  80% of conventional processed foods contain GMOs. Over 60 countries ban…
