Health & Nutritional Benefits of:

Nutrients in apricots can help protect the heart
and eyes, as well as provide the disease-fighting
effects of fiber. The high beta-carotene and
lycopene activity of apricots makes them
important heart health foods.

Apricots are a source of:

* Vitamin A that promote good vision,

* Vitamin C, dietary fiber that has a wealth of
benefits including preventing constipation and
digestive conditions.

Most Americans get less than 10 grams of fiber
per day. A healthy, whole foods diet should
include apricots as a delicious way to add to your
fiber intake, and also

* Potassium. Apricots contain powerful

Three servings of fruit may sound like a lot to
eat each day, but by simply tossing a banana
into your morning smoothie or slicing it over your
cereal, topping off a cup of yogurt or green salad
with a half-cup of berries, and snacking on an
apricot, you've reached this goal.

Creamy, rich, and sweet, bananas are a favorite
food for everyone from infants to elders. Sports
enthusiasts appreciate the potassium-power
delivered by this high-energy fruit.

Bananas are one of our best sources of
potassium, an essential mineral for maintaining
normal blood pressure and heart function. Since
the average banana contains a whopping 467
mg of potassium and only 1 mg of sodium, a
banana a day may help to prevent high blood
pressure and protect against atherosclerosis.
Research shows that men who ate diets higher in
potassium-rich foods, as well as foods high in
magnesium and cereal fiber, had a substantially
reduced risk of stroke.

Another study published in the September 8,
2003 edition of the Archives of Internal Medicine
also confirms that eating high fiber foods, such
as bananas, helps prevent heart disease.

In addition to these cardiovascular benefits, the
potassium found in bananas may also help to
promote bone health.

Potassium may counteract the increased urinary
calcium loss caused by the high-salt diets typical
of most Americans, thus helping to prevent
bones from thinning out at a fast rate.


Health & Nutritional Benefits Of:

Cranberries are low in calories, high in nutrition
and nutrients.

They are an excellent food for weight loss as

Cranberries have long been valued for their
ability to help prevent and treat urinary tract
infections. Now, recent studies suggest that this
native American berry may also promote
gastrointestinal and oral health, prevent the
formation of kidney stones, lower LDL and raise
HDL (good) cholesterol, aid in recovery from
stroke, and even help prevent cancer.


Health & Nutritional Benefits Of:

Preliminary studies show that flaxseed may help
fight everything from heart disease and diabetes
to breast cancer.

Some call it one of the most powerful plant
foods on the planet. There’s some evidence it
can help reduce the risk of heart disease,
cancer, stroke, and diabetes.

According to WebMD, although flaxseed contains
all sorts of healthy components, it owes its
healthy reputation primarily to three ingredients:

* Omega-3 essential fatty acids, "good" fats
that have been shown to have heart-healthy
effects. Each tablespoon of ground flaxseed
contains about 1.8 grams of plant omega-3s.

* Lignans, which have both plant estrogen and
antioxidant qualities. Flaxseed contains 75 - 800
times more lignans than other plant foods

* Fiber. Flaxseed contains both the soluble and
insoluble types.


Health & Nutritional Benefits Of:

Scientists have discovered many health benefits
from eating blueberries. They are one of the
richest sources of antioxidants of the fruits and
vegetables that have been studied. Antioxidants
are responsible in part for keeping us healthily
and young. They help fight cell damaging "free
radicals". Free radicals are unstable substances
that our bodies produce as we get older. They
damage human cells and our DNA. US scientists
have shown that the antioxidants contained in
Blueberries help to slow the ageing process and
reduce the risk of cancer.

Chemical studies in the US by the Agricultural
Research Service have very recently revealed
that Blueberries (as well as strawberries and
raspberries) contain chemicals that decreased
the growth of cervical and breast cancer cells by
a considerable percentage.
Blueberries have also found to contain
resveratrol, another potential anti-cancer agent.

Blueberries have also shown to not only halt the
ageing process but actually reverse it!
Experiments have also indicated that eating
Blueberries improves short-term memory loss
and improves balance and co-ordination.
Laboratory studies published in the Journal of
Agricultural and Food Chemistry show that
phenolic compounds in blueberries could inhibit
colon cancer cell proliferation and induce
apoptosis (programmed cell death).

Blueberries can help relieve both diarrhea and
constipation. In addition to soluble and insoluble
fiber, blueberries also contain tannins, which act
as astringents in the digestive system to reduce
inflammation. Blueberries also promote urinary
tract health. Blueberries contain the same
compounds found in cranberries that help
prevent or eliminate urinary tract infections. In
order for bacteria to infect, they must first
adhere to the mucosal lining of the urethra and
bladder. Components found in cranberry and
blueberry juice reduce the ability of E. coli, the
bacteria that are the most common cause of
urinary tract infections, to adhere.


Health & Nutritional Benefits Of:

* Poppy seeds contain many plant derived
chemical compounds that are known to have
anti-oxidant, disease preventing and health
promoting properties.
* Their unique nutty aromatic flavor is due to
many fatty acids and essential volatile oils.  
Research studies suggest that diet which is rich
in monounsaturated fatty acids helps to prevent
coronary artery disease and strokes by favoring
healthy blood lipid profile.
* Poppy seeds outer coat is rich in dietary fiber.
*  Dietary fibers bind to bile salts (produced
from cholesterol) and decrease their
re-absorption in colon, thus help lower serum
LDL cholesterol levels.
*  The seeds are excellent source B-complex
vitamins such as thiamin, pantothenic acid,
pyridoxine, riboflavin, niacin, and folic acid. Many
of these functions as co-factors in substrate
*  Poppy seeds contain good levels of minerals
like iron, copper, calcium, potassium,
manganese, zinc and magnesium. Copper is
required in the production of red blood cells. Zinc
is a co-factor in many enzymes that regulate
growth and development, sperm generation,
digestion and nucleic acid synthesis. Potassium
in an important component of cell and body
fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood
pressure. Manganese is used by the body as a
co-factor for the powerful anti-oxidant enzyme
superoxide dismutase.

Strawberries are particularly high in Vitamin C,
Manganese, Iodine and Potassium.

There are a lot of studies that associate
strawberry consumption with lower rates of
cancer, heart disease and asthma.

The calorie content of a strawberry is relatively
minimal. Research has also shown that
Strawberries help promote eye health.
Strawberries also contain properties that help
fight inflammation. In particular they have been
shown to greatly help in preventing forms of
arthritis because of the strong anti-inflammatory

Health & Nutritional Benefits Of:

A study found that a substance in cocoa helps
the body process nitric oxide (NO), a compound
critical for healthy blood flow and blood pressure.

Another study showed that flavonols in cocoa
prevent fat-like substances in the bloodstream
from oxidizing and clogging the arteries, and
make blood platelets less likely to stick together
and cause clots. Flavonoids are plant compounds
with potent antioxidant properties; so far,
scientists have found more than 4,000 kinds.
Cocoa beans contain large quantities of
flavonoids, and so do red wine, tea, cranberries,
peanuts, strawberries, apples and many other
fruits and vegetables. The flavonoids in
chocolate are called flavonols.

The latest research correlates eating
flavonoid-rich foods with a reduced risk of
cardiovascular disease was presented in February
at the American Association for the Advancement
of Science's (AAAS) annual meeting in Boston.
