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

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

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


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

* 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

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
*  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 metabolism.
*  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 properties.

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.
