Should I be Drinking Wine?

 Should I be drinking wine?

Of course You should!

wine

Resveratrol,  a trihydroxy stilbene derivative C14H12O3 that is found in some plants, fruits, seeds, and grape-derived products (such as red wine) and has been linked to a reduced risk of coronary disease and cancer, and may be the wonder ingredient responsible for many of wine’s benefits.

See these fourteen benefits of wine to prove this to you!

1. You live Longer!  People living in places in the world with high wine consumption, are living longer, also according to dietary patterns.

Researchers at Harvard Medical School uncovered evidence that resveratrol directly activates a protein that promotes health and longevity in animal models.

  • 2. You get Smarter and Resveratrol may help improve short-term memory
  • 3. Inhibit breakouts because of the antioxidants in wine, and Resveratrol is able to inhibit the growth of acne-causing bacteria longer than benzoyl peroxide
  • 4. Going to the gym is healthy right? It improves heart, brain and bone function. You know what else does that? Resveratrol, which is in wine.

5.Researchers in Spain found that those who drank two to seven glasses of wine per week were less likely to be diagnosed with depression, so Bye Bye Blues!

6. Modest wine consumption, defined as one glass a day, may decrease the prevalence of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD). Challenging any other alcohol consumption.

7. Promotes Eye health, as Resveratrol stops out-of-control blood vessel growth in the eyes.

8. Wine reduces bacteria on your teeth!

9. Wine cut Cancer Risks:

Red grapes are the fruit best able to suppress the activity of aromatase, the enzyme used by breast tumors to produce their own estrogen – this is called an aromatase inhibitor.

Studies show that moderate consumption of red wine can reduce the risk of colon cancer by 50%.

Harvard Men’s Wealth Watch reports that men who drink an average of four to seven glasses of red wine per week have a 52% less chance of being diagnosed with prostate cancer compared to those who don’t drink wine. Doctors speculate that flavonoids and resveratrol contain potent antioxidants and may counterbalance androgens, the male hormones that stimulate the prostate.

10. Studies show that those who drank wine were less likely to come down with a cold compared to those that drank beer or spirits. Antioxidants help lower inflammation and reduce the symptoms of colds.

11. Wine’s Resveratrol, lower cholesterol.

12. Wine shows benefits of reducing risk of stroke, where beer and hard liquor do not.

13.  Regulating Blood Sugars

The amount of polyphenols in a small glass of red wine appears to rival the blood sugar regulating activity of certain diabetes drugs.

14. Those who drink wine moderately have 30% lower risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. This can be due to Resveratrol, as it improves sensitivity to Insulin.

SO, Bottom line: Wine can be a part of a healthy lifestyle, IF CONSUMED MODERATELY!

Processed Meats: Rather Eat Poison!

proc·ess1
/ˈpräˌses,ˈpräsəs,ˈprō-/

Verb
”perform a series of mechanical or chemical operations on (something) in order to change or preserve it­­­” *Google definition*

Does this sound like something you want to put into your body? Sorry for my language, but Hell No!

Sadly, in this day of age, almost all food is processed and that is why people are dying early and living with far more diseases than ever before. There are processed meats among many, such as bacon, sausage, hot dogs, sandwich meat, packaged ham, pepperoni, salami and all red meat used in frozen prepackaged meals. All these have sodium nitrite and monosodium glutamate (MSG) inside them which is a major cause of cancer these days and we don`t even take it seriously.

Ofcourse, it is more expensive and more work to watch what your eating, but it is VERY IMPORTANT! You don`t want to wake up in 10 years saying I wish I focused more on my health! Trust me.

If you dont belive me, see what the experts are saying:

”The World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) has just completed a detailed review of more than 7,000 clinical studies covering links between diet and cancer. Its conclusion is rocking the health world with startling bluntness: Processed meats are too dangerous for human consumption. Consumers should stop buying and eating all processed meat products for the rest of their lives.”

I will not repeat everything written in the article because I will be plagiarising every word because I don`t want you to miss out on anything as it is all important and should be taken to the ultimate priority list.

Read the following article and see what you have been missing:

BANANAS FIGHT CANCER!

Scientist have discovered that full ripe banana with dark patches produces a substance called TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor). TNF has the ability to combat abnormal cells. In fact, the riper the banana the more TNF it produces, leading to more anti-cancer substance. “Yellow skin banana with dark spots on it is 8x more effective in enhancing the property of white blood cells than green skin version“. This is a lesson for all those who like bananas, and only eat the non-fully ripened ones thinking they are no longer good, or simply for those that stay away from bananas because they simply don’t like them or think they are too fatning. Bananas are a very healthy fruit and now we learn some are anti-cancerous.

However, be careful if you are diabetic, if a banana is over-ripe, it is not good for you because of the high sugar level in it. However a well riped banana is perfectly healthy and better than non-riped banana. Bananas are good to incorporate in your diet if you are diabetic; simply mention is not to eat OVER riped bananas.

Read the following articles and learn more about the specific nutritions in Bananas.

Dandelion Tea? Can it be?

Speculations are going around about the dandelion tea and it’s possible ability to fight cancer. No proof has been out just yet and it seems some are weary about it as well, as too much ‘may’ be toxic.

Juicing: A Lifestyle Choice!

We see many diseases nowadays, it’s really sad. It just seems that cancer is everywhere and diseases are all over the human kind.

Fortunately I decided to make a life choice by buying myself a Juicer, I wanted to eliminate diseases as much as I can. It has been a healthy change and a life altering opportunity. I like juice, but I hate bottled juices because of the simple fact-Its Not Real! I love my new Breville Juicer (http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/breville-juice-fountain-bje510xl/10106546.aspx?path=bc4883d7e4811beeb2290aa11107751den02) Although I am still contemplating if it’s the right juicer for me!

I was influenced by my boyfriend to make this difference because my body and my lifestyle is the most important thing to insure. I want to influence you to make a change and focus on your health. Watch these videos, one is a little long but worth every minute, though for those who don’t have the time to watch a long video, I have also attached a very useful but shorter video which explains the health benefits of juicing and what juicers are recommended. You need to educate yourself about your health and know what is important for you to live a happier and healthier life. You feel more energy, more happiness, more healthy! Make a change, make an investment on your health!

Coconut Oil: The Answer to All Your Questions!

I was sitting with a friend today that was telling me how Coconut Oil changed her life; her skin, her hair, her health. It just seems that this coconut oil, organic, is so healthy and promotes great skin, hair and digestive system. I did my own research to learn more about this and find proof. I stumbled on few videos which really confirmed how amazing coconut oil is for you. If you have dry skin and need moisture, coconut oil is the answer, if your hair is lacking life, coconut oil is the answer, if you want to eat healthier, coconut oil is the answer.

Watch this video by Doctor Bruce Fife who talks about various benefits of coconut oil.

Furthermore, for girls interested in learning more about how coconut oil can help them, their hair and their skin, watch this next video with Pirouette Makeup.

“DIET” Sodas Is Not A Diet!

This concept is something I have been trying to influence on people around me for years. Diet Soda Does NOT mean you will not gain weight from it. Just because it has 0 calories does not mean it is DIET. Truth it, it does not make sense how something so sweet can have 0 Calories.

If its too good to be true, ITS NOT TRUE!

So here it is, if you don’t care about your health, at least care about the disappointment you will get out of this video, or at least I hope you do. If you want to ignore what is said and continue, then at least I tried. But I do hope that I can at least influence some, as this topic is one that I am passionate about! I see people around me always drinking these Diet sodas, and they really have it all wrong.

People trust these labels, denying all aspartame intake, so Please watch this video and I hope it will cause you to change your habits, because not only does aspartame cause cancer but it really has none of the positive effects (weight gain avoidance or weight loss) that many believe.
