|Christmas ham still going strong|
I am asking you to come out of that four-week long coma. It's time to clear your blood stream and digestive track and clean up the body. We changed curtains and painted the house for the season, what could be so hard in doing it for ourselves?
Here are a couple local items to get you started. You may even be surprised who made the list.
|Sprinkle me please?|
|What a hunk!|
Mauby is a diuretic which means if you don't want to wet the bed, don't drink it before you sleep. In all seriousness, the more often your urinate, the greater opportunity you body has to get rid of excess salts (ham-like salts) and toxins (rum-like toxins). This in turn, can lower blood pressure and the occurrence of hypertension.
It's also rich in saponins, like the ones used to make soap. That's why he always looks so bubbly all the while hiding that bitter hate inside. Saponins attract those delicious cholesterol globules to themselves and prevent the body from taking them up, saving you from clogged up blood vessels and an overworked liver.
Studies have shown that 300ml of the diluted commercialized beverage can significantly lower your blood pressure. And when mixed with milk acts as a blood 'builder'. Give the guy a chance. You won't regret it.
|Ready to embrace my inner coconut woman|
To me, coconut water is the God-given gatorade. I have two of these every weekend, just for the fun of it. I'm an islander; sue me. It's the perfect composition of sugars, lipids, ions, vitamins, amino acids and enzymes to grow tissue cultures and therefore is ready to fuel you body back to a healthy level of metabolism. Um um Sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium are the ions that ensure the proper running of your body's cellular processes . Coconut water, being the best wingman ever, has a similar set-up to that found in blood. So guess whose blood pressure will be under control. And as a bonus, add mauby to the mix and the effect is doubled. Scientist's honour! Try 2-3 coconuts a week and see results within three.
Sorrel's gift has always been its insane amount of polyphenols. Anthocyanins,tannins, saponins and ascorbic acid team up to provide you 165mg of antioxidants per serving. Whether you are eating the seeds and leaves or drinking the juice of the calyx expect to improve your immunity with every bite and sip. It helps to actively remove free radicals that are accumulating in your body since you started Christmas binging. Chase a fever away, recover from a hangover, lower blood pressure with its diuretic properties are just of few of the many talents. That means get a glass of sorrel minus the sugar and the rum and starting once a week try a cleaner, safer version of your favourite Christmas drink.
|Root for me baby!|
It is most effective as tea or in curries. No Oil Down does not qualify as a viable source of curcumin.
