Ways to increase Resveratrol's
Cranberry Juice 1/2 cup
What is a resveratrol?
Resveratrol is found in grapes, wine, grape juice, peanuts, and berries, including blueberries, bilberries, and cranberries. Resveratrol is found only in the skins of grapes. "Resveratrol has been found to inhibit the proliferation of a variety of human cancer cell lines, including those from breast, prostate, stomach, colon, pancreatic, and thyroid cancer". Published at Organ State University. It is also being said to have anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. Studies have also shown that resvertrols have antioxidant activities , which decreases oxidized stress in tissues that leads to cancer. With Cancer one of the top three killers in the United States, because of the diet and lifestyle we lead, increasing these specific items would be of great use.
I would plan to incorporate these in along with the omega 3's daily planner. We are past trying to eat well. We are now working in specific areas of health. To know what fruits and vegetables can help within the areas of our bodies we can identify when something feels off or not right.
That is why having vegetables and fruits as a major source of dietary intake helps fight disease and health problems. Every source of vitamin and minerals helps a specific area to give you better health.
At times we think that we have a disease of health problem due to parents having genes to that. Science is now showing that even though you may be PRON to those health risk, it is in your hands to stop it before it happens. Lets take diabetes as an example. If a parent had this, it does not mean you WILL. If you know it is a risk for you this is where you can increase and decrease certain foods to keep the door shut on this problem.
Being Proactive is the best way to keep you healthy. So often we are Reactive, we do something about it after we get the lab results in. At this stage the damage has been done and now you can only maintain a balance. Be Proactive and take control now to stay away from cancer, diabetes, high cholesterol, stroke.
