Vitamin C Slashes Stress

VitaminC

Getting enough vitamin C has surprising effect

on mood, reveal investigators in The American

Journal of Clinical Nutrition. When C-deficient hospital

patients were given 500 mg of the vitamin daily for 8 days,

they experience a 71 percent reduction in symptoms

such as irritabillity, fatique and sadness and a 51 percent

decrease in anxiety.  The study authors explain that

vitamin C is critical for maintaining balance in the

brain chemicals that govern our emotional response

to stress.

Plant compounds and fruit acids in cran-water detoxify

and heal the liver to rev fat burn and flush water weight.

Combine 8 oz of unsweetened cranberry juice with

56oz of water in a pitcher each morning and sip

8 glasses per day.

This is a great drink if you enjoy those daily cocktails,

eat out, and/or fatty or fried foods. If you ever had

an addiction problem with either drugs or alcohol, this

will help cleanse your liver no matter how long ago you

stopped drinking, since the carcinogens always stay in

the live.

Celery and Cancer Prevention

celery

Just eating two cups of celery weekly can help block the growth and spread of cancerous

cells in your pancreas, a University of Illinois study has shown.  Celery contains apigenin, a

compound that tinkers with the DNA of abnormal cells, forcing them to self-destruct.

Apigenin is also abundant in parsley, spinach and red wine.

We know that people who have diabetes, gout, BPH, ED, rheumatoid arthristic and several

other diseases are prone to pancreatic cancer.

Do not eat fresh spinach if you have any kidney or urological problems.
