Some hidden depths to some common foods

applesAn apple, you may associate it with childhood, or it may be something you take to remain healthy.

Do we really know the often wondrous qualities of these commonplace foods?

I decided to delve a bit deeper into the additional qualities of some of these foods.

Did you know that that apple could protect your lungs from cigarette smoke?

Apples contain pectin which can remove cholesterol, toxic metals such as lead and mercury from the body.

What about Lemons, some may have heard that this is a healthy choice, but do we know the extent of why it is?

Lemons have anti microbial qualities, they can also reduce mucus in body.

They assist the liver, cleanse the blood and treat thick, poorly circulating blood, they also calm the nerves.

Cherries are another wonder fruit, they have been used to treat arthritis and rheumatism.

Cherries are very rich in iron can help treat anaemia, improving condition of the blood.

I revere carrots, I truly do, they are a powerhouse of nutrients and enhance our health innumerably.

Firstly Carrots benefit the lungs, improve the liver functioning, they treat indigestion.

They are alkaline forming, clearing acidic blood conditions such as acne and are a folk remedy for cancer.

The wonderful kale is a magnificent source of chlorophyll, which is rich in magnesium.

For those who have never tried Seaweed, I would ask you to do so.

Even in polluted waters they have the ability to purify the toxicity there.

They most resemble the composition of our blood, softening hardened areas in our bodies.

They cleanse our lymph, alkalize our blood and are extremely beneficial to our Thyroid.

This only touches the surface of the overwhelming qualities of nature’s bounty.

Also we get most benefits from taking them in raw form. If you can, choose organic too.

I firmly believe we have everything we need in plant based foods.

 We were designed for our health to flourish in the taking of these foods.
