CELERY-YIN MEDICINE AT ITS BEST
Got high blood pressure? Eat 6 stalks of celery each day and you can kiss it goodbye. Chinese Medicine has used celery to lower blood pressure thousands of years. It contains active compounds called pthalides, which can help relax the musclesaround arteries and allow the vessels to dilate. With more space inside the arteries, the blood can flow at a lower pressure. Pthalides also reduce stress hormones and help people to become more yin. Celery is high in organic sodium, but it would take over 30 stalks to more than the RDA of sodium for one day. In other words, people concerned in getting too much sodium need not worry aboutcelery. The leaves of celery reportedly have been shown to help the endocrine system so eat the leaves in addition to thestalk. Buy organic celery, because it’s one of the highest foods with pesticide residue that can’t be washed of.
MUSCADINE GRAPES-LIKE NOTHING ELSE.
Normal grapes area waste of time, but muscadine are oh so fine. Resveratrol in grape skin is thecompound in red wine that everyone knows prevents heart disease. The problemwith grapes is that most have lost their potent, mighty seed. This is the seed that God has commanded us to eat in Genesis. Muscadine grapes are seasonal,like pomelo, so buy them whenever you see them. They usually have 3 large seedsin each grape and a skin that is 4 times thicker than regular grapes. It is truly another enigma fruit that is here on this earth for healing. It is exceptionally good for heart disease. An unpublished study Sep 2006 discovered a compound in “grape seed extract” that reduces damage to blood vessels walls by 85% according tofindings presented at a biological conference on oxidative stress in Santa Barbara. Hardening of arteries begins with oxidative stress, leading to inflammation & ultimately damages the arterial walls. Grape seed extract is a potentanti-inflammatory compound, but forget about the extract, blend and get the real deal! .
