Kata orang jagalah permakananan sebab dari permakanan kita lah timbulnya pelbagai macam penyakit yang kita sendiri tidak sedar sudah bertengek didalam badan kita. Elak kan gorengan, french fries memang sedap tapi antara sedar dan tidak kita hanya makan minyak yang terkandung didalam nya. Masak lemak cili api pun sangat sedap atau jika pekena sup segala macam sup memang buat kita bertambah tambah nasi nya. pendek kata bayangkan saluran paip di dapur kita yang penuh dengan kotoran dan lemak..mungkin begitu lah benda didalam usus kita.
beberapa hari yang lalu makcik surf net tentang juice yang berkhasiat, meski pun sebelum ini makcik memang sangat suka kan juice buah buatan sendiri tetapi rupanya pengambilan juice dari exstrak buah saja tidak elok untuk kita apalagi jika kandungan gula didalam buah itu tinggi. jadi kena balance dengan pengambilan juice yang lain. alternatif nya adalah jus sayur.
semalam makcik buat juice dari buah buahan di bawah. ada lemon, celery, tomatoes, 3 ulas bawang putih, carrot dan juga daun parsely

1. Load up on lycopene
The antioxidant properties of lycopene may protect our immune cells from destructive free radicals, molecules that can harm cells and damage DNA. The best way to get lycopene—which is in the skin, and gives red tomatoes their rich colour—is through cooked or processed tomatoes (juice, sauce and paste). Cook tomatoes with a little healthy oil (e.g., olive or canola), which helps carry the lycopene into the bloodstream.
2. Care for your heart
Tomatoes are rich in vitamin C, which, like lycopene, is linked to reducing the risk of heart disease. Most of the vitamin C is concentrated in the jelly-like substance that encases the seeds. Tomatoes are also high in salicylates, which have an anti-clotting effect on the blood, and may be partially responsible for tomatoes' protective effect against heart disease. Many recipes advise removing the seeds to prevent a bitter flavour. But to conserve nutrients, use plum tomatoes, which have less-bitter seeds.
3. Help control asthma
A new Australian study found that adequate intake of lycopene and vitamin A helped reduce exercise-induced asthma symptoms.
4. Feed your bones
Tomatoes contain vitamin K, which plays a key role in clotting blood and maintaining strong bones. And, research from Boston University found that vitamin K deficiency is linked to a higher prevalence of hand and knee osteoarthritis.
Vitamin A helps maintain healthy skin, hair, mucous membrances, bones and teeth. One cup (250 mL) of chopped tomatoes provides over half of the recommended daily amount of vitamin A for women.
GARLIC - CREDIT Healthyeating.
Garlic is more than just a flavorful herb added to food. Used for its medicinal properties as long ago as ancient Egypt, garlic was also believed to have protective properties against plague in medieval Europe. Several natural compounds with biological activity have been identified as components of garlic. If you consume garlic, these chemicals may help keep you in general good health and might also help you avoid some potentially serious problems.
Consuming fresh garlic regularly might help you avoid certain cancers, according to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, whose website says that people who eat large amounts of garlic have less incidence of certain types of cancer. These include cancer of the prostate, uterus, breast and colon, as well as cancers that originate in the blood. In a laboratory study of garlic compounds published in 2011 in "Anticancer Agents in Medicinal Chemistry," researchers found that oily compounds from garlic suppressed growth of cultured human breast cancer cells and reduced the incidence of breast cancer in laboratory animals. They also found that garlic-derived compounds reduce the side effects of chemotherapy drugs and suggest that these chemicals might be useful for breast cancer therapy.
Effects on Cholesterol and Clotting
Cholesterol is a fatty compound that travels in your blood combined with protein in a lipoprotein. Low-density lipoprotein, or LDL, is sometimes called bad cholesterol because when its level is too high, your risk of atherosclerosis and heart attack increases. Compounds in fresh garlic might be beneficial in keeping your LDL levels in a healthy range, helping you avoid cardiovascular disease. In a review of many clinical trials published in 2010 in "Current Pharmaceutical Design," researchers concluded that garlic contains compounds effective in lowering blood levels of both LDL and total cholesterol, and suggested that garlic should be studied further as a possible therapy for those at risk of heart disease. According to Memorial Sloan-Kettering, garlic may also suppress aggregation of blood platelets, possibly reducing your risk of stroke and other problems caused by blood clots.
Chewing garlic regularly is considered safe and without any significant side effects, although chemicals in garlic might have some unpleasant gastrointestinal effects. These could include bad breath, a feeling of bloating, intestinal gas or nausea. When handling fresh garlic, exercise care to keep its juice away from your eyes, since the juice can be an irritant. Garlic might interact with some medicines, such as blood thinners. Before you self-treat with garlic, discuss its use with your doctor to determine the right course for your situation
CARROT - CREDIT Care2
Forget about vitamin A pills. With this orange crunchy powerfood, you get vitamin A and a host of other powerful health benefits including beautiful skin, cancer prevention, and anti-aging. Read how to get maximum benefits from this amazing vegetable.
Benefits of Carrots
1. Improved Vision Western culture’s understanding of carrots being “good for the eyes” is one of the few we got right. Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A in the liver. Vitamin A is transformed in the retina, to rhodopsin, a purple pigment necessary for night vision.
Beta-carotene has also been shown to protect against macular degeneration and senile cataracts. A study found that people who eat the most beta-carotene had 40 percent lower risk of macular degeneration than those who consumed little.
2. Cancer Prevention Studies have shown carrots reduce the risk of lung cancer, breast cancer and colon cancer. Researchers have just discovered falcarinol and falcarindiol which they feel cause the anticancer properties.
Falcarinol is a natural pesticide produced by the carrot that protects its roots from fungal diseases. Carrots are one of the only common sources of this compound. A study showed 1/3 lower cancer risk by carrot-eating mice.
3. Anti-Aging The high level of beta-carotene acts as an antioxidant to cell damage done to the body through regular metabolism. It help slows down the aging of cells.
4. Healthy Glowing Skin (from the inside)
Vitamin A and antioxidants protects the skin from sun damage. Deficiencies of vitamin A cause dryness to the skin, hair and nails. Vitamin A prevents premature wrinkling, acne, dry skin, pigmentation, blemishes, and uneven skin tone.
5. A Powerful Antiseptic Carrots are known by herbalists to prevent infection. They can be used on cuts – shredded raw or boiled and mashed.
6. Beautiful Skin (from the outside)
Carrots are used as an inexpensive and very convenient facial mask. Just mix grated carrot with a bit of honey. See the full recipe here: carrot face mask.
7. Prevent Heart Disease Studies show that diets high in carotenoids are associated with a lower risk of heart disease. Carrots have not only beta-carotene but also alpha-carotene and lutein.
The regular consumption of carrots also reduces cholesterol levels because the soluble fibers in carrots bind with bile acids.
8. Cleanse the Body
Vitamin A assists the liver in flushing out the toxins from the body. It reduces the bile and fat in the liver. The fibers present in carrots help clean out the colon and hasten waste movement.
9. Healthy Teeth and Gums It’s all in the crunch! Carrots clean your teeth and mouth. They scrape off plaque and food particles just like toothbrushes or toothpaste. Carrots stimulate gums and trigger a lot of saliva, which being alkaline, balances out the acid-forming, cavity-forming bacteria. The minerals in carrots prevent tooth damage.
10. Prevent Stroke:
From all the above benefits it is no surprise that in a Harvard University study, people who ate more than six carrots a week are less likely to suffer a stroke than those who ate only one carrot a month or less.
PARSLEY - CREDIT Webmd.com
Parsley is an herb. The leaf, seed, and root are used to make medicine. Be careful not to confuse parsley with fool's parsley and parsley piert.
