NEW YOU Health Tip: When treating life’s ailments, consider the miracle of nutrition.
According to Robert DeMaria, D.C., NHD, owner of the Drugless Doctor brands, one half of a red apple, one-third cup beets, and four or five baby carrots or one medium sized are vital sources of nature’s medicine.
Apples: Eat least one half of an apple a day. Red apples, rich in anti-oxidants, minerals, and fiber, are great for digestion, while promoting liver function. Additionally, the pectin found in the fruit can reduce the risk or arteries hardening, heart attack, and strokes.
Beets: Eat just one-third cup everyday to lower cholesterol by up to 40%. Beets, which contain a negligible amount of calories are also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, and iron, with cancer-fighting antioxidant betacarotenes and fiber.
Carrots: The excellent source of antioxidants protect against cancer and cardiovascular disease, while improving skin and vision. They also reduce blood cholesterol level, relieve constipation, and work to boost the immune system.
