Pauling authored over 1000 scientific influential papers along with a diverse line up of books. General Chemistry is an internationally used college textbook. The Nature of the Chemical Bond, written in 1931, is still revered as one of the most profound “scientific book[s] in the 20th century.” Pauling was also a dedicated humanitarian and an outspoken activist against nuclear testing, citing the damaging health effects of radioactive fallout on generations to come. He coined the phrase “molecular disease,” and for many years studied human physiology and the biochemistry of nutrition. It was Pauling who championed the efficacy of vitamin C as a vital element to treat the common cold, heart disease, and cancer. The burgeoning pharmaceutical, vaccine, and cancer industries did not approve of Pauling’s scientific prowess. But they were wrong. Pauling was right.

Life Extension sites epidemiological studies from 1992 that show individuals who take higher levels of vitamin C live longer and have fewer heart attacks “as [compared to] those with fewer levels.” reports that Iowa researchers have discovered that high levels ascorbic acid (vitamin C) delivered intravenously “increases hydrogen peroxide levels in cancer cells.” This action killed cancer cells in lab rats, but did not harm any other cells. The research mentions that ascorbic acid seemed to work best with pancreatic cancer cells, and the ability for ascorbic acid to be effective in other types of cancer cells, such as breast, brain, liver, lung, and skin, depend on “the measurement of catalyse activity in tumors.” Catalyse is an enzyme that plays a significant role in breaking up the bonds of hydrogen peroxide.

Linus Pauling and his team administered mega doses of vitamin C intravenously to 1000 cancer patients, reports, and, although they were ridiculed, they discovered that patients receiving their vitamin C protocol “lived four times longer than cancer patients who were not given vitamin C.”

Dr. Ronald Hoffman is the director of the Hoffman Center in New York City. He concludes that oral vitamin C will help your body’s immune system and repair mechanism, but the ability for it to be absorbed by the blood “maxes out at 500 milligrams.” For cancer treatment, Hoffman believes vitamin C must be given intravenously  “to spur the production of hydrogen peroxide” in areas of the body where cancer may be lurking.  He states: “IV vitamin C, when administered by a trained, experienced physician, is safe and well-tolerated, even at doses as high as 100,000 mg (100 grams) per day.”

The force of the pharmaceutical and cancer industries to keep you away from nutritional therapies has not abated. There are still internet references to the brilliant Dr. Linus A. Pauling as a “quack.” But Pauling, unlike today’s corporately controlled scientists, searched for the truth. He found it. And now, finally, mainstream scientists are merely catching up to his tremendous insights and discoveries.

Ten “secret” superfoods to boost health /superfoodnews/2017-02-09-10-secret-superfoods-to-boost-health.html /superfoodnews/2017-02-09-10-secret-superfoods-to-boost-health.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Given their large nutritional punch and incredible health benefits, most of us are seeking ways to include more superfoods in our diet. From exotic goji berries to antioxidant-rich acai bowls, these nutrient-dense superfoods often come with a high price tag many of us cannot afford.

Though it pays to include high-quality spirulina or chlorella in your daily diet, some everyday whole food ingredients found in grocery stores can supercharge your health as well – without breaking the bank. Below are 10 fantastic everyday foods that meet the superfood criteria and are easy to integrate into your daily routine. (RELATED: Learn more about superfoods at

1.      Watercress

When it comes to leafy greens, kale often gets all the superfood fame, leaving other greens, such as watercress, in the shade. And that’s a real shame since watercress, among many other leafy greens, is loaded with highly beneficial phytochemicals to ward off cancer and other life-threatening diseases. In addition to being a great cancer-fighter, the mustard oil in the leaves and stems works as a potent natural antibiotic and anti-inflammatory agent to improve digestion and overall health.

2.      Red bell peppers

This versatile vegetable gets its bright red color from high levels of anthocyanins, which act as powerful antioxidants protecting your body from free radical damage. Antioxidant-rich foods, such as bell peppers, are thought to play a significant role in the prevention of cancer, diabetes and heart disease.

3.      Sesame seeds

While their size may tell a different story, many seeds are actually nutrient powerhouses. They are packed with healthy fats, protein, fiber and essential vitamins and minerals to maintain good health. The beneficial oils in sesame seeds can reduce blood pressure, while their high concentration of phytates is believed to neutralize the cancer-causing effects of free radicals.

4.      Seaweed

As reported by The Telegraph, seaweed packs more iron than a sirloin steak, more fiber than prunes and more calcium than cheese. Furthermore, regular consumption of seaweed may lower cholesterol, reduce hypertension, improve digestion, boost weight loss and fight free radicals.

5.      Turmeric

This bright yellow-orange spice has a long history of medicinal and culinary uses in Asian countries. Touted to clear up acne and prevent or manage arthritis, heart disease and Parkinson’s, turmeric is rapidly becoming a kitchen staple in the West too.

6.      Mushrooms

Though the body has a hard time digesting raw mushrooms, when cooked, they release beneficial enzymes that are thought to lower LDL or bad cholesterol. Additionally, mushrooms are an excellent source of iron, which may boost energy levels and fight fatigue.

7.      Sweet potato

The sweet potato is a naturally sweet, orange-colored root vegetable that delivers a lot of nutritional benefits. One large sweet potato provides more than 100 percent of your daily requirement of vitamin A. Additionally, sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamins of the B-complex and carotenoids.

8.      Legumes

Legumes such as chickpeas, lentils and beans are among the best and cheapest sources of clean plant protein to build muscle and repair cells and tissues. Besides providing one of the body’s most essential building blocks, legumes are also a good source of fiber, complex carbohydrates, iron, magnesium, folate and potassium.

9.      Oranges

Oranges are a great source of vitamin C, fiber, folate, thiamin and potassium. According to the American Heart Association, daily orange consumption helps to improve blood vessel function, thereby reducing the risk of stroke and heart disease.

10.  Raspberries

Of all the nutrient-rich foods high in antioxidants, berries nearly always steal the show. While we often see blueberries topping superfood lists, raspberries surely match their beneficial effects. These delicious sweet treats are packed with more fiber than most other fruits, and are loaded with a host of antioxidants such as vitamin C, gallic acid and quercetin, that lower the risk of cancer, heart disease and age-related conditions.

As you can see, you don’t need to spend a fortune to reap the benefits of superfoods. These foods are inexpensive and easily accessible, no matter where you live. Or why not try to grow your own?

Tom Brady eats organic clean foods and superfoods to keep WINNING /superfoodnews/2017-02-04-tom-brady-eats-organic-clean-foods-superfoods-to-keep-winning.html /superfoodnews/2017-02-04-tom-brady-eats-organic-clean-foods-superfoods-to-keep-winning.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 If you want to know why the lying “fake news” media hates Tom Brady so much, it’s not solely that he’s a friend and supporter of President Donald Trump. It’s also the fact that Tom Brady follows an organic clean foods / superfoods diet to supercharge his mental and physical performance. The media hates nutrition success stories, because many of the most lucrative mainstream media advertisers are processed food companies that routinely push dietary disinformation to downplay the benefits of healthy eating.

Superfoods like cacao, kale and berries offer powerful, protective effects against aging, too. It’s one of the reasons why Tom Brady is able to keep performing as a world class champion even at 39 years old (which is near retirement age for a professional football player).

NFL games, sadly, are funded in large part by junk food and junk beverage companies that exploit NFL viewership to not merely push disease-promoting junk products but also ignore any real link between players’ diets and on-the-field performance. This means that not only is the NFL pushing poison for your body, but by inviting unhinged Left-wing sociopathic exhibitionists like Lady Gaga to parade around like lunatics for the half time performance, they’re also pushing poison for your mind.

At the same time, lying food industry shills who write for mainstream “fake news” media outlets are viciously attacking Tom Brady for his clean foods diet, ridiculously claiming his diet is somehow “BS” when in fact it’s the real diet of champions.

A year-end look at superfoods: What’s good, bad and just odd /superfoodnews/2016-12-28-a-year-end-look-at-superfoods-whats-good-bad-and-just-odd.html /superfoodnews/2016-12-28-a-year-end-look-at-superfoods-whats-good-bad-and-just-odd.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Over the past few years, the term ‘superfood’ has become a popular buzzword in the food and health language. We all know that an active lifestyle combined with a balanced diet packed with fresh, organic fruits and vegetables remains the best way to ensure optimal health. However, some foods are so nutrient dense that they stand out from the rest.

These super nutrient-dense foods are loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants, and other health-boosting phytonutrients. When we think of superfoods things such as kale, blueberries, chia seeds, and goji berries immediately spring to mind. While these are touted for their super powers, every year new contenders that offer a tremendous dietary and healing potential are added to the superfood list.

The superfood fad is set to continue in 2017, so here are the past year’s trendiest health foods that will carry their superfood status into the new year.

1.      Chlorophyll

Chlorophyll is the green plant pigment crucial for the process of photosynthesis. It pulls in light rays from the sun and converts them to energy. Besides sustaining plant life, it turns out adding chlorophyll to your yogurt bowl, water, or cold-pressed juice has some tremendous effects on human health too.

Chlorophyll is an excellent liver detoxifier that promotes energy, mental clarity, and weight loss. Furthermore, it has been shown to bind and eliminate environmental pollutants including toxic heavy metals, pollution, and certain carcinogens.

2.      Activated charcoal

While this chalky substance has been used for ages to treat poisonings and drug overdoses, activated charcoal in lemonades and hangover pills seem to be a growing trend. However, Vogue warns that regular use may not be such a great idea because it can interfere with the absorption of other vital nutrients.

3.      Maple water

Introduced as the alternative to coconut water, maple water stimulates the immune system and is loaded with abscisic acid (ABA), which helps move sugar out of the bloodstream. However, critics are not sure if this trend will still stand in 2017 as it has less flavor, fewer electrolytes, and is more expensive than coconut water.

4.      Bone broth

Celebrities like Salma Hayek and Gwyneth Paltrow swear by it. Bone broth is rich in collagen, glutamine, glycine, and proline, all essential to muscle and ligament function and repair. Furthermore, the collagen has also been shown to reduce intestinal inflammation for a healthier gut.

5.      Almond butter

According to researchers at the Harvard Medical School, a diet containing nuts can contribute to lessening the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. This overly delicious snack is believed to grow in popularity within the next year.

6.      Banana flour

While you might not have heard of banana flour yet, it is on its way to rocking the superfood world. This gluten-free flour is an excellent prebiotic that promotes the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut, which boost immunity and weight loss and improve overall health.

7.      Acai bowls

If you haven’t seen an acai bowl passing by on Instagram, then you’ve probably lived under a rock for the greater part of 2016. Acai berries are the superstars when it comes to antioxidants that fight inflammation, lower oxidative stress, and promote brain health. Furthermore, they are packed with fibers and heart-healthy fats.

8.      Kefir

In 2016, a lot of attention has gone to our gut health and pre- and probiotics. While many cultures have been drinking the fermented dairy beverage for centuries, the West has now jumped on the kefir bandwagon and has called it a superfood.

9.      Turmeric

Turmeric is one of the most revered spices in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine. Recently, word of turmeric’s powers has spread through the rest of the world. It works wonders in the treatment of chronic inflammation and has been linked to reducing the risk of breast, prostate, lung, and colon cancer.

10. LaCroix

Since the 1990s, LaCroix’s sugar-free seltzer water has been a favorite amongst Midwestern mothers. As more influential and famous people openly began popping cans of LaCroix’s sparkling water as a healthy alternative to soda, it has massively grown in popularity.

Grow these five great superfoods quickly – even indoors /superfoodnews/2016-07-22-grow-these-five-great-superfoods-quickly-even-indoors.html /superfoodnews/2016-07-22-grow-these-five-great-superfoods-quickly-even-indoors.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 ( Gardening is a great and cost-effective way to increase your intake of healthy plant foods, as well as increasing your family’s self-sufficiency. But starting a garden can be daunting for people with limited experience. In particular, beginners may have trouble with the often months-long wait required before garden plants are ready for harvest.

Such reluctant gardeners should consider the following five plants, which are easy to grow, and deliver edible results within about a month. As an added bonus, all five grow great indoors, and are therefore suitable even for people living in apartments or other places with limited yard space.

Growing basics

When starting a garden, remember that all vegetables need light, water, air and nutrients (in the form of good soil). Indoor plants should be situated near a window. All of the following crops can be grown even in the winter, as long as they get five to six hours of sun per day.

Plants can be grown indoors in any size container, from a small pot for one plant to a large growing flat. For indoor gardening, be sure to fill containers with potting soil, rather than garden soil. Also make sure that the containers drain well, so your plants don’t drown.

All the following vegetables can be grown easily from seed. Plants should be spaced about four inches apart, but seeds can be planted closer, as long as you thin the plants one they come up. Plants will yield best if harvested from frequently.

Five fast-growing superfoods

Baby greens are a great place to start: they grow fast and easily, and are packed with important nutrients. One of the best is baby spinach, which can be harvested within four weeks of planting. It thrives in containers, even when planted close together.

Spinach is high in a wide variety of phytochemicals that have been shown to help fight cancer, along with vitamin C, folate, vitamin K and iron. While most of these nutrients are best absorbed from raw spinach, some, such as iron, are best absorbed when spinach is cooked. A good compromise is to lightly cook your baby spinach, without much water.

Lettuce is grown like spinach, and can be picked starting about 30 days after planting, as soon as the leaves are three inches long. Lettuce is an excellent source of vitamin C – a powerful, immune-boosting and cancer-fighting antioxidant. Lettuce also aids digestion.

Another fast-growing superfood is radish, which has the advantage of being incredibly efficient: both roots and leaves are edible. In fact, the leaves are even higher in vitamin C, calcium and protein than the roots are. Radish is also high in cancer-fighting anthocyanins, as well as zinc, phosphorus and B-vitamins. The roots can be harvested starting 25 to 30 days after planting. As an added advantage, radishes come in an incredible diversity of varieties.

Green onions are another efficient food: the white bulbs have a flavor like onions, while the green leaves have a flavor like chives. Only the tiny roots are inedible. Green onions take up only minimal space, and can be picked as little as three weeks after planting. They are high not only in potassium and vitamin C, but also in the super-antioxidant quercetin. Quercetin has been shown to help protect against chronic conditions including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, allergies and asthma.

The last of the great starter vegetables is baby carrots (a separate variety from regular carrots). These take just 30 days to mature, nearly three weeks less than regular carrots. They are among the easiest crops to plant; just scatter the seeds on top of the soil and moisten them.

Carrots are renowned for their high levels of beta-carotenes, which the body turns into vitamin A. Numerous studies have also linked beta-carotenes and other chemicals found in carrots to cancer-fighting effects.

The 10 TOP superfoods for women /superfoodnews/2016-07-14-the-10-top-superfoods-for-women.html /superfoodnews/2016-07-14-the-10-top-superfoods-for-women.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 ( Rushed. That’s how women feel in the modern age. In a hurry to get the house cleaned, the shopping done, the kids to school, that presentation for work ready. No one expects more from us than we expect from ourselves. Trying to cram 30 hours of ToDos into each day means we are bound to cut corners. The corners we most often cut are those we need for our own health. We are accustomed to ‘sucking it up.’ Always planning for ‘when things settle down,’ we aren’t willing to accept that chaos is the new normal.

If you find yourself thinking you’ll wait until the kids are older before you get back to the gym, or feeling guilty about swinging through the drive-thru one more time, consider this: 80 percent of your immunity comes from you gut, and therefore, your diet. Your physical and mental performance is directly affected by what you eat. If you need more energy and brainpower, you’ve got to make your diet more of a priority.

The nutrients you need to run on ‘optimum’

Everyone, including women, need to eat nutrient-rich foods to maintain their health. One area in your budget you should probably try to increase is your food budget. We all spend money on our health. It is a toxic, crowded world and there is no escape from that expense. You can choose if you spend less money on food and more on medicine, or more on better food and supplements and less on medicine. With the latter, you’ll have a better quality of life, but it does take more time and effort.

The nutrients we need our food to be rich in include:

• Protein for muscle and strength

• Iron for our blood

• Folic acid for the formation of both red and white blood cells

• Chromium for healthy blood sugar

• Calcium for bones and teeth

• Magnesium for many things including healthy organs

• Vitamin D for heart and bone health

• Vitamin C for immunity and antioxidants

• B vitamins for adrenal health and to fight stress

• Enzymes for digestion and nutrient absorption

• Fiber to get the most out of your food and help fight disease

• Essential fatty acids to nourish your brain and vascular system

• Lots of good, clean water

Superfoods provide optimum nutrition

The best way to get all of these nutrients every day is to incorporate foods into your diet that will do double duty. Superfoods usually provide more than just a few vitamins and minerals. They nourish your body with essential vitamins and minerals, while also helping to fight disease, providing you with balanced health.

The top 10 superfoods for women:

1. Dark green leafy vegetables. This is what humans were designed to eat as the main portion of our diet, and what Americans don’t get enough of – things like kale and Swiss chard. The nutrients are too numerous to list, but include lots of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, powerful phytochemicals, and more that will ensure optimum functioning for your body. This is where you’ll get your folic acid, hormone support, liver support, disease prevention, proper pH, and even some iron and protein. Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and brussel sprouts are invaluable as well.

2. Lean meat, beans, and legumes. You must have a clean, healthy source of protein and iron. Grass-fed beef or lamb are good choices, as are many beans and lentils. Low in fat, high in fiber beans are very nutritious and a staple in vegetarian diets. Garbanzo beans, red kidney beans, black beans; easy to cook, inexpensive, versatile.

3. Whole grains. Important for fiber and energy, carbohydrates are downright dangerous to your health when they are over-processed and from GMO sources. Whole wheat does not mean whole grain. Consider some of the less used (and processed) ancient grains such as quinoa, spelt, and amaranth.

4. Fresh organic fruit. Full of flavonoids, antioxidants, enzymes, fiber (eat the peel!), and vitamins, fruit is the ‘sweets’ you were designed to eat (not sugar). On the superfood list: blueberries, goji berries, cranberries, cherries, kiwis, etc.

5. Nuts and seeds. EFAs, ALAs, fiber, good fats, these superfoods are disease fighters. Chia seeds and flax seeds (and meal) have lignans that fight breast cancer by inhibiting the growth and development of tumors. Almonds, walnuts, pistachios, and other nuts provide healthy fats necessary for everything from a healthy heart to healthy joints.

6. Avocado. Full of healthy fats, antioxidants, and phytonutrients, avocados will lower triglycerides, nourish your brain, and prevent wrinkles. One of the best anti-aging foods you can consume, avocados are versatile – add to a smoothie, spread on a sandwich, or top a wrap with slices.

7. Fish. The essential fatty acids (EFAs) found in fish such as wild-caught salmon and sardines are essential to your health. They are also a good source of low-fat protein. If you are concerned about the health of our oceans, you can get your EFAs from things like flax and walnuts.

8. Chocolate. That’s right. If you stick to this list, you’ll need a reward. Why not some antioxidant-rich dark chocolate? A good-for-you treat, a little goes a long way and will help satisfy your sweet tooth.

9. Spice it up. Cooking at home allows you control over the ingredients you consume, and the opportunity to make your food extra nutritious by adding some time-honored flavorings known for their health benefits. Cook with garlic, onion, mushrooms, cinnamon, turmeric, rosemary, and others. All have wonderful flavors and immune-boosting properties.

10. Spirulina and chlorella. Not necessarily easy to eat, these amazing superfoods are worth their weight in gold to your health. Add to smoothies or take as a supplement to fight and prevent disease and maintain optimum health. For more information, check out the links below.

Additional guidelines

Ask yourself before you eat if the food you are looking at is nutrient-rich or nutrient-poor, and eat accordingly. Try to eat at least eight different colored foods each day. Raw foods are the only way to get enzymes, which are the key to good digestion and fewer allergies. You must grow your own food or buy organic food to get enzymes, or take supplements, as all other foods are irradiated which kills them. You also need probiotics for good gut health. Eat fermented foods such as sauerkraut or yogurt, especially after taking pharmaceutical antibiotics. Make and take your food rather than eating out; that’s the best way to know what you’re getting and to avoid the time crunch that ends up with you at the drive-thru window. Don’t forget to address underlying emotional issues because they will affect your health in the long-run. Lastly, do invest some time in top quality whole-food based vitamins and supplements for those days when you don’t get enough superfoods.

Superfoods can SAVE a life: Man who BEAT stage 3 colon cancer travels America promoting nutrition /superfoodnews/2016-07-06-superfoods-can-save-a-life-man-who-beat-stage-3-colon-cancer-travels-america-promoting-nutrition.html /superfoodnews/2016-07-06-superfoods-can-save-a-life-man-who-beat-stage-3-colon-cancer-travels-america-promoting-nutrition.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 It was December of 2003. Chris Wark was just 26 years of age and had just been diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer. His diet before this time fit into three categories —  junk, processed or fast food. Following a surgical procedure that removed eighteen centimeters of his ileum and colon, lymph nodes and a golf ball-sized tumor, as Natural News reports, he was pressured to have “nine to twelve months of chemotherapy.” But instead of following this cookie-cutter recipe from the cancer industrial complex, he refused. As Chris describes in this video, his oncologist told him he was “insane” to do so.

Today, thirteen years and two beautiful children later, Chris Wark is a tremendous inspiration for alternative medicine and super foods. How did he do it? He and his wife sought the answer through prayer and began a journey with highly nutritious foods that completely removed Chris’s cancer and radically changed their lives. In Chris’s words, he made his “body inhospitable to cancer.” The organic super foods and specific nutritional supplements he begin to take strengthened his immune system, the opposite of chemotherapy and radiation protocols that could have destroyed it.

Chris began juicing carrots, ginger, celery and beets, drinking at least 64oz per day. He ate fresh organic fruit and massive fresh salads with ingredients that pack a punch of anti-cancer phytonutrients like kale, red cabbage, broccoli, spinach and cauliflower, along with turmeric, garlic, apple cider vinegar, oregano and cayenne pepper. He found a nutritionist who helped tweak his diet, adding some cooked vegetables like asparagus, squash and brown rice. The protein component was organic lamb and wild caught Alaska salmon. And let’s not forget Chris’s delicious Anti-Cancer Coconut Fruit Smoothie!

Chris was also very fortunate that his nutritionist understood the power of vitamin C and glutathione in IV form. He and his wife also removed toxic chemicals from their home, including bathing and cleaning products. Another very important element in his healing process was drinking many ounces of clean, purified alkaline water.

Chris’s recovery has sparked many other people to “just say no” to chemotherapy and radiation. Each body is unique, and certain natural therapies might work better than others. But one thing we do know for sure is that robust organic nutrition is light years better than the cancer industry’s treadmill. Read more of Chris Wark-inspired survivor stories here.

5 Foods To Eat After A Workout To Super-Charge Your Weight Loss /superfoodnews/2016-06-28-5-foods-to-eat-after-a-workout-to-super-charge-your-weight-loss.html /superfoodnews/2016-06-28-5-foods-to-eat-after-a-workout-to-super-charge-your-weight-loss.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000
No one needs to tell you that slimming down isn’t always easy. So give those stubborn pounds the one-two punch by taking your post-workout snack or meal to the next level. “After exercise, your body needs specific nutrients to repair muscle and stabilize blood sugar,” says Cassie Bjork, RD, a Minneapolis-based dietitian and owner of That means the right mix of foods can improve your recovery whilerevving your metabolism.(Article by Sharon Liao)Ready to ramp up your results? The following combos put you on the fast track to weight loss. Aim to eat something within an hour of finishing your workout, when your muscles are primed to absorb nutrients most efficiently. (Walk off 22 pounds in just 8 weeks and get an MP3 player!)

During that fitness class your body burns carbs for fuel. The wrap’s fiber-rich grains and veggies replenish these stores while keeping your blood sugar levels steady, says Jessica Crandall, RDN, a Denver-based fitness instructor, dietitian, and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The result: You’ll feel energized instead of drained, so you’ll be less likely to overeat later on.

Pairing those carbs with protein-rich turkey may help you recover more quickly, according to a study published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise. Plus, “protein helps your body repair and build muscle, which boosts your metabolism,” says Bjork.

Almonds and an orange

Gotta dash after your run? Toss this portable treat in your bag. Not only do thenuts serve up protein and healthy fats, but they can also take the edge off your hunger. In one study, University of California, Davis researchers found that snacking on almonds curbs appetite, so you won’t undo all of your hard work by overindulging later on.

Meanwhile, oranges deliver carbs, immune-boosting vitamin C, and hydration in one convenient package. “Because your body absorbs vitamins and minerals readily after exercise, it’s the perfect time to load up on nutrient-rich foods,” says Crandall.

Smoothie made with avocado, berries, and protein powder

Quick to whip up and easy to digest, smoothies are an ideal post-workout treat. Shake things up by adding few slices of avocado. Not only does it add satisfying creaminess, but it also can help you stay fuller, longer. According to a study inNutrition Journal, people whose lunches included avocado felt 23% more satisfied—and felt less hungry afterward—than those whose lunches didn’t include the fruit. Bonus: The healthy fats in avocados support your joint function, which can help you pound the pavement or land those box jumps ache-free.

To sweeten the deal, mix in a handful of antioxidant-rich frozen berries and a scoop of your favorite protein powder (or try this organic whey protein), says Bjork. Or, if you prefer, swap in Greek yogurt, which contains 11 grams of protein per half cup.

These 10 superfoods will help reduce your stress levels /superfoodnews/2016-06-17-these-10-superfoods-will-help-reduce-your-stress-levels.html /superfoodnews/2016-06-17-these-10-superfoods-will-help-reduce-your-stress-levels.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 ( There is just no doubting that higher levels of stress can definitely affect your appetite.

For some, stress reduces appetite and for others stress causes ravaging hunger. Either way, you need healthy, organic food that soothes stress so that your body can cope. This is the very best form of medication.

Of course, many us of have a tendency to eat inflammatory junk food when stressed. Eating food laced with chemicals, sugar, hydrogenated oils and empty calories fuels the fire of chronic stress and only makes you feel worse in the end.

It’s perplexing that even though we know this, some of us still eat far too many junky “comfort” food that in turn send us further down the road to misery and an early grave. What is the purpose of this self-sabotage?.

If it’s time for you to end this destructive practice and say hello to the new comfort foods.

1. Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate contains magnesium, which helps ease emotional tension. Dark chocolate also contains theo bromine, which is a natural mood elevator. Find a good source of organic, raw chocolate for even better results. Don’t overdo it!

2. Almonds

Almonds are rich in vitamins B2 and E. Both of these nutrients boost the immune system during episodes of stress. Just a few almonds a day does the job.

3. Spinach

Spinach is high in magnesium, the mineral that helps regulate cortisol levels and promote emotional well-being. A cup of spinach per day provides 40 percent of your daily need.

4. Turkey

The high levels of tryptophan in turkey signal the brain to release serotonin, which promotes calmness, peace of mind and even sleepiness when you need it.

5. Oatmeal

Oatmeal also promotes serotonin in the brain. Use old fashioned, courser oats as they take longer to break down, which is easier on your pancreas.

6. Sweet Potatoes

Sweep potatoes are full of fiber, beta-carotene, and other immunity-boosting anti-oxidants that fight inflammation and give you a smooth, peaceful feeling.

7. Yogurt

Yogurt is a wonderful, calcium-rich, probiotic and acid neutralizer. Go with organic yogurt rather than the stuff made with contaminated, commercial dairy products!

8. Asparagus

Stress and depression has been linked to low levels of folic acid, which can be found in abundance in asparagus. A single cup provides two-thirds of your daily value.

9. Avocado

Full of B vitamins, avocados are a great stress buster. They’re also high in potassium and monounsaturated fat, which lower blood pressure.

10. Blueberries

Blueberries are the low sugar super fruit packed with antioxidants and vitamin C, making them great stress-busters. The body needs vitamin C and antioxidants to help repair and protect cells.

Imagine spending the next three weeks incorporating these super nutritious, calming super foods into your diet and eliminating inflammatory foods that promote stress. You’ll feel the difference!

Can you do it?

If you doubt your ability or desire to maintain the healthy nutrition plan that you deserve, you may be susceptible to self-sabotage, which happens when you knowingly or unknowingly act against your best interest.

In episodes of self-sabotage, many people return to an old, familiar place of helplessness, discouragement, rejection, stress or self-deprivation. Sometimes these old feelings are so familiar that we cling to them, rather than venture into unknown, albeit healthier and happier, territory.

When self-sabotage is running your life, stress is the result. So, even though you know what you should do to reduce stress, the pattern of self-sabotage steers you away from even the most obvious solutions.
