Bring Your Cholesterol Down to a Healthy Level Without Drugs -The Most Powerful Superfood On Earth Tackles All Health Problems
When researching various health issues, it’s unusual to have one particular ingredient named as being associated with preventing pretty much every health hazard you encounter.
But this superfood improves everything from arthritis to high blood pressure to diabetes to dementia. It also boosts your mood and energy levels better than any power or energy drink out there. You name it, and it can pretty much fix it.
What’s more, they’re delicious and sweet tasting, almost everyone loves them, and they’re used in various meals, and eaten raw as a snack.
Blueberries have reached somewhat of a celebrity status among super foods due to their widespread health benefits.
Blueberries are loaded with antioxidants, making them an extremely powerful food to fight any type of immune disease or other diseases caused by inflammation, which, let’s face it, actually includes the majority of known modern diseases today.
What’s unique about blueberries is how many types of antioxidants they include. Whereas most berries only include 3-4 types, blueberries include over 20 different types of antioxidants, which is quite the feat to beat!
For the science geeks, here are some we can name: Anthocyanins (malvidins, delphinidins, pelargonidins, cyanidins, peonidins), Hydroxycinnamic acids (caffeic acids, ferulic acids, coumaric acids), Hydroxybenzoic acids (coumaric acids), Hydroxybenzoic acids (gallic acids, procatchuic acids), Flavonols (kaempferol, quercetin, myricetin), pterostilbene, and resveratrol.
And pretty much all of the above antioxidants (don’t ask me to pronounce them) are also extremely effective for inflammation and therefore serve as a double whammy.
It’s probably the wide variety of antioxidants that are the reason why they work for so many different types of diseases and health issues – they seem to be able to reach pretty much any part of the body.
Adding powerful antioxidant foods into your diet is extremely important. You’ll never get the same health benefits from antioxidant supplements.
In fact, studies on supplements have resulted in very controversial results, whereas pretty much all studies on blueberries in the diet show a positive impact on various diseases.
Let me give you a few examples:
Recently, several studies have shown the amazing benefits blueberries have on the cognitive system, especially in the elderly. Blueberries protect nerve endings in the brain from oxidization and therefore stop the degradation of some parts of the brain.
Blood Sugar and Diabetes
It may be surprising to you that blueberries are beneficial in regulating blood sugar; after all, they’re quite sweet. However, studies have shown that daily consumption of blueberries definitely helps regulate blood sugar levels. The high fiber level of blueberries counteracts their sweetness.

Having discussed all the anti-inflammation and antioxidant benefits of blueberries, it follows that they’re the power-punch to fight arthritis.
Studies on both humans and animals have shown that even a small amount of blueberries improves mobility.

So how much should you eat daily?
Most of the studies mentioned above have used 1-2 cups of blueberries daily for a period of 1-3 months. Other studies have, however, indicated an increase in antioxidant benefits from using up to 3 cups of blueberries per day. That may be too many carbohydrates for those with type 2 diabetes, so just check with your doctor first.
You lose a lot of benefits from blueberries if you cook them. So preferably, you should try to consume them raw or frozen.
Don’t be afraid to consume blueberries even if you’re fighting body fat. The high levels of fiber will counteract the calorie count. Plus 3 whole cups of blueberries only include 245 calories – less than one Snickers bar! And, they’ll boost your energy and mood.
So, there you have it, probably the most powerful disease-fighting food on earth.
Bring Your Cholesterol Down to a Healthy Level Without Drugs -These Heart-Health Exercises Are Twice as Effective as Drugs
Heart attacks and strokes are caused by blocked blood flow in the heart and up to the brain.
To prevent this and improve cardiovascular health, doctors recommend a change in diet, exercise and then of course drugs (lots of drugs).
But there is a different, more natural method of treating heart disease. One so easy and effortless, it’s almost like doing nothing.
And now, a new study from Columbia University Irving Medical Center, published in the Journal of Nuclear Cardiology has proven this easy method TWICE as effective as drugs.
Relaxation has been found to be an effective way of improving blood flow, so researchers decided to test whether transcendental meditation could be a useful addition to coronary heart disease treatment.
They divided them into four groups:
– The first received treatment with exercise and healthy eating,
– the second received transcendental meditation,
– the third received meditation with exercise and diet,
– and the fourth received conventional drug treatment.
The blood flow to and from the hearts of the people in the transcendental meditation/cardiac rehabilitation group improved by 20.7 percent and the transcendental meditation group improved by 12.8 percent.
Exercise and diet treatment increased it by 5.8 percent, and with drugs 10.3 percent.
Why is this relaxation technique so effective?
Psychosocial stress worsens coronary disease. But decreased stress leads to decreased hormones, and therefore a drop in blood vessel inflammation. Hence, why transcendental meditation helps with the fight against cholesterol.

Bring Your Cholesterol Down to a Healthy Level Without Drugs – To Lower Cholesterol and Blood Sugar Bake This Way
But a recent study published in the IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science has found a way to eat your cake and lower your cholesterol and blood sugar as well.
And it’s all about how you mix your flour before baking.
Flour doesn’t have to consist of pure carbohydrates or starches. If you are gluten intolerant, or especially both vegan and gluten intolerant, you’ve probably already played around with nut and bean flours.
While this may sound alien to many of you, flour made from almonds, black beans, broad beans, chestnuts, chickpeas, hazelnuts, pinto beans, quinoa, soy, and white beans are commercially available from health shops. While the nut variety might be expensive, bean flour is pretty cheap.
Researchers wanted to know whether composite flour made from starch and beans was more heart healthy than one made purely from starches.
They recruited 39 subjects who were grouped according to age (15-26, 27-38, and 39-50).
They first put them on a steamed rice diet for four days that required them to eat 100 grams of white rice for breakfast every morning.
The next diet was a composite flour one for 16 days that required them to have 100 grams of steamed rice made from cassava roots and mung beans.
There was a clear drop in glucose levels when eating the composite rice, suggesting it could be a solution for those who are susceptible to diabetes. And while the total cholesterol remained the same, HDL (good) cholesterol increased while LDL (bad) cholesterol decreased.
Scientists attributed the beneficial effects of the composite rice to arginine, an alpha-amino acid found abundantly in protein-rich foods. Previous studies had found that arginine could lower cholesterol.
If you want to try baking your breads and other baked goodies with composite flour, it is easier to start with bean flours, since they have no strong taste and add a nice buttery texture.
Here are some ideas:
For flat doughs like pizza, use 30-35 percent bean flour mixed with 65-70 percent wheat flour.
For bread, use 20-25 percent bean flour.
For batter when baking or frying, use 50 percent bean flour.
Use it as a soup thickener and creamer.
