TOP 14 ANTI-CANCER SUPER FRUITS

Many types of cancer are induced by the food we eat. Cancer can also be prevented or helped by adding super fruits to our diet. Here are the Top 14 best anti-cancer super fruits and why they are so good for you: >BLUEBERRIES Researchers have shown blueberries contain pterostilbene, anthocyanins, proanthocyanidins, resveratrol, flavonols, and tannins, which inhibit mechanisms of cancer cell development. Besides this, blueberry can also alleviate the effects of Alzheimer’s disease, prevent urinary tract infections, and reduce blood sugar.

GRAPES
A grape is a perennial and deciduous woody vine. Its berries can be eaten raw or be made into juice, jam, jelly, wine, raisins, and others. Grapes are found in almost all parts of the world. Grapes contain phytochemicals such as resveratrol which has been positively implicated to inhibit any type of cancer.

DRAGON FRUIT
Dragonfruit is rich in phytoalbumin antioxidants which help carcinogenic free-radical formation in the body. It is also rich in fiber, calcium, phosphorus, and vitamins C and B2, as well as its helps excrete metal toxins from the body.

CITRUS FRUITS
Citrus fruits include orange, lemon, grapefruit, etc. This kind of fruits contains a large number of bioflavonoids, which can enhance the activity of certain enzymes in human skin, lung, stomach and liver, and change the fat-soluble carcinogenic substance into water-soluble, so as to make them not easy to be absorbed and can be expelled out of the body. At the same time, they can enhance the absorptive capacity of vitamin C by the human body. Vitamin C is an important cancer substance, which can enhance human immunity, prevent the formation of nitrosamines–a strong carcinogen. What’s more, it also has certain effect in the prevention and treatment of gastrointestinal cancer.

A study published a few years ago in the journal Nutrition and Cancer, for instance, found that people who consume the highest amounts of flavonoids and proanthocyanidins, a subgroup of flavonoids, were 44 percent less likely to develop oral cancer, 40 percent less likely to develop laryngeal cancer, and 30 percent less likely to develop colon cancer compared to others.

AVOCADO
Avocados contain lutein, an anti-cancer carotenoid. Lutein lowers the risk of prostate cancer in men and protects eyes against fatal diseases like macular degeneration and cataracts. Another cancer-fighting component of avocado is glutathione that can significantly cuts the incidence of oral and pharyngeal cancer. Avocados are also rich in potassium, vitamins, and heart-healthy fats.

STRAWBERRIES
Anti cancer action is actually related to the polyphenols contained in the berries, rather than in their antioxidant potential, as is commonly assumed. A diet containing a high proportion of strawberries or raspberries (5% or more of total diet) in animals, has been found to significantly decrease the number of esophageal tumors triggered by NMBA, a known powerful carcinogen. Ellagic acid appears to prevent the activation of carcinogenic substances into cellular toxins, causing them to lose their ability to react with DNA and induce mutations capable of triggering the onset of cancer. In addition, strawberry also contains a kind of amine substance, which has good effect in the prevention of leukemia and other diseases related with blood.

ACAI BERRIES
Laboratory studies have shown that acai berries can kill off cancer cells. Extracts from the berries can induced the death of leukemia cells. Other beneficial contents of acai are its antioxidants (found to be twice than in blueberries), omega fatty acids, protein, vitamins A and C, iron, and fiber.

NONI
According to recent studies, noni has properties that may be beneficial in preventing cancer. The extract from the tropical plant indicates some anti-cancer properties useful for the immune system. Moreover, noni contains carbohydrates, dietary fibers, niacin, calcium, iron and potassium.

GOJI BERRIES
It has been found out that goji berries contain selenium, a trace mineral that acts an antioxidant which can neutralize free radicals that damage cells and cause cancer. Goji berries are also rich in other nutrients and phytochemicals like amino acids, carotenoids like beta-carotene and zeaxanthin, polysaccharides, antioxidants, calcium, potassium, iron, zinx, and riboflavin.

MANGOSTEEN
Mangosteen is anti-cancer and helps cancer prevention.
Various studies have shown that phytoceuticals in Mangosteen (in some cases known to be its xanthones) have properties such as: anti-tumor (shrinks tumors), anti-leukemia, antifungal (critical for all cancer patients), antibacterial (to protect DNA), antioxidants (at least two dozen different kinds of xanthones are in the mangosteen fruit), antiproliferation, kills cancer cells and causes apoptosis (programmed cell death) for some types of cancer. This is a pretty impressive list of cancer credentials!

This fruit has countless health benefits like ant-ulcer, anti-aging, antiviral, antibiotic, antifungal, anti-depressant, anti-obesity, anti-allergenic, anti-cataract, and many more.

Mangosteen also contains: catechins, polyphenols, minerals and vitamins.

SOURSOP
Soursop has anti-cancer characteristics and is best for all types of cancer. The fruit is also anti-stress, anti-bacterial, antifungal, anti-depressant, and anti-worms.

POMEGRANATE
Studies have reported that the fruits contain phytochemicals that can suppress aromatase, an enzyme which converts androgen into estrogen and which is associated with breast cancer. Furthermore, clinical trials have shown the pomegranate extracts can prevent prostate cancer in men.

KIWI
Kiwi contains plenty of vitamins, especially vitamin C, the content of which is 4 to 12 times as that of orange. Through the researches in recent years, it is confirmed that kiwi contains a kind of active ingredient, which can block the formation of carcinogenic “nitrosamines” in the human body. As a result, it has a good effect in preventing cancer.

APPLE
Apple peels contain as many as a dozen cancer-fighting chemical compounds, according to a study conducted by researchers at Cornell University and published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

“We found that several compounds have potent anti-proliferative activities against human liver, colon and breast cancer cells, and may be partially responsible for the anti-cancer activities of whole apples,” said Rui Hai Liu, an associate professor of food science.

The researchers extracted each individual chemical compound found in the peels of 230 pounds of Red Delicious apples. They then tested these compounds individually against cultures of cancer cells in the laboratory. They identified 12 compounds, called triterpenoids, which inhibited the growth of cancer cells or even killed them.

Top 10 Anti-Aging Foods

The general guidelines for the anti-aging diet are: keep your calorie consumption and saturated fat intake down; eat plenty of wholegrain, fresh fruits and vegetables; and cut down on salt and sugar. In addition to these general guidelines, there are specific foods that have a roll in anti-aging and that you should regularly include in your diet.

1. Avocado:
This fruit, which is usually eaten as a vegetable, is a good source of healthy monounsaturated fat that may help to reduce level of a bad type of cholesterol in body. Avocado is a good source of vitamin E and can help to maintain healthy skin and prevent skin aging (vitamin E may also help alleviate menopausal hot flushes). It is rich in potassium which helps prevent fluid retention and high blood pressure.

2. Ginger:
This spicy root can boost the digestive and circulatory systems, which can be useful for older people. Ginger may also help to alleviate rheumatic aches and pains.

3. Cruciferous vegetables:
The family of Cruciferous vegetables includes cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, kale, turnip, brussels sprouts, radish and watercress. Cruciferous vegetables assist the body in its fight against toxins and cancer. You should try to consume at least 115g/40z(of any one or a combination) of these vegetables on a daily basis. If possible, eat them row or very lightly cooked so that the important enzymes remain intact.

4. Whole meal pasta and rice:
Complex carbohydrates provide a consistent supply of energy throughout the day and should make up the bulk of your diet. Wholemeal pasta is an excellent complex carbohydrate. It is high in fibre and contains twice the amount of iron as normal pasta. Brown rice is another recommended complex carbohydrate, which is high in fibre and B vitamins.

5. Soya:
Menopausal women might find that soya helps to maintain oestrogen levels. Soya may alleviate menopausal hot flush and protect against Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis and heart disease. Look out for fermented soya products, which are more easily digested, therefore more nutritional, and do not generally cause food intolerances. You may want to check that soya products have not been genetically modified. Soya should not be confused with soya sauce, which is full of salt and should be used sparingly, if at all.

6. Garlic:
Eating a clove of garlic a day (row or cooked) helps to protect the body against cancer and heart disease. The cardioprotective effects of garlic are well recorded. One 1994 study in Iowa, USA, of 41,837 women between the age of 55 and 69 suggested that women who ate a clove of garlic at least once a week were 50 percent less likely to develop colon cancer. Another study at Tasgore Medical college in India suggested that garlic reduced cholesterol levels and assisted blood thinning more effectively than aspirin, thus helping to reduce the risk of heart disease.

7. Nuts:
Most varieties of nuts are good sources of minerals, particularly walnuts and brazi nuts. Walnuts, although high in calories, are rich in potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper and selenium. Adding nuts to your diet (sprinkle them on salads and desserts) can enhance the functioning of your digestive and immune systems, improve your skin help control prevent cancer. Nuts may also help control cholesterol levels. Never eat rancid nuts, however, as they have been linked to a high incidence of free radicals.

8. Berries:
All black and blue berries such as blackberries, blueberries, blackcurrants and black grapes contain phytochemicals known as flavonoids-powerful antioxidants which help to protect the body against damage caused by free radicals and aging.

9. Water:
Drink at least 8 glasses of water every day in order to remain healthy. Water helps us to get rid of the toxins and unwanted waste materials from your body.
Don’t rely on thirst; this sensation diminishes with age. Drink often and choose from nutritious liquids, including 100% fruit and vegetable juices, skim or low fat milk, broths, sparkling water, and teas. You can also get fluids from foods, especially those that are liquid at room temperature. Try gelatin, frozen yogurt, soups, watermelon, pickles, oranges, lettuce, tomatoes, etc.

10. Watermelon:
Both the flesh and seeds of the watermelon are nutritious so try blending them together in a food processor and drinking as a juice. The flesh contain vitamin A, B and C ; the seeds contain selenium, essential fats, zinc and vitamin E, all of which help against free radical damage and aging.

(ViataVerdeViu) Exista anumite “alimente puternice” pline de antioxidanti care dau forta, protejeaza si ne pregatescantiimbatranirepentru o viata mai lunga si mai sanatoasa, atat exterioara, cat si launtrica.

Exista sapte alimente de top cu puternice proprietati antiimbatranire care sunt facute sa ne imbunatateasca sanatatea si aspectul, in acelasi timp incurajand longevitatea. Ele ar trebui adaugate la arsenalul vostru de instrumente zilnice care promoveaza sanatatea cu scopul de a va mentine aspectul si tonusul fara ca sa conteze cati ani ati strans la centura.

Verdeturi cu frunze si legume crucifere

Auzim intotdeauna expertii in sanatate naturista si pe nutritionisti facand reclama la verdeturile cu frunze cat mai verzi (verde inchis) – si pe buna dreptate. Aceste plante  impresionante, pline de substante nutritive contin acid folic, calciu si alte substante nutritive care sprijina sanatatea oaselor, protejeaza impotriva declinului cerebral si ajuta la prevenirea problemelor oculare datorate varstei inaintate. Si mai semnificativ, aceste verdeturi se mandresc cu puternice proprietati anticancerigene.

Dietele cu multe crucifere precum brocoli ajuta si la reducerea riscului de pierdere a memoriei. Cruciferele si verdeturile precum kale, sfecla mangold, calota cu frunze a sfeclei rosii si spanacul sunt niste adaugiri delicioase la diversele feluri de mancare, inclusiv cele gatite la wok, prajite in tigaie, salatele, tocanele si supele. Dar cel mai bun mod de a le consuma pentru a beneficia in totalitate de calitatile lor este in starea lor cruda, naturala. Nu uitati ca orice procesare, chiar si termica, reduce considerabil cantitatea si calitatea nutrientilor.

Castravetii

Atotprezenti in salatele noastre de cand ne stim, castravetii au efecte foarte puternice antiimbatranire, fiind recunoscuti pentru efectele benefice asupra sanatatii articulatiilor, pielii, ficatului si rinichilor. Sunt de asemenea plini de magneziu si potasiu  in forma ionica si vitamina C, care ii confera un puternic efect alcalinizant in cadrul corporal. In plus, castravetii sunt deosebit de bogati in fluide care hidrateaza pielea, articulatiile si tesuturile.  Citi mai multe despre proprietatile antiimbatranire ale castravetilor in materialul : Efectele antiimbatranire ale castravetilor

Caisele

Aceste mici fructe asemeni piersicilor ar putea parea fragile, dar contin un puternic pachet de nutrienti antiimbatranire. Exteriorul de un portocaliu stralucitor al caiselor provine de la carotenoizi, antioxidanti puternici care ajuta la prevenirea bolilor de inima, reduc colesterolul rau si protejeaza impotriva cancerului. Corpurile noastre convertesc carotenoidul betacaroten in vitamina A, care contribuie la sanatatea ochilor, a pielii, a parului, a gingiilor si a glandelor.

Ani de cercetari au dovedit ca aceste fructe poseda cele mai inalte nivele si cea mai larga varietate de carotenoizi fata de oricare alt aliment. Ele sunt de asemenea excelente pentru regenerarea fluidelor corporale, detoxifierea corpului si potolirea setei (http://blog.everythingantiaging.com).

Fructele de padure

Savantii au descoperit ca fructele de padure au unele dintre cele mai inalte nivele de antioxidanti dintre oricare fructe(nivele masurate ca ORAC – trad. Capacitatea de Absorbtie Radicala a Oxigenului – o metoda de masurare a capacitatii antioxidante a alimentelor). Kale si spanacul sunt singurele vegetale cu valori ORAC la fel de inalte ca fructele proaspete de padure (http://berryhealth.fst.oregonstate.edu). Fructele de padure proaspete sunt de asemenea pline varf de fitochimice si pigmenti colorati numiti antocianine care au fost asociati cu un risc scazut al anumitor cancere, cu sanatatea tractului urinar, cu buna functionare a memoriei si o batranete sanatoasa.

Fructele de padure sunt o buna sursa de quercitina, un flavonoid care actioneaza atat ca un anticancerigen, cat si ca un antioxidant, protejand impotriva cancerului si bolilor de inima. Aceste proprietati antiinflamatorii ale fructelor de padure se crede ca intarzie pierderea functiilor cerebrale, care este adesea asociata cu imbatranirea. Cercetatorii raporteaza ca afinele ar putea chiar ajuta la incetinirea deteriorarii cognitive ce vine odata cu boala Alzheimer. Pentru o lista cuprinzatoare de studii stiintifice care documenteaza proprietatile antiimbatranire ale fructelor de padure, vizitati site-ul:http://berryhealth.fst.oregonstate.edu

Uleiul de masline

Italienii sunt recunoscuti pentru perioada mare de viata si capacitatea de a imbatrani gratios, si nu ar trebui sa existe vreo supriza in legatura cu asta, luand in consideratie faptul ca uleiul de masline este un element important in dieta mediteraneana. Uleiul de masline este plin de grasimile cele mai bune pentru sanatate disponibile sub forma de acizi grasi omega-3. Aceste grasimi necesare nu doar ajuta la o silueta zvelta si o buna sanatate a inimii prin reducerea inflamarii, ele micsoreaza si nivelul colesterolului si imbunatatesc digestia si circulatia sanguina la nivelul pielii. Toti acesti factori duc la un corp mai sanatos si o viata mai lunga.

Rosiile

Daca mancati rosii, veti ajuta astfel la protejarea pielii, potrivit cercetatorilor germani (http://alternativeremedies.boomja.com/index.php?ITEM=115590). Voluntari participanti la un studiu au ingerat o portie zilnica de pasta de rosii amestecata cu ulei virgin de masline sau doar ulei de masline timp de 10 saptamani. Dupa expunerea zilnica la ultraviolete, grupul consumator de rosii a avut cu 40% mai putine arsuri solare decat cei ce au consumat doar ulei de masline. Ingredientul magic din rosii este licopenul, care protejeaza pielea de oxidarea care rezulta de la arsurile solare si duce la riduri. Stropirea rosiilor cu putin ulei sanatos cum este cel de masline va ajuta la o mai buna absorbtie a licopenului.

Migdalele crude

Migdalele sunt pline de vitamina E, greu de obtinut, si doar o mana de migdale ofera jumatate din doza zilnica. Migdalele crude sunt  cea mai sanatoasa forma a acestui sambure, oferind un continut puternic nutritiv intr-o forma pura, neprocesata.

Cand cercetatorii de la cateva prestigioase scoli medicale au privit la impactul diferitelor vitamine si minerale asupra vitezei, coordonarii si echilibrului la oamenii de peste 65 de ani, unica substanta care a facut diferenta a fost vitamina E. Voluntarii cu cele mai slabe performante fizice aveau cele mai scazute nivele de vitamina E, in timp ce aceia care erau cei mai agili dintre participanti aveau cantitati adecvate de vitamina E in corp. Aceasta puternica vitamina ne pastreaza coordonarea miscarilor prin neutralizarea radicalilor liberi atat din muschi, cat si din sistemul nervos

La acestea opt, care sunt destul de usor de gasit pentru oricine este interesat de o viata sanatoasa si de o imbatranire cat mai indepartata, putem sa mai adaugam doua superalimente care desi nu sunt atat de disponibile se pot procura fara prea mare dificultate:

Avocado

Plin pana la refuz cu omega-3 de cea mai inalta calitate, avocado este unul dintre cele mai alcalinizante alimente disponibile. De asemenea au un continut inalt de vitamina E, care este esentiala pentru o piele si un par stralucitor si tinerea la distanta a ridurilor. Faceti o salata de avocado crud sau stropiti un avocado proaspat cu lamaie si sare de mare pentru o gustare cat se poate de hranitoare.

“Periodic Table of VITAMINS”

Moringa Benefits | Moringa Oleifera Benefits

Moringa oleifera’s health benefits have long since been well understood and cherished by the people of Asia and Africa. The Moringa tree’s uses as a health and medicinal plant can be traced back centuries; there are documented references of Moringa oil being placed in the tombs of ancient Egyptians.

In fact, the Moringa tree’s benefits are so significant, it has been called the Tree of Life in many cultures.

What the east has long since known is now being understood by the west, as more and more people in Europe and America begin to explore the benefits of alternative healing.

Because the Moringa tree is rich in nutrients, and because the tree’s various parts can all be used, Moringa’s many benefits vary depending on which part of the plant is being used. The young, immature Moringa oleifera pods are the most valued and widely used of all the tree parts. The pods are extremely nutritious, containing essential amino acids, forming a complete protein source, and many vitamins, minerals, co-enzymes, and antioxidants.

How can Moringa oleifera benefit you?

The possibilities are endless. Here are just a few of the many real benefits people discover when taking Moringa oleifera:

* Increased physical energy – Tune your body up with naturally occurring nutrients to make your energy last longer

* Mental and emotional balance – Moringa oleifera’s amazingly powerful nutrient compounds help restore stability to the chemicals that govern our thoughts and emotions. You have to experience it to appreciate it!

* Faster recovery – Moringa oleifera’s complete amino profile, along with dozens of vitamins and minerals, makes it a perfect recovery food after grueling workouts and physical strain.

* Nutrient-dense mother’s milk – Increased iron, potassium, Vitamins A, B, C, E, and dozens of other important nutrients are all readily absorbed from Moringa oleifera and transferred from mother’s milk to the growing newborn. No wonder Moringa is called ‘Mother’s Best Friend’ in cultures across Africa!

* Healthy blood sugar levels – antioxidants and unique regulating compounds help control blood sugar and keep the blood free of unhealthy substances.

Just a few of the other many benefits of Moringa oleifera include increased flexibility, improved sensory perception, better sleep cycles, decreased depression and anxiety, and improved memory. Moringa has been used to help those with diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, and even cancer.

Highly valued Moringa oil is extracted from the pods, and even the remaining seed cake does not go to waste. The seed cake can be used as a coagulant to clarify dirty and turbid water. It is used as an effective means of removing sediment and bacteria from water, helping to purify and treat water naturally, a useful benefit in areas where industrial water treatment is not available.

Moringa leaves are perhaps equally valuable and provide powerful benefits to anyone who is conscious of their nutrient intake. The leaves of the Moringa tree are among the most protein-dense leaves of any plant species. Moringa leaves also contain high levels of vitamin A comparable to carrots, calcium comparable to milk, and vitamin C comparable to oranges, as well as high amounts of other vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals.

Unlike factory produced synthesized pills, the Moringa leaf is crushed and inserted directly into a capsule, retaining all its nutritive value.

Moringa leaves can be used in food preparation, and also brewed as a tea, either alone or in combination with other teas. Even a small glass of Moringa tea benefits the drinker with a host of nutrients.

It is impossible to list the complete benefits of Moringa, simply because they are too numerous to write out. What is guaranteed is that our Moringa Products are freshly produced and packed to retain their nutrients. They are safe to consume by all ages, and will benefit you and your family for years to come.

The Vitamin component of Moringa Leaves:

Moringa has Vitamin A (Beta Carotene), Vitamin B1 (Thiamine), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Vitamin B6 Pyrodixine), Vitamin B7 (Biotin), Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), Vitamin D (Cholecalciferol), Vitamin E (Tocopherol) and Vitamin K.

Vitamin A (Beta Carotene), Vitamin A is a vitamin which is needed by the retina of the eye in the form of a specific metabolite, the light-absorbing molecule retinal. This molecule is absolutely necessary for both “Scotopic”scotopic and color vision. Vitamin A also functions in a very different role, as an irreversibly oxidized form retinoic acid, which is an important hormone-like growth factor for epithelial and other cells.

Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) helps fuel the body by converting blood sugar into energy. It keeps the mucous membranes healthy and is essential for nervous system, cardiovascular and muscular function.

Vitamin B2
(Riboflavin) is required for a wide variety of cellular processes.   Like the other B vitamins, it plays a key role in energy metabolism, and for the metabolism of fats, ketone bodies, carbohydrates, and proteins.  It is the central component of the cofactors FAD and FMN, and is therefore required by all  “Flavoprotein”flavoproteins.

Vitamin B3 (Niacin), like all B complex vitamins, are necessary for healthy skin, hair, eyes, and liver. They also help the nervous system function properly.  Niacin also helps the body make various sex and stress-related hormones in the adrenal glands and other parts of the body. Niacin is effective in improving circulation and reducing cholesterol levels in the blood.

Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) is required for the synthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine and for myelin formation. Pyridoxine deficiency in adults principally affects the peripheral nerves, skin, mucous membranes, and the blood cell system. In children, the central nervous system (CNS) is also affected. Deficiency can occur in people with uremia, alcoholism, cirrhosis, hyperthyroidism, malabsorption syndromes, congestive heart failure (CHF), and in those taking certain medications.

Vitamin B7
(Biotin) has vital metabolic functions. Without biotin as a co-factor, many enzymes do not work properly, and serious complications can occur, including varied diseases of the skin, intestinal tract, and nervous system. Biotin can help address high blood glucose levels in people with type 2 diabetes, and is helpful in maintaining healthy hair and nails, decreasing insulin resistance and improving glucose tolerance, and possibly preventing birth defects. It plays a role in energy metabolism, and has been used to treat alopecia, cancer, Crohn’s disease, hair loss, Parkinson’s disease, peripheral neuropathy, Rett syndrome, seborrheic dermatitis, and vaginal candidiasis.

Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)is one of the safest and most effective nutrients, experts say. It may not be the cure for the common cold (though it’s thought to help prevent more serious complications). But the benefits of vitamin C may include protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and even skin wrinkling.

Vitamin D (Cholecalciferol)  is essential for promoting calcium absorption in the gut and maintaining adequate serum calcium and phosphate concentrations to enable normal mineralization of bone and prevent hypocalcemic tetany. It is also needed for bone growth and bone remodeling by osteoblasts and osteoclasts . Without sufficient vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle, or misshapen. Vitamin D sufficiency prevents rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. Together with calcium, vitamin D also helps protect older adults from osteoporosis.  Vitamin D has other roles in human health, including modulation of neuromuscular and immune function and reduction of inflammation.

Vitamin E
describes a family of 8 antioxidants, 4 tocopherols and 4 tocotrienols. alpha-tocopherol (a-tocopherol) is the only form of vitamin E that is actively maintained in the human body and is therefore, the form of vitamin E found in the largest quantities in the blood and tissue.  Vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin, protects vitamin A and essential fatty acids from oxidation in the body cells and prevents breakdown of body tissues.

Vitamin K is necessary for normal clotting of blood in humans. Specifically, vitamin K is required for the liver to make factors that are necessary for blood to properly clot (coagulate), including factor II (prothrombin), factor VII (proconvertin), factor IX (thromboplastin component), and factor X (Stuart factor). Other clotting factors that depend on vitamin K are protein C, protein S, and protein Z. Deficiency of vitamin K or disturbances of liver function (for example, severe liver failure) may lead to deficiencies of clotting factors and excess bleeding.

Amino Acids:  The foundation of our body.

Our bodies need twenty different amino acids or proteins that are the building blocks for a healthy body. Nonessential amino acids are those that the body can synthesize for itself, provided there is enough nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen available. Essential amino acids are those supplied by the diet.  They must be consumed as the human body either cannot make them at all or cannot make them in sufficient quantity to meet its needs. ?Of the 20 amino acids required by our bodies, eleven of them are nonessential and nine are essential.

Functions of Amino Acids: Proteins act as enzymes , hormones , and antibodies . They maintain fluid balance and acid and base balance. They also transport substances such as oxygen, vitamins and minerals to target cells throughout the body. Structural proteins, such as collagen and keratin, are responsible for the formation of bones, teeth, hair, and the outer layer of skin and they help maintain the structure of blood vessels and other tissues.
Enzymes are proteins that facilitate chemical reactions without being changed in the process. Hormones (chemical messengers) are proteins that travel to one or more specific target tissues or organs, and many have important regulatory functions. Insulin , for example, plays a key role in regulating the amount of glucose in the blood. The body manufactures antibodies (giant protein molecules), which combat invading antigens. Antigens are usually foreign substances such as bacteria and viruses that have entered the body and could potentially be harmful. Immunoproteins, also called immunoglobulins or antibodies, defend the body from possible attack by these invaders by binding to the antigens and inactivating them.

If these critical components for a healthy body are not provided as part of a healthy diet, the body will look for other sources for them.  This can include breakdown of our organs, leading to chronic problems such as liver and kidney problems, diabetes and heart disease among others.

MORINGA AS FOOD Moringa is considered a complete food as it contains all of the essential Amino Acids required for a healthy body.  The dried leaf is a nutritional powerhouse and contains all of the following Amino Acids.

ISOLEUCINE
builds proteins and enzymes and it provides ingredients used to create other essential biochemical components in the body, some of which promote energy and stimulate the brain to maintain a state of alertness.

LEUCINE
works with isoleucine to build proteins and enzymes which enhance the body’s energy and alertness.

LYSINE ensures your body absorbs the right amount of calcium. It also helps form collagen used in bone cartilage and connective tissues. In addition, lysine aids in the production of antibodies, hormones, and enzymes. Recent studies have shown lysine improves the balance of nutrients that reduce viral growth.

METHIONINE primarily supplies sulfur to your body. It is known to prevent hair,

skin, and nail problems while lowering cholesterol levels as it increases the liver’s production of lecithin. Methionine reduces liver fat and protects the kidneys, which reduces bladder irritation.

PHENYLALAINE produces the chemical needed to transmit signals between nerve cells and the brain. It can help with concentration and alertness, reduce hunger pains and improve memory and mood.

THREONINE is an important part of collagen, elastin, and enamel proteins.  It assists metabolism and helps prevent fat build-up in the liver while boosting the body’s digestive and intestinal tracts.

TRYPTOPHAN supports the immune system, alleviates insomnia, reduces anxiety, depression, and the symptoms of migraine headaches. It also is beneficial in decreasing the risk of artery and heart spasms as it works with lysine to reduce cholesterol levels.

VALINE is important in promoting a sharp mind, coordinated muscles, and a calm mood.

Non-essential amino acids in Moringa

ALANINE is important for energy in muscle tissue, brain, and central nervous system. It strengthens the immune system by producing antibodies. Alanine also helps in the healthy metabolism of sugars and organic acids in the body.
ARGININE causes the release of the growth hormones considered crucial for optimal muscle growth and tissue repair. It also improves immune responses to bacteria, viruses, and tumor cells while promoting the healing of the body’s wounds.

ASPARTIC ACID helps rid the body of ammonia created by cellular waste. When the ammonia enters the circulatory system it can act as a highly toxic substance which can damage the central nervous system. Recent studies have also shown that aspartic acid may decrease fatigue and increase endurance.

CYSTINE functions as an antioxidant and is a powerful aid to the body in protecting against radiation and pollution. It can help slow the aging process, deactivate free radicals, and neutralize toxins. It also aids in protein synthesis and presents cellular change. It is necessary for the formation of new skin cells, which aids in the recovery from burns and surgical operations.

GLUTAMIC ACID is food for the brain. It improves mental capacities, helps speed the healing of ulcers, reduces fatigue, and curbs sugar cravings.

GLYCINE promotes the release of oxygen required in the cell-making process. It is also important in the manufacturing of hormones responsible for a strong immune system.

HISTIDINE is used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, allergies, ulcers, and anemia. A lack of histidine may lead to poor hearing.

SERINE is important in storing glucose in the liver and muscles. Its antibodies help strengthen the body’s immune system. Plus, it synthesizes fatty acid sheaths around nerve fibers.

PROLINE
is extremely important for the proper function of your joints and tendons. It also helps maintain and strengthen heart muscles.

TYROSINE transmits nerve impulses to your brain. It helps overcome depression; improves memory; increases mental alertness; plus promotes the healthy functioning of the thyroid, adrenal, and pituitary glands.
