    Sweet Potatoes

    Sweet potatoes, especially the deeper-colored ones, are extremely rich in carotene (precursor of vitamin A). They are also an excellent source of vitamins C, B2, B6, E and biotin (B7).

    Immune System: Regular consumption of sweet potatoes strengthens the body's immune system and develop resistance to infection.

    Heart diseases: Consumption of this high potassium root helps to prevent heart attack and stroke. It helps maintain fluid and electrolyte balance in the body cells, as well as normal heart function and blood pressure.



    Muscle Cramps: A deficiency in potassium can cause muscular cramps and greater susceptibility to injury. Make sweet potatoes a regular part of your diet if you exercise a lot, both for an energy boost and to prevent cramps and injuries.

    Betel Nut (Pakku)

    The betel nut, which is actually a fruit from the betel palm, can be found in Asia and Africa. Chewed either dried or ripe, the betel nut was most commonly used as a recreational drug that has euphoric and stimulant effects. Many who use this psychoactive drug feel that it has healing powers for myriad ailments.

    Betel nuts have been used over the centuries to treat different types of mental illness. Modern health care professionals tested its use on schizophrenics. Results have shown that betel nuts can help soothe manic thoughts or behavior, and have helped in the treatment of schizophrenia. Side effects such as stiff limbs and tremors, however, have stopped researchers short of endorsing it.

    Betel nut extract may be beneficial for stroke recovery and Improvements have been noted in speech, bladder control and muscle strength in patients taking betel nut extract.

    Capsicums

    Capsicums are known to lower the fat stored in blood corpuscles, called triglycerides, and thus help in burning calories. This can vastly improve the body metabolism. Moreover, this vegetable is considered beneficial in weight loss as it is low in fat and carbohydrates.

    Rich in vitamins, capsicum helps in strengthening the immune system by making available vitamin A and C in the body. Vitamin B and folate have been used in the treatment of depression and stress related conditions. Lycopene, another important compound found abundantly in capsicums, reduces the risk of prostate, cervical and ovarian cancer.

    Capsicums promote cardiac health by lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels. It has anti-inflammatory properties, stimulates stomach secretions and improves digestion.

    Strawberries

    Manganese is also great for the bones, helping in bone building and maintaining proper bone structure. The potassium, vitamin K, and magnesium in strawberries are also important for bone health.

    One cup of strawberries contains an incredible 13.6% of the RDA of vitamin C, an effective antioxidant that can help lower blood pressure, ensure a healthy immune system, and ward off the development of age-related ocular diseases, such as cataracts and muscular degeneration.

    The combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents found in strawberries is well-known to fight against the onset of many different forms of cancer. Thanks to the vitamin C, folate, and the flavonoids quercetin and kaempferol that they also contain, strawberries are a delicious defense against potentially cancerous cells.

    Eggplant

    Eggplant contains a high amount of water and similarly, aside from fat and bone, our bodies are composed of almost primarily water. Water has important roles in a variety of pathways through the body, but has been found to be especially important in the maintenance of healthy skin and hair.

    Individuals who are dehydrated are more likely to exhibit hair that is thin, dry and has split ends, along with skin that appears to be flaky, dry, with a greater number of lines and wrinkles. Consuming adequate amount of water through either water itself or through food items such as eggplant can not only improve the quality of your hair and skin, but also the general performance of your body.

    For best results, eat the eggplant raw–research has found that cooking it removes some of the water that is so beneficial.

    10 Reasons Why You Should Drink Warm Lemon Water in the Morning.

    Instead of getting a cup of coffee, why not replace it with a warm water lemon drink!? Below are the good factors to consider.

    1. Boosts your immune system: Lemons are high in vitamin C, which is great for fighting colds. They’re high in potassium, which stimulates brain and nerve function. Potassium also helps control blood pressure.

    2. Balances pH: Drink lemon water everyday and you’ll reduce your body’s overall acidity. Lemon is one of the most alkaline foods around. Yes, lemon has citric acid but it does not create acidity in the body once metabolized.

    3. Helps with weight loss: Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which helps fight hunger cravings. It also has been shown that people who maintain a more alkaline diet lose weight faster.

    4. Aids digestion: Lemon juice helps flush out unwanted materials. It encourages the liver to produce bile which is an acid that required for digestion. Efficient digestion reduces heartburn and constipation.

    5. Is a diuretic: Lemons increase the rate of urination in the body, which helps purify it. Toxins are, therefore, released at a faster rate which helps keep your urinary tract healthy.

    6. Clears skin: The vitamin C component helps decrease wrinkles and blemishes. Lemon water purges toxins from the blood which helps keep skin clear as well. It can actually be applied directly to scars to help reduce their appearance.

    7. Freshens breath: Not only this, but it can help relieve tooth pain and gingivitis. The citric acid can erode tooth enamel, so you should monitor this.

    8. Relieves respiratory problems: Warm lemon water helps get rid of chest infections and halt those pesky coughs. It’s thought to be helpful to people with asthma and allergies too.

    9. Keeps you zen: Vitamin C is one of the first things depleted when you subject your mind and body to stress. As mentioned previously, lemons are chock full of vitamin C.

    10. Helps kick the coffee habit: After taking a glass of warm lemon water, most people suggests of less craving for coffee in the morning.

    Why it has to be warm water not cold? Cold water likely provides a shock or stress factor to the body. It takes energy for your body to process cold water.

    Black pepper either in powdered form or mixed with vegetables, it can cure headache. Black pepper contains capsaicin and it can increase the threshold level for headache. It also encourages our bodies to sweat and get rid of harmful toxins.

    Another amazing health benefit of Black Pepper is, that it's a handy spice to have in the kitchen for when you cut yourself. The next time you have a minor cut, sprinkle Black Pepper on it. It will help stop the bleeding. Plus, it's antibacterial properties will promote healing and kill germs.

    Black Pepper can also helps to prevent the formation of intestinal gas and reduce stomach upset.
