    Health Tip of the Day!!-c8e1bb8db2b635a0.jpg

    Dried Peaches - Red-pigmented beta-carotene is a powerful member of the antioxidant family. Visible in the vibrant orange color of Dried peaches, beta-carotene is transformed to vitamin A in the body.

    Vitamin A plays a crucial role in maintaining the skin, internally and externally, as well as in protecting the eyes, building strong teeth and bones and healthy hair. Additionally, research indicates that vitamin A has been linked to reduced rates of cancer and heart disease. Just one serving of peaches contains six percent of the U.S. RDA for vitamins.

    Vitamin C boosts the immune system, promotes healing and helps prevent cancer, heart disease and stroke. This aggressive antioxidant is essential to optimum health and peaches can help. One half-cup serving of canned peaches contains eight percent of the U.S. RDA.

    Research indicates that vitamin E is particularly effective in preventing heart disease and breast cancer. While vitamin E is primarily found in vegetable oils, nuts, seeds and wheat germ, peaches contain a significant amount.

    Dried Peaches offer a source of carbohydrates, protein, dietary fiber, vitamin C and vitamin A. This nutritious fruit also contains boron, known to boost estrogen levels in postmenopausal women, stimulate the brain, and aid in prevention of osteoporosis.

    Health Tip of the Day!!-natural-dried-cherries.jpg

    Dried Cherries - Cherries are rich in Vitamin C, A--beta carotene--and such minerals as calcium, iron, phosphorous, potassium and zinc, among others. Nutrient levels of dried cherries are about as high as fresh, and their natural sugars can provide a swift burst of energy. Though higher than in sweet cherries, the nutrient levels of tart cherries diminish slightly in processing.

    Dried cherries are low in saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, and calories, and they contain almost 20 different antioxidants.

    Dried Cherries have higher disease-fighting antioxidants than most other fruits--and 19 times more beta carotene than blueberries and strawberries. Cherries contain a flavonoid--quercetin--which can help prevent heart disease, and a phenolic acid--amygdalin--shown to reduce tumor size and pain of the cancerous process. Cherries' anthocyanins help generate antioxidant cell protection and repair, ease pain from arthritis and gout, and lower blood cholesterol.

    According to Studies, the flavonoids also reduce the risk of pre-diabetes syndrome. Melatonin found in cherries help regulate natural sleep patterns, prevent memory loss, delay the aging process--and perhaps even ease jet lag. A recent study revealed a diet that included the consumption cherries lowered body weight, especially "belly" fat.

    Health Tip of the Day!!-14181071-cereal-grains-rye-yields-crops-agriculture.jpg

    Rye / புல்லரிசி - It is very essential for post-menopausal women, with high cholesterol levels, high BP and similar other signs of cardio-vascular disease, to consume whole grains like rye at least six times per week. This helps to slow down the progression of atherosclerosis and inhibits the formation of plaques in the blood vessels.

    Whole grains and high fiber cereals like rye are highly effective in fighting against postmenopausal breast cancer.

    The dietary fiber present in rye benefits the human body in a number of ways. One major property of the fiber is that it binds to toxins in the colon and helps to remove them from the body.

    The fiber also binds to cancer-causing chemicals or toxins in the colon, aiding in their elimination and protecting the cells of the colon from damage. This way, rye helps in the prevention of colon cancer.

    The high fiber content present in rye helps to prevent high blood sugar levels in diabetic patients and thus, helps with blood sugar control.

    Rye is a rich source of magnesium, which acts as a co-factor in a number of enzymatic actions. One major enzymatic reaction in which magnesium is involved in is the body’s utilization of glucose and insulin secretion. By this process, rye helps to lower down the risk of type II Diabetes Mellitus.

    Consumption of rye also helps in the prevention of gallstones.

    The fiber present in rye is rich in non-cellulose polysaccharides, with high water binding capacities, leading to a quick sensation of fullness and satiety. This way, rye promotes weight-loss and prevents obesity.

    People experiencing wheat-related conditions like gluten-sensitive enteropathies or celiac sprue should consult a health practitioner before experimenting with gluten grains like rye.

    Health Tip of the Day!!-bulgur.jpg

    Bulgur (Cracked Wheat) - If you eat just 1 cup of cooked bulgur, you’ll get 33.8 grams of carbohydrates. That’s 26 percent of the recommended intake of 130 grams daily. In addition to energy-providing carbohydrates, the same portion has 8 grams of fiber. Bulgur contains some soluble fiber, but about 90 percent of the wheat kernel consists of insoluble fiber.

    This is the type of fiber that keeps food moving through your digestive tract and prevents constipation. A 1-cup serving of bulgur gives men 21 percent and women 32 percent of their daily intake. If you’re not used to eating that much fiber in one serving, increase the amount gradually to avoid side effects such as gas, bloating and diarrhea.

    The body retains most of its iron, but you still need to get enough in your diet to replace the amount normally lost. For women, that means getting 18 milligrams daily, but men only need 8 milligrams. Even though it’s best known for carrying oxygen in the blood stream, iron is actually a part of every cell in your body. It’s an essential component of enzymes and proteins, it helps form the collagen that supports your skin and muscles and it supports the immune system. Just 1 cup of cooked bulgur has 1.75 milligrams of iron, which is 22 percent of men’s and 10 percent of women’s recommended daily intake.

    The B vitamins all work as coenzymes, which means they activate enzymes that have various roles, including metabolizing food into energy and producing hormones and neurotransmitters. The vitamins each have other specialized jobs to perform too. For example, vitamin B-6 and folate remove an amino acid called homocysteine from the blood stream. If you don't have enough B-6 and folate, levels of homocysteine can build up, which is a risk factor for developing cardiovascular disease. You’ll get 8 to 12 percent of the recommended daily intake of thiamin, niacin, folate and vitamin B-6 in a 1-cup serving of bulgur.
