Friday, 17 July 2009

It's good to have milk or fruit or vegetables in your plate every day, because it contains good nutrition for your body. But new research reveals some foods with extraordinary nutritions for your meal. Forget about a dozen of tablets nutrition, a thousand brand of multivitamin that can be found in every supermarket..As our nature already provides our needs with it's own way..and a solution for our health without a negotiation in the end..

This petite fruit contains 70 milligrams of vitamin C, and just 5 milligrams short of the daily recommendation for women. Research links that Vitamin C can improve eyesight, lower cancer risks, and better heart health. A high supply of vitamin C also can make wrinkles less noticeable (according to Melina Jampolis, MD, a San Francisco–based physician who specializes in nutrition and is the author of The Busy Person’s Guide to Permanent Weight Loss).

Plus: Kiwifruit contains 20% more potassium than banana and is one of few fruits (also vegetables) that contains Vitamin E in it.

While broccoli contains super antioxidants, then mushrooms contains tons of phytochemicals, natural sources that may help prevent cancer. Just grab whatever variety (eatable of course, not the poison one) suits you, as all of them has a healthy package.
But the researchers found that crimini (small and brown mushrooms) and portobello, contains high of antioxidants as string beans, red bell papers and carrots.

Plus: Eating mushrooms capables of giving our body a stronger immune response and reduced inflammation.

Raspberries are the main source of ellagitannins, a type of antioxidant that have anticancer effect. This fruit also contains Vitamin K, which helps increase bone mineral density, reducing risk of fractures.

Plus: a cup of raspberries has 8 grams of fiber, a great sources for women to give protection against colon cancer and fullfill our 25 grams of fiber a day. It also helps preventing digestive disorder, and heart disease (according Kerry Neville, RD, a spokewoman for American Dietetic Association).

Almond are thought to help lower high cholesterol. But walnuts are full of Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA), the plant based omega 3 fat that not only help prevent heart disease but also boost up brain function, memory, and mood. It is said, that 14 shelled walnuts halves, provides 2.5 grams of omega 3s.

Plus: A Loma Linda University study found that the omega 3s in walnuts may lower cholesterol more effectively than those found in salmon.

Red Beans
The phytochemicals that found in most beans are believed to protect against cancer and heart disease, and red beans have the highest amounts. Red beans also have three times antioxidants of black beans.

Plus: Red beans are good source of iron, folate especially for women at childbearing age and weight controlling fiber.

Swiss Chard
“It’s a fabulous brain food, helpful in fighting Alzheimer’s and improving mental function,” Dr. Jampolis says. A Tufts University study found a strong connection between a higher intake of B-vitamin-rich foods—like chard—and decreased risk of cognitive decline. Swiss chard is also a good source of vitamin E and folate, nutrients believed to protect the brain.

Plus: Swiss chard is rich in lutein, a caratenoid that helps protect against age related macular degeneration.

Sardines---riches of omega 3s, are more sustainable choice than salmon, which is also low in mercury.

Plus: Sardines are great source of Vitamin D, a key nutrient that experts say most of us lack in sufficient amounts. Getting more Vitamin D, may boost your mood, lower risks of heart disease and cancer, and support immune system.

One cup of watermelon serves more than twice the lycopene (a pigment that may reduce risk of heart disease and ovarian and cervicals cancer) of tomatoes about 7.8 milligrams.

Plus: Watermelon offers healthy amounts of vitamins A and C, and it just has 40 calories per cup.

Plus: An ounce serves up 150 milligrams of immune system and bone strengthening magnesium, about half of your daily requirement.


My memorial for Michael Jackson

Born in Gary, Indiana, United State, August 25, 1958. Hahaha...and i always admiring his "moonwalk" dance.
I did not realize i already became a fans of Michael Jackson since i was a kid, untill i heard his latest news, his death. When i read the news on one of website, it is like there's a huge rock hit my head. I did not believe it, i did not want to believe it actually. But then, many news and chitchats and confirmation of his death. Sad...and dissappointed. But i still hope that there would be a miracle that all the spread news are totally wrong. And then, I watched The Funeral: Michael Jackson that showed in all television, there's no excuse for denying it anymore. No excuse...My greatest admiration for him as the greatest..greatest entertainer in world, just give him a stage, and put himself on it, ask MJ to dance, and you couldn't turn your head but pointed to his dance. He is just great and jenius and being blessed with astonishing voice. He is my favourite singer...
This page i dedicated to him, Michael Joseph Jackson.
And one more thing left......
Never forget him :D

One day in your life
You’ll remember the love you found here
You’ll remember me somehow
Though you don’t need me now
I will stay in your heart
And when things fall apart
You’ll remember one day…

One day in your life
When you find that you’re always longing
for the love we used to share
Just call my name
And I’ll be there

(One day in Your Life)
