Healing Foods

As I’ve researched, according to folklore, these foods are good for you. Now some scientists agree.

Cranberry Juice is good for urinary-tract infections. The juice inhibits a type of bacteria that clings to the wall of the bladder and causes infection.

Carrots are good for your eyes. Carrots and some other fruits and vegetables contain beta-carotene, which can reduce the chance of eye disease. One carrot a day can help prevent mascular degeneration, which eventually leads to blindness.

Chicken Soup fights congestion that comes with a cold. Chicken has amino acid that thins the mucous lining of the sinuses, relieving stuffiness.

Garlic and Onions can kill flu and cold viruses.

Fish is good for your brain. The mineral zinc is found in fish and shellfish. Studies show that even a small deficiency of zinc impairs thinking and memory.

Blueberries fight the bacteria that causes diarrhea.

are a natural antacid. They soothe heartburn.

Spinach is good for your spirits. It contains lots of folic. If your body doesn’t have enough folic acid, you may feel depressed.

Eat Onions to fight insomnia. Onions contain a mild natural sedative called quercetin that will help you fall asleep.
