Benefits
  • Bone Protection

    French researchers found that a flavanoid called phloridzin that is found only in apples may protect post-menopausal women from osteoporosis and may also increase bone density. Boron, another ingredient in apples, also strengthens bones.

    The high content of vitamin K is essential in anchoring calcium in bones, making it important to bone health.

  • Alzheimer's Prevention

    A study on mice at Cornell University found that the quercetin in apples may protect brain cells from the kind of free radical damage that may lead to Alzheimer's disease.

  • Asthma Help

    One recent study shows that children with asthma who drank apple juice on a daily basis suffered from less wheezing than children who drank apple juice only once per month. Another study showed that children born to women who eat a lot of apples during pregnancy have lower rates of asthma than children whose mothers ate few apples.

  • Breast Cancer Prevention

    A Cornell University study found that rats who ate one apple per day reduced their risk of breast cancer by 17 percent. Rats fed three apples per day reduced their risk by 39 percent and those fed six apples per day reduced their risk by 44 percent.

  • Colon Cancer Prevention

    One study found that rats fed an extract from apple skins had a 43 percent lower risk of colon cancer. Other research shows that the pectin in apples reduces the risk of colon cancer and helps maintain a healthy digestive tract.

  • Liver Cancer Prevention

    Research found that rats fed an extract from apple skins had a 57 percent lower risk of liver cancer.

  • Digestion

    Apples contain a natural laxative. When juiced, it helps aid bowel movements. It is most effective when mixed with carrots and spinach juices, you can expect bowel movement the next day. Regularly eating apples also will ensure bowel movements due to its gel-forming fiber, pectin. It improves the intestinal muscle's ability to push waste through the gastrointestinal tract.

    The high fiber content in spinach makes it a remarkable intestinal tract scrubber. It cleans out the system by removing the accumulated wastes in the digestive tracts by its mildly laxative effect. More importantly, it also repairs, heals and nourishes the tracts and tones up their functions. An excellent help for constipation, colitis, poor digestion or stomach ulcers.

  • Improved Complexion

    The silica in cucumber is an essential component of healthy connective tissue, which includes intracellular cement, muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and bone.

    The high grade content of iron in spinach makes it a great blood builder. It regenerates and reactivates the red blood cells and supplies fresh oxygen to the body.

  • Lower Blood Pressure

    When people who participated in the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) Study added foods high in potassium, magnesium and fiber, their blood pressure dropped to healthier levels. Those people in the study who ate a diet rich in these compounds in addition to the other foods on this diet (low fat dairy foods, seafood, lean meat and poultry) lowered their blood pressure by 5.5 points (systolic) over 3.0 points (diastolic).

    A recent study also shows that certain protein compounds in spinach are beneficial in lowering high blood pressure.

  • Lower Cholesterol

    The pectin in apples lowers LDL ("bad") cholesterol. People who eat two apples per day may lower their cholesterol by as much as 16 percent.

  • Lung Cancer Prevention

    According to a study of 10,000 people, those who ate the most apples had a 50 percent lower risk of developing lung cancer. Researchers believe this is due to the high levels of the flavonoids quercetin and naringin in apples.

  • Reduce Inflammation

  • Cancer Prevention

    The fine chlorophyll and carotene (lutein) found in spinach is beneficial in fighting and preventing cancer. A variety of flavonoid compounds found in this vegetable are powerful anti-oxidants and anti-cancer agents. Studies have shown that properties in spinach slows down cancerous cell division, especially in cancers of the breast, cervical, prostate, stomach, and skin.

  • Macular Degeneration Prevention

    The abundance content of vitamin A and carotenoids help prevent age-related eye problems. When combined with endive and carrot juice, it effectively helps prevent macular degeneration, night blindness, and the development of cataracts.

  • Depression

    Spinach is a great source of Manganese & Magnesium. Manganese and magnesium are two powerful allies in your depression-healing lifestyle. Manganese helps synthesize the fatty acids necessary for a healthy nervous system and is also involved with the synthesis of B vitamins, amino acid formation and the prevention of mood swings due to low blood sugar. Magnesium is crucial in helping manufacture the enzymes that support brain metabolism. In a study, the National Institute of Health found that a deficiency in magnesium reduces levels of mood-calming serotonin. Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that your brain converts to soothing serotonin. Tryptophan also helps you get that good night’s sleep that is so essential to controlling depression because the serotonin that tryptophan produces is itself converted into melatonin, the sleep-inducing hormone.
