Awareness Wednesday time! Ahh... You've gotta love the sight of a Family Farm. Wait, what?! Did you know that 98% of all feed lot operations meet the USDA's requirements for being labeled a Family Farm?! If that's not a load of crap - there is definitely one in this first picture. Did you also know that 75% of all beef comes from feed lots like these? It's ok though, this is totally a natural way to raise animals. At least that's what the package says, so you know it's good.

Hello, beets! Prepared myself a plate of baked beets with a little olive oil, garlic, and salt. There have been many studies showing positive effects of beets in some concentrated form on blood pressure, endothelial function, heart health, improved blood flow to the brain, and even endurance performance. For example, drinking beetroot juice prior to exercise makes brains of older adults perform more efficiently and similar to a younger brain. The study included people over the age of 55 with high blood pressure that took a beetroot juice containing 560 mg of nitrate or placebo three times a week for six weeks. Beets are one of the highest sources of nitrate which gets converted into nitric oxide and is thought to increase blood flow to the brain. Beets are also high in vitamin C, which prevents the conversion of nitrates into nitrosamines (those carcinogens that are formed from the nitrites which are used as preservatives). Just to share a couple of anecdotes...my mother was diagnosed with high blood pressure (after multiple visits) and her physician wanted to get her on blood pressure meds. She opted to wait and see what I said (thank you, mom). I got her some organic beet extract powder to use once or twice a day. She used 9 grams a day for two weeks and went back to get her blood pressure measured again. Her blood pressure was completely normal and now she does not need the blood pressure meds! After this, I ordered some for my mother-in-law who was also diagnosed with high blood pressure. The same thing happened to her...her blood pressure is normal! While this is not a clinical trial, I'm pretty happy that the beetroot extract seemed to help lower blood pressure in two people that I care about deeply. The product I got for them was by Activz (no affiliation). #beets #bloodpressure #brainhealth

Cucumber water has been shown to help reduce high #bloodpressure — a major risk factor for heart disease — by helping the kidneys to get rid of extra sodium in the body.

Cucumbers are incredibly rich in #vitaminK, which helps to form the bones matrix and keeps the bone dense and strong.

Dehydration can cause digestive problems, make circulation more sluggish and even promote weight gain, since many people eat when they actually are #thirsty. The National Institute of Health, however, recommends between 6 and 8 glasses a day for best health: #cucumber water, being delicious, makes getting enough water in your system a lot easier to do.

It is rich in #antioxidants and compounds such as cucurbitacins and lignans which have been shown in clinical studies to help the body fend off cancer development.
Cucumbers, however, are a rich source nutrients like vitamins A and C and manganese to make up for deficiencies in our diet.

#Cucumberwater can help detoxify our bodies due to its high water and high fiber content, which make it easier for the body to eliminate harmful chemicals every time we go to the bathroom.

Sun exposure, cold or hot weather and air pollution can all take its toll on your skin, leaving it dry, red and itchy. However, cucumber water can help. When you drink it, you help to not only #hydrate your skin from within, you also provide silicon and vitamin B-5, two nutrients your skin needs to stay healthy. When you use it as a toner, you can help reduce inflammation and irritation and keep your #skin smooth and clear. #uglybynature

Hemp seeds are approved by Dr.Sebi and I use hemp protein.

Hemp seeds contain ALL of the essential amino acids! This makes them an excellent plant-source of #protein and they won’t give you the same bloating and/or gas that sometimes comes with eating whey protein. For vegans, vegetarians, paleo-dieters and really for anyone, hemp seeds are a superior form of protein. Hemp seeds have the most concentrated balance of enzymes, fatty acids and vitamins of any seed.
Hemp seeds are a rich source of essential fatty acids, they contain more of these fatty acids than any fish and most fish oil supplements. Essential fatty acids are important for battling inflammation, improving brain health and function, lowering #bloodpressure and cholesterol, reducing risk of #heartdisease and also maintaining high energy levels.
Hemp seeds are one of the only natural sources of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which has been shown to be beneficial for #hair, #skin and #nails.
GLA is also important for proper hormone health. Many women who suffer from extreme PMS symptoms have reported relief when supplementing with #hempseed oil.
Their fatty acids make them great for heart and #cardiovascular health. Studies have shown them potentially beneficial to those with heart disease.

#Hemp seeds have been shown to help suppress appetite and combat sugar cravings.
According to LeafScience.com hemp seeds have been found to have all the following properties: - Antiemetic (antinausea) - -- Anticonvulsant - Antipsychotic - Antioxidant Anti-tumor/cancer - Antidepressant #uglybynature

The peel contains the highest amount of nutrients and is abundant in phytochemicals and flavonoids such as polymethoxyflavones (PMFs) and hesperidin, that work to give oranges its health perks.
Flavonoids are antioxidant compounds that are within #herbs, #vegetables, #spices and some fruits. They are well known to be effective in preventing cancer and #heartdisease. The peel has more nutrients, for example, orange flesh may have 71 mg of vitamin C, but 3.5 ounces of orange peel contains 136 mg of #vitaminC.
Orange peels also contain folate, vitamin A, B vitamins, dietary fiber, magnesium, copper and calcium. The bitter taste of the peel comes from the flavonoids that the peel has.
In middle-aged, overweight men, consuming hesperidin in oranges was found to significantly lower diastolic #bloodpressure (DBP) after four weeks. The polymethoxylated flavones (PMFs) in orange peels have shown to lower cholesterol better than prescription drugs, without the risk of any side effects.

The study's lead author, Elzbieta Kurowska, Ph.D., vice president of research at KGK Synergize in Ontario, Canada, told EurekAlert: "Our study has shown that PMFs have the most potent cholesterol-lowering effect of any other citrus flavonoid … We believe that PMFs have the potential to rival and even beat the cholesterol-lowering effect of some prescription drugs, without the risk of side effects.” The flavonoids in orange peel have the potential to inhibit the RLIP76 protein, which is linked to cancer and obesity.
According to research published in the journal BioMed Research International: "Due to their broad range of pharmacological properties, citrus flavonoids have gained increased attention. Accumulative in vitro and in vivo studies indicate protective effects of polymethoxyflavones (PMFs) against the occurrence of #cancer." Compounds in #orange peels and other #citrus peel may prevent histamine release (histamines are the chemicals that cause allergic reactions), making them a potentially anti-allergic food. #uglybynature

I will always put more effort in before leaving this great opportunity I was shown. Walk away? NO WAY.

I was at the market and bought some powerful moringa powder. I'm on day two of trying this magical healing herb.
I feel lighter, energized and surprisingly fuller longer. I added a table spoon in my smoothies. I could only do smoothies in the summer.
Check out these amazing benefits. I'm so happy. ❤️❤️❤️ #moringa #mentalclarity #bloodsugar #appetitesuppressant #improveswoundhealing #detoxification #antiulcer #eliminatesconstipation #improvesdigestion #pregnancyhealth #nursingmothers #antitumor #reduceswrinkles #finelines #antifungal #aphrodisiac #increasedlibido #immunitybooster #antidepressant #bloodpressure #visionimprovement #increasedenergy #endurance #anticholesterol #skinhealth #hairgrowth #uti #antiinflammatory #antioxidants #khristinebognot

#execrise#bloodpressure Repost from @hypertensionstudy using @RepostRegramApp - #Exercise is one of the keys to lower your #BloodPressure. Working out also boosts the effectiveness of blood pressure medication if you're already being treated for #Hypertension. Find activities you enjoy, and aim for 30 minutes a day of "exercise" on most days of the week. Dancing, yoga, hiking, gardening, and anything else that gets your #Heart beating a bit faster. Since you're going to be making it a habit, pick things you'll want to do often!

Had no idea about this! Interesting huh?! 💦

Happiness doesn't start with a degree, a job or money. It starts with your thoughts and what you tell yourself every day , Stop stressing over things you can't control or change. Overthinking leads to negative thoughts. Be grateful and focus on the positive.

Most people have heard of the health benefits of vitamin C, vitamin E and calcium. However, there are many compounds that may improve our health that have only recently been discovered. One of these compounds is a flavonoid called quercetin that appears to protect the cardiovascular system by helping to maintain healthy cholesterol and blood pressure within normal ranges while also protecting muscles from oxidation.
So, what is this flavonoid and how can you get more of it in your diet?

I've had a few PM's asking if i'm ok and i'm here to say I am! Thank you for your messages, I appreciate it. I've been feeling off for the past 2 weeks and this week i've slowly been feeling worse. I've just had some blood tests taken and I need to keep an eye out for my blood pressure but otherwise I have to sit tight and just wait to see what my body does and why it isn't too happy at the moment.
