@Regrann from @ugly_by_nature - Something as easy as adding more #spinach, #kale, #collards and mustard greens to your diet could help slow cognitive decline, according to new research. The study also examined the nutrients responsible for the effect, linking #vitaminK consumption to slower cognitive decline for the first time. "Losing one's memory or cognitive abilities is one of the biggest fears for people as they get older," said Martha Clare Morris, Sc.D., assistant provost for community research at Rush University Medical Center and leader of the research team. "Since declining cognitive ability is central to #Alzheimers disease and dementias, increasing consumption of green leafy vegetables could offer a very simple, affordable and non-invasive way of potentially protecting your brain from Alzheimer's disease and dementia." The researchers tracked the diets and cognitive abilities of more than 950 older adults for an average of five years and saw a significant decrease in the rate of cognitive decline for study participants who consumed greater amounts of green leafy vegetables. People who ate one to two servings per day had the cognitive ability of a person 11 years younger than those who consumed none.

When the researchers examined individual nutrients linked with slowing cognitive decline, they found that vitamin K, lutein, folate and beta-carotene were most likely helping to keep the brain healthy. "Our study identified some very novel associations," said Morris, who presented the research at the American Society for Nutrition (ASN) Annual Meeting during Experimental Biology 2015. "No other studies have looked at vitamin K in relation to change in cognitive abilities over time, and only a limited number of studies have found some association with lutein." Other studies have linked folate and beta-carotene intake with slower cognitive decline.#uglybynature

Happy Sunday! 🤸🏻‍♂️Here is my @traderjoes grocery haul for this week. I try to consume mostly real, whole foods because it's what keeps me feeling great.
-
Before I started on my healthful journey, I had no idea what was in the food that I was eating. I never knew my body NEEDED the nutrients whole foods provide in order to function to the best of its ability. It's also crazy how many people I personally know that eat food that is so bad for them on the regular because they don't know what's actually in it! It's not to say that I don't indulge occasionally in foods I know aren't good for me, because I do. I'm not perfect and I don't intend to be. I believe being healthy is about creating healthier habits and not restrictions. I've learned to listen to my body and figure out what it needs to thrive so I can give it what it needs MOST of the time.
-
Consuming whole foods (& exercise) has helped my body in so many ways including balancing my hormones to offset the ovarian cysts I was getting. Today on the blog I talk about what foods you should try to limit (or avoid. Remember, do you always!) and give you some whole food alternatives to try instead.

It's not a coincidence I've surrounded my liquid chlorophyll with 🌱 🌱 plants 🤗. Chlorophyll is what helps plants transfer☀️into energy. I love adding chlorophyll to my 💦 for for it's many health benefits. Lots of research is still being done, but what we do know is that chlorophyll can help with :
☀️detoxifying the blood
🌱cleanses intestines ☀️weight loss because it...
🌱curbs sugar cravings &
☀️suppresses appetite.
🌱boosts immunity
☀️it's a powerful antioxidant- I mean seriously check out my insta story to see how incredibly green it is! And with any food, the richer the pigment the higher in antioxidants! 🌱freshens breath, reduced body odour and even minimizes stinky stools.

PS: it's also virtually flavourless so you don't have to worry if you're not a fan of the green💚

Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food. - Hippocrates

The more nutrient dense the food, the healthiest it is. Dark leafy greens are the healthiest food on earth (kale, bok choy, spinach, broccoli, etc).
