A fully ripe banana produces a substance called TNF( Tumor Necrosis Factor) which has the ability to combat abnormal cells. As it ripens, it develops dark spots or patches on the skin.

The more dark patches it has, the higher will be itsโ€™ immunity enhancement quality. According to Japanese scientific research, bananas contain TNF, which has anti-cancer properties. According to their study, it helps to increase the immune system capacity. The conclusion of the study was that eating those ripe bananas may just prevent certain lifestyle-related diseases and carcinogenesis.

The degree of anti-cancer effect corresponds to the degree of ripeness of the fruit, i.e. the riper the banana, the better the anti-cancer quality.

It is a fact that nutrient content of fruits change slightly as they ripen. As a banana ripens and turns yellow, its levels of antioxidants increases.
In an experiment carried out by Japanese scientists, the various health benefits of different ripe fruits, as banana, grape, apple, watermelon, pineapple, pear and persimmon were compared and it was found out that banana gave the best results. It increased the number of white blood cells, enhanced the immunity of the body and produced anti-cancer substance TNF. Recommendation is to eat 1 to 2 bananas a day to increase your body immunity to diseases like cold, flu and others.

It's believed that bananas having reached the stage of multiple brown spots may have a considerable amount more of TNF-alpha โ€” and be up to 8 times more effective than the green skin banana version or fresher #bananas without the same dark patches or spots, i.e 8 times more effective in enhancing the property of white blood cells.

The research concluded that the activity of banana was comparable to that of Lentinan, a chemical immunostimulant that is intravenously administered as an anti-cancer agent. So, ripe #banana can act as an anti-cancer agent by stimulating the production of white blood cells in the human cell line and preventing cell mutation.#uglybynature

Free radicals/reactive oxygen species are related to many biological phenomena such as inflammation, aging, and carcinogenesis. The body possesses various antioxidative systems (free radical scavenging activity, FRSA) for preventing oxidative stress, and saliva contains such activity.

In the present study, we measured the total salivary FRSA induced after the smelling of lavender and rosemary essential oils that are widely used in #aromatherapy. Various physiologically active substances in saliva such as cortisol, secretory IgA, and alpha-amylase activity were found to be correlated with aroma-induced FRSA. .

The subjects (22 healthy volunteers) sniffed aroma for 5 min, and each subject's saliva was collected immediately. FRSA was measured using 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl. The FRSA values were increased by stimulation with low concentrations (1000 times dilution) of lavender or by high-concentrations (10 times dilution) of rosemary. In contrast, both lavender and rosemary stimulations decreased cortisol levels. A significant inverse correlation was observed between the FRSA values and the cortisol levels with each concentration of rosemary stimulation. No significant changes were noted in sIgA or alpha-amylase. These findings clarify that #lavender and #rosemary enhance FRSA and decrease the #stress hormone, cortisol, which protects the body from oxidative stress.#uglybynature

1 tin coconut milk (cream only)
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
2 cups strawberries
โ€”โ€”Methodโ€”โ€”
1. Leave the tins of coconut milk in the fridge to cool for a few hours. This will separate the water from the cream. Itโ€™s important you use good quality coconut milk, otherwise the milk and cream might not separate.
2. Line a 7โ€ x 7โ€ baking tin with greaseproof paper.

5. Next, drain the dates and blend them with 2 tbsp of the maple syrup to make a smooth paste.
6. Transfer the paste to the mixing bowl with the almond flour and combine with the cocoa powder and the cream taken from a tin of coconut milk.
7. Once well combined, pour the mixture into the baking tin. Use a spatula to level the mixture, then refrigerate the base until the cheesecake mix is ready.
8. To make the strawberry cheesecake layer, drain the cashews and place in a blender.
9. Add all the remaining cheesecake ingredients to the blender, including 1 cup of the strawberries, and blend until smooth.
10. Remove the base from the refrigerator and pour the strawberry cheesecake layer over the brownie base. Gently tap the baking tin to level the cheesecake layer.
11. Cut the remaining strawberries into slices roughly half a cm thick and arrange on top of the cheesecake for decoration.
12. Place the baking tin in a freezer for two hours, then slice into rectangles cakes and serve immediately.

Repost@xlo5150
I (obviously) loved the fact that it's cruelty free and an amazing alternative to regular toothpastes, which have all the nasty stuff we dont want in our bodies. As far as the actual toothpaste, not so used to the way it feels yet, but it is just as effective and well there's not much else to say I love everything about it. Thank you guys sm!

One of the reasons we use NON-GMO birch xylitol in our toothpaste! ๐Ÿ™Œ Xylitol is also made from corn, which is likely #GMO corn. .
.

An overview of studies about xylitol and #dental caries suggests potential clinical dental applications for xylitol.
Xylitol is a naturally occurring, low-calorie sugar substitute with anticariogenic properties. Data from recent studies indicate that xylitol can reduce the occurrence of dental caries in young children, schoolchildren, and mothers, and in children via their mothers. Xylitol, a sugar alcohol, is derived mainly from #birch and other hardwood trees.

Short-term consumption of xylitol is associated with decreased Streptococcus mutans levels in saliva and plaque. Aside from decreasing dental caries, xylitol may also decrease the transmission of S. mutans from mothers to children. Commercial xylitol-containing products may be used to help control rampant decay in primary dentition. Studies of schoolchildren in Belize and Estonia, along with data from the University of Washington, indicate that xylitol gum, candy, ice pops, cookies, puddings, etc., in combination with other dental therapies, are associated with the arrest of carious lesions.
A prospective trial in Finland has demonstrated that children of mothers treated with #xylitol had lower levels of S. mutans than children of mothers treated with chlorhexidine or #fluoride varnish. Food products containing xylitol are available commercially and through specialized manufacturers, and have the potential to be widely accessible to consumers.#uglybynature

Spirulina is one of the most nutrient rich food supplements available in nature. It is one of the heaviest sources of beta-carotene, as it has 10 times more of it than carrots. It is rich in protein, and contains every essential amino acid you can talk about. It is also abundant in fatty acids, including the very rare gamma linoleum acid. Vitamins K, E, C, B, A, and minerals like chromium, calcium potassium, magnesium, copper and iron are also widely present in spirulina. If you are still looking for reasons to try spirulina, it has abundance of phytonutrients to, like sulfolipids, glycolipids, polysaccharides and chlorophyll.

As compared to spirulina, it is quite new, but it is not low in nutrient content. In fact, chlorella contains highest amount of chlorophyll than any other known plant on this earth. It is also rich in alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lutein and other cartenoids. It is also a rich source of vitamins K, E, D, C and B, and minerals like iron, magnesium, zinc, calcium and phosphorus. Both spirulina and chlorella are abundant in protein, even more than steak. It is also a rich source of oleic acid and other healthy fats.
Both chlorella and #spirulina are rich sources of nutrients, and both offer amazing health benefits. Spirulina is ancient but chlorella is newly found, but both are two of the richest and most nutritious food items in the world. You can choose the one as per your body requirements and your nutrition needs.
Owing to its rich nutrient content, spirulina is extremely helpful in fighting body infection, inhibiting allergies, preventing cancer, lowering cholesterol and increasing good cholesterol. It also gives nice aid to people trying to lose weight.

On the other hand, chlorella also features vast health benefits. It supports healthy functioning of the hormones, and aids cardiovascular health. It minimizes the side effects of radiation and chemotherapy, and helps in reducing cholesterol and blood pressure levels. #Chlorella is extremely helpful in eliminating harmful toxic substances from the body.#uglybynature

Vegan "NOtella" Chocolate Spread ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ˜โค
by @mymeatlessmeals -
Ingredients:
โ€ข 1 can chickpeas*
(Rinse and boil in 4 cups water and 2 tbs vanilla extract, to get rid of the chickpea smell, for about 10 minutes)
โ€ข 1 avocado, ripe
โ€ข 2 tbs coconut sugar
โ€ข 1/8 tsp Himalayan salt
โ€ข 4 tbs vegan butter, melted โ€ข 1/4 cup cocoa powder
โ€ข 1/4 cup maple syrup
๐Ÿฅ‘
Instructions:
1. In a food processor, add boiled chickpeas and blend until smooth.
2. Add avocado, coconut sugar, salt, cocoa powder* (don't use raw cocoa for this recipe, I found that roasted cocoa powder enhances the overall flavours), melted vegan butter, and maple syrup, and continue to blend until well combined.
3. Check the overall consistency, make sure there is no lumps or anything unpleasant in your chocolate spread. Have a taste and make sure the mixture is smooth. Once you're satisfied with the result- transfer the mixture to a jar.
4. The spread should set without being refrigerated, as shown in the video, if it's too thick, add a splash of plant milk to thin out the mixture.

This popular fruit is a powerhouse of nutrients. Guava is a good source of energy, dietary fiber, and vitamins such as vitamin A, vitamin C, niacin, vitamin B-6, folate, thiamine, and riboflavin. It also contains essential minerals like calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron and potassium. If the traditional adage says that, โ€œan apple a day keeps the doctor away,โ€ in Europe and America, the phrase is probably changed to, โ€œa few guavas in the season keeps the doctor away for the whole year,โ€ in the tropical and subtropical regions of the world where guavas typically grow.

The intake of guava can also help those patients who suffer from diabetes. High level of dietary fiber in guava helps lower blood glucose levels in the body. Studies have shown that consuming guava can help prevent the appearance of type-2 #diabetes.

Guavas are an extremely good source of vitamin A, which is well known as a booster for vision health. Guava can help slow down the appearance of cataracts, macular degeneration and improve the overall health of the eyes. It helps protect the cells in your eyes and can also prevent deterioration of #eyesight.

One of the most important benefits of adding guava to your diet is its ability to inhibit the growth and metastasis of cancerous cells. There have been numerous studies done in recent years on guavaโ€™s effects primarily on prostate cancer, breast cancer, and oral cancers. #Guava leaf oil acts as an antiproliferative substance and has actually proven to be more effective than some leading modern medicines in reducing cancerous growths. #Guavas are also rich in lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that can reduce prostate cancer risk. The same antioxidant has also shown its efficacy in inhibiting the growth of breast cancer cells, though more tests are to be done to support this finding.

The naturally high content of #VitaminC in guavas, which are four times higher than the content found in #oranges (the traditional vitamin C powerhouse), helps huge boost the immune system. #uglybynature

A significant study links berry consumption with improved heart health. You canโ€™t get the same benefit from a pill or supplement.

The finding comes from a new study led by Dr. Eric Rimm, associate professor at the Harvard School of Public Health and Harvard Medical School. โ€œThe sooner people start the type of diet that includes a higher intake of blueberries and strawberries, the better,โ€ Dr. Rimm says.

Dr. Rimmโ€™s team gathered data from 93,600 women, who, at ages 25 to 42, signed up for the Nursesโ€™ Health Study. Over the course of 18 years, they reported how often they ate various kinds of food.

Women who ate the fewest blueberries and strawberries were at increased risk of heart attack. Those who ate the most were 34% less likely to have suffered a #heartattack than were women who ate the least of these fruits.

How much do you have to eat? There wasnโ€™t much difference between women who ate just a few berries now and then and those who didnโ€™t eat any at all. There seems to be a threshold effectโ€”that is, one has to eat a minimum amount of berries to get heart benefits. โ€œThe people with #heart benefits had three or more servings of a half a cup of blueberries or strawberries each week,โ€ Rimm says.

Why just #blueberries and #strawberries? These berries are particularly rich in chemical compounds called anthocyanins. Research suggests that anthocyanins have several effects on the body. They lower #bloodpressure, and they make blood vessels more elastic.#uglybynature
