Health Benefits

Buckwheat can often be misunderstood for wheat the grain, as wheat is

pronounced in the name, but buckwheat is something Else.  A fruit seed to be in

fact that is gluten free and a healthy choice to replace other grains like rice or

oats!  Buckwheat is a great source for high digestible and high quality protein that

can easily be a better option than animal flesh.  Actually the high protein flour from

buckwheat is being studied for possible uses in foods for treating plasma

cholesterol, body fat, and cholesterol gallstones.  Even the leaves from the tree are

used to make medicine that help with high blood pressure.  Buckwheat may also

help with diabetes having a low glycemic level, and is great for digestion!

Buckwheat is full of soluble and insoluble digestible dietary fiber that is good for

preventing constipation and speeding up bowel movement in the gut.  The grains

from buckwheat are rich in minerals of copper and magnesium that are great boast

of minerals.  Buckwheat grows at a surprisingly fast rate and often is not sprayed

with harsh chemicals making them a healthy choice.  Overall, buckwheat is an

amazing fruit seed that can substitute meat and other grains for the high protein

and fiber content.

Bananas are extremely good for you and your health for many reasons.  For one,

scientist believe that bananas were the first fruit on Earth.  Bananas are grown in

over 107 countries and are among the most consumed fruits in the world.

Bananas are also good for lowering cardiovascular dis-ease including high blood

pressure, high cholesterol, and asthma.  The nutrients like fiber, potassium,

vitamin B6, and C found in bananas promote a healthy heart.  The daily intake of

fiber for an adult is 4700 mg and less than 2% of US adults meet those daily

intakes.  People are not eating enough fruit throughout the day causing them to

feel hungry.  Studies show that people with higher intakes of potassium have a

49% lower risk of ischemic heart dis-ease.  Bananas can also prevent cancer cells

from forming by destroying the formation of free radicals because of the high

levels of potassium.  Bananas are also good for diabetes, treating diarrhea,

preserving memory, and boosting mood (tryptophan amino acid helps preserve

memory and boost mood.

Coconut Oil: Everyone by now should now how good coconut oil is but if you

don’t let me tell you.  Coconut oil is one of the best natural oils to eat and use on

the body for the healthy glowing hair.  Coconut oil is highly affective in reducing

protein loss that leads to unattractive hair qualities.  Coconut oil is also very good

for preventing heart di-ease (lowering high blood pressure and cholesterol)

because of the healthy saturated fats found in coconut oil unlike vegetable oils.

Saturated fats have been found by studies not be harmful if taking in moderation

and from a good sources like coconut oil.  Coconut oil is recommended for a lot of

different reasons like preventing kidney problems (e.g. kidney stones),

pancreatitis, diabetes, stress relief (rubbing coconut oil on forehead relieves

fatigue), heart dis-ease (healthy saturated fats), healthy bones (calcium,

magnesium), candida (proven and shown to cure candida), dental care (prevent

tooth decay) and cancer.
