Superfood for Preventing and Reversing Bone Loss

The nutrition researchers recruited 236 women who had hit menopause one to ten years earlier, were not on hormone replacement therapy or taking any prescribed medications known to influence bone metabolism.

Two groups of women ate either 100 grams of dried plums or 100 grams of dried apples. Additionally, participants received 500 milligrams of calcium plus 400 IU of vitamin D daily.
Those eating the dried plums benefited from a big improvement in bone mineral density. Tests in the United Kingdom have yielded similar results.

March is National Nutrition Month

March is National Nutrition Month, time to review your diet and live healthier in 2015 and beyond.It doesn’t matter which nation you live in, because National Nutrition Month should really be called International Nutrition Month. Take time to review your diet, and that of your kids, for children are our future.

If you don’t have time or the opportunity to consult with a nutritionist, there are many excellent books on nutritional diets, plus lots of detailed information on the Web.

The Mediterranean Diet: Live Longer and Healthier

The Mediterranean diet is one example of a successful diet that can help you live longer as well as healthier. Little meat, extra virgin olive oil, and dark green vegetables like kale and broccoli are integral to the Mediterranean diet. Lots of nuts and legumes, too.

Peanuts, a legume not a nut, was recently pointed out as a way to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, and peanuts are also a brain food.

Lose Weight with New Superfood ?

The Queen Garnet plum resulted in weight loss in rats in a recent study of this new superfood from Australia. Like super fruits and foods such as blueberries and strawberries, this super plum has extremely high levels of Anthocyanin.

This anti-oxidant, found in many superfoods, lowers oxidative stress in the body’s cells, the reason many nutritionists recommend superfoods such as blueberries.

Research at the University of Southern Queensland resulted in evidence of this berry’s potential for losing weight. However, further research must be conducted before this claim can be positively verified. At least they taste good!
