After studying more than 31,000 men, the Harvard School of Public Health researchers reported that those who were physically active had a 30 percent lower risk for erectile dysfunction than the men with little or no physical activity. Overall, people who exercise feel better about themselves, feel more sexually desirable, and report higher levels of satisfaction, according to a study in the Electronic Journal of Human Sexuality.
These regions and countries also happen to enjoy some of the lowest levels of chronic disease in the world. Rates of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, and more are a fraction of what they are in the United States and other western countries.
I have since purchased a Vitamix and my green smoothies have reached a whole new level. I now use red beets, celery, carrots, cucumbers, apples with the skin, and any fruit or veggie that appeals to me. I don’t need to use a liquid unless I want to thin it down a little, or if I want it for the taste. (Frozen fruit can add a lot of thickness. The picture up above is one of my thick smoothies. Almost “milkshake” like.) This morning’s green smoothie was a very ripe banana, three large kale leaves, a small red beet, a lot of frozen strawberries, and a little spring water. It was actually a beautiful red smoothie! I have made green smoothies that were very busy with a lot of different vegetables, and I have made them simple, using only a few.
So, one rainy Sunday I brainstormed a list of healthy, alternatives and stuck it on my fridge. This visual reminder is worth its weight in gold! I’m forever adding to the list when I come across delicious recipes and health boosting ingredients such asmaca root powderpowder, spirulina, whey concentrate, raw cacao, coconut sugar or agave. Here are my top 20 healthy snacks just for you.
Mix equal quantities of rye, oats, barley and chicory. Add 2 grams of bitter almonds. Infuse the mix with boiling watermaca root powderand drink as a coffee. You can add boiling milk.
Folic Acid and a B complex supplement. B vitamins help support neural tube development (the baby’s brain and spinal cord) and prevent spina bifida. Not only do these help support your baby, but also gives you loads more of energy, helps to ease any nausea and supports a healthy nervous system and metabolism. It never hurts to take additional B complex supplement in addition to your prenatal. If anything, you will feel better.
Another way is to take two or one egg whites and beat it well. Then massage the mixed eggs on your hair and let it stay and dry for a while. When your hair is completely dry you can now comb and brush out the mixture from your hair. This can give nourishment to your hair and is a great treatment for the hair. It is also a hair treatment that many people use.
