Worth the Effort?


The bottom line at Health Line regarding our livers reads:

“Your liver is an important organ with many essential functions.

Therefore, it makes sense to do what you can to protect it, and the foods listed above have demonstrated beneficial effects on the liver.

These include lowering the risk of liver disease and cancer, raising antioxidant and detoxification enzyme levels and offering protection from harmful toxins.

Incorporating these foods into your diet is a natural and healthy way to keep your liver functioning at its best.

So mosey on over at see the list.  I will tell you this Coffee is number ONE. Click HERE.

Number 6 is Prickly Pear.  And a prickly pear can be found where???

I think I may not be enjoying this prickly pear which this guy says  tastes something like raspberries and raspberries are one of my absolute favorites!

Cactus Pads? That’s what he said.


So have any of you tried either – fruit or pads?  Worth the effort?

Go Green!

The article said: inflammation has been linked to heart disease. What can I do to protect myself?

The meat of the article said:

One easy way to get anti-inflammatory foods? Go green. Think spinach, broccoli and Brussels sprouts. These foods deliver specific antioxidants that reduce inflammation. Broccoli even contains a compound that slows the growth of cancer cells. Whole grains also have been shown to reduce inflammation. Beans, peas and legumes can help stabilize blood sugar levels—fluctuating blood sugar levels can lead to inflammation and an increased risk for diabetes.

But it’s not just greens and grains that reduce inflammation: Herbs and spices like turmeric and cinnamon also have anti-inflammatory properties, so feel free to spice things up!
