Let food be thy Medicine: Hippocrates

Some of the greatest minds in history believe that plants and food identify the benefits they give to mankind.  Here are some examples of foods that science has proven to be of benefit, by the organs they resemble:

Walnuts:  Walnuts look like the brain.  They are high in omega-3 fatty acids and aid in the function of neurotransmitter receptors.  These nuts are solid confirmation of supporting your brain health.

Ginger:  Ginger looks like the stomach and the best way to naturally cure nausea, it also aids in digestion and nutrient absorption.

Tomatoes:  Tomatoes are red and have chambers similar to the human heart and contain lycopene and potassium.  Lycopene can lower LDL (bad cholesterol), which lowers stroke risk.

Mushrooms:  A sliced mushroom looks like the human ear.  They contain Vitamins C, D and E which guard against cellular damage in the ears and blood vessels.

Pomegranates: Pomegranate seeds resemble red blood cells which improve blood flow and promote healthy blood pressure.

Grapes:  Grapes look like the alveoli of the lungs and are full of antioxidants and resveratrol, which supports cells of the nasal passages and lungs.

Carrots:  Carrots, when cut, looks like the human eye.  Carrots contain beta-carotene, the key vitamin that protects eye health.

Kidney beans: Identical match to your real kidneys are rich in magnesium and potassium which help keep your kidneys free from plaque buildup.

Celery:  Not only looks like your bones, even with that same snappy crunch.  This veggie is loaded with Vitamin K, which is important to bone health.  Celery is also rich in calcium, folate, manganese and magnesium, all great for healthy bones.

Remember, you are what you eat!

To your health!
