Beauty begins within and so does good health. Here is my quick list to start your ABC’s and move toward a healthier you!
Eating apples every day can help lower your cholesterol. It’s the pectin in the apple that lowers the LDL or bad cholesterol. People who eat two apples per day may lower their cholesterol by as much as 16 percent.
High levels of flavonoids, quercetin and naringin in apples are believed to help lower the risk of lung cancer.
In addition to lowering cholesterol, apples contain a double fiber combination that can reduce the risk of hardening of the arteries, heart attack and stroke.
Beets are a good source of vitamin C, potassium and iron. One-third cup of beets every day can lower your cholesterol by 40 percent.
Beets give you the cancer-fighting antioxidant beta-carotene plus 2 grams of healthy fiber. One-half cup of cooked beets is a mere 37 calories. They’re naturally sweet, but have only 7 grams of sugar per half-cup serving.
Carrots are an excellent source of antioxidant agents. As a result, they can help protect against cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Carrots can also help reduce cholesterol and are rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K and potassium.
These are just some and not all of the health benefits provided by apples, beets and carrots. Add the ABC’s to your diet and see what a difference they can make.
