Beetroot Juice: 12 Health Benefits

Recent research shows, that this ruby red root veggie may be more affected at boosting energy than old Mr. caffeine itself, or nearly everything you’ll find in the supplement aisle.

My friends, to bolster your performance, grab yourself a juicer and gather some fresh beets, which are in season year round. Or just look for some bottle beet juice, which can be sipped straight or it can be blended into a pre-workout smoothie. Either way you’re going to experience a boosting of energy.


Is Tart Cherry Juice the Miracle Drink Your Workouts Are Missing?

At the University of Vermont’s Human Performance Laboratory, researchers asked men to drink either 12 oz of a tart cherry juice blend or a placebo twice-daily for 8 days. On the fourth day of this study, the athletes completed a strenuous straight training routine. Two weeks later, the opposite beverage was provided, and the training was repeated. Scientists found that the cherry juice had a significant effect on pain reduction. In addition, strength loss averages 22% in the placebo group, compared with just 4% in the cherry group. Fresh tart cherries are only in season, in the late summer, but frozen and dry options are becoming quite easier to find, as is 100% tart cherry juice.

How to Pick a Watermelon: 6 Helpful Tips

Very recently, Spanish Sports Medicine scientists discovered that watermelon juice helped relieve muscle soreness, when about 16 oz was consumed an hour before exercise. The effect is likely due to citrulline, which is a natural substance that is found in watermelon, that has been tied to improved artery function and lowered blood pressure (it’s even been dubbed nature’s Viagra). Bottled watermelon juice has started popping up all over the place. And when you eat it fresh, be sure to bite into the White rind a bit-that’s where the citrulline is found in higher concentrations.

The omega-3 fatty acids found in fatty fish like salmon has been linked to a long laundry list of benefits. From fighting heart disease to shaving off type 2 diabetes. But animal research shows it may also be a potent muscle booster. Compared with steers fed cottonseed and olive oil, those that consumed fish oil showed improved muscle development: Their bodies used twice the amount of amino acids to build new protein tissues, especially skeletal muscles. Include wild salmon in meals a few times a week or try salmon jerky as a possible snack. If you can’t or don’t eat seafood, look for algae based source of Omega-3s.

How dark chocolate could boost brain health, immunity

Numerous studies supports the myriad benefits of dark chocolate, and new research in the European Journal of Nutrition adds exercise protection to the list. In the study, healthy men were asked to eat 3.5 oz of 70% dark chocolate 2 hours before a 2 and 1/2 hour bout of cycling. Compared with a control group, the chocolate eaters experienced higher blood antioxidant levels and reduced markers of exercise-induced cell stress. You can enjoy a few individually wrapped squares of dark chocolate daily, melt and drizzle over fresh fruit, or mix it into oatmeal, smoothies, and parfaits.


Cheaper By The Pound: How Rock-Bottom Coffee Prices Are Impacting ...

A recent study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology found that glycogen, the body’s storage form of carbohydrates, is replenished more rapidly when athletes consume both carbs and caffeine following exhaustive exercise. Compared with carbs alone, the combo resulted in a 66% increase in muscle glycogen four hours after intense exercise. That’s significant because packing more fuel into the energy “piggy banks” within your muscles means that the next time you train or perform, You’ve upped your ability to exercise harder or even longer.


Watercress Salad |


A recent study published in the British Journal of Nutrition found that watercress, a peppery green from the mustard family, effectively countered the “wear and tear” effects of exercise. Healthy young men were given about 3 oz of watercress daily for 8 weeks, and asked to participate in treadmill workouts that included short bursts of intense exercise. Another exercise group, did the workout without watercress as a control. The men who missed out on Watercress experienced more exercise induced DNA damage, and the benefits were seen after just one dose. In other words my friends, those who ate the green for the first time, just two hours before hitting the treadmill experience the same benefits as those who had munched on it daily for 2 months. Watercress marks a wonderful salad base, and like spinach and kale, it can be whipped into a smoothie.

Now that you have this information, use these foods of the Gods, to improve your health, to maintain your overall good health. And always remember, having good health should always be one of your main priorities. Because, without it, you will never be able to live your life to the fullest.

May good health and prosperity be always with you.

  1. I learned some things today including watercress. I have never heard about that before.I used to eat it as a kid but don’t see it as much nowadays. I think to be fair my Dad grew in the garden. 

    I’m a big fan of cherries, a great flavour and also salmon which I think it’s really a very helpful fat. I try to eat fatty fish at least once a week as in the med diet or whatever they call it. Loved the pictures by the way.

    I had not thought of honey and don’t think I have any in so I will put that right. I don’t drink coffee but was wondering if this is ok from a health food shop as an alternative in capsule form?

    I actually add dark chocolate to my chilli as well as coffee and it goes down really well now. Some great reminders here and it felt natural just reading it! Good stuff and nice blog. 

    1. Good evening Phil, it’s nice to see you again. Yes indeed, these 10 foods that I mention are foods from the gods.

  2. Honey seems to be finally getting it’s due as far as nutrition is concerned.  We love honey at our house, and use it with our coffee quite often.  I see a new smoothie with some watercress, honey and pomegranate or beet juice.  Is the juice better than a capsule?  We don’t often have beets in our market?  Sour cherries and blueberries are favorites as well.  Watermelon will be a seasonal thing, again we are a small market part of the world.  The salmon is also in short order for fresh but tastes so good.  The canned fish never as good, but good for us. 

    With the new tips you have shared, we can know a few more items to add more regularly to our diet.  In our household, we try to change a little at a time so that it can be maintained.  I have found that is a more sustainable way for us.  Hopefully, the kids will be able to maintain a better diet for life.
