I have become quite a health freak and am extremely conscious about what food I put into my mouth. I have been supported my beautiful mother to embark on a lifestyle changing juice cleanse by the superfood loving, juice doctor himself Jason Vale.
As part of this cleanse I have a ginger shot on alternate mornings with cucumber and celery shots and then proceed to have a number of juices in the day which all have a number of key benefits. I have been following this routine for only 5 days and have already felt a number of health benefits including:
- Reduced circles and dark circles under the eyes
- Reduced headaches
- More restful sleep
- Tons more energy
To say I am happy is an understatement. However, I want to ensure I keep following this program for at least a month before I provide a solid review on sashashantel.com
However, what I do want to talk to you about is my healthy obsession with the super fruit that is BLUEBERRIES. These blue colour gems not only look beautiful but taste good too. However, do you know just how beneficial they are for your overall health? Here’s just 5 life changing benefits….
- Can help to reduce excess stomach fat
Ladies and gentlemen, I’m pretty convinced that I am not the only one who wants to attain and maintain a sexy tummy. A number of tests have been made on this superfood that have established that blueberries contain fat blasting components that tackle fat. If only everything that was good for you tasted this good.
2. Proven to enhance your eye sight
I honestly don’t want to wear glasses and have set myself the challenge to do everything in my power to retain my exceptional eye sight. Luckily for me, my favourite snack is loaded with compounds called anthocyanosides which have been found through a number of extensive clinical studies that it helps to delay age related eye problems. Blueberries also contain a fantastic anti-oxidant called Cartenoids which are also proven to improve your overall eye-sight.
3. Helps to reduce issues with constipation
It is the fibre in blueberries that helps with constipation and if it is is fibre you are looking for you need to ensure you aim to eat a punnet full as it only takes affect is larger amounts.
4. Reduces the risk of heart disease
When ever you want to establish whether a fruit or vegetable is good for the blood or any of the internal organs, look at the colour for a major hint. Once again the high fibre content in blueberries and those phenomenal anti oxidants are all proven to combat the risk of heart disease.
5. Help with digestion
Blueberries are filled with sodium, fructose, acids and vitamins proven to aid digestion and breakdown foods making them easier to digest and to consume.
These are just some of the amazing benefits of this superfruit. Look out for more of my health related posts on the foods that can give you a renewed lust for life. 🙂
