What are some rich foods

spinach

In order to gain additional strength and vitality, it makes sense to consume spinach, as it is an excellent source of iron. Iron is an essential part of hemoglobin that transports oxygen to all cells.

Since cancer is only able to grow in oxygen-deficient cells, this healthy vegetable should be added to the menu more often depending on the season.

Spinach also contains various flavonoids, which act as antioxidants and anti-cancer drugs, especially in stomach, breast and skin cancers. A carotenoid called neoxanthin causes prostate cancer cells to self-destruct.

Spinach is an excellent source of vitamin K, which is necessary for bone health. Spinach also provides plenty of calcium and magnesium.

A healthy gastrointestinal tract, good eyesight and a low risk of inflammation are promoted by the following nutrients in spinach: vitamin C, beta-carotene, folic acid, vitamin B2 and vitamin A. These nutrients also protect against cardiovascular diseases.

Beans and lentils

These vegetables contain soluble fiber, which migrates through the digestive tract and binds numerous substances such as cholesterol and excretes in the stool. Eating a serving of cooked beans a day reduces the risk of a heart attack by almost 40%.

The soluble fiber creates additional insulin receptor sites so that more insulin can reach the cells again. Anyone who suffers from insulin resistance can benefit from this increase in receptor sites.

In addition to the rich amounts of common nutrients, beans and lentils are major sources of phytic acid, also known as IP6. This nutrient has been shown to have a significant inhibitory effect on various primary tumors, as it is able to support the self-destruction of cancer cells by promoting programmed cell death.

Phystic acid has also been shown to be effective against the deadly pancreatic cancer. It helps normalize cell physiology, increases natural killer cells and the P53 tumor suppressor gene, inhibits inflammatory responses and stops angiogenesis, the process by which tumors generate their own blood supply.

Nuts and seeds

Regular consumption of these foods reduces the risk of heart attack by a remarkable 60%. Researchers have shown that people who eat nuts tend to be leaner, have lower LDL cholesterol, and have stronger bones. You also have a lower risk of cancer and inflammation.

Nuts offer a cornucopia of nutrients. They have a fatty acid profile that has a beneficial effect on blood lipids and lipoproteins. They contain antioxidant polyphenols that counteract oxidative stress, which is a causal factor - both for neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases. They are also high in magnesium, boron and zinc, all of which are important minerals for bone health.

Nuts and seeds are also a rich source of the antioxidant mineral manganese, such as vitamin E, folic acid, copper and the amino acid arginine. Some nuts and seeds contain tryptophan, a stimulator for serotonin in the brain that relieves depression and stimulates recovery boosts. They are also rich in phytonutrients that protect against cancer and other chronic diseases.
