Yes let’s talk about the heart. Not only is it the strongest muscle of the human body but that little pump of yours actually pumps between 10,000 to 11,000 quarts of blood throughout the human body in a 24 hour period with only about 5 quarts of blood in the body.
For the proper efficiency of the heart the colon must be free of any accumulation of waste or putrefying fermenting matter. That is how important the proper cleanliness of the colon is.
Just as your body has good and bad bacteria so also your body has good and bad cholesterol. It is only a half truth that bad cholesterol is what blocks certain arteries to cause a heart attack. First of all the only time cholesterol will attach itself to the artery wall is when the artery is damaged.
There are many reasons why arterial walls get damaged. The following are just a few – wrong mixtures of chemicals taken, hydrogenated oils and trans fats, homogenized dairy now let me clarify – through the homogenization process the molecular structure of the dairy is changed, or more often than not free radicals in the bloodstream.
What is a free radical? A free radical is an unstable oxygen molecule that is lacking an electron. So this little molecule travels throughout the bloodstream stealing electrons from other cells therefore making them deficient. When enough deficient cells mutate together hence we have cancer.
What is resveratrol, and where does it come from? Resveratrol is a protein, natural phenol and an antioxidant found in the skin of grapes, acai-berries, blueberries, strawberries, noni-berries, goji-berries, and cranberries primarily, and it’s health effects are numerous, which is why we must understand this precious commodity found in nature. That is why I love to talk about Natural Healing versus taking medication for your ailments any day of the week. I would rather heal naturally then induce my body with chemicals that could be detrimental to my body down the road.
First of all, before you can even begin to talk about Natural Healing you must first begin to study nature and why certain things are the way they are. It is interesting to observe, resveratrol is found in the skin of grapes and berries and note that the skin is to protect the berries from the attacks of micro organisms, including bacteria and heat.
Why do the berries need to be protected? For when the berries are exposed to high temperatures from the sun they lose much of their nutritional value not to mention micro-organisms such as bacteria spoil the potency of the berries nutritionally as well as making them rot much faster. What we learn from this is, why many people on this planet have become raw foodists.
The greatest nutrition you obtain from a food is when it has not been heated, whether on the stove or the microwave and eaten only raw. Which is why I am an avid juicer. When you heat food past 122 degrees fahrenheit you are killing the enzymes in the food. It is the enzymes in the food we eat that are the cataclysts for every biochemical reaction in the human body.
The most healing power that comes from food that we eat is in the raw food which is unaltered through a heating process or pasteurization process. I am talking about Natural Healing at it’s finest. Yes food taken in right proportions and natural state can be classified as natural remedies to the body.
The health effects of resveratrol are substantial in the human body. Number one, it is an excellent anti-oxidant which is needed to facilitate the liver. Remember the liver is the filter, detoxifyer and cleanser for the human body. Yes even aspirin is a toxin and taken in abundance is harmful to the liver.
Taken in large quantities, resveratrol has shown to be great for athletes in weightloss, increasing testosterone levels and acts as an anti-estrogen which leads to an increased sex drive. It also has the ability to build muscle mass, lose fat and enhances the ability of the brain to work better since it increases the sparking ability of the nerotransmitters of the brain to send messages to the rest of the body.
Resveratrol prevents atherosclerosis as well. In the New England Journal of Medicine published March 12, 2009., the study found by introducing resveratrol as an antioxidant it reversed clogged arteries specifically the LDL cholesterol that was building up in the arteries.
A further study by Park and Colleagues showed that foam cells are trapped by interaction with oxidized low density lipoprotein (LDL) and can be remobilized by dynamic exposure to key oxidants such a resveratrol. Many clinical studies have been done on Lab Mice and the results were verifyable, those mice that were fed resveratrol ran faster and lived longer than the mice that were not.
You must start eating foods that are rich in resveratrol, since it is one of the best brain foods in the world if you want to recover quickly from heart disease. My personal favorite is the Acai berry from Brazil. It has one of the highest ORAC Values of all the berries on the planet. What is ORAC value ( Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity )? It means it has one of the highest absorption rates for oxygen to the blood. In other words a Blood Healer.
A person who has a high content of oxygen level in their blood stream is a very healthy person who does not suffer from many sicknesses or disease because an oxygen rich blood value is what fights off sickness and disease. I am talking about Natural Remedies at it’s finest.
Here is further documentation. According to Dr. Nate Lebowitz M.D. cardiologist with the advanced cardiology institute in Ft. Lee, New Jersey the following is a statement from Dr. Lebowitz.
“Dr. Lebowitz says resveratrol appears to exhibit broader action than aspirin. Resveratrol is documented to reduce clotting that may block blood circulation in coronary arteries, reduce homocysteine, an undesirable blood protein associated with cardiovascular disease, reduce markers of inflammation like C-reactive protein, regenerate vitamin E, as well as release adenosine, the molecule responsible for the “pre-conditioning” effect seen in animal experiments.”
So here you have it. Resveratrol is excellent for anyone suffering from Heart Disease or recently had a heart attack and need proper nutrition to heal naturally. Natural Healing is much safer than medications for dementia as well. No, eating the right foods will not cure alzheimers disease, but will help to eradicate any further damage you have done by not taking the proper nutrition to prevent dementia and alzheimers disease in the first place.
By the way, if you’re thinking red wine is good for you. Yes, taken in small amounts like 1 to 2 glasses per day. On the other hand if you’re drinking 1 to 2 bottles per day, you are only hurting your liver which is also harming the rest of your body. Most elderly people that have lived to be in the 90 or over 100 years old will tell you that their secrets were, eating well, exercise and 1 to 2 glasses of red wine per day. Oh yes, one last word to the wise, for the Zoomer crowd out there guess what? Resveratrol has proven to be one of the best anti-aging agents known to mankind.
