Watermelon Juice Relieves Muscle Sorenes

A recent study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry has shown encouraging evidence that watermelon juice may have healing powers when it comes to sore muscles.

In the small study, researchers gave seven athletes plain

 watermelon juice, watermelon juice enriched with an amino acid called L-citrulline or a placebo drink before bouts of intense exercise. L-citrulline has been used as a supplement for many years. It helps boost blood flow to the muscles, allowing them to receive more oxygen and thus repair the muscles faster, says study author Encarna Aguayo, PhD, associate professor of food technology at the Technical University of Cartagena.
The athletes reported less muscle soreness on the days they drank both the plain and the enriched watermelon juice. Both were shown to help reduce muscle soreness and heart rate recovery 24 hours post-exercise.

Not only does watermelon juice contain this muscle-repairing amino acid, it’s packed full of vitamins A & C, lyocpene and beta carotene, making it an all-round healthy drink.

Fast-Food Linked To Depression

People who eat fast food are 51% more likely to develop depression.


Researchers studied 8,964 people over a six-month period. None of the participants had been previously diagnosed with depression or had taken anti-depressants. Yet at the end of the study, 493 were diagnosed with depression or had started taking anti-depressants.

The study showed that people who ate fast food were more likely to be single, with poor dietary habits and less likely to be active. They also tended to smoke and work longer hours per week. It also revealed that the more fast food a person ate, the higher their risk to develop depression.


This new study supports a similar one performed in 2011 where 12,059 people were also studied over a six-month period. In that study, a 42% increase in risk for depression was found.


While little is known about the relationship between diet and depression, studies such as these are revealing some of the effects of certain foods or diets on mental health.

And for you vegetarians out there, our #1 belly-burner is cruciferous vegetables like:

·       Broccoli

·       Cauliflower

·       Kale

·       Brussels Sprouts

·       Because they naturally fight environmental estrogens that make us fat.

·       Now, before we get to our 2nd sneaky eating trick, let’s talk about…

        The #1 weight loss mistake that keeps most dieters from ever becoming slim & trim.                                                           

          I'm not talking about ..... cutting calories for too long.

·       What? But aren’t you supposed to avoid your favorite foods and cut calories week                 

        after week to lose fat?

·       Not so fast.

·       You see, after about 7 days of dieting, your body begins to think you’re starving, so it          

        fights back by conserving calories and reducing your body's #1 fat-burning

        hormone, leptin, by a whopping 50%.

·       As a result, your body starts hoarding calories like a squirrel stores acorns for winter,    

        and you end up burning only half the fat you should be.

·       Soon your weight loss comes to a screeching halt and you give up, and worse yet       

        you start gaining weight because you’ve accidentally lowered your calorie-burning

       metabolism. Sound familiar?

·       But there’s a surprising scientific eating trick that forces leptin to work overtime so it       

        keeps burning fat like crazy. It’s something we call“nutrient confusion…”

·       And here’s how it works:

·       Every day of the week, you simply change the number of calories, fat, protein and    

        carbs you eat–in a very specific way–for just 21 days… this fools your body into

        keeping leptin levels sky-high so your weight loss never slows down. In fact, it 

        doubles in speed!

·       And believe it or not, you really can lose 10… 15… or even 20+ pounds with this

        simple 21-day eating trick. And don’t worry, it’s doctor-approved and suitable for

        virtually everyone, including vegetarians, and even gluten-free dieters.

·       Yes, we're talking about strategic, rapid fat loss in just 21 short days.

Wheatgrass juice is considered a complete food. In other words, contains all the vitmins, minerals and amino acids necessary for the human body's proper nutrition.

One ounce of wheatgrass juice is nutritionally equivalent to two pounds of leafy green vegetables. It has antibacterial properties and is also a powerful detoxifier, which is the most important step to helping your body snap back from a powerful illness like cancer.

1:  Wheatgrass juice is one of the best sources of living chlorophyll available.

2: Chlorophyll neutralizes toxins in the body, purifies the liver and improves blood sugar problems. It also arrests growth and development of unfriendly bacteria. Liquid chlorophyll washes drug deposits from the body.

3: Chlorophyll can be extracted from many plants, but wheatgrass is superior because it has been found to have over 100 elements needed by man. If grown organically, it absorbs 92 of the 102 known minerals from the store.

4: Drinking wheatgrass juice is great for skin problems such as eczema or psoriasis. Wheatgrass juice cures acne and even removes scars after it has been ingested for seven to eight months. (Diet must be improved at the same time).

5: A small amount of wheatgrass juice in your diet prevents tooth decay. When held in the mouth for 5 minutes, wheatgrass juice will eliminate toothaches. It pulls poison from the gums.

6: By taking wheatgrass juice, one may feel a difference in strength, endurance, health and spirituality, and experience a sense of wellbeing.

7: And lastly, wheatgrass juice improves digestion and helps ease constipation.

I personally think that if you're considering taking wheatgrass juice on a regular basis, you should either grown your own or buy it fresh and put it through your home juicer. And if you don't have a home juicer ask yourself why not?
