Life-Saving Foods

ORLANDO, Fla. (Ivanhoe Newswire) -- We all have heard, you are what you eat, but did you know what you eat could fight off deadly diseases? These foods could save your life.

So many choices, so little time!  Be sure to choose the foods that could have the most impact!

First, grab some tomatoes! They’re high in the antioxidant lycopene and it has been found that people with more lycopene in their blood are less likely to have a stroke.

Want to lower your risk of dementia and cardiovascular disease? Try eating salmon. It is packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which most people don’t consume enough of.

Garlic contains 10 compounds that help break down substances, especially carcinogens, that could cause cancer.

And grab another scoop of cranberries at your holiday meal. They are full of antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and immune-boosting properties.

So by eating the right foods we could actually be adding years to your life.

Also try using coconut oil. It is the best oil you can use because it contains the perfect fats for weight loss and also has antimicrobial properties that kill fungi, bacteria and viruses.
