Foods That Heal
Next time your muscles ache, put down the ibuprofen and give cherries a try! Tart cherries—one cup, or two glasses of juice, daily, before and during exercise should do the trick. They contain the same anti-inflammatory enzymes as ibuprofen, without the potential kidney and stomach-related side effects.
Struggling with memory loss? Toss a handful of sunflower seeds into your mouth. A quarter cup daily will do the trick. These vitamin E-loaded seeds will protect the neurons in your brain from oxidative stress, which means you keep your memory longer.
We’ll all deal with aging skin at some point. Try eating more oranges—one daily, or six ounces of juice. Vitamin C helps your body make collagen, the protein that keeps skin elastic.
Dealing with depression? One cup of brown rice daily will help. Carbs help regulate the production of serotonin, a key neurotransmitter in controlling mood and suppressing anxiety. A complex carb like brown rice will give you the best high-carb-low-cal combo.
