Although detoxes and cleanses haven’t proven to have long term health benefits, it doesn’t hurt to do a little “reset” on your body from time to time. For example, if you’ve had a few weeks of mostly unhealthy eating due to life stressors and are feeling sluggish because of it. There’s nothing wrong with giving your body a little TLC from the inside out with healthy foods that will benefit you in the long run. After all, if your organs are not functioning at their peak, you won’t be able to either. Check out the nutritious foods you should be adding into your diet daily to keep your system healthy and balanced.
Whether you like strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries, they are an excellent form of antioxidants. They have plenty of Vitamin E and C and have been proven to benefit your cardiovascular system, prevent cancer, and other diseases. Studies have even found that women especially see major benefits from eating berries. Over 93,600 women signed up for the Nurses’ Health Study at the Harvard School of Public Health and Harvard Medical School, which observed their diets over a course of 18 years. The results showed that women who ate three or more servings of berries a week were 34 percent less likely to get a heart attack than women who ate the least of these fruits. Berries are also the perfect snack to have daily as other research has discovered that phytochemicals found in berries can keep the brain healthy. That means they can help reduce your chances of developing neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia, Alzheimer’s, and even Parkinson’s Disease.
