The Health Benefits of Sushi

The Health Benefits of Sushi

Health Expert Peter Nielsen Explains the Health benefits of Fish & Sushi

In this video:

Sashimi is just sliced raw fish, sometimes dipped in sauces and sometimes served with sushi. Sushi is any food dish consisting of vinegared rice, usually served with some other toppings, but not always. It happens to often be served with various types of sea food, either cooked or raw, and perhaps even a mix of the two; but that tradition simply comes from the primary food staples of the locations where sushi originated (not Japan, by the way). Sushi can be served with just about any toppings or none at all.

Mangosteen Health Benefits

Mangosteen Health Benefits

 

The natural health researchers at Institute for Vibrant Living (IVL) have investigated the properties of the Mangosteen and it’s purported natural health benefits. Here is their report:

If you discovered a fruit which was found to boost energy, counter inflammation, was a powerful antioxidant and had anti-ageing properties, wouldn’t you add it to your weekly shopping list?

YES!!…

What is Mangosteen?

Mangosteen is an ugly dark red fruit with a clover-shaped green stem. It has been shown to provide all these health benefits and more and is providing some interesting results in recent research.

Mangosteen is a slow-growing tropical tree which is native to southeast Asia. The tree can grow up to 80 feet tall in a humid equatorial climate and thrives in Thailand, Burma and some parts of tropical Australia. The fruit is the size of a small orange and has three parts.

The thick burgundy-colored pericarp or rind contains a high intensity of Xanthones; the white pulp inside is one of the tastiest fruits in the world, and the seeds are found within the pulp.

The health benefits of mangosteen have been known for centuries in Asian medicine and it is used for treating skin wounds, rashes, inflammation and diarrhea. The dark red pericarp of the mangosteen fruit is ground with a mortar and used to dress infections. The accumulated knowledge of this wonder fruit has been passed down through the generations and used extensively in the Far East.

Specific Health Benefits of Mangosteen

Now, scientific study of mangosteen fruit shows that these benefits aren’t just mythical. The latest research into what makes mangosteen so effective shows that the rind of mangosteen is high in polyphenol compounds called xanthones which are rich in antioxidant properties. These are already known to be beneficial in the treatment of  cardiovascular diseases, including ischemic heart disease, atherosclerosis, hypertension and thrombosis.

Xanthones are found in other rainforest plants and dark red fruits such as purple kumara, a staple for New Zealand Maoris. Researchers found that Alpha Mangostin and Gamma Mangostin, both found in the outer skin of mangosteens, have a significant effect on cardiovascular health.

They are natural antibiotics with antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties as well as containing some of the most powerful antioxidants found in nature. Modern science is finally catching up with what herbal doctors have known for centuries.

A Natural Cure For TB?

Mangosteen has also been found to have an inhibitory effect on bacterial organisms, in particular Mycobacterium Tuberculosis, the cause of most cases of tuberculosis, and Staphylococcus Aureus, which commonly causes post-surgical infections. This fruit has been found to support and strengthen a weak immune system.

Most people are aware of the importance of the antioxidant properties in health supplements such as Vitamins C and E but these are actually synthetic vitamin supplements. How much more effective and safe it is to take antioxidants in a natural form, as Mother Nature intended.

Whole food antioxidants have been shown to be much more powerful than synthetic products, and mangosteen has a bounty of antioxidants within its thick outer pericarp, winning high praise and respect from many scientists and researchers.

Advocates of the health benefits of mangosteen suggest that those who start to include mangosteen in their health regimen do not need to be told it is good for them, they will actually feel the benefits.
