Rumble in the jungle: Cocoa vs Cacao!

No, they are not the same thing!

What do you know about the nutritional and healing qualities of raw cacao?

File:Theobroma cacao fruit, Botanical Garden, Hamburg IMG 1548 edit.jpgChocolate has been promoted by health experts for years as having health benefits.  Studies conducted on people who consume chocolate vs. those who do not showed a much lower instance of illness for those who consumed chocolate regularly.  In fact, a Dutch study indicated that the more chocolate eaten, the better for health.  Now, consider the fact that when you process chocolate, you destroy much of the nutritional value that was originally within the unprocessed beans.  Heating chocolate causes the omega 6 fatty acids present to go rancid and cause inflammation.  If you eat raw unheated cacao, there are a scope of advantages over eating a processed chocolate bar.  Bad associations with chocolate are due to health problems which are usually caused by other ingredients that are added to chocolate candy.  Sugar, milk, and other fillers cause cavities and weigh gain.  Raw cacao also has loads more antioxidant power than processed chocolate and helps regulate blood sugar which is a big plus for people who have diabetes.  Dark chocolate antioxidants have been shown to even dissolve the plaque that is deposited on the inside of blood vessels which reverses heart disease and also lowers blood pressure.

Health boosts from kiwi fruit!

A study at Rutgers University claimed that, ounce for ounce, kiwi is the world's most nutrient dense fruit.

A study in Italy showed that children suffered less from coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath at night when they consumed 5 to 7 servings of citrus or kiwi weekly.  People who suffer from asthma had impressive results from consuming kiwi, even if only eating kiwi 1 or 2 times a week.  Kiwi fruit can also help to reduce the risk of heart disease by reducing triglycerides and lowering the chance of forming blood clots.  A study concluded that kiwi can heal the body from damage to the DNA which also helps protect against cancer.  1 serving of kiwi contains 230% of the daily value for vitamin C which increases iron absorption, helps heal wounds,  boosts the immune system, and removes toxins from the blood stream.  Kiwi also contains zinc, which is good for the health of you teeth, hair, nails, and skin.

Health benefits of sweet potatoes

Mashed or fried, sweet potatoes impress the taste buds and are a staple in home cooking around the world. What is even more impressive than the flavor is the impact sweet potatoes can have on your health and well being!

Digestive tract:  Research shows that sweet potatoes may help remove heavy metals such as mercury and arsenic from the digestive tract.  They also have a good amount of dietary fiber which promotes a healthy digestive system.

Anti inflammatory:  Consuming sweet potatoes lowers inflammation in brain tissue and nerve tissue throughout the body.  The vitamin C, beta carotene, manganese, and vitamin B-6 in sweet potatoes are very effective at treating internal and external inflammation.

Blood sugar:  The abundance of chlorogenic acid in sweet potatoes may help decrease insulin resistance.  Sweet potatoes also are high in fiber which can help to manage cholesterol and blood sugar levels, while the carotenoids present in sweet potatoes help your body respond to insulin and stabilize your blood pressure.

Antioxidants:  Anthocyanin, the antioxidant pigment which is abundant in the starch of sweet potatoes, may protect the body against oxygen radicals and heavy metals.  Sweet potatoes are also loaded with vitamins A and C, which are thought to protect against several types of cancer.  Storage enzymes found in the sweet potatoes adds to the overall antioxidant punch of this food.  

Arthritis:  Sweet potatoes contain vitamin C which helps to maintain collagen and prevents some forms of arthritis.  Beta-cryptoxanthin, also found in sweet potatoes, helps guard against inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, reducing the risk by up to 50% in some cases.
