It’s February, It’s Heart Month! I encourage you all to think about your heart this month and the things that contribute to its health. Heart Disease is the leading preventable killer in America. Cholesterol and High Blood Pressure are preventable health hazards that can be reversed or decreased. The best way to keep yourself from having heart disease is to PREVENT it. Get your total cholesterol including LDL and HDL ratios checked at least once a year and check your blood pressure regularly. Cholesterol can block blood from moving through the body, high blood pressure can compound that by trying to force more blood through a narrower space. Exercise helps to increase blood flow through the body, strengthens the heart muscle so it pumps more blood per contraction, decreases the risk of blood clots and helps to send oxygen throughout the body including the brain. A diet high in fiber and low in saturated fat can contribute to improved heart health as well. Decrease your risk for heart disease…get checked, get good nutrition, and get moving!!!
Giving You A Hand in Your Health
First noted by Alexander the Great in his conquest of India in 327 BC, the banana is America’s top-selling fruit.
Contrary to common perception, the banana actually comes from the world’s largest herbaceous flowering plant – not from a tree. Bananas grow in bunches called “hands”; a group of hands make up a “stem,” which can weigh over 100 pounds. Nutritional profile. Bananas are known to be rich in potassium. A medium banana can contain 400 – 600 miligrams of it. A fruit this size also has 2 grams of protein and 4 g of fiber, is very low in calories and fat, and provides a multitude of vitamins and minerals.
For Your Health
Bananas are known to help treat anemia; lower blood pressure; resolve bowel issues and constipation; boost brain power and energy levels; fight depression; soothe heartburn; replenish the body during hangovers; prevent morning sickness; soothe mosquito bites; calm nerves; helps with seasonal affective disorder; and decrease stress.
Buying, eating, and unusual uses
Fresh bananas are available year-round. They ripen best off the plant. The more ripe they are, the sweeter they taste. After you’ve eaten a banana, you can use the skin in place of plastic wrap to keep food fresh and give it a unique taste. The peel can also be used to polish shoes!
The banana tree is sacred in many cultures. It is associated with fertility and prosperity for Hindus. Malay women bathe with banana concoctions after childbirth. In India, the banana flower is regarded as a sign of goodluck and is often tied to the head for important ceremonies, such as weddings…
