The health minute – forever Magnesium !

This time I am sharing another tip with you related to our general health; it is quite common, but maybe some don’t know it yet. It is a mineral and very useful anti-stress trick and it is called Magnesium. You can take it either as a supplement or water effervescent mineral or directly from food (these are the most useful but it is still contained in others) which is actually the best way to absorb it:

  • green-leaf vegetables
  • nuts and seeds
  • pumpkin
  • fatty fish (mackerel, salmon, tuna, etc.)
  • soya beans
  • avocado
  • brown rice
  • banana
  • dark chocolate (minimum 50% of cocoa)
  • dairy products with low-fat
  • dry fruits
  • aromatic herbs
  • green onion
  • tofu cheese

I think it is well-known that this mineral is essential for the good functioning of the body at many levels (heart, nervous system, muscles, etc.) so become his friend and take it daily, if possible, from food and drinks (any mineral water or special types like those who have a higher content in Mg.). I think that you could create such a good plan for you that covers your needs, without waiting for when you feel dizzy or stressed to run to the health shop. More than that, anytime you feel that something is not well with you, either physically or emotionally, take my honest advice and do not wait as it could get worse! Small health problems get easily solved with a minimum of resources and this is the best way to deal with your health and longevity hope.

Stay healthy in peace and joy! Best wishes to all 🙂

The health minute – Minutul de sanatate

I know you will laugh but it is fine; I also did not know all these interesting details about the common…..carrot. The truth is that it contains plenty of good things for our health – not only the well-known vitamin A. Listen here my friends: it contains also vitamin C and many antioxidants, fibers and also B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9 (folate- good also for pregnant ladies and small children), vitamin E, vitamin K, Ca, Fe, Mg, K, Mn, Zn and some natural water. It helps the immunity, the heart, the blood circulation, it stimulates the metabolism, decreases the cholesterol and fights against several types of cancer. Plus, it boosts our optimism on rainy days with its amazing and cheerful colour. Have I convinced you? One simple carrot, of course cutivated healthily, is a health-bomb. If you want to enjoy your life (for sure you must have many reasons to live long and to live happily) put the carrots on your list; I use them in juices, salads, cooked meals or just simply washed as a snack at the beach (ooo, who will have the best suntan? 🙂 Stay healthy and crunch carrots !

Stiu ca veti rade insa nu e problema; nu stiam nici eu de toate beneficiile morcovilor. Insa adevarul este ca banalul morcov este un miracol pentru sanatatea noastra si nu doar datorita beta-carotenului (vit. A). Puteti sa va alegeti din lista ce va ajuta mai bine: contine vitamina C si multi antioxidanti, fibre si de asemenea vitaminele B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9 (folat – bun pentru viitoarele mamici si pentru copilasi), vit. E, K, Ca, Mg, K, Mn, Zn si ceva apa naturala. Morcovul sustine sistemul imunitar, buna functionare a inimii, circulatia sangelui si stimuleaza metabolismul, scade nivelul colesterolului si lupta impotriva mai multo tipuri de cancer. De asemenea, datorita culorii lui tonice, ne stimuleaza cu siguranta si optimismul 🙂 in zilele ploioase. V-am convins macar putin? Un simplu morcov, cultivat fara chimicale, este o bomba plina de sanatate. Daca vreti sa va bucurati de viata si sunt convinsa ca vreti, puneti morcovii pe lista voastra de instrumente magice. Eu ii folosesc in sucuri, salate, mancaruri gatite sau pur si simplu cruzi ca o gustare la plaja (haha, cine va avea cel mai frumos bronz?) Sanatate multa tuturor si rontaiti morcovi!
