Food that helps you

Everybody's dream is to live a healthy life.
Can something help?
What can actually reduce the risk of cancer?

1) Tea. Green Tea.
It proved to have the antioxidant EGCG and also helping the growth of (good)intestinal bacteria. These inhibit the growth of bad ones and since up to 70% of the immune system is located in the digestive tract drinking as much as a few cups a day will help to increase immunity.

2) Chili peppers.
They increase the metabolism, keep the blood thin and are able to release endorphins.

3) Ginger.
Particularly effective to prevent colon cancer.

4) Blueberries.
The colour is a sign.
All purple or dark blue colored vegetables and fruit are very healthy.
They prevent cancer and heart diseases.

5) Cinnamon.
It is rich in antioxidants that inhibit blood clotting and bacterial growth.

6) Sweet potatoes.
They are one of the best food.
They contain glutathione, an antioxidant that can enhance nutrient metabolism and immune-system health.

7) Tomatoes.
Especially the new kind, the purple tomato.

8) Figs.
The fiber in figs can lower insulin and blood-sugar levels, reducing the risk of diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
But if you already have diabetes avoid eating them, since their high content in sugar.

9) Mushrooms.
They reduce the risk of cancer.

Also these can reduce the risk of cancer, thanks to polyphenols called ellagitannins, which give the fruit its color.
