    The natural benefits and curative properties of banana

    In the traditional medicine of India and the ancient Persia this golden fruit is regarded as nature's secret of perpetual youth. To this day, banana is known for promoting healthy digestion and creating a feeling of youthfulness. They help promote the retention of calcium, phosphorus and nitrogen - all of which then work to build sound and regenerated tissues. Banana also contains invert sugar, which is an aid to youthful growth and metabolism.
    Intestinal Disorder
    The banana is used as a dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and blandness. It is said to contain an unidentified compound called, perhaps jokingly, 'vitamin U' (against ulcer). It is the only raw fruit which can be eaten without distress in chronic ulcer cases. It neutralizes the over-acidity of the gastric juices and reduces the irritation of the ulcer by coating the lining of the stomach. Ripe banana are highly beneficial in the treatment of ulcerative colitis, being bland, smooth, easily digestible and slightly laxative. They relieve acute symptoms and promote the healing process.
    Constipation and Diarrhea
    Banana are of great value in constipation and diarrhea as they normalize colonic functions in the large intestine to absorb large amounts of water for proper bowel moments. Their usefulness in constipation is due to their richness in pectin, which is water-absorbent and this gives them a bulk producing ability. They also possess the ability to change the bacteria in the intestines - from the harmful type of bacilli to the beneficial acidophilus bacilli.
    Dysentery
    Mashed banana together with little salt is a very valuable remedy for dysentery. Ripe bananas are also very useful in dysentery of children, but they should be thoroughly mashed and beaten to cream before use in these cases.
    Arthritis and Gout
    Bananas are useful in the treatment of arthritis and gout. A diet of bananas only for three or four days is advisable in these conditions. The patient can be given to eat eight or nine bananas daily during this period and nothing else.
    Anemia
    Being high in iron content, bananas are beneficial in the treatment of anemia. They stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood.
    Allergies
    The fruit is very useful for those who are allergic to certain foods and who suffer in consequence from skin rashes or digestive disorders or asthma. Unlike other protein foods, many of which contain an amino-acid which these persons cannot tolerate and which causes allergy. bananas contain only benign amino-acids which in most cases are not allergic. The fruit, however, does cause allergic reactions in certain sensitive persons and they should avoid it.
    Kidney Disorders
    Bananas are valuable in kidney disorders because of their low protein and salt content and high carbohydrate content. They are useful in uremia, a toxic condition of the blood die to kidney congestion and dysfunction. In such cases, a diet of bananas should only be taken for three to four days, consuming eight to nine bananas a day. This diet is suitable for all kidney troubles, including nephritis.
    Urinary disorders
    Juice from banana stem is a well-known remedy for urinary disorders. It improves the functional efficiency of kidney and liver thereby alleviating the discomforts and diseased condition in them. It clears the excretion organs in the abdominal region of toxins and helps to eliminate them in the form of urine. It has been found to be of great help in the treatment for the removal of stones in the kidney, gall bladder, and prostate. It is advisable to mix this juice whenever possible with the juice of ash pumpkin.
    Over-weight
    A diet consisting of bananas and skimmed milk is considered an effective remedy for weight reduction. In prescribed course of diet treatment, the daily diet is restricted to six bananas and four glasses of skimmed milk or buttermilk made from skimmed milk for a period of 10 to 15 days. Thereafter green vegetables may be introduced gradually, reducing the intake of bananas from six to four. This regimen or prescribed course of diet treatment can be continued till the desired results are achieved. Bananas are suitable for weight reduction as they contain practically no sodium.
    Menstrual Disorders
    Cooked banana flower eaten with curd is considered an effective medicine for menstrual disorders like painful menstruation and excessive bleeding. Banana flower helps increase progesterone hormone which reduces the bleeding.
    Burns and wounds
    A plaster is prepared by beating a ripe banana into a fine paste. It can be spread over burns and wounds and supported by a cloth bandage. It gives immediate relief. The young tender leaves of banana tree form a cool dressing for inflammations and blisters.

    Apricots Are Very Healthy and Are an Excellent Choice for Diet

    The apricot is often overlooked in favor of other common fruits such as the

    apple, pear, orange or banana. But the apricot is just as healthy as those other

    fruits, in some cases even healthier. Aside from the many health benefits of

    the apricot, it is also a wonderful diet food, providing a large amount of

    healthful nutrition to the body as well as keeping down caloric intake, as they

    are very low in calories as compared to other fruits (only about 50 calories for

    three apricots)!

    The variety of nutrients found in apricots are very beneficial for good eyesight

    and also help to prevent heart disease and other ailments. Apricots are also

    rich in powerful antioxidants, such as Lycopene, helping to promote wellness

    and strengthen the immune system. The healthy fruits are also a good source

    of fiber, beneficial for healthy digestion.

    Dried Apricot

    Dried apricots have an even higher concentration of vitamins and nutrients,

    but are also slightly higher in carbs. Apricots can be enjoyed in cakes and

    pies, with ice cream or sorbets and yogurt, as a jam or jelly, used as a sauce or

    as a fruit topping for salads, cereal, pancakes, and other foods.

    Uses and Tips to select Avocado

    The use :

    1. The flesh of a ripe avocado soothes sunburnt skin. Just cut the fruit in half and rub it gently over the affected areas.

    2. Eat an avocado everyday if you’re recuperating from sickness and are trying to regain your strength.

    Tips :

    1. Select heavy, unblemished fruit. Most market will sell unripe and hard avocados. So after you bought one, allow it to ripe between 3 to 6 days.

    2. If avocado yield slightly to gentle pressure, it’s ready to be eaten.

    3. If you need to speed up the ripening process, place avocados in a paper bag with apple or banana. Never put avocado in a fridge since it will make the ripening process significantly slower.

    benefits. Prized for their sweet, pungent flavor, blackberries are a good source of vitamin C, folic acid,

    fiber, potassium, calcium and iron. Next to black raspberries and blueberries, blackberries have one of

    the highest levels of antioxidants, natural substances that slow the aging process and guard against
