This Health-Boosting Plant Can’t Be Found In A Grocery Store

Samantha Keene – In a world increasingly governed by our desire to eat more nutritiously, live more healthfully, and consume more responsibly, deciding what’s for dinner can be a tricky endeavor indeed. Health food trends, like fashion trends, rise and fall at increasing speeds, so that yesterday’s humble leaf becomes today’s kingly kale, seemingly overnight.

We wait for the media to tell us what the next “it” ingredient shall be, and grudgingly accept that, whatever ‘it’ is, it will likely be costly. And we neglect to look to the ultimate source of nutritional wisdom — nature itself — in our search. More importantly, we associate edible food with grocery store shelves and plastic packaging. We have forgotten, collectively, that real food grows in the ground, requiring no nutritional labels or USDA approvals.

There are, of course, dangers associated with consuming straight from the earth. Some plants are toxic, others hallucinogenic (this particular trait being obviously desirable to some, though likely not when searching for one’s breakfast), and we must approach foraging, as with farming or any other life skill, armed with at least some basic knowledge — knowledge which mothers and fathers used to pass on to sons and daughters, that duty now long-forgotten.

Fortunately, many health food warriors and sustainability advocates are doing some of the work for us, searching their own fields and backyards for solutions to the many crises plaguing the food system today — GMOs, factory farming, and too-long supply chains, to name a few — and empowering us, in the process, to do the same. Kale and spinach are delightful, to be sure, but the human body, just like the human appetite, thrives best when offered a variety of foods, each working together to fill in the nutritional gaps of the other.

Many options exist for those looking to diversify their plates (and their palates), but I wish to highlight just one exciting plant which has been garnering some much-deserved attention recently.

Purslane

Purslane (portulaca oleracea) — also known as duckweed, fatweed, parsley, pussley, verdolagas, and wild portulaca — plagues gardeners around the world, being a persistent and hardy ‘weed’ species which can grow anywhere that has at least a two-month growing season. Once established, it can be difficult to remove, making its recent renaissance as a desirable ingredient a blessing in disguise.

It originated in Persia and India and has since spread to the rest of the world, with many cultures still using it in dishes regularly. In a beautiful exploration of purslane’s many culinary traditions, New York Times writer Marlena Spieler describes some of the ways it is used around the world today:

In Mexico and California, verdolaga is eaten with pork and tomatillos; at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market in San Francisco, Steve Sando, owner of Rancho Gordo New World Specialty Food in Napa, tucks a few whole stems into his big fat carnitas and tomatillo tamal. Farmers in Provence sell pourpier in wild mesclun. In Greece, little old ladies forage from field to field hunting glistrida, and in Turkey semizotu is mixed with garlicky yogurt and chopped into fetching salads with ripe tomatoes. In Galilee, I was told that “regelah” was delicious in salads — regelah being Hebrew for foot, since purslane is a plant typically found right at your feet.

Described as tangy and bright, purslane leaves make a welcome addition to many refreshing summer meals, like salads and sandwiches, and can also be steamed, stir-fried, or stewed. It also makes a wonderful replacement for traditional greens in pesto, with its high-water content replacing much of the oil usually necessary in this sauce.

(Scroll to the end of the article for a roundup of some of the most popular purslane recipes around the web.)

Health Benefits

Useful and tasty it might be, but for something to compete with the likes of kale and the now-ubiquitous collard greens, a vegetable had better pack an impressive nutritional wallop. And purslane does not disappoint. Research has shown it to be remarkably high in antioxidants, featuring two different types of betalain alkaloid pigments (the reddish beta-cyanis and the yellowish beta-zanthins), both of which double as anti-mutagens as well.

Purslane also contains more Omega-3 fatty acids than any other leafy vegetable, with 100 grams of the fresh leaves providing about 350 mg of alpha-linolenic acid. This makes it an excellent choice for vegans and vegetarians, whose usual recourse in the absence of fish in their diet is most often supplementation. Purslane’s unusually high Omega 3 content was studied extensively in an 1896 New England Journal of Medicine article titled “Purslane: A Terrestrial Source of Omega-3 Fatty Acids.

Purslane also boasts significant amounts of fiber, vitamins (A, B, C), and minerals (iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium, manganese). Perhaps more impressive still is its content of melatonin — the hormone responsible for regulating our body clock and sleep cycle — which, as Dr. Bahram Tadayyon notes in his comprehensive book The Miracle of Vegetables: The Scientific Facts About Nuritional Properties and Medicinal Values of Vegetables, is “several-fold [higher] than any other vegetable or fruit.” Purslane therefore can be consumed in order to promote a more restful sleep.

3 Super Berries That Cause Cancer Cells to Self-Destruct…

3 Super Berries That Cause Cancer Cells to Self-Destruct…

By Daily Superfood Love

www.thetruthaboutcancer.com

Super foods are not a new concept in the health and nutrition world, but we are proud to create the term “super berries.”

What is a super berry?

Super berries contain high amounts of specialized nutrients and powerful antioxidants that create apoptosis (pronounced a-pop-toe-ses).

Apoptosis, often called “cellular suicide,” is a natural process creating the fine balance between cell death and cell renewal. It’s a crucial system used by the body to get rid of cells that are abnormal, mutated, or no longer function properly.

Cancer cells alter and grow in a way that avoids the self-destruction caused by apoptosis. Traditional forms of cancer therapies such as radiation, drug therapy, and chemotherapy can’t tell the difference between healthy cells and mutated cancerous cells – so all fast growing cells are destroyed, whereas apoptosis only targets cancerous cells.

Scientists have now discovered that certain super-foods and super berries can help prevent cancer and/or trigger natural cell death against cancer cells.

Since emerging evidence proves diet influences the cancer process before it begins, it is crucial you discover which foods can make a difference between preventing cancer or accelerating the spread of cancer.

The David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California studied extracts of six popular berries: blackberry, black raspberry, blueberry, cranberry, red raspberry, and strawberry for their ability to stimulate apoptosis of the COX-2 colon cancer cell line.

The researchers also evaluated these berries for the prevention of oral, breast, colon, and prostate tumor cell growth. They learned black raspberry and strawberry extracts had the most effective apoptosis inducing effects.

Strawberries and raspberries – also contain a unique phytochemical called ellagic acid, which has the power to prevent skin, bladder, lung, esophagus, and breast cancers.

3 Apoptosis Inducing Super Berries That Target Cancer Cells

#1. Black raspberries – don’t let anyone tell you black raspberries are blackberries. They are not. The easiest way to differentiate between the two is where the stem attaches to the berry; black raspberries are hollow in the center like raspberries while blackberries have a white core. Black raspberries are rich in anthocyanins.

Studies have shown that this type of potent antioxidant found in berries, grapes, and red cabbage − give fruits and vegetables a blue, red, or purple color. These powerful compounds fight diseases caused by oxidative stress and free radicals including certain types of cancer, cardiovascular disease and chronic inflammation.

Cervical cancer is the second most common female cancer worldwide. One of the challenges in treating cervical cancer is that it is difficult to manage pre-invasive and invasive lesions. Recent studies from the College of Public Health at Ohio State University, Comprehensive Cancer Center in Columbus, Ohio, discovered that black raspberries prevent cervical cancer cell growth and tumor formation. Furthermore, they inhibit inflammation and induce apoptosis in esophageal and colorectal cancer tissues. Black raspberries also contain chemo preventive compounds, including: vitamins A, C, E, folic acid, ellagic acid, and quercetin that can help prevent strokes.

#2 Strawberries – The humble and widely loved strawberry has many benefits. Strawberries have proven to prevent heart attacks in women. In China, 36 participants at high risk for developing esophageal cancer ate strawberries for six months and researchers found that consuming strawberries prevented esophageal lesions from developing into tumors. What a powerful berry!

The volunteers drank freeze-dried strawberry powder mixed with water, since the freeze-dried process concentrates the benefits of the berries. Researcher Tong Chen discovered that 29 out of 36 participants had lesions revert from moderate to mild after six months of consuming two ounces of strawberries a day. The ellagic acid in strawberries deactivated specific carcinogens and decreased the replication of cancer cells.

#3 – Jamun berry (or Indian blackberry) – These juicy purple berries of the native Indian plant, Eugenia jambolana, known as Jamun, jambolan, or black plum are available in the United States, Florida, and Hawaii. The fruit has a sour-sweet taste and due to its tart nature, is usually eaten with a sprinkling of salt.

Traditionally Jamun is used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat digestive disorders, as an antimicrobial, and to control diabetes. Jamun is also a good source of potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, and vitamin C. The College of Pharmacy at the University of Rhode Island analyzed the extract of Jamun berries. They found it exhibited pro-apoptotic effects against breast cancer cells but not towards normal breast cells.  This study reveals the potential benefits of Jamun berry extract against breast cancer.

Breast cancer accounts for more than 1 in 4 cancers diagnosed in women in the United States. Since the role of plant extracts are now emerging as equally effective therapies, these preventative strategies are definitely worth exploring as a safe and effective way to naturally prevent cancer.

These 3 powerful cancer-fighting berries are an essential part of your cancer prevention diet and have key nutrients that can reduce your risk of a stroke, prevent blood clots, and much more. Why not enjoy a bowl of these delicious berries right now?

9 Ways to Combat Spring Allergies

9 Ways to Combat Spring Allergies

Pollens can be an allergy trigger

Pollens can be an allergy trigger

Allergy season is here. And if you are one who suffers from allergies, you know just how irritating the pollen from trees, grasses and weeds can feel when they trigger an immune response from you.

These allergic responses may indicate you have a compromised immune system. Your immune system goes into hyper-drive responding to the allergen, or particles that are foreign to your body. A whole cascade of chemicals are responsible for making you suffer from allergies, but histamines are the most commonly known. Histamines cause the airway to constrict and cause the tissues to release fluid. As a result you may encounter hives, runny nose, itchy eyes, sneezing, wheezing and a sore throat or cough.

 

9 Health Tips for Springtime Allergy Relief:

 1. Foods are Powerful Medicine

Since foods can be your body’s most powerful medicine, it is important to eliminate high allergy foods from the diet. High allergy foods are especially challenging for the body when the immune system is already in high gear.

Wild Caught Salmnon

Wild Caught Salmon

An anti-inflammatory diet will help improve spring time allergies. Foods to avoid are mucus forming foods, especially dairy. Grains can also be very inflammatory for the body. Some great allergy fighting foods include those rich in omega-3 fatty acids such as wild caught salmon, grassfed meats and eggs, walnuts, and flax oil. Probioitics are also beneficial for boosting your immune system.

 

2. Quercetin Helps

Quercetin is a flavonoid that reduces histamine levels. It is a mast cell inhibitor. Mast cell produce histamine and result in the allergy symptoms. Quercetin also heals the gut and is anti-inflammatory. Foods with high levels of quercetin are apples and onions.

Try making a homemade applesauce with fresh apples, diced ginger (excellent anti-inflammatory) and cinnamon stick.

Designs for Health makes a helpful supplement called HistaEze™ which contains quercetin, nettle leaf and vitamin C. This can be ordered directly from The Lamb Shoppe’s Designs for Health E-Store or purchased at our shoppe.

 

3. Vitamin C

Take at least 1000-3000 mg daily of vitamin C. Note that too much vitamin C will give loose stools, so if needed take less. Rose hips are loaded with vitamin C, so go ahead and add these to that homemade apple sauce too. Rose hips are available in the dried herb section at The Lamb Shoppe.

 

4. Nettle Tea or Tincture

Mother Nature has a way of balancing itself. While pollens are filling the air, a natural remedy is growing nearby—Stinging Nettle! Nettles have amazing anti-inflammatory and anti-allergy properties.

Nettle

Nettle

Early spring is the perfect time to pick fresh Nettle and make your own infusion from it. Simply pick the young Nettle plants (you may want to use gloves) and loosely fill a quart jar with the fresh greens. Then fill with hot water. Cover and steep for at least 1 hour. Drink this tea daily during allergy season. Try to drink 1 quart per day for maximum benefits. Not only will this provide natural antihistamines, it is loaded with vitamins and minerals.

In addition, you can steam fresh Nettles and eat them as a steamed green. I love making nettle soup with homemade chicken broth. If picking fresh Nettles is not your forte, you can use dried Nettle leaf (1 cup per quart jar and steep for at least 6 hours, strain and drink). The Lamb Shoppe also has Nettle tincture which can easily be taken as drops under the tongue. Call 320-587-6094 if you want us to mail out a Nettle tincture for you.

 

5. Neti Pot/Saline Spray

For a traditional way to clear out the sinuses, try this easy method. The neti pot is a small pot designed with a special spout used to irrigate the sinus cavity. If you are new to this, just tilt your head to the side and pour the solution in one nostril until it flows out the other, repeating the process on the opposite side. Although it may be uncomfortable at first to put water in your nose, after you have mastered this technique, you will find it works very well. Prepare a saline rinse with distilled water and a little unrefined sea salt. If you have a tendency to develop sinus infections, try adding a drop of colloidal silver or Lugol’s iodine. If the neti pot seems too daunting, try using a saline nose spray. It is made the same way, but you spray it in your nose instead. All of these items may be purchased at The Lamb Shoppe.

 

6. Local Raw Honey

Many people use local raw honey to reduce seasonal allergy symptoms. Make sure your source is local and that it actually is raw. Raw honey will tend to crystallize and be thick. Take one teaspoon a day and see if it helps you. The Lamb Shoppe has local raw honey.

 

7. Adrenal Supportive Herbs

Adrenal supporting herbs are typically adaptogens. Adaptogens strengthen the body by making you more resilient to the negative effects of stress. Examples of adrenal supporting herbs are Holy Basil, Ashwaganda, Ginseng, Rhodiola, Schizandra, Reishi Mushroom, and DGL Licorice.

A really nice supplement for adrenal support is Adrenotone which contains a combination of standardized herbs and nutrients which are known for rejuvenating the adrenals. .

 

8. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is one of those incredible foods that helps almost everything. It is a fermented product and is alkalizes the body while providing good amounts of potassium and other minerals. If you are using apple cider vinegar for allergy relief, take it consistently and add a bit of raw honey and lemon juice to make a healthful, good tasting drink.

 

9. Melaleuca, Lemon, Lavender,  Peppermint or  Eucalyptus Essential Oils

Studies have shown that some essential oils can be beneficial for seasonal allergies. Try diffusing one or more of these oils in the air. Melaleuca or tea tree oil has been found to reduce swelling due to histamines. A 2012 study showed that topical application of lemon oil resulted in a reduction of mast cells. Apply one drop of peppermint oil of the base of the neck two times a day. Lavender or Eucalyptus maybe diluted and applied to the sinuses and the bottom of the feet.

5 AMAZING USES FOR DANDELIONS

5 AMAZING USES FOR DANDELIONS

Rather than being frustrated with Dandelions invading your lawn this year, why not embrace them? They offer amazing medicinal properties and are tasty wild food too. In case you didn’t know, European settles came to America with Dandelion seeds in hand because they didn’t want to miss out of not having this precious plant with them in the New World. We have our forefathers to thank for this golden treasure. As a child, I remember my grandfather religiously made Dandelion wine for one of his health tonics.

 

So, what exactly should you do with the multitude of Dandelions? To start with, only harvest Dandelions from lawns that have not been sprayed in several years. Stay away from high traffic areas where there may be contamination from pets or other offenders. If all else fails, you can purchase the greens at your local food coop. However, in my opinion, that takes the fun out of the “hunt”.

 

Five Ways to Use the Dandelion:

 

1. Pick and eat the young leaves for a spring tonic.

The tender young spring leaves are loaded with calcium, vitamin C, vitamin K1, potassium, magnesium and beta-carotene. Simply add leaves to your salad if you are new to wild foods as they have a pleasant bitter flavor. The bitter flavor detected by your tongue starts and entire cascade of events happening in your body. Digestive benefits begin to take place. Firstly, the bitterness of the greens causes your body to increase the saliva flow which, in turn, breaks down carbohydrates. Protein digestion is aided by increased HCL production in your stomach and fat digestion benefits by increased bile flow from the gallbladder and liver. All of these reactions are a result of that bitter flavor of the Dandelion leaf. The Dandelion leaf also acts as a diuretic. In other words, they will help you remove excess fluids and dampness from your body. By either making a tea from the leaves or eating the greens, you can experience the diuretic properties of this plant.

2. Eat the flowers.

Dandelion fritter flowers are a classic for wild food enthusiasts. It is both fun to collect the flowers and easy to do as an appetizer or snack that the whole family will love. This recipe has two variations: sweet or savory.

Dandelion Fritter Flowers Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 cups of fresh picked (washed) dandelion flower
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups milk

Instructions

  1. Mix the milk, flour and eggs and beat until blended well.
  2. Warm some olive oil in a skillet on the stove (keep at medium heat).
  3. Holding the underneath of the flowers, dip into the batter until totally covered in the fritter batter then place into skillet, flower side down.
  4. Once they are brown, flip and brown the other side. If need be, continue flipping until the batter coating is light brown.
  5. Remove from oil and allow excess oil to soak onto a towel or paper towel.
  6. Eat plain or drizzle with maple syrup, honey, or even roll them in icing sugar while they are still warm. Best eaten right away.

Two Variations

For sweet: add one tablespoon of honey (or to taste) plus 1/2 teaspoon to 2 teaspoons total of the following herbs: cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, nutmeg.

For savory: add a pinch of thyme, rosemary, oregano or other savory herbs. You may also want to add another dash of salt.

3. Make the flowers into a relaxing massage oil.

Dandelion oil can be used to relieve muscle stiffness or achy joints. It’s really easy to make. Just fill a small mason jar with fresh dandelion flowers. Pour the oil over the dandelion flowers and fill the jar to the top. Cover with a lid and let sit in a dark, cool spot for 6 weeks. Strain the dandelion flowers out of the oil with cheese cloth and transfer the oil to a new clean jar. Store it in a cool dark place. If you put it in the refrigerator, it should last well over a year.

 

 

4. Build your bones with Dandelion shoots, roots and leaves infused in apple cider vinegar.

Dandelion infused vinegar is filled with minerals, especially calcium, boron and other bone building essentials. Use the vinegar for making salad dressings, taking shots, or adding a couple of teaspoons to your drinking water. This is one of THE best ways to get good vitamins and minerals for healthy bones.

Dandelion Infused Vinegar

Ingredients

  • 1 large jar with lid
  • As many Dandelions (shoots, root and leaves) as will fit in the jar
  • Organic apple cider vinegar

Instructions

  1. Thoroughly wash the Dandelion leaves, and scrub the dandelion roots, then chop both into medium size pieces.
  2. Fill a large jar with Dandelion parts.
  3. Pour the vinegar until the dandelions are covered.
  4. Shake well, and leave in a cupboard for six weeks.
  5. Strain through an unbleached coffee filter or cheese cloth into clean, sterilized jars.

5. Eat the stems to cleanse the gall bladder and balance blood sugar.

In Maria Treben’s book, Health through God’s Pharmacy, she talks about how good Dandelions are for disorders of the pancreas, liver, gall, spleen and blood. Maria encourages eating 10 fresh Dandelion stems for 3 weeks to reduce blood sugar levels, act as a gall bladder cleanse for stones, and for gout, rheumatism and to improve skin conditions.

The stems are chewed slowly and will taste bitter to start with, but only get better the longer you chew them
