Blueberries Keep Away the Blues by T.J. Connelly
Blueberries can possibly keep the health blues away in the same way that apples keep the doctor away, as suggested by what we are learning about them. They are only beaten by newly known exotics like Brazil's acai, which is expensive, hard to obtain, and usually only sold as a frozen pulp or in juices. The dark blue color contains phenols called anthocyanins, which are flavanoids possessing strong antioxidant characteristics.
Blueberries also contain considerable levels of vitamin C, manganese, and fiber. They are low in calories and won't cause blood sugar spikes. They are good for the heart since the anthocyanins soothe the blood vessels. The dark pigment may also lower blood cholesterol. They also are anticancerous. The blueberry antioxidants have been shown to prevent colon and ovarian cancer. Something in berries is seems to protect against some of the more unpleasant aspects of Alzheimer's disease. They also contain lutein which helps night vision as well as the prevention of age related macular degeneration. Blueberries also contain substances which prevent bacteria adhering to the bladder wall, thus preventing urinary tract infections.
Blueberries full of fiber. If you have ever gone on a blueberry eating binge, you know that they promote healthy bowel movements. The dark blue or purple pigment will be imparted to your feces after you evacuate your bowel. Don't be alarmed because this is normal.
Fresh blueberries can be found in the supermarket but they are usually costly. You can get a better deal if you choose the frozen ones.

If You Want A Fat Juicer You Can Trust Then Pick Me by Al Martin
The juicer has come a long way from the simple utensil that your parents used to squeeze orange juice from an orange when you were younger. In fact, it is now one of the most essential appliances for many kitchens across the country. We have learned so much in the way of why we need to consume juices of various types. Now, with technology, we have some of the best equipment to make drinking that juice easier, more flavorful, and even more cost effective. All this from a juicer? Count on it and so much more.
There are several brands of juicers on the market, but what you will find is excellent features in all of them. Many of them offer a wide range of essential settings in which to use them. And, they all have something else in common as well. They deliver high quality juice just the way you want them to.
A Closer Look At The Options
Taking a closer look at juicer options will tell you that there is much to consider in your purchase. Don't just head to the local store to purchase whatever they have on their shelves. On the web, you will find a wide range of high quality products that really will knock your socks off in quality and cost. Some of these machines are so easy to use that it is no harder to squeeze a glass of juice as it is to open the carton to pour some pre made juice.
Some of the things that you will find useful in juicers are the following. Did you know that many of the juicers you can purchase can be purchased to allow different types of pulp settings? Some will allow you to add ice to them to create more of an iced treat than juice? Others will provide you with a quick glass of juice that really pulls as much juice out of the fruit that is possible. Still there are more features. Some of these will help you to allow for easy clean up. Others will help you to mix various fruits to create smoothies and shakes.
Why Purchase A Juicer?
Many people do not get it. Why purchase a juicer when you can purchase juice already squeezed? The simple fact of the matter is that juice is full of essential nutrients that your body needs. When it is stored, these products break down and offer less of a value to your diet. Likewise, they also lose their flavor the longer they sit. Freshly squeezed juice is tastier and healthier for you.
Take a few minutes to check out the options that are out there. Find those juicers that offer just what you want to gain from that orange this time. And, look for easy to use equipment that is also easy to clean and maintain. What a great way to start the day with a juicer to give you the best juice out there.
