Overview

This book reveals that the magical healing power of foods extends well beyond the vitamins and minerals they contain. You'll learn about phytonutrients, the thousands of natural substances with names like quercetin (found in apples), lycopene (found in tomatoes and apricots), and sulforaphane (found in cruciferous vegetables) - many of which are more powerful than vitamins in protecting our health. These substances have the ability to slow or even stop many of the most serious health threats facing Americans today, from cancer to heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke. Researchers suspect that some phytonutrients can stop - or even reverse - many of the signs of aging. Of course, different foods contain different mixes of healing powers. With Prevention's New Foods for Healing, you'll discover how to choose your protection. You'll learn how to use dozens of the most-powerful healing foods to prevent and treat over 50 specific health threats. You'll find out how much of these foods you need to eat to get the healing benefits and even how to prepare them to get the maximum healing power. Plus, there are 150 recipes that feature the healing foods and are just brimming with health and great taste - making this the most complete, up-to-date guide to the healing power of foods.
