Watercress & Workouts

A new study published in the British Journal of Nutrition reveals that eating watercress can prevent damage caused by high intensity exercise and help maximize benefits of a tough workout.

Study leader Dr. Mark Fogarty explained, "Although we are all aware of how good exercise can be for our bodies...the increased demand on the body for energy can create a build-up of free radicals which can damage our DNA. What we've found is that consuming a relatively small amount of watercress each day can help raise the levels of important antioxidant vitamins which may help protect our bodies, and allow us to enjoy the rewards of keeping fit."

Ten healthy men, average age 23 years, participated in the study. Dr Fogarty said, "We put participants through short bursts of intense exercise and found that those who had not eaten watercress were found to have more DNA damage than those that did... What was also fascinating is that the effect of eating watercress was not reliant on an accumulative build-up in our bodies. Those that ate the vegetable just two hours before exercise experienced the same benefits as those who had consumed the vegetable for eight weeks."

Nakia's Peace of Life

Nakia is a true inspiration of living life to the fullest through complete whole food nourishment. She was introduced to live/raw foods by her brother and says, “I loved the vibrant colors and new taste that my tongue was experiencing... I wanted more.”

Not long after, Nakia came across a wonderful raw food business in Greensboro, NC. She noticed a sign on the door about the effects of dead things that we consume and how internally this causes us to decay inside and out. Right then and there she stopped eating meat. She says, “The information at that point in my life resonated with me in a way that there was no struggles with giving up this once somewhat desirable meat.”

Nakia then ventured on the beginning of her raw journey. She says, “This all began March 2011 and it has been marvelous and very educational for me. I began making all types of things from strawberry cashew pies, oatmeal cookies, kale chips, herbal teas, ice cream (made of cashew cream), and more. I couldn't wait to share with all I came in contact with. Besides the wonderful taste the benefits, eating this way increased my energy levels, I dropped 20 lbs, and found an increased amount of love for self.”

Anyone looking for something fun and exciting to add or accompany their already wonderful lives can find Nakia available to provide support, motivation, and preparation tips along the way.
