A concern for the environment can be the difference between good and poor health. Noticed any random symptoms lately? Exposure to harmful chemicals can severely impact all areas in your body. Chemical sensitivity can lead to nausea, congestion, chest pain, allergies, asthma, and much more. You can be exposed to a variety of chemical contaminants from almost everywhere: cars, your home, factories, landfills etc.
Foods for the Brain
- Blueberries – Blueberries can protect the brain from oxidative stress. Reducing this stress can slow the process of aging and age-related illnesses such as Alzheimer’s Disease.
- Pomegranates – This fruit is rich in antioxidants, which protects the brain from the harm of free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that look for an electron in the body to pair with. A pair with an electron causes cell and tissue damage.
