With the world thinking of their health and always exercising, the raw food diet is only a step away. There are many benefits in starting this diet. Stories of people having great results abound. In a raw food diet, you consume only unprocessed and uncooked plants. Such things are raw vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds. Benefits surround this diet and offer many outlooks on life. When you begin this diet, you can increase levels of energy rather quickly. With a raw food diet, you are opening your body to a new and fresh idea. When you have a new and fresh idea, you have more ways to be able to stay healthy. Other health benefits for are:
1. Energy increase– Whether you think so or not, eating raw vegetables and nuts are really healthy for you. Even so, they give you energy for their vitamin content and nutritional value. We need energy if we are going to do the things we want to. Having energy increases our performance in our every day lives.
2. Improved digestion– With the raw food diet, the way that are food is digested is processed through a different way. This way is more efficient and productive for a fast metabolism. When we eat things that are not healthy, it tends to create a blockage and the foods are not processed fully. This causes the weight gain. With the raw food diet, the foods are broken down more and promote weight loss.
3. Reduced risk of heart disease– Any diet that prevents heart disease is worth looking at. Our hearts are the most vital thing in our body. With a bad heart, we can’t do the things that we used to and it really diminishes you life expectancy. To be healthy is the goal with a raw food diet.
Raw food diets are the best you can do for your bodies. Some may argue that this is just another scam to get money, but with the money that you spend buying junk food is a lot more than you would be if you bout more raw vegetables and nuts. There is always a need to improve our self image. The way we feel about ourselves reflects to other people. Keep a healthy spirit and always try your best to have a healthy body.

Image by debra solomon Making choucroute using lacto-fermentation is an effective method for storing summer foods through the winter until the spring. Ingredients: thinly shredded green cabbage, salt Method: Mix, massage, weigh down the cabbage so that it can sit under its own brine. Wait 10-20 days until it sours to your taste, store in a cool place for up to 6 months. Probiotic foods like sauerkraut/choucroute/kimchi have all of the benefits of raw vegetables but the nutrients are more 'bio-available' to your body. Lacto-fermented foods are healthier than raw foods. I exhibited and demonstrated lacto fermentation at the biennial to propose a return to this traditional method for storing locally produced food in situ - in the communities that grow the produce.

Nó có thể cao tới 3 m, với tán lá dày, có gai. Lá thường xanh, dạng đơn hình trứng-hình mác, dài 5-10 cm, với mép lá nhẵn. Các hoa mọc thành tán với 2-5 hoa cùng nhau, mỗi hoa có đường kính 1-1,5 cm, với 5 cánh hoa màu hồng hay đỏ. Quả chín có màu đỏ tươi, đường kính 1 cm, chứa 2-3 hạt cứng. Nó là loại quả mọng và có vị ngọt, chứa nhiều vitamin C và các chất dinh dưỡng khác. Mặc dù nó tương tự như quả anh đào, nhưng loài cây này không có quan hệ họ hàng gì với anh đào thực thụ (chi Prunus). Quả tương tự như quả chùm ruột. Trồng và sử dụng Quả của nó ăn được và được tiêu thụ rộng rãi trong khu vực nguồn gốc của nó, tại các khu vực này nó được trồng rất nhiều do chứa hàm lượng vitamin C cao. Trong thập niên 1950, một công ty sản xuất thực phẩm trẻ em cho rằng đối với trẻ em thì nước táo dễ chịu hơn so với nước cam. Công ty cũng cho rằng việc cho thêm chỉ một giọt nước sơ ri vào 230 ml nước táo sẽ cung cấp lượng vitamin C ngang với lượng tương đương nước cam. Tại Puerto Rico, sơ ri được coi trọng đến mức ngành hải quan đã áp dụng một số biện pháp phòng ngừa đáng kể để ngăn chặn việc xuất khẩu cây sơ ri. ________________________________________________ **** WIKI en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malpighia_emarginata Synonyms : Malpighia biflora Poir. Malpighia glabra L. Malpighia punicifolia L. Malpighia retusa Benth. Malpighia emarginata is a tropical fruit-bearing shrub or small tree in the family Malpighiaceae. Common names include acerola, Barbados Cherry, West Indian Cherry and Wild Crapemyrtle Distribution M. emarginata can be found in the southernmost parts of the contiguous United States (southern Florida and the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas), Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and South America as far south as Peru and Minas Gerais in Brazil. It is cultivated in the tropics and subtropics throughout the world, including the Canary Islands, Ghana, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Zanzibar, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, India, Java, Hawaii, and Australia Description Acerola is an evergreen shrub or small tree with spreading branches on a short trunk. It is usually 2–3 m (6.6–9.8 ft) tall, but sometimes reaches 6 m (20 ft) in height Leaves The leaves are simple ovate-lanceolate, 2–8 cm (0.79–3.1 in) long, 1–4 cm (0.39–1.6 in), and are attached to short petioles. They are opposite, ovate to elliptic-lanceolate, and have entire or undulating margins. Top sides are dark green and glossy. Flowers Flowers are bisexual and 1–2 cm (0.39–0.79 in) in diameter. They have five pale to deep pink or red fringed petals, ten stamens, and six to ten glands on the calyx. There are three to five flowers per inflorescence, which are sessile or short-peduncled axillary cymes Fruit The fruit is a bright red drupe 1–3 cm (0.39–1.2 in) in diameter with a mass of 3–5 g (0.11–0.18 oz). Drupes are in pairs or groups of three, and each contains three triangular seeds. The drupes are juicy and very high in vitamin C and other nutrients. They are divided into three obscure lobes and are usually acid to subacid, giving them a sour taste,but may be sweet if grown well Uses As food The fruit is edible and widely consumed in the species' native area, and is cultivated elsewhere for its high vitamin C content. There is 1677.6 mg of vitamin C in 100 g of fruit. In the 1950s, a manufacturer of baby food[which?] decided that apple juice was milder for infants than orange juice. The company claimed that a drop of acerola juice in an 8 oz. can of apple juice provided the amount of vitamin C of an equal amount of orange juice. A detailed nutrition facts analysis shows Acerola juice does contain 32 times the amount of vitamin C in orange juice (over 3000% as much), supporting the claim. A comparative analysis of antioxidant potency among a variety of frozen juice pulps was carried out, and included the acerola fruit. Among the eleven fruits' pulps tested, acerola was the highest scoring domestic fruit, meaning it had the most antioxidant potency, with a TEAC (Trolox equivalent antioxidant activity) score of 53.2 mmol g. Cultivars have been developed to improve growth of the plant, disease resistance, and the size and flavor of the fruits. Sweet cultivars include 'Manoa Sweet', 'Tropical Ruby', and 'Hawaiian Queen', while 'J.H. Beaumont', 'C.F. Rehnborn', 'F. Haley', 'Red Jumbo', and 'Maunawili' are sour cultivars. The cultivars 'A-1', 'B-15', and 'B-17' are recommended for Puerto Rico, while 'B-17' and 'Florida Sweet' are recommended for Florida. Absolut Vodka released Absolut Los Angeles, a limited-edition spirit flavored with acerola, Açai, pomegranate, and blueberry, in July 2008. Acerola flavour is also used in Tic Tac dragées. In Vietnam, the most famous variety is from Gò Công district, Tiền Giang province Other uses Acerola is a popular bonsai subject because of its small leaf, fruit and fine ramification. It is also grown as an ornamental and for hedges Ecology M. emarginata is a host plant for the caterpillars of the White-patched Skipper (Chiomara asychis), Florida Duskywing (Ephyriades brunneus), and Brown-banded Skipper (Timochares ruptifasciatus). Larvae of the Acerola Weevil (Anthonomus macromalus) feed on the fruits, while adults consume young leaves **** RAINTREE.COM : Click on link to read more, please.... www.rain-tree.com/acerola.htm PLANT CHEMICALS Until the plant camu-camu appeared on the scene, acerola was considered the richest known source of natural vitamin C. Oranges provide 500 to 4,000 parts per million (ppm) of vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, whereas acerola has been found in tests to provide ascorbic acid in a range of 16,000 to 172,000 ppm1,2 Acerola can contain up to 4.5% vitamin C, compared to 0.05% in a peeled orange. The vitamin C content of acerola varies depending on ripeness, season, climate, and locality.3 As the fruit begins to ripen, it loses a great deal of its vitamin content; for this reason, most commercially-produced acerola is harvested while still green. Acerola also provides twice as much magnesium, pantothenic acid, and potassium as oranges. It also contains vitamin A (4,300 to 12,500 IU/100 g, compared to approximately 11,000 IU for raw carrots) and thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin in concentrations comparable to those in other fruits. Thus far, 150 other constituents have been identified in acerola.4 In addition to ascorbic acid and the other vitamins mentioned above, acerola contains 3-methyl-3-butenol, dehydroascorbic acid, calcium, dextrose, diketogulonic acid, fructose, furfural, hexadecanoic acid, iron, limonene, l-malic acid, phosphorus, protein, and sucrose. BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITIES AND CLINICAL RESEARCH Acerola has not been the subject of much clinical research since it is mainly consumed as a food, rather than used as an herbal remedy. In one in vitro study, the leaves, bark, and fruit of acerola were reported to have antifungal properties. New findings show that acerola may potentiate the benefits and actions of other supplements (the cholesterol-lowering actions of soy and alfalfa, in one study). Recent research in cosmetology indicates that vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger for the skin, and acerola extracts are now appearing in skin care products that fight cellular aging. In addition to its vitamin content, acerola contains mineral salts that have shown to aid in the remineralization of tired and stressed skin, and its mucilage and proteins have skin-hydrating properties and promote capillary conditioning. CURRENT PRACTICAL USES In North America, acerola is used for its high content of vitamin C. Dried acerola fruit extracts can now be found in tablet form and as an ingredient in many over-the-counter multivitamin products in the United States as a natural form of vitamin C. Traditional Preparation: In South America, acerola juice is freely consumed like most other fruit juices. Consumers in the United States should take acerola supplements based on the vitamin C content provided in the products available in the marketplace. The adult recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for vitamin C is 60-75 mg daily. Therapeutic dosages of vitamin C for colds and flu, general illnesses, and debility are 1-5 g daily. Contraindications: A study published in 2002 reported that acerola caused allergic reactivity similar to that of the well-known allergen latex. Those who may be allergic to latex may also be allergic to acerola in supplement form or to its addition in various fruit juices. Large dosages of vitamin C can cause diarrhea. ACEROLA PLANT SUMMARY Main Preparation Method: juice Main Actions (in order): antioxidant, nutritive, astringent, antifungal Main Uses: for its natural high vitamin C content for colds/flu (for its vitamin C content) for skin care/anti-aging (for its antioxidant and vitamin content) as an overall health tonic (tones, balances, strengthens) as a heart tonic (tones, balances, strengthens) Properties/Actions Documented by Research: antioxidant, antifungal Other Properties/Actions Documented by Traditional Use: anti-inflammatory, astringent, cardiotonic Cautions: High dosages of vitamin C may cause diarrhea.

Here are my top 10 benefits:
1. Increased energy – this one kept me raw longer than any other benefit! I noticed a huge increase in energy when I went raw, and then another energy increase when I went low fat raw. This is definitely the top of my list 🙂
2 Healthy weight loss or ideal weight maintenance. This is another one that I’ve experienced personally. I easily lost the weight I had gained during pregnancy after adopting a raw food diet.
3. Prevent disease. I believe eating this way is one of the best changes you can make to prevent the big chronic diseases that our society suffers from, such as Cancer, Diabetes, and Heart Disease.
4. Toxin -free – well nearly. This diet definitely contains far less toxins than any other way of eating! This is great for things like weight loss and disease prevention.
5. Skin. Another one of my top reasons of going raw. I have always suffered from bad skin, but my skin has definitely improved with the raw food diet. I am still not 100% happy with my skin, but then again, I haven’t been 100% raw in a while either 🙂
6. No restricting calories. This one is great! It is wonderful to know that I will maintain a healthy weight without every having to worry about limiting my food intake.
7. Look years younger. I am not at the age yet where this is showing yet, but I am glad to be on the wagon so that I always stay young!
8. No time spent in the kitchen. Another fav! It is so easy and simple to eat this way. My family lives on smoothies and fruit bowls all day. These types of meals take minutes and you don’t have anything to clean up after – win win!
9. Easier to exercise. Not only do you have more energy so you feel like exercising, but doing the workouts themselves get so much easier because your blood can carry more oxygen to your cells making your endurance go way up!
10. Motivated to complete life goals. This was one of the most surprising benefits for me, but definitely one I love! I went from sad and depressed and not wanting to do much, to full of life and energy and ready to take on all of my long term goals!
Lots of love,
