Which Tea Is the Healthiest?
Written by Lindsey Goodwin Lindsey Vee Goodwin sipping tea Updated 10/02/19 .thespruceeats.com
“..White tea, for instance, has the highest concentration of antioxidants because it is the least processed tea. By this standard, it might be considered the “healthiest” of them all.

As far as antioxidants are concerned, white tea is followed by jasmine tea, green tea, then black tea. Each tea will also have varying amounts of caffeine, magnesium, and theanine—a factor in the feeling of tea drunkenness.

8 Evidence-Based Health Benefits of Kombucha Tea
healthline.com
“…It’s made by adding specific strains of bacteria, yeast and sugar to black or green tea, then allowing it to ferment for a week or more (1Trusted Source).

During this process, bacteria and yeast form a mushroom-like film on the surface of the liquid. This is why kombucha is also known as “mushroom tea.”

This blob is a living symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast, or a SCOBY, and can be used to ferment new kombucha.

The fermentation process produces acetic acid (also found in vinegar) and several other acidic compounds, trace levels of alcohol and gases that make it carbonated (2Trusted Source).

A large amount of bacteria also grow in the mixture. Although there is still no evidence for the probiotic benefits of kombucha, it contains several species of lactic-acid bacteria which may have probiotic function. (3Trusted Source).

Probiotics provide your gut with healthy bacteria. These bacteria can improve many aspects of health, including digestion, inflammation and even weight loss.

For this reason, adding beverages like kombucha to your diet might improve your health in many ways…”

8 Health Benefits of Yerba Mate (Backed by Science) healthline.com
“…Yerba mate is a traditional South American drink that’s gaining worldwide popularity.

It’s said to have the strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the joy of chocolate.

Here are the top 8 health benefits of yerba mate….

Interestingly, the antioxidant power of yerba mate tea seems to be slightly higher than that of green tea (2Trusted Source).

What’s more, yerba mate may contain seven out of nine essential amino acids, in addition to nearly every vitamin and mineral your body needs (1Trusted Source, 3).

However, the tea contains very small amounts of these nutrients, so it’s unlikely to make a large contribution to your diet on its own…

3. May Enhance Physical Performance

..In fact, in one study, those given one 1-gram capsule of ground yerba mate leaves right before exercise burned 24% more fat during moderate-intensity exercise (12Trusted Source)….

4. May Protect Against Infections

Yerba mate may help prevent infections from bacteria, parasites, and fungi.

Mugwort is a plant that grows wild in various parts of the world. A bitter green, it is a great detoxifier for the liver, as it increases bile production. It treats many issues such as depression, anxiety, sleep issues, and menstruation issues. It can also cause vivid dreams!
Note: It is not recommended for women who are pregnant, as it can stimulate the uterus.
Some people will smoke it, and it can also be used for smudging.
I just picked a bunch and steeped the leaves in a tea strainer. Next, I’ll try juicing it to see how it may increase the potency.

Artemisinin is an active constituent of the plant Artemisia annua, also known as sweet wormwood or Qinghaosu. Artemisinin is a sesquiterpene lactone. Artemisinin and other sesquiterpene lactones have been demonstrated to modulate immune system function and inflammation.*

Artemisinin may impact the microbial ecosystem of the digestive system, genitourinary tract, blood, and beyond, as it has been shown to have broad microbial-balancing actions.* It also may impact biofilms which make infections such as Candida albicans resistant to treatment.*

As pharma giants around the world race to find a cure for the corona-virus, Madagascar says it already has one. But there’s heated debate on social media. Africans accuse the West of being condescending towards their faith in traditional medicine. Madagascar’s President Andry Rajoelina promotes so called “Covid Organics” or CVO. It’s an anti-coronavirus tea made from the plant artemisia annua. The herbal ingridient of the drink is medically proven to be effective against malaria. Now, it’s being distributed for free on the island against Covid-19 – and also shipped on bulk to other African countries. But the World Health Organisation is yet to prove the efficacy of the plant. Some Doctors say untested herbal brews could be a risk, rather than a remedy.
Ghanaians also say they have a remedy. Ghana is one of the leading countries for confirmed COVID-19 cases in Africa – right behind Africa’s most populous country, Nigeria, with more than 5,700 cases. The disease presents an opportunity for some of its countries’ medicine men and women, who believe that they have the cure for the coronavirus.
Is traditional medicine really be the answer to treat COVID-19?

Differentiating Between Watermelons
We tend to use five different terms to differentiate between watermelon varieties. These five terms refer to the characteristics of the melon rather than the direct variety. This allows us to combine multiple watermelon varieties under one category. The five terms used to describe watermelons are:

A Seeded watermelon –
Used to describe a basic watermelon that is round or oblong and weighs between 15 t0 45 pounds. These watermelons contains noticeable black seeds.

A Seedless Watermelon –
Hybrid watermelons that are the most popular due to their seedless nature. These watermelons are generally around the 15 pound mark. Seedless watermelons often have small and easily edible white seeds.

Some varieties of watermelon that fall into this category include:

Crimson
Bijou
Jack of Hearts
King of Hearts
Millionaire
Nova
Queen of Hearts
Trio
A Miniature Watermelon –
The smaller variety of watermelons that has a thin rind.

Watermelon varieties such as the Sugar Baby and the Tiger Baby fall under this category.

An Orange or Yellow Watermelon –
Varieties of watermelon that lack lycopene often fall under the orange or yellow watermelon category.

Some watermelon varieties that fall under this category include:

Yellow Baby

Diabetes – Watermelon Board watermelon.org
‘…Watermelon is a great inclusion in the diabetic diet. It is a source of vitamins, such as vitamins A and C; minerals, such as potassium; and fiber. It’s low in calories, since 92% of watermelon is just good-for-you water, so it’s a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth without overindulging in excess sugar and calories.

Granted, watermelon has a high glycemic index (GI) score of 72, but this natural, unprocessed fruit remains a healthful food because of another factor called the “glycemic load.” This factor compares a food’s GI score with the amount of calories and carbs in the food,. The glycemic load is a much better indicator of a food’s ability to prevent or contribute to disease, since a food that has a large amount of carbs AND dramatically raises blood sugar levels obviously increases the chances of weight gain more than a food that might temporarily raise blood sugar levels, but has few calories. For example, a potato has a high glycemic score and it packs a bunch of carbs, while watermelon has a high GI score, but few calories or carbs. The former will increase the chances of those extra calories being funneled into fat cells, but watermelon just fills you up, without filling you out. (Ever hear of anyone getting fat on watermelon? Not!)..”

(A control group of riders consumed a sports beverage containing a similar level of total carbs.) The researchers determined that the antioxidant capacity in the riders’ bloodstreams was significantly increased post-exercise through consumption of the watermelon puree. ..

between 3–6 cups of watermelon juice per day over a period of several weeks. What the researchers found was a steady and well-maintained level of citrulline in the bloodstream of the participants, yet an increased level of arginine. They concluded from these findings that citrulline from the watermelon juice had undergone conversion into arginine, while still leaving plenty of citrulline to stabilize blood levels in the study participants. This conversion provides us with even more evidence for watermelon as a fruit that can lower our risk of high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes since arginine deficiency—especially chronic moderate or temporarily serve deficiency—has been linked to increase risk of both health problems. ..”

“Recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH), or recombinant bovine somatotropin (rBST), is a synthetic growth hormone that has been commercially available for 20 years. This seemingly promising drug was developed by agricultural biotech company Monsanto to boost milk production by up to 30 percent. Unfortunately, what seemed like a dream come true for farmers had unwanted side effects in humans and dairy cows alike.

Dairy cows injected with rBGH have a significant increase in health problems, including udder infections (commonly treated with antibiotics), a greater risk of lameness and serious animal reproductive problems.

This is the healthiest milk for you – YouTube

“..Hindustan Times
Published on May 20, 2018
Full fat, whole cream, double toned milk – if the different types of dairy milk were not enough to confuse you, today you also have nut-based and plant-based milks. As the vegan community grows in number, almond milk and soy milk have also seen a surge in popularity. “Milk is a high-quality protein, due to presence of all essential amino acids. These amino acids are required for tissue building and repair, playing an important role in immune function, taking part in various biochemical reactions and are vital for metabolism. Protein from dairy helps reduce muscle breakdown post exercise, due to its rich amino acid profile,” says Swati Bhushan, chief clinical nutritionist, Fortis Hiranandani Hospital, Mumbai. According to Bhushan, a glass of milk (200 ml) is packed with approximately 6 – 7 grams protein and 200- 300 mg of calcium, meeting about 30 – 50% of our daily requirement of calcium. Naturally occurring calcium from dairy products is readily absorbed by our bodies. Calcium helps build strong bones and teeth, plays an important role in improving bone density and in turn decreases the risk of osteoporosis…”

“..The difference between cow and goats milk

More of us are becoming increasingly aware that cows’ milk may not suit us and have started to seek an alternative that is better suited to the needs of our body. Goats’ milk is nutritionally closest to cows’ milk than other alternatives and yet it has certain physical properties that set it apart, which may impact on digestibility and health1. Many people who perceive they have issues with cows’ milk can drink goats’ milk without any problems, and even say that their symptoms (such as eczema; asthma; bloatedness; constipation; digestive discomfort and catarrh) are reduced or go away altogether. More comprehensive scientific research is needed to confirm these anecdotal benefits, but there are a number of studies that have focused on the differences between the two milks.1,2,3,4,5..”

Dairy Free

The 5 Healthiest Dairy-Free Milk Alternatives by: Yuri Elkaim yurielkaim.com
“..Many holistic healthcare practitioners advise against including dairy in your diet (myself included), and suggest using alternatives to milk instead.

But on the flip side, we’re constantly told that dairy is the best source of calcium on the planet.

As a result, it’s become one of the most frequently debated health and nutrition tips: Should you really be avoiding cow’s milk?

Calcium is a mineral we need for healthy bones and teeth, not to mention a healthy cardiovascular system. But is cow’s milk really the best way for humans to obtain this nutrient?

Let’s find out by taking a closer look at how cow’s milk works in the body. ..”

Top 5 Healthiest Milk Alternatives
1. Almond Milk

Since almonds are a great plant-based dietary source of calcium, they make an ideal healthy milk alternative…

2. Coconut Milk

Coconut is what I refer to as a “clean and lean” fat because it’s from a plant-based source, and is rich in essential fatty acids…

3. Hemp Milk

Hemp makes another great milk alternative to dairy, and is extremely rich in plant-based protein, and omega 3 essential fatty acids. Omega 3’s aid in digestive health, and aren’t found in cow’s milk, unless the cow has been grass-fed. (And even still, the amount of omega 3 fats found in hemp hearts are superior to dairy products.)

….
4. Rice Milk

Rice milk is an ideal milk alternative for those who are sensitive to cow’s milk and nuts. While it’s lower in protein than nut milk, it still offers plenty of B vitamins and minerals such as selenium and manganese.

5. Cashew Milk

Cashew milk has become another popular alternative to cow’s milk because of it’s versatile, creamy texture. Cashews are also a popular plant alternative to use in recipes for vegan cheeses and other mock-dairy recipes.

Fit Food: the Benefits of Turkey

“While turkey gets its day in the sun (er, the oven) on Thanksgiving, the bird is sometimes overshadowed by more popular choices like chicken or beef the rest of the year. But this nutritional powerhouse is a great way to add variety to your daily diet — without tacking on extra fat and unwanted calories. Check it out:

One 3.5 oz serving (about the size of a deck of cards) of skinless turkey breast packs 30 grams of protein—but only 161 calories and 4 grams of fat.
Turkey is loaded with B vitamins, phosphorus, potassium, iron, and zinc — those are some serious nutrients. Plus it’s rich in selenium, an antioxidant necessary for thyroid metabolism and boosting immunity.
It also contains tryptophan, an amino acid that triggers serotonin production and helps you catch some zzz’s.

Food Fight!: Turkey White Meat vs. Dark Meat
By: Dana Angelo White, M.S., R.D., A.T.C. foodnetwork.com
“..

It’s the perpetual Thanksgiving debate: turkey legs or breast meat? We all have our taste preferences, but which one is healthier?

White Meat

Ditching the turkey skin is the first step to a lighter meal. Poultry skin is high in calories and fat. Keep the skin intact to cook the bird (it helps retain moisture) but remove before digging in.

Because this portion has a lower fat content, the white meat can dry out more easily. Less fat also means more protein, but don’t get too excited: The protein content of white meat is only slightly higher than dark meat. Cuts of lean protein like turkey breast are also rich in vitamins and minerals like niacin, vitamin B6, iron, zinc and selenium.

Dark Meat

The higher fat content of the legs, wings and thighs (aka dark meat) imparts a lot of flavor, plus helps the meat stay moist. A 3-ounce portion of dark meat is slightly higher in cholesterol and contains an additional 20 calories and 2 grams more fat than an equal portion of white meat. The good (and often surprising) news is the type of fat; dark meat contains predominantly the heart-healthy mono- and polyunsaturated kinds. Dark meat also boasts a high mineral content and is more plentiful in iron, zinc and selenium.
