Health Benefits

Romaine Lettuce

* Extremely high in vitamin K, romaine lettuce helps to prevent blood loss during injuries and promotes blood clotting in open wounds.

* Rich in vitamin A and beta carotene, romaine lettuce helps to promote healthy skin, hair and mucus membranes. It also helps to reduce the risk of cataracts.

* Romaine lettuce is high in vitamin C which helps to maintain healthy blood vessels and controls cholesterol levels.

* The large amounts of folic acid found in romaine lettuce helps with the proper development of a fetus and also in the production of red blood cells.

* The fibre found in romaine lettuce helps to bind bile salts in the colon and removes them from the body by stimulating bile production.

Ginger

* Like the banana, ginger has so many health benefits that I am inspired to incorporate this spice into my daily diet.

* Research has shown that ginger can help to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer. Ginger is so good that the cancer cells end up by attacking and killing themselves.

* Ginger has a calming effect on the bowel and digestive system and helps to reduce the effects of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

* Ginger helps to slow down the loss of brain cells that could lead to Alzheimer's disease.

* Improper digestion of food leaves it fermenting in your digestive tract, but ginger helps to digest your meal better by stimulating digestive juices.

* Not only does ginger help you feel fuller for longer, but it aids weight loss by acting as a fat burner.

* Ginger helps your muscles to recover better after a cardio workout and allows you to workout everyday.

* If you tend to feel lethargic during the day, the likely cause is your blood sugar levels. Ginger helps you to stay focused, alert and on task.
