Healthy Foods for Woman : Healthy Foods for Woman and Nutrients Every Woman Should Add to Her Diet (part II)

Healthy Foods for Woman : Diseases such as heart disease, breast cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s constitute some of the leading causes of death in women

and while diet may not prevent these ailments entirely, it can definitely make a difference in minimizing your risk.

Healthy Foods for Woman such as:

Cinnamon

Here’s the better “cinnamon challenge”: Eat more cinnamon.

But cinnamon contains proanthocyanidins

And cinnamaldehyde,

Two compounds with anti-inflammatory

And antimicrobial properties

That could help to prevent Alzheimer’s and other neurological disorders, according to some studies.

Dark Chocolate

No woman’s life is complete without chocolate — unless you’re one of those wacky women who claim to hate it.

Chocolate has innumerable health benefits that stem from the fabulous flavonoids in the beans.

These antioxidants can keep blood platelets healthy,
Unclog your arteries,
And lower your blood pressure.

Eggs

Eggs are essential for (non-vegan) women looking to get the most nutritional bang for their buck.
They’re super inexpensive.
Egg yolks contain choline,
A nutrient used for the functioning of all cells
that could also reduce your risk of breast cancer.

Figs

A serving of figs has more potassium than even the largest banana

And you need potassium to lower your blood pressure,

Ease anxiety,

And even stave off early death.

Garlic

Garlic has more than 70 phytochemicals,

all of which have health benefits of their own.

Most notably, heavy consumption of garlic has been shown to lower the risk of ovarian cancer.

Tomatoes

Tomatoes have vitamin A, which helps to fight acne and maintain a smooth complexion.

They also have lycopene,

an antioxidant that boosts your immune system, protects your vision, and can combat breast cancer.
