Ladies, how to boost your immune system in winter time…while staying gourmet?
Here a super secret I learned when I was studying about plants and aromatherapy.
Everybody heard about Essential Oils…all of you heard about floral waters (also named hydrosol)….did you know that you can also ingest floral water for your well being?
Here is a great cocktail recipe with thyme floral water.
For 2 glasses:
-2 celery branches
-1 table spoon of thyme (thymus vulgaris) floral water
Mix all the fruits and vegetables in a blender, or better, in a juicer, which will preserve vitamines.
Add the thyme floral water…
Serve your cocktail chilled
Why is it healthy?
Thyme Floral Water:
The thyme floral water is perfect to prevent winter illnesses because it is boosting your immune system.
You can have a 3 weeks cure of that cocktail. If you want to make a second cure during the winter time, you need to wait at least 2 weeks between 2 cures.
Beets are perfect for women:
One of the first known uses of beets was by the ancient Romans, who used them medicinally as an aphrodisiac. And that’s not just urban legend – science backs it up. Beets contain high amounts of boron, which is directly related to the production of human sex hormones.
Potassium, magnesium, fiber, phosphorus, iron; vitamins A, B & C; beta-carotene, beta-cyanine; folic acid. These are but a few of the many nutrients, vitamins and minerals that can be found in beets. Beets are particularly beneficial to women whom are pregnant, as the vitamin B and iron are very beneficial to new growth cells during pregnancy and replenishing iron in the woman’s blood.
They are a wonderful tonic for the liver, works as a purifier for the blood, and can prevent various forms of cancer.
Beets contain betaine, the same substance that is used in certain treatments of depression. It also contains trytophan, which relaxes the mind and creates a sense of well-being, similar to chocolate. Beets can also lower your blood pressure.
Beets are used as a stomach acid tester
How in the world does that work? If you are eating a lot of beets or beet juice, and your pee turns pink, guess what? You have low stomach acid. Pee still clear? Ratchet it up and get juicing (use the greens too)! Nutritionists use beets and beet juice to test stomach acid levels, so stay ahead of the curve by adding beets to your diet now.
Beets are a high source of energy
At the same time they are low in calories and high in sugar (although the sugar is released into your system gradually, as opposed to chocolate). Very few foods found in the natural world are as beneficial as beets in this regard.
