Beetroot itself is a nitrate rich vegetable which is noted as a fairly potent blood pressure reducing agent. Those who are finding the stress of their lifestyle and work is slightly overpowering their general health, try including beetroot in your meals, juices and wherever it fits your schedule, to benefit from these supported effects.
Unfortunately, we find that staying on top of our fruit and vegetable intake can be extremely difficult due to our work, travelling and socializing commitments. As a nutritionist I recommend to aim for 6-7 fist sized portions of vegetables per day, thus not including starchy vegetables. Be adventurous with your choices and try to vary your intake from all areas of the vegetable section in the supermarket each week. Things like smoothies, and cold pressed juices are not only extremely efficient ways to reach these recommendations, but also can be extremely tasty.
Black seed, nigella or kalonji, is also known as the “seed of blessing” as it is considered to be one of the greatest healing herbs of all times. The small black seeds are got from kalonji bushes, which are grown widely throughout India. The seeds are about the same size as sesame seeds, though they have a more triangular instead of oval shape. Apart from being a wonderful medicine, kalonji is a superb spice, used to flavour a variety of traditional dishes including pickles.
