large portion of vitamin C and keep bones strong and help promote good digestion. Your body needs  manganese for your bones. The body uses it to produce collagen a tough connective tissue to make  bones strong. Drinking pineapple juice or eating it is a great source of manganese. A cup of
pineapple chunks or juice is what you need to add to your healthy diet.

Pectin Jellies and Jams

Heart disease is a major problem for all humans along with high cholesterol. Doctors have been  working on lowering both for years. Getting more pectin in your diet is a great way to lower both. Since pectin dissolves into a gel molecules of fat and cholesterol get trapped before they get into the blood stream. Pectin isn't digested bacteria in the intestine start eating it up which also interrupts the production of cholesterol. In other words it traps the fat before it gets into the blood stream.

Parsley for your health

Parsley contains two compounds myristicin and apiol that can help the flow of urine which helps  remove infection causing bacteria from the urinary tract. It can also help prevent premenstrual  bloating because it increase urine flow. You should add it to your healthy diet as it is as good as  many healthy foods or greens. It contains vitamin C just like oranges and grapefruit. Parsley also contains folate which is a B vitamin which produces red blood cells.  You can get parsley dried or fresh. Both are good but fresh is better. You can buy fresh parsley and  use it in salads instead of just a garnish. Italian flat leaf has a stronger flavor then curly. Dried  parsley is easy to store in a bottle and both should be stored in a cool place preferably in a air
tight container.

Yeast infections may also be caused by dietary indiscretions and stress

Yeast infections and Candida or yeast are normal inhabitants of the skin, mouth, genital tract. Our bodies contain billions of different microorganisms that have different functions in the body. Many fight harmful bacteria that can enter our body and fight off infections. Many perform helpful function to keep you healthy. They will only harm you when your body gets out of balance which allows these organisms to grow beyond healthy levels.
Many people today suffer from yeast infections or candida. This has been cause by the overuse of antibiotics, sugar, contraceptives and steroids. It has been estimated the 60 million people a year suffer from candida or yeast infections. The most common cause of candida is the use of oral antibiotics which also kill the good bacteria of the colon. Taking these medications should be watched and consulted with your doctor.
Yeast infections may also be caused by dietary indiscretions and stress. If you eat sugar in excess it will feed the yeast and upset the normal balance in your system. Yeast overgrowth can also be caused by poisons like mercury, mold and mold spores. When women have an overgrowth of yeast in their colon it can spread to their genital tract and produce vaginities. You can then try a virginal cream to help stop the infection. It is best that you see your doctor for treatment. If you wait to long it can spread to other parts of the body. It can also show up in the mouth. Candida can cause problems throughout the body and suppress the immune system.
