This makes you smarter

Sure, exercise is good for your health. We all know that. But exercise is also a scientifically proven way to make yourself smarter. According to Gretchen Reynolds, author of the soon to be released The First 20 Minutes, a book about the science of exercise, recent research shows that exercise can help your brain resist physical shrinkage and improve cognitive flexibility. “Exercise,” she writes in this New York Times article, “…does more to bolster thinking than thinking does.” Here’s why. Your brain is a tissue and so like any other tissue, abuse, lack of use, and especially age causes its performance to decline. Sometime in our late twenties the hippocampus, the portion of our brains devoted to learning and memory, loses about a percent per year in total volume.

Effects of Celery on High Blood Pressure

Celery when eaten raw or juiced does have a proven effect on lowering high blood pressure. And just like many drugs, it carries side effects with it. But you may be surprised by these. Research has proven that the chemical 3-n-butyl phthalate targets stress hormones in the body. Stress is the key factor in high blood pressure, regardless of its source: biological stress (illness or injury), emotional stress, or environmental stress. The stress hormones cause blood vessels to constrict, and blood pressure goes up. Phthalide lowers the chatecholamines, which are the stress hormones, thereby keeping the blood vessels healthier and blood pressure closer to normal. While blood pressure reducing drugs have a list a mile long of weird, frustrating, and even dangerous side effects, celery’s laundry list of side effects are much more acceptable. *Celery is packed with potassium. This mineral is a diuretic and naturally eliminates excess fluid in ...(Read More)
