An apple a day…

appleThere is a saying that, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” how true is this? Let us examine what are the benefits and facts we can get in an apple.  Apple contains antioxidants, also high in fiber and vitamin C.

Apples are loaded with vitamin C. Almost half of an apple’s vitamin C content is just under the skin, so it’s a good idea to eat apples with their skins. Apples contain insoluble fiber, which provides bulk in the intestinal tract. The bulk holds water that cleanses and moves food quickly through the digestive system.

In addition to digestion-aiding insoluble fiber, apples have soluble fiber, such as pectin. This nutrient helps prevent cholesterol from building up in the lining of blood vessels, which in turn helps prevent atherosclerosis and heart disease. In a 2011 study, women who ate 75 grams of dried apples every day for six months had a 23 percent decrease in bad LDL cholesterol, said study researcher Bahram H. Arjmandi, professor at and chair of the department of nutrition at Florida State University. Additionally, the women’s levels of good HDL cholesterol increased by about 4 percent, according to the study.

Ang financial system ng ating mundo ay napaka imperfect, maraming tao ang nag take advantage dito. May mga corrupt na gawaiin, pagnanakaw ng mga savings na pinaghirapan ng ating mga kababayan at kung ano ano pang mga katiwalian.

Maraming mga katuruan sa Bibliya ang dapat natin malaman at maunawaan ukol dito.

1. ANG PAG-IBIG SA SALAPI (LOVE OF MONEY)
1 Timothy 6:10 says “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”

2. ANG LAHAT AY SA PANGINOON (ALL BELONGS TO GOD)
Psalms 24:1 “The earth is the Lord’s , and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.”

3. ANG KAPANGYARIHAN AY GALING SA KANYA (GOD HAS POWER)
Deuteronomy 8:18 “But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.”
Wag nating kalimutan na ang Diyos lang ang nag pahintulot sa atin to get wealth.

4. IBIGAY ANG PARA SA KANYA (GIVE UNTO HIM)
Mark 12:17 KJV says “And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.”

Malachi 3:10 says “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”
Ibigay ng tama at ang dapat para sa panginoon.

Watermelon

watermelon

Citrullus lanatus is a plant species in the family Cucurbitaceae, a vine-like flowering plant originally from West Africa. It is cultivated for its fruit.

I love this fruit especially during summer. Its refreshing sweetness that quench your thirst.

Nutritionists have long appreciated the health benefits watermelon provides. Watermelon not only boosts your “health esteem,” but it is has excellent levels of vitamins A and C and a good level of vitamin B6.

Vitamin A found in watermelon is important for optimal eye health and boosts immunity by enhancing the infection-fighting actions of white blood cells called lymphocytes.

Vitamin B6 found in watermelon helps the immune system produce antibodies. Antibodies are needed to fight many diseases. Vitamin B6 helps maintain normal nerve function and form red blood cells. The body uses it to help break down proteins. The more protein you eat, the more vitamin B6 you need.

Vitamin C in watermelon can help to bolster the immune system’s defenses against infections and viruses and can protect a body from harmful free radicals that can accelerate aging and conditions such as cataracts.

A two-cup serving of watermelon is also a source of potassium, a mineral necessary for water balance and found inside of every cell. People with low potassium levels can experience muscle cramps.
