Superfoods

Research these:

  • chia
  • goji berries
  • ginger – digestive aid?
  • “evergreen”, pine-nuts (??) — pycnogenol as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and can cross the blood-brain barrier.
  • garlic – allicin has a bunch of properties

And let’s talk about wine

There are (potentially) a lot of benefits to (moderate consumption of) wine, including:

  • lower risk of:
    • dementia
    • liver disease
    • prostate, bowel, lung & breast cancer
    • diabetes
    • blindness
    • depression
    • heart disease
  • protection from:
    • sunburn
    • ageing
    • stroke damage

It’s enough to make me want a glass now, to be honest.

And if I’m on that bandwagon, how about I google “health benefits of coffee” and “health benefits of whisky”.

Health benefits of whisky

Regular, moderate consumption of whisky may have similar benefits to wine:

  • prevention of cancer
  • an increase in antioxidants
  • making one look like a seriously cool dude
