Current health related fitness – exercise articles and information.

Current health related fitness – exercise articles and information. What actually is a valuable health article. I would refer to the expression “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Value in health articles is mainly the value individuals place on the article based on what are their current issues and concerns with health and nutrition.

For example if the person has a skin problem (i.e. acne or psoriasis) and the article is about a treatment for acne that works they’re going to be all over that article like flies on what doesn’t smell so good.

I suppose one of the reasons people don’t like to read health articles is because they are typically as boring as watching grandpa snoring through a staring contest.

So what does this all mean if you’re a person that writes health articles or a health blog. Well for a start
consider health articles that deal with stress and lack of energy and improved sleep. Things that you know most people have a problem or issue with.

In that regard here are some links to other articles that deal with some of these issues:

Health & Nutrition Articles Healthranker, Squidoo and More

Something unused has no value. Think about that - a nutrition product in a bottle can't provide better health if it remains in the bottle - untaken. The best health information or advice either un-given or un-taken is of no value. So in that spirit here's some health information and websites for your benefit.

Here's an Article on Ten Vegetables You Should Eat To Improve Your Health.

Have you ever wondered what exactly the "healthiest vegetable" is? Well, that question popped into my mind the other day and I decided to research it. I saw some people claim that broccoli was the best, others argued that spinach does the most for the body, and still others were claiming that swiss chard held the top spot! All gave solid reasons for their chosen veggie, and while they didn't all agree on which is the healthiest, it's pretty safe to say that each one has its own wonderful benefits for your body. Here I’m going to list ten vegetables that, when all added to your diet, can make a drastic change in your health!

1. Collard Greens. Collard greens are a staple of every good southern diet, used in plenty of different recipes in a variety of ways. Tasty and pretty, this veggie has been researched extensively in relation to fighting cancer. – Three of it’s amazing nutrients, - sulforaphane, selenium, and diindolymethane - have all been shown to have cancer fighting properties. It is also bursting with vitamin E, calcium, and beta-carotene.

2. Onions. Onions may not work wonders for your breath, but when it comes to your body, this flavorful vegetable can work wonders. It’s been shown to be a natural agent against tumors, as well as having amazing anti-inflammatory properties. Onions also happen to contain the most active of all flavanoids, - an antioxidant called quercetin. This helps your body ward off the damaging, aging effects that free-radicals have on it.

3. Red Peppers. (Bell peppers) These colorful vegetables not only make a lovely accent to any meal; they’re also quite good for you. Red peppers are rich in antioxidants, reducing damage done in your body by free radicals. They are also bursting with vitamins A and C, and have been shown to reduce your risk for heart disease and stroke, due to their high levels of vitamins B6 and folic acid.

4. Sweet Potatoes. Sweet potatoes are absolutely bursting with vitamins A (Almost twice the recommended daily dose!) and C, as well as having plenty of protein, calcium and iron. They also rank well in their amount of dietary fiber. Beta-carotene and vitamin C work very well together as antioxidants to reduce free radicals in your body. And they taste wonderful, too!

5. Broccoli. Besides being rich in vitamins A and C, broccoli has sulforaphane. Sulforaphane is really one of broccoli’s biggest secret weapons. – It’s an anti-cancer compound that really charges and stimulates your cells to create enzymes that help fight cancer. It’s an amazing anti-cancer food.

6. Carrots. Carrots are a fun and versatile vegetable that can be used in anything from a pot roast to a party snack tray, making them a perfect vegetable for just about anything. They’re a great place to get fiber and vitamin K. Of course though, carrots are best known for helping out eyesight, and it’s true, they contain beta-carotene. Our body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A. Too little vitamin A can lead to bad vision, but fortunately it can be repaired by introducing more of it back into your body, thus making carrots the perfect food for your peepers!

7. Eggplants. Eggplants are really fascinating, as they’re very good for you in numerous different aspects. Not only are they loaded with copper, potassium, vitamin B1 and fiber, but they’ve also been shown to have great impact on the health of your heart. – It’s thought they can even help reduce your risk for heart-related illness in the future! The rich purple skin of the eggplant is also loaded with antioxidants.

8. Spinach. While spinach’s fame comes from its supposed “amazingly high” iron content, the truth is that while spinach does have an above average amount of iron in it, it has many other nutritional benefits that are just as important if not more so. It has plenty of magnesium, vitamin E, vitamin A and vitamin C, making it a very nutritionally dense vegetable. It may not make you as strong as Popeye, but it will definitely improve your health!

9. Celery. Celery is often used as a dieter’s snack. – Something with so few calories, that is makes for a great snack food for anyone watching their weight. But unbeknownst to a lot of people is just how good for you celery really is! It contains a lot of vitamins A and C (Which pack a lot of antioxidant power.), as well as potassium, magnesium and calcium, making for a nutritionally packed vegetable!

10. Asparagus. Asparagus is one of the few vegetables loaded in vitamin E, making it great for skin health, and it also contains a lot of potassium, vitamin B6, and fiber as well. Another really cool thing about asparagus is two antioxidants it has called “glutathione” and “rutin”. Glutathione has been shown to have cancer-fighting qualities, while rutin is great for strengthening the walls of your capillaries.

While there may be many differing opinions on which vegetable gets the title of “healthiest”, there’s no dispute that all of them have their own amazing nutritional benefits. By adding these to your diet you’ll be on the right track to becoming a healthier, happier you.
