Reader’s

Competition

Winner

Our reader

Helena Nita Fernandes

sent in the following

tips and has won the grand prize of

15 complementary guest passes

for our competition sponsored by Body & Soul Health Club.

Thanks to all of you who participated in our competition.

Here are Helena’s five healthy tips which we can all

incorporate in our daily lives

Honey helps boost your

energy:

A healthy, whole-food

diet and proper sleep is the best

recipe for boundless energy, but if

you’re looking for a quick energy

boost, such as before or after a

workout, honey will suffice. This

is particularly true for athletes

looking for “time-released fuel”

to provide energy over a longer

duration.

Aloe Vera enhances skin

health:

Aloe is one of the most

widely-used ingredients in high-

grade skin care products. There’s a

reason for that: It’s great medicine

for the skin! Aloe soothes the

skin, hydrates it, nourishes it and

accelerates the regeneration of

new skin tissue. And while most

people are only familiar with using

Aloe Vera externally, Aloe also

enhances skin health when used

internally. Drink more Aloe and

watch your skin glow!

Cucumber promotes

healthy joints:

Abundant

in silica, cucumber is great in

strengthening muscles, joints, and

connective tissues. It is rich in

calcium, potassium, magnesium,

and folate, which holds back the

formation of uric acid in the body,

thereby reducing arthritis and

gout pain.

Lemon can help in curing a

throat infection:

If you have a

sore throat make a warm lemon

drink to sip every couple of hours

to help beat the infection.

Almonds good for your

brain:

Almonds are a source of

many nutrients which help in the

development and health of the

human brain. Almonds have been

connected to a higher intellectual

level and they have long been

considered an essential food for

growing children. Almonds also

contain two vital brain nutrients,

riboflavin and L-carnitine, which

have been shown to increase

brain activity, resulting in new

neural pathways and a decreased

occurrence of Alzheimer’s disease.

Studies have shown that almonds

in the diet, as well as almond oil,

are nutritive to the overall health

and functioning of the nervous

system.
