Community Against Heart Disease

  • Our products rich in calcium and magnesium help you to regulate the blood pressure, preventing heart attack and arterial thrombosis and improve blood flow and oxygenation.
  • We are part of DASH diet (Rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat foods) promoted of National Institute of Health (NIH).
  • Comparisons between a diet low in saturated fats, with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, and the typical diet of someone living in the developed world show that in the former there is a 73% reduction in the risk of new major cardiac events. (World Heart Federation)
  • Saturated and trans fats raise cholesterol levels in the blood, which in turn can lead to atherosclerosis. (World Heart Federation)
  • It´s important to note that if your total fat intake is greater than 37% of your total calories, then even if that fat is unsaturated you increase your risk of cardiovascular disease. (World Heart Federation)

Community against Diabetes Type II

  • Try to include dried beans into several meals per week. They are a great source of protein and are loaded with fiber, vitamins and minerals. (American Diabetes Association)
  • Some carbs are simple, like sugar. Other carbs are complex, like those found in beans, nuts, vegetables, and whole grains. Complex carbohydrates are better for you because they take longer for your body to digest. They give you steady energy and fiber.
  • You get fiber from plant foods -- fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, beans, and legumes. It helps with digestion and blood sugar control. You feel fuller, so you eat less, which is a plus if you need to lose weight.
  • Diabetes makes you more likely to get heart disease. So you’ll want to limit unhealthy fat such as saturated fat and trans fats. The main sources of saturated fats are cheese, beef, milk, and baked items.

Community against Cancer

  • According with National Cancer Institute, as much as 80 percent of all cancers are due to identified factors, and thus are potentially preventable. Thirty percent are due to tobacco use, and as much as 35 to 50 percent are due to foods.
  • Some vitamins in plant foods are known to be grow tumor inhibitors. Dietary fat, on the other hand, is known to be a promoter that helps the abnormal cells grow quickly.
  • The highest fiber intakes are found in non-industrialized nations where meat is scarce and plant foods fill the menu. Animal products contain no fiber. The U.S. and other Western nations whose diets are based upon animal products have the highest rates of colon cancer.
  • Fiber is also protective against other forms of cancer. Studies have shown that stomach cancer and breast cancer are less common on high-fiber diets.
  • In the U.S., the average daily fiber intake is 10 to 20 grams per day. Experts recommend 30 to 40 grams per day. The best sources of fiber are whole grains, beans, peas, lentils, vegetables, and fruits. Foods that are closest to their natural state, unrefined and unpeeled, are highest in fiber.
  • Fat has many effects within the body. It increases hormone production and thus raises breast cancer risks. It also stimulates the production of bile acids, which have been linked to colon cancer.
  • The average diet in the U.S. is about 37 percent fat. The National Cancer Institute suggests that people lower that percentage down to 30 percent; however, studies have shown that fat intake should be well below 30 percent to have an anti-cancer affect. Ten to 15 percent is more likely to be helpful.
  • Not only are vegetables low in fat and high in fiber, they also contain many cancer-fighting substances. Carotenoids, the pigment that gives fruits and vegetables their dark colors, have been shown to help prevent cancer. Beta-carotene, present in dark green and yellow vegetables, helps protect against lung cancer and may help prevent cancers of the bladder, mouth, larynx, esophagus, breast, and other sites.
  • A cancer prevention diet is one that is high in fiber, low in fat (especially animal fat), and includes generous portions of fruits and vegetables. It also minimizes or excludes alcohol. The best diets are pure vegetarian diets.
