We all raw vegans and veggies know that raw veggies & fruits are the solution for an optimal health. Eating life vs. eating dead food consequences are well known,

Energized and gratified vs. fatigued and depressed.

So here are a few of the veggies and fruits we should have in our kitchen during the winter season. 

I posted a link down delow this article with all the detailed info about the winter season veggies & fruits to get in your local market. We all know that seasonal veggies and fruits are better because they are naturally grown, they don't need any alteration in order to grow in their optimal condition, therefore, preserving their optimal quality and health benefits.

Finally, here are the reasons (health benefits) why we should consume them daily:

  • Brussels Sprouts

Cholesterol 
The high fiber content (over 15% of our RDA) of Brussels sprouts lowers our cholesterol by binding with bile acids that the liver produces from cholesterol for digesting fat. Because many of these bile acids are coupled with fiber, the liver is charged with producing more bile acid to digest fat, and therefore requires more cholesterol to do so, ultimately lowering the cholesterol amount within our bodies.

DNA 
Recent studies have shown that certain compounds in Brussels sprouts block the activity of sulphotransferase enzymes that can be detrimental to the health and stability of DNA within white blood cells. 

Antioxidants
A host of antioxidant ingredients are found in Brussels sprouts, including Vitamins C, E, and A, as well as the mineral manganese. Furthermore, flavonoid antioxidants like isorhamnetin, quercitin, and kaempferol also serve well to protect against oxidative stress on the body's cells.

Inflammation 
Glucobrassicin, a glucosinolate particularly abundant in Brussels sprouts, has been shown to fight inflammation on a genetic level once converted into the molecule indole-3-carbinol, or ITC. Furthermore, one and a half cups of Brussels sprouts contain about 430 milligrams of omega-3 fatty acids (about ⅓ of the daily recommended amount) that are an essential part of our body's anti-inflammatory messaging molecules. Finally, the wealth of vitamin K found in Brussels sprouts has been shown to effectively regulate our body's inflammatory responses. 

Cancer Prevention 
Glucosinolates in Brussels sprouts and their detox-activating isothiocyanates are shown to fight against and even prevent various cancers, including bladder, breast, colon, lung, prostate, and ovarian cancer. 

Cardiovascular Support 
Brussels sprouts contain the isothiocyanate sulforaphane made from glucosinolates. This powerful compounds not only triggers anti-inflammatory activity in our cardiovascular system but may also prevent and even possibly help reverse blood vessel damage. By regulating inflammation within the body, Brussels sprouts can fight against the onset of heart attacks, ischemic heart disease, and arteriosclerosis. Furthermore, the lowered cholesterol mentioned earlier may also lessen the possibility of arterial blockage. 

Digestion and Diet
One cup of Brussels sprouts contains four grams (16% of the RDA) of dietary fiber, which can aid in digestion, prevent constipation, maintain low blood sugar and check overeating. The sulforaphane found in Brussels spouts also protects our stomach lining by obstructing the overgrowth of Helicobacter pylori, a bacteria that can lead to gastric cancer. 

Vitamin K 
Brussels sprouts are especially high in vitamin K (one cup contains 273.5% of the RDA), which promotes healthy bones, prevents calcification of the body’s tissues, serves as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent, and is essential for proper brain and nerve function.

Vitamin C 
The nutritional benefits of vitamin C (one cup contains over 161% of the RDA) found in Brussels sprouts ensure a healthy immune system, ward against hyper tension, lower blood pressure, fight lead toxicity, combat cataracts, and serve as a powerful antioxidant that prevents “cellular rust,” which can lead to atherosclerosis, heart disease, stroke and cancer. Vitamin A Brussels sprouts also contains over 20% of the RDA of vitamin A that boosts immunity, protects eyes against cataracts and macular degeneration, maintains healthy bones and teeth, prevents urinary stones, and is essential to our reproductive organs. Folate A biochemical event called the methylation cycle relies on folate to properly transcribe DNA, transform norepinephrine into adrenalin, as well as transform serotonin into melatonin. Furthermore, folate suppresses the amino acid homocysteine that has been shown to contribute to heart disease. One cup of Brussels sprouts contains a healthy dose of folate (almost 25% of the RDA) and the health benefits associated with it.

  • Leeks 
    • Leeks contain many noteworthy flavonoid anti-oxidants, minerals, and vitamins that have proven health benefits.

    • Leeks are low in calories. 100 g fresh stalks contain 61 calories. Further, their elongated stalks provide good amounts of soluble and insoluble fiber. 

    • Though leeks contain proportionately less thio-sulfinites than that in garlic, they still possess significant amounts of these anti-oxidants such as diallyl disulfide, diallyl trisulfide and allyl propyl disulfide. The compounds convert to allicin by enzymatic reaction when the leek-stalk disturbed (crushing, cutting, etc). The total measured anti-oxidant strength (ORAC value) of 100 g leek is 490 TE (Trolex Equivalents).

    • Laboratory studies show that allicin reduces cholesterol production by inhibiting the HMG-CoA reductaseenzyme in the liver cells. Further, it also found to have anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal activities.
    • Additionally, allicin decreases blood vessel stiffness by release of nitric oxide (NO) and, thereby bring a reduction in the total blood pressure. It also blocks platelet clot formation and has fibrinolytic action in the blood vessels, which helps decrease an overall risk of coronary artery disease (CAD), peripheral vascular diseases (PVD), and stroke.

    • Leeks are a great source of minerals and vitamins that are essential for optimum health. Their leafy stems indeed contain several vital vitamins such as pyridoxine, folic acid, niacin, riboflavin, and thiamin in healthy proportions. 100 g fresh stalks provide 64 µg of folates. Folic acid is essential for DNA synthesis and cell division. Their adequate levels in the diet during pregnancy can help prevent neural tube defects in the newborn babies.

    • In addition, leeks are one of the good sources of vitamin-A (1667 IU or 55% of RDA per 100 g) and other flavonoid phenolic anti-oxidants such as carotenes, xanthin, and lutein. They also have some other essential vitamins such as vitamin C, K, and vitamin E. Vitamin C helps the human body develop resistance against infectious agents and scavenge harmful, pro-inflammatory free radicals.

    • Further, its stalks have small amounts of minerals such as potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc, and selenium.

  • Beets

  • Garden beet is very low in calories (provide only 45 kcal/100 g), and contain zero cholesterol and small amount of fat. Its nutrition benefits come particularly from fiber, vitamins, minerals, and unique plant derived anti-oxidants.

  • The root is rich source of phytochemical compound, glycine betaine. Betaine has the property of lowering homocysteine levels within the blood. Homocysteine, one of highly toxic metabolite, promotes platelet clot as well as atherosclerotic-plaque formation, which, otherwise, can be harmful to blood vessels. High levels of homocysteine in the blood result in the development of coronary heart disease (CHD), stroke and peripheral vascular diseases.

  • Raw beets are an excellent source of folates. It contains about 109 µg/100 g of this vitamin (Provides 27% of RDA). However, extensive cooking may significantly deplete its level in food. Folates are necessary for DNA synthesis within the cells. When given during peri-conception period folates can prevent neural tube defects in the baby.

  • Fresh tubers contain small amounts of vitamin-C; however, its top greens are rather excellent sources of this vitamin. 100 g of beet greens provide 30 mg or 50% of RDA. Vitamin C is one of the powerful natural antioxidants, which helps the human body scavenge deleterious free radicals one of the reasons for cancer development.

  • Additionally, the top greens are an excellent source of carotenoids, flavonoid anti-oxidants, and vitamin A; contain these compounds several times more than that of in the roots. Vitamin A is required maintaining healthy mucus membranes and skin and is essential for vision. Consumption of natural vegetables rich in flavonoids helps to protect from lung and oral cavity cancers.

  • The root is also rich source of B-complex vitamins such as niacin (B-3), pantothenic acid (B-5), pyridoxine (B-6) and minerals such as iron, manganese, copper, and magnesium.

  • Further, the root indeed has very good levels of potassium. 100 g fresh root has 325 mg of potassium or 7% of daily requirements. Potassium lowers heart rate and regulates metabolism inside the cells by countering detrimental effects of sodium.

  • Kale (borecole)

  • Kale is a very versatile and nutritious green leafy vegetable. It is a widely popular vegetable since ancient Greek and Roman times for its low fat, no cholesterol but health benefiting anti-oxidant properties.

  • Kale, like other members of the Brassica family, contains health-promoting phytochemicals, sulforaphane and indole-3-carbinol that appear to protect against prostate and colon cancers.

  • Pomelo

1. Prevent UTI (Urinary Tract Infection):

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is really a bacterial infection which has an effect on the urinary system – the organ system that creates, stores, as well as removes urine. The urinary system consists of two kidneys, two ureters, the bladder, the urethra and a couple sphincter muscles – a urinary tract infection could affect any area of the urinary system (“urinary tract” as well as “urinary system” refer to exactly the same thing).

The infection is generally brought on by bacteria known as Escherichia coli. Urine possesses a selection of salts, fluids as well as waste produces, yet will not normally have bacteria within it. Bacteria going into the bladder or even kidney can easily reproduce quickly within the urine, resulting in a UTI (urinary tract infection).

Increased daily water consumption as well as loading up on cranberry juice are a couple of the natural efficient ways to aid in fighting urinary tract infection. Pomelos, with its extremely higher vitamin C content in addition assist fight this particular frequent swelling while pregnant. Vitamin C is recognized to up the acidity level within the urine frustrating the development of bacteria within the urinary tract.

2. Promotes fast healing of wounds:

Wound is surely an injury to existing tissue caused by cut, hit, or any other impact, usually one in which the skin is cut or even damaged.

Wound recovery suggests recovery of strength to wounded tissues simply by replacing of dead tissue along with practical tissue. This particular begins soon after an accident, may possibly continue for months or years, and is also basically the same for every type of injuries.

Wound healing is probably the most important way to preserve healthy body state. So as to raise the wound healing capability we need to consume nutritious fruits that may contain vitamin C just like pomelo. Vitamin C is regarded as the important because it’s a cofactor of enzymes active in the development of collagen, a protein that fortifies as well as makes skin flexible motivating faster wound recovery that is in pomelo.

3. Promotes healthy teeth and gums:

A tooth is just one of a couple of tough, bonelike structures grounded in sockets within the jaws of vertebrates. It is normally made up of a core of soft pulp encompassed by a layer of tough dentin which is covered along with cementum or even enamel in the crown as well as utilized for biting or even eating food or perhaps as a way of attack or even defense.

Gum is definitely the firm section of flesh round the roots of the teeth within the upper or even lower jaw.

Bleeding gums as well as loose teeth might be a symbol of vitamin C insufficiency. Collagen perfectly found on the pomelon isn’t just crucial in skin development but in addition in creating healthy and balanced gums and teeth.

4. Prevent anemia:

Anemia may be the situation of getting a lower-than-normal quantity of red blood cells or even amount of hemoglobin. Anemia decreases the capability of the blood to transport oxygen.

Individuals along with anemia may experience exhausted, weakness very easily, show up pale, produce heart palpitations, and turn into lacking breath. Kids with long-term anemia are susceptible to bacterial infections as well as learning difficulties.

The key reasons for anemia are usually blood loss, hemolysis (extreme deterioration of red blood cells), underproduction of red blood cells (as with bone marrow diseases), as well as underproduction of regular hemoglobin (as with sickle cell anemia as well as in a deficiency of iron anemia). Ladies are more inclined as compared to guys to get anemia due to monthly hemorrhage. In kids, anemia is most often because of inadequate iron within the diet. Anemia can also be frequently because of intestinal blood loss brought on by medicines, which includes such frequent drugs just as aspirin as well as ibuprofen.

Medical studies have demonstrated that vitamin C improves the assimilation of iron within the body. That’s the reason it is advisable to consume pomelon juice in case you are using iron supplements.

The very first (systolic pressure) is calculated as soon as the heart contracts and is also maximum. The 2nd (diastolic pressure) is calculated before the heart contracts as well as lowest. A blood pressure level cuff is utilized to determine the pressure. Elevation of blood pressure level is known as “hypertension” and this is referred to as noiseless killer disease.

Yet another good cause to consume pomelo is due to its abundant potassium content. It’s common knowledge that potassium assists reduce blood pressure levels.

7. Prevent osteoporosis:

Osteoporosis is thinning of the bones, along with decrease in bone bulk, because of exhaustion of calcium as well as bone protein. Osteoporosis predisposes an individual to fractures, which are generally sluggish to cure as well as recover inadequately. It really is most typical in seniors, specifically postmenopausal ladies, as well as in individuals taking anabolic steroids or even steroidal medications.

Uncontrolled osteoporosis can result in alterations in posture, bodily abnormality (especially the type of hunched back known in modern language as dowagers hump), as well as reduced flexibility.

Treatments for brittle bones consists of physical exercise (particularly weight-bearing physical exercise which builds bone strength and density), making certain the diet consists of sufficient calcium along with other minerals required to encourage new bone development.

The pulp of grape fruit can easily boost bone health and decrease the potential risk of building brittle bones.

8. Prevent leg cramps:

Leg cramping is unpleasant, unconscious, continual shrinkage of muscle within limbs or even several bodily organs. Common muscle cramping consist of swimmer’s cramp from overexertion in cold water, heat cramping from lack of salt within sweat, leg cramps, as well as work-related cramp.

There are numerous probable reasons for leg cramping. Neurological, reflex, or even psychological Overuse of leg muscles, extended sitting or standing in a single posture, as well as putting on unpleasant footwear is risk factors for producing leg cramping.

The most typical cause is a result of lack of fluids as well as electrolyte disruptions just like magnesium, calcium, potassium as well as sodium. Decreased blood circulation through muscle tissue could be related to leg cramping.

In case you expertise leg cramping it might imply that your body is calling for a lot more potassium, a mineral that performs an important role in muscle shrinkage as well as nerve transmission. Potassium can be found in pomelo.

9. Cure Constipation:

A bowel problem takes place when bowel motions turn out to be challenging or even more uncommon. The regular period of time in between bowel motions varies extensively for every person. Some individuals have bowel motions 3 times each day; other people, just one or two times per week. Going more than 3 days with no bowel motion is simply too extended. Soon after 3 days, the stool or even fecal material turns out to be tougher and much tougher to pass.

Pomelo can also be filled with dietary fiber, a must-have nutrient to assist preserve normal bowel motions, avoid hemorrhoids as well as colon cancer.

10. Aids in weight loss:

11. Fights against Cancers:

Cancer can be a type of illnesses seen as a out-of-control cell growth. There are actually more than 100 various kinds of cancer, and every is classed by the kind of cell which is originally affected.

Cancer damages the body whenever damaged cells divide uncontrollably to create mounds or even masses of tissue known as tumors (with the exception of the situation of leukemia exactly where cancer discourages normal blood function simply by irregular cell division within the blood stream). Tumors can easily develop as well as hinder the digestive, nervous, as well as circulatory systems, and they also can discharge hormones which modify body function. Tumors which remain in a single place as well as show minimal development are usually regarded as being harmless.

The Chinese make use of the pomelo skin in lots of recipes. The skin of the fresh fruit is extremely abundant with bioflavonoids. This particular property is useful in decreasing pancreatic, intestinal tract as well as cancer of the breast. In reality, it prevents cancer cells from distributing additionally. Pomelo skin consists of wealthy bioflavonoids which help to fight from cancer cells. It helps prevent the spread of cancer of the breast cells particularly by enabling the body to remove excessive estrogen.

12. Treats atherosclerosis:

Coronary artery disease is definitely the build-up of the waxy plaque on the interior of blood vessels. In Greek, athere implies gruel, as well as skleros signifies hard. Atherosclerosis is usually referred to as arteriosclerosis. Arteriosclerosis (from the Greek arteria, meaning artery) is actually a common term for solidifying of the arteries. Arteriosclerosis may appear in a number of types, which includes atherosclerosis.

Pectin content of pomelo fruit is beneficial in cleaning the gathered arterial debris within the body and therefore removing the harmful particles. Pomelo fruit is full of vitamin C content which makes it useful for conditioning and sustaining the artery’s elastic nature.

13. Anti-aging:

Aging is the procedure to become more mature, a procedure which is genetically decided as well as environmentally modulated.

Pomelo is a well-liked anti-aging resource. It combats wrinkles as well as aging skin making them appear youthful, white as well as soft. The skin will get numerous excellent advantages from the vitamins from Pomelo. It doesn’t only assist remove the free-radicals that may harm the skin it also assists the body boost the manufacture of collagen.

Grape fruits and certain pomelo are definitely the only identified fruit that contains spermadine, which is also present in human sperm. A laboratory-based research discovered spermadine to safeguard cells from procedures associated with aging as well as cell damage. Within the research spermadine improved the life-span of flies, blood cells, yeast as well as worms. Spermadine brought to the blood cells of white mice safeguarded them from specific kinds of cell damage, however their lifespans weren’t documented.
