Nature has designed nutrients to enable the body to repair itself and stay healthy. And as it turns out, the beauty of nature also reminds us what certain foods can do.
From the Heart
A tomato and the human heart are both red and have four chambers. Research shows tomatoes also can help prevent heart attacks, primarily by lowering cholesterol. In one study, drinking 13 ounces of tomato juice daily for three weeks lowered LDL “bad” cholesterol levels by almost 13 percent.
Easy on the Eyes
Take a look at a sliced carrot for instance. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye. As mother nature would have it, carrots are rich in beta-carotene, which the body converts to vitamin A — a crucial nutrient for proper eyesight.
Nuts and Bolts
Ever noticed how a walnut looks like a tiny brain? If you look closely, you can pick out a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrum and lower cerebellum. We now know that walnuts are rich in vitamin E. Higher levels of vitamin E correspond with less cognitive decline as you get older, which has been shown to improve brain health.
You Are What You Eat
Kidney beans deliver a plethora of health benefits. They are rich in fiber and contain many vitamins, minerals and nutrients. Not only do they look exactly like human kidneys, they also perform similar tasks, such as providing energy and stabilizing blood sugar.
No Bones About It
Celery, bok choy and rhubarb resemble human bones, and these foods target bone strength. If you don’t have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, making them weak. These plants replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
For Crying Out Loud
Upon cutting an onion in half, did you ever notice all the intricacies and layers making you tear up? The inside of an onion actually has a surprising resemblance to a human cell. Research shows eating onions helps clear waste from the body to promote cell health. And slicing them produces tears to wash the epithelial layers of the eyes.
