Nobody can question that maintaining a healthy diet can help keep your body fit. But when it comes to which foods can explicitly benefit which body parts, science remains surprisingly woolly. But nature gives us big evidence as to what foods help what portion of our body!
Here is a list of superfoods that mirror the body parts they are healthy for—for example, brain-enhancing walnuts resemble the brain. Though these foods are beneficial to the complete body, the list contains the foods that are specifically beneficial to separate body parts.
1. Carrot-Human eye
A sliced carrot resembles a human eye. Science says that eating carrots hugely influence blood flow in the eyes. Carrot gets its colour from a plant chemical known as beta-carotene, which diminishes the risk of getting a cataract.
The chemical also preserves against muscular degeneration a sight problem that affects one in every four individuals who are over the age of 65.
So make it a resolution to have at least one carrot every three days to protect the most vital organ of the human body that helps us see the world, our eyes.
A tomato’s cross-section shows that it has four chambers and also, it is red in colour, and so does the heart. Scientists have confirmed that tomato is filled with lycopene, and it is pure heart and blood nutrition. So why not increase our tomato intake to reduce our chances of getting a heart attack?
Grapes look a lot like the alveoli in the lungs. The lungs are made up of branches of airways that end in little branches of tissue called alveoli. These allow oxygen to go from the lungs into the bloodstream. One reason that the premature babies struggle to survive is that these alveoli do not begin to form until 23 to 24 week of pregnancy. So if you have asthma, you know which food to take in more.
A Walnut resembles a miniature version of the brain. Even the wrinkles or folds in the nut are similar to the ones in the brain. Scientists claim that walnuts play a major role in developing over three dozen neuron-transmitters in the brain which enhance the signalling and encouraging new messaging connection between the brain cells. Nuts help in curing dementia.
5. Kidney Beans-Kidney
Kidney Beans heal and help in maintaining kidney function and are look exactly like the human kidneys. These beans provide various minerals and vitamins, and hence are beneficial for your overall health.
If your kidneys are functioning properly, kidney beans can, when taken in the right way, contribute to the health of the kidneys.
Not to mention that having Rajma on a daily basis will not only make you fat but will also affect your stomach. So take kidney beans with prudence.
Celery, Rhubarb, Bok-choy look just like bones. These foods periodically target bone strength. Bones constitute23% sodium and these foods are rich in sodium. You need to have enough sodium in your diet so that the body does not pull it from the bones. These foods, therefore, replenish the needs of the skeletal system of the body.
Avocados and Pears are beneficial for the health of the cervix and the womb of the female body structure and resemble these organs as well. Research shows that if a woman eats an avocado a week, it balances her birth hormones, sheds the unwanted birth weight of the offspring and can prevent cervical cancer. An avocado takes exactly nine months to grow from blossom to ripened fruit! How different is that from a human baby? There are supposedly over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition that are beneficial for the body.
8. Sweet Potatoes- Pancreas
Sweet Potatoes look exactly like the pancreas and can indeed balance the glycemic table of people with diabetes. The oblong sweet potato that bears a strong resemblance to the pancreas also promotes healthy function of the organ.
Citrus fruits like grapefruits and oranges look just like the mammary glands of the female structure and assist the health of breasts and also the movement of the lymph in and out of the breasts.
Research shows that having a citrus fruit every week can improve the health and functioning of breasts very efficiently. The similarity between the breasts and the round citrus fruits–like grapefruit and lemons–seems more than just coincidental.
“Grapefruit is rich in substances called limonoids, which have been proven to inhibit the development of cancer in lab animals, as well as in humans.” scientists say.
Ginger looks exactly like the human stomach and also aids in the digestion. Historians say that the Indians and Chinese are using ginger for over 5000 years in their foods to calm the stomach and cure nausea and motion sickness.
Ginger also slows down the development of bowel tumours.
