Himalayan Crystal Salt

Accept no other--Swanson Himalayan Crystal Salt is the only real Himalayan Salt in America endorsed by the founder of the European crystal salt movement, Dr. Barbara Hendel. As the ancient seas evaporated and the Himalayan Mountains rose from the earth, ribbons of pure crystal salt were stretched throughout the rock. Its structure, mineral composition and purity were thus preserved to this day. This crystal salt is finely ground and 100% pure and natural. It's not refined like table salt; it's more pure and wholesome than sea salt or rock salt. Dr. Hendel's Himalayan Crystal Salt is hand-mined to preserve its integrity and provide pure elemental energy from the earth. While many of Europe's leading chefs now demand Himalayan Crystal Salt in their kitchens, there's more to this natural wonder than culinary applications. Dr. Hendel recommends its use in baths, skin-care solutions, vaporizers and more--all detailed in her booklet Water & Salt, available exclusively through Swanson Health Products.

Veggies That Boost Your Immune System

It’s that time of year again when we need to give our immune system a good healthy boost.

Because of the proliferation of health problems, people are constantly looking for ways to strengthen their immune system. While most resort to finding supplements and other health products, you can actually raise your immunity by simply eating your vegetables. Following is a list of vegetables you should eat for an improved immune system.

Vegetables that serve as Immune System Boosters

1. Garlic
Garlic contains allicin, a compound known for protecting cells against various compounds. It is also a powerful antiseptic, preventing diseases ranging from colds to cancers. Last but not least, it's directly linked to the prevention of age-related diseases.
2. Cruciferous vegetables
These mostly leafy vegetables have sulfur-containing compounds that are converted into isothiocyanates (ITCs). These ITCs improve immune response and are also linked to cancer prevention. Examples of cruciferous vegetables include cabbage, broccoli, and radish.
3. Onions
This popular vegetable is rich with quercetin, a powerful antioxidant. It also contains anthocyanins, another powerful antioxidant. Onions are also known to reduce hypertension and are an adequate treatment for allergies.
4. Tomatoes
This popular fruit is nature's best source of lycopene. One of the most powerful antioxidants in nature, it is exceptionally effective in preventing cancers, particularly of the prostate. It is also rich in both beta carotene and dietary fiber.
5. Mushrooms
Several of these fungi are directly linked to reducing the risk of cancers, particularly breast cancer. It is able to do so, because it enhances the function of T cells, a part of the immune system that attacks infections or tumor cells. While there are lots of delicious species, there are also plenty of poisonous ones; you have to make sure if the mushroom you're looking at is edible or not. Some healthy choices: morel mushrooms, black chanterelle mushrooms, cauliflower mushrooms, reishi mushrooms and maitake mushrooms.
6. Beets
These are exceptionally good for purifying the blood. They are rich in iron, which boosts the functionality of oxygen-carrying red blood cells. Beets also enhance the function of immunity-focused white blood cells. Last but not least, they facilitate detoxification.
7. Spinach
Spinach improves immune function in two different ways. It is rich in beta carotene, a precursor of vitamin A, which increases the power of the immune system. It also contains zinc, a vital mineral that improves immunity.
8. Artichokes
This vegetable contains cynarin, a powerful detoxifier. Not only does it help with liver cleansing, but it also boosts overall body response with its high B vitamin content.
9. Asparagus
This vegetable has exceptional diuretic properties, which encourages the flushing out of toxins. Not only does it cleanse our body's insides, but it is also effective in countering inflammatory responses.
10. Bell peppers
These vegetables, especially the red ones, are full of vitamin C. Not only do they contain a high amount of vitamin C, but they also contain beta carotene that improves immune system function.
Some people say that the key to having a strong and sturdy body is to eat vegetables. By eating these immunity-boosting foods, your body will become sturdy indeed.
