The power of Cayenne Pepper
By Generation Nourished
Cayenne Pepper comes from the Capsicum veggie family and is known for its detoxifying and alkalizing effects. The pepper contains a substance called Capsaicin which gives it its hot and zesty taste, while offering an array of health benefits including; cleansing of nasal passages, sinus headache relief, boosts circulation, fights inflammation and the list doesn’t end there! These potent peppers are a good source of vitamins A and C and also contain age-defying antioxidants. Sprinkle the tiniest dash of the powdered spice (also known as red pepper) in a cup of tea, fresh lemonade or over your favorite soup, stew or stir-fry.

Spring is here!
By Generation Nourished
Spring marks the time for renewal and release. This is also true for the organs in our body primarily the liver and gall bladder. To release build-up and toxins, fuel your body with healthy springtime greens such as asparagus, artichoke, fennel, scallions, peas and spinach and don’t forget to add detoxifying herbs such as coriander and parsley. Lots of water, herbal teas and lighter foods such as raw salads or steamed veggies are also called for at this time of year. Health benefits don’t end only with a cleansed liver, but also include fewer breakouts, improved immunity, better mood and general overall wellbeing.

Fancy some fish?
Did you know that consuming two decent portions of oily fish per week can give you a clearer, sharper mind amongst many other health benefits? Some of the best types of fish include; salmon, tuna, sardines and herring, as they are high in an omega-3 fatty acid called Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Diets rich in omega-3 promote proper brain function, lower the risk of heart disease and reduce symptoms associated with rheumatoid arthritis and menstrual cramps. If you don’t like eating fish, then consider supplementing through fish oil capsules which also contain EPA, another beneficial omega-3 fatty acid.

Staying hydrated
By Generation Nourished
You’ve been working hard at keeping yourself fit and healthy by eating well and exercising regularly. But are you forgetting your H2O? Our bodies are made up of nearly two-thirds water and its presence in the body is crucial for powering body functions, eliminating toxins and promoting all-round well-being. Don’t allow your body to go into a state of stress by not getting enough. If you’re bored of plain water, try squeezing some lemon into your glass or opt for caffeine-free herbal tea for added flavor. Aim for at least 8 glasses a day and note that coffee does not count because it is a diuretic and will actually dehydrate you.
