Almonds: Even though almonds have a high fat content, just like other nuts, they can boost weight loss. This is due to the fact that they are rich in a number of nutrients and fibers and don’t cause a sugar high and crash. They provide you with plenty of energy and make you feel full for longer.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that cancer is linked to obesity. To be more precise, obesity has been found a common denominator for esophagus, pancreas, colorectal, breast, uterine, kidney, thyroid and gallbladder cancers. This means that almonds protect you from cancer by helping you to lose weight and maintaining it under control.
Moreover, almonds are also a rich source of antioxidants which protect you from cancer-causing free radicals. They also abound in magnesium and vitamin E, powerful ingredients in the fight against colon, breast and bladder cancer.
Coconut oil: Coconut has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, due to the high amount of lauric acid it contains. It’s beneficial against viral, fungal and bacterial infection. It’s so powerful that it can kill 93% of colon cancer cells in just two days.
It stimulates digestion and strengthens your immune system, giving your body’s natural anti-cancer systems a chance to fight back. It’s rich in antioxidants which prevent genetic damage caused by free radicals, a condition linked with the development of cancer.
