23% Wrinkle Reduction with Ataulfo Mangoes

23% Wrinkle Reduction with Ataulfo Mangoes

Postmenopausal women who ate a half cup of Ataulfo mangoes four times a week saw a 23 percent decrease in deep wrinkles after two months and a 20 percent decrease after four months.

Two Foods supercharge normally ineffective antibiotics

Two Foods supercharge normally ineffective antibiotics

We look at two separate studies:

Cranberries join forces with antibiotics to fight bacteria

“But when we simultaneously treated the bacteria with an antibiotic and the cranberry extract, no resistance developed.”

Manuka honey to kill drug-resistant bacteria found in cystic fibrosis infections

The results showed that it was effective in killing antimicrobial resistant bacteria by 39% compared to 29% for antibiotics, whilst improving the activity of some antibiotics that were unable to function effectively by themselves, honey and antibiotics combined killed 90% of the bacteria tested.

Strawberry tree honey may inhibit colon cancer

Spanish and Italian researchers have proven that when honey from strawberry trees, a product typical of Mediterranean areas, is added to colon cancer cells grown in the laboratory, cell proliferation is stopped.
