Red Cabbage vs White Cabbage

Health Benefits of Red Cabbage (vs White Cabbage)

Benefits of Eating Red Cabbage vs White Cabbage
The potential health benefits of red cabbage are truly impressive. Analysis of the nutritional profile of red cabbage reveals that this tasty member of the Brassica family of plants is loaded with a range of health benefiting nutrients and phytochemicals, including vitamin C, anthocyanins, and glucosinolates. Also known as purple cabbage or Brassica oleracea var. capitata f. rubra in the sicentific circles, red cabbage is also packed with vitamin K, although it does not contain quite as much of this heart health boosting nutrient as green cabbage.
In this in-depth article, we take a look at the various nutrients that make red cabbage so good for you, plus provide some interesting facts about the differences in the nutritional value of red cabbage versus white cabbage.

Red cabbage has more vitamin C than white cabbage – or oranges!

So you thought those healthy navel oranges in your fruit bowl are the best dietary source of vitamin C you can reach for? Well, guess what, raw red cabbage contains even more vitamin C than fresh oranges! One ounce (28 grams) of raw red cabbage provides a whopping 27 percent of the Daily Value (DV) for vitamin C, while an equal-sized serving of oranges contains 25 percent of the DV for this important nutrient. For the sake of comparison, green cabbage varieties (including white cabbage) contain about 17 percent of the DV per 1 ounce.
Vitamin C is perhaps best known for its immune-boosting properties, but did you know that it can also help keep your skin, bones, and teeth healthy. Most of the health benefits associated with the consumption of vitamin C rich foods, such as cabbage, are believed to be linked to the antioxidant activities of vitamin C, but also its ability to stimulate collagen synthesis is thought to play a role.
Tip: To maximize the health benefits of red or white cabbage derived from their high vitamin C content, make sure your meal also contains some foods that provide vitamin E as these two vitamins work best synergistically.

Red cabbage contains the same 'super antioxidant' as aronia berries

Unlike green and white cabbage varieties, red cabbage contains anthocyanins, the same red flavonoid pigments that are responsible for many of the famous health benefits of aronia berries (chokeberries)blue honeyberries, and many other blue, red, and purple berries and fruits. Using oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) as a measure, a team of scientists from the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging have shown that anthocyanins have extremely strong antioxidant properties in vitro, even stronger than Trolox which is a vitamin E analogue.

Numerous studies suggest that antioxidants help protect your body from the effects of free radicals, unstable atoms that promote the development of many degenerative diseases and pre-mature aging of the skin. People who are frequently exposed to things like pollution, drugs, cigarette smoke, toxic wastes, stress, and UV radiation are likely to have higher levels of free radicals in their bodies.
One study assessing the effects of anthocyanins was carried out specifically to assess the health benefits of red cabbage anthocyanins and purple sweet potato anthocyanins in rats with colorectal cancer. This study, which was published in The Journal of Toxicological Sciences in February 2002, found that both sweet potato and red cabbage anthocyanins had anti-cancer effects under the experimental conditions used in this study.

Red cabbage contains more glucosinolates than its white counterpart

Also several epidemiological studies (studies that compare groups of people) have found a link between a high consumption of Brassica vegetables, such as cabbage, and a reduced risk of certain types of cancer. In case of red cabbage, some of its potential cancer-fighting effects can be attributed to the anthocyanins it contains; however, also the glucosinolates it delivers are thought to provide significant benefits. Glucosinolates, present in almost all Brassica vegetables, are pre-cursors to biologically active isothiocyanates which have been shown to destroy carcinogenic substances and to hinder cancer cell proliferation.
Interestingly, however, there seems to be significant differences in the glucosinolate content of different Brassica vegetables. In 2010, an intriguing study comparing the glucosinolate content of 11 Brassica oleracea crops (consisting of 42 cultivars) was published in Acta Horticulturae. This study reported that the total glucosinolate content varied from 14 to 625 μmol/100 g (fresh weight, or FW) among the tested Brassicas.
White cabbage was shown to contain high levels of glucosinolates, much higher than many other Brassica vegetables, but red cabbage had even higher levels! The total level of glucosinolates in red cabbage ranged from 140 to 381 μmol/100 g FW, while the glucosinolate content of white cabbage was in the range 127 to 241 μmol/100 g FW.

Green cabbage is the vitamin K champion

Red cabbage is also loaded with vitamin K, although it does not beat the green cabbage, the vitamin K champion. According to USDA's Nutrition Facts data, 1 ounce of raw red cabbage provides provides your body with about 13% of the Daily Value for vitamin K. By way of comparison, eating just one ounce of green cabbage will supply your body with a whopping 27% of the Daily Value for vitamin K.
Vitamin K is best known for its role in blood coagulation, but emerging research suggests it may also be one of the best vitamins for cardiovascular health and bone health: Vitamin K helps direct calcium into the bone, thereby reducing the risk of calcium build-up in blood vessels.

How to Wash Your Hair—The Right Way

woman washing hair
Posted in HairHair care By 
You might do it nearly every day, but here’s something surprising: you might not really know how to wash your hair the right way. Using the correct techniques can make a world of difference in your hair’s health, bounce and shine—but if you’re making some common mistakes, you could be damaging your lovely locks without even realizing it. We asked two of New York’s foremost hair pros, hair stylist Nunzio Saviano of Nunzio Saviano Salon in New York and Kyle White, lead colorist at Oscar Blandi Salon, to share their best tips for lathering up—and doing it the right way.
1. Start with a rinse.
Just like your laundry needs a rinse cycle before you add detergent, hair should be thoroughly wet before you add your shampoo. “Hot water will open the cuticle, which is good for removing any dirt or product trapped in the hair,” says White. Another bonus: “When your hair is rinsed in warm water, it loosens the oils through the scalp and opens the cuticle so it is able to absorb the oil” in your conditioner, says Saviano.
2. If you have long hair, condition first.
Yes, really! “If you have hair beneath the shoulders, protect fragile ends from drying out and further damage by running a small amount of conditioner through them and lightly rinsing, before any shampooing. This will not only keep ends healthy, it will fill any holes in the cuticle with moisture, making it smoother and boosting shine,” says White.
3. Lather up — but only at the scalp.
“You only need to shampoo the hair at the scalp, particularly at the nape,” Saviano says.
White agrees. “The best way to lather up is from roots to ends. The hair closest to the scalp is the youngest and will inevitably be the oiliest, while the end of the hair is the oldest and usually driest, most fragile part of the hair.”
Don’t use more shampoo than you need; both Saviano and White say that a quarter-sized amount of shampoo is enough. If your hair is particularly long or thick, go ahead and double that.
4. Be gentle!
Friction can permanently damage your hair’s cuticle, leading to breakage and frizz. Think about washing your hair like you hand wash your delicates — very carefully.
“Start your lather at the roots,” says White. “Increase blood flow to the scalp and stimulate hair growth by using vertical strokes with medium pressure.” Don’t use circular motions, which can tangle your hair.
Next, “Smooth the lather over the ends in a straight stroking motion,” White advises. “Do not scrub the fragile ends or use a back and forth motion like you’re washing a rag on a washboard.”
5. Don’t rinse and repeat.
Despite what the instructions on the back of your shampoo bottle may say, there’s no need to wash your hair twice. “Avoid stripping the hair by doing one shampoo only, which is usually sufficient,” says White. “Unless the hair is extremely dirty and the first shampoo didn’t produce a lather,” in which case, go ahead and lather up one more time.
6. Add conditioner from the mid-lengths to the tips.
After you’ve rinsed out your shampoo, “squeeze some of the water out of the hair before you put in the conditioner,” says Saviano. “Then clip your hair up and finish showering, leaving the conditioner rinse out for the final step of your shower.” The longer the conditioner stays on your hair, the better it absorbs. Don’t put conditioner at the roots of your hair; the natural oil from your scalp is more concentrated there.
7. Finish with a cold water rinse.
“Cold water will shut the cuticle tight, sealing the shingle-like outer layer, which will cause it to reflect the most light and give off the most shine,” says White.
More Hair Washing Tips…
Use a shampoo and conditioner that’s made for your hair type. If your hair is dry, choose moisturizing products. If you color your hair, opt for color-safe formulas. “Volumizing” shampoos tend to leave hair drier, so they’re best for fine hair types that would be weighed down by more moisturizing products.
How often you wash your hair depends on your hair type, too. If you have oily or fine hair, you may need to shampoo daily. Normal or dry hair can lather up closer to three times a week.
Filter your water. White recommends using a shower filter, such as the T3 Source Showerhead, since it “removes rust and minerals from water that can dull color, and deposit on blondes making them dark and muddy.” (We’ve tried it, and it also made our hair super soft.)

Gifts from Mother Nature we can use to combat Inflammation

Take a look at all of the gifts from mother nature we can use to combat inflammation.

Proteolytic Enzymes
Research indicates these enzymes work throughout your entire body to help it fight inflammation… dissolve scar tissue… cleanse and thin the blood… plus even boost cardiovascular, respiratory and immune function.In other words, proteolytic enzymes are the final line of defense against disease, illnesses, pain and everything else that happens inside your body.
And unfortunately with the nutrient-deficient food we’re eating today, the vast majority of adults today have dangerously low levels of these enzymes!

This special natural compound which is extracted from pineapple contains several proteolytic enzymes that have been shown to short-circuit multiple pain pathways in the body.
It has been studied extensively since it’s discovery in 1957 and hundreds of studies have shown it to reduce inflammation, reduce and prevent swelling and remove waste and toxins from the blood.
For example, in one study, 77 patients taking Bromelain experienced significant reduction in pain and swelling.

Turmeric Extract
Turmeric has the unique ability of using its antioxidant powers to seek out and destroy free radicals in the body which contribute to pain and swelling.
A recent study done at the prestigious Sloan-Kettering Cancer Research Center in New York.
In this study they found that Turmeric was more safe and precise than aspirin in stopping inflammation by shutting down the COX2 enzyme responsible for arthritis pain.
And Turmeric caused none of aspirin’s typical gastrointestinal irritation!

Papain is unique in that it’s been shown to actually attack tumor cells and boost the immune system!
It also contains a wide range of proteolytic enzymes and works by breaking down proteins.
In studies it has been shown to be effective in the treatment of numerous conditions such as diabetes, herpes, cancer and digestion issues like bloating and chronic indigestion.
It’s an enzyme very few people have enough of, yet if they did, would reduce the frequency of a lot of common diseases and disorders!

Devil’s Claw
Numerous studies have proven it’s effectiveness in reducing pain and inflammation.
In fact, one study found that Devil’s Claw was as effective in treating arthritis pain as common drug, phenylbutazone… which is so strong it’s even used to treat pain in horses!
There have also been several studies on humans which show that Devil’s Claw is as effective as COX-2 inhibitors… without the deadly side effects!
A series of studies completed in Germany found that the main ingredient in Devil’s Claw was indistinguishable from Vioxx in the treatment of chronic arthritis pain!

Boswellia Extract
One of the most widely used herbs in Indian medicine, it has been used for centuries by traditional Indian healers to reduce arthritis pain and inflammation.
Hundreds of studies have been done proving it’s effectiveness and in addition to being a powerful and safe, natural anti-inflammatory, Boswellia has also been shown to support healthy blood circulation.
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study, 30 patients received 333mg, 3x a day of Boswelia.
The group who received the Boswelia had a significant reduction in pain and swelling and experienced an increase in joint mobility and flexibility as compared to the placebo group.

Vitamin E
This fat-soluble vitamin is an essential nutrient for humans and is known for it’s powerful anti-oxidant properties.
Vitamin E has been shown to be beneficial in numerous situations and conditions such as controlling high blood pressure, maintaining healthy and balanced cholesterol levels and boosting immune system function.
Plus… it has also been shown to improve circulatory conditions, skin health, memory and more.
In short, it benefits virtually your entire body!
Ginger Extract
Used for over 2,500 years in Asia, Ginger has been used to treat nausea and to reduce arthritis pain and inflammation.
It works by decreasing the amount of prostaglandins, which are what cause you to feel arthritis pain. In other words, it does what NSAID’s and prescription arthritis pain meds do, but in the way nature intended it to do so… instead of forcing it and causing side effects!

Found naturally in a variety of plants and fruits, this flavanoid has been shown to have a strong anti-inflammatory effect due to it’s powerful anti-oxidant activity.
Reducing your inflammation leads to changes throughout your entire body.
Changes such as … a reduction of arthritis pain… increased circulation and dozens of other health benefits which ramp up your energy!

Citrus Bioflavanoids
Citrus bioflavanoids aid in the absorption of vitamins and act as important anti-oxidants.
They also inhibit collagenase and elastase, the enzymes responsible for the breakdown of connective tissue.
That way your joints and ligaments stay as healthy as when you were a teenager!
In addition to protecting connective tissues, they also protect against free radical damage.

There are literally over 20,000 research studies available on how glutathione can help your body in everything from cancer prevention to more supple skin.
Glutathione is quite literally THE most important antioxidant in your body.
The benefits of increased glutathione are virtually endless, since glutathione is the antioxidant that controls ALL other antioxidants in your body.
It is the ONLY antioxidant in your body that has the ability to eliminate ALL free radicals, not just specific types!

Mojave Yucca (root)
The Mojave Yucca root has more benefits than you could shake a stick at!
These improvements in your health include migraine relief… decreased blood pressure, cholesterol and triglycerides…better digestion… reduction of muscle spasms… improved blood circulation… treating various skin conditions… healing wounds… and it even promotes shiny and healthy hair.
