Apricot Nutrients and Health Benefits

Apricot FruitI love eating fresh sweet apricots. Another reason I love apricots is because they are very healthy. Some people get confused between apricots and peaches. Apricots are smaller, less fuzzy and their kernels (or seeds) have a smooth shell. Peaches on the other hand are larger than apricots, and they have much fuzzier skin and their seeds have a really thick and veiny shell. In this article I’ll be talking mainly about apricots, but if you want to read about peaches, then go to this article called “Peaches Nutrients and Benefits“.

Binomial name of apricots is Prunus Armeniaca from the family of Rosaceae. In Russian language apricot is called Aбрикос, you can pronounce it like this Abreekoss, or something like that ;) Some people believe that apricots are native fruits of Armenia, because of its scientific name Prunus Armeniaca which means Armenian Plum.

Nutrients and Health Benefits of Jews Ear Mushroom

Jew's Ear MushroomToday’s post is going to be about a mushroom with a funny name called Jew’s Ear. Some people call it Jelly Ear, Pepeao, Ear Fungus, Chinese Fungus, Pig’s Ear, Wood Ear, Tree Ear, Kikurage, or Binomially speaking Auricularia auricula-judae. This mushroom is edible and it usually grows on some kind of dead or living woods, especially on Elder Trees. People call this mushroom a Jew’s Ear because it was formerly called Judas Ear. Why? Because some people believe that Judas Iscariot, after betraying Jesus Christ The Son of God, hanged himself from an Elder Tree and his spirit came back as a mushroom. Well, since this mushroom grows mostly on an Elder Tree and it looks like an ear, then some people decided that it should be called Judas Ear which later on became known as a Jew’s Ear. The part where Judas betrayed Jesus Christ is totally true, but the spirit of Judas coming back as a mushroom is not true. Some cultures and countries use Jew’s Ear mushroom for food and/or as a medicine, but others complain about the side effects of this mushroom and stay away from it. In China it is very popular to eat a soup that contains Jew’s Ear mushroom, especially when someone has a cold or a fever. The Nutrients in a cup or 99 grams of Raw Jew’s Ear Mushroom are: Continue reading

Acerola Nutrients and Benefits

acerolaI really like this particular post about this particular fruit. I don’t even think that it should be called any other name then Extreme Amount of Vitamin C. The real name for this very awesome small fruit is Acerola. So far and as far as I know this cute little fruit contains the most amount of vitamin C in it then any other fruit in the world. In fact, just one whole Raw Acerola Fruit (weighs about 5 grams) contains about 133% of Daily Value per one serving, and just one cup of Raw Acerola fruits (weighs about 98 grams) contains about 2740% of Daily Value per one serving. Now, is that insane or what, no, it is awesome dudes. The only bad part about this fruit is that you don’t even hear about it in the USA and I haven’t seen it in stores. If you want to be able to get this Acerola fruits constantly then you need to be somewhere around the places where people can grow them, and that is in India, Brazil, Bahia, Peru, Mexico, Caribean, and maybe in southern Texas USA. Other names that you could hear people reffering to this fruit are like Malpighia Glabra, Barbados Cherry, West Indian Cherry, and Wild Crapemyrtle. People say that Acerola tastes sweet and at the same time sour too. Sometimes you could get a nice sweet one, but the ones that taste more sour it leave your mouth with a more tarty taste. The Size of Acerola fruit is about the size of a nice large Cherry. The Acerola fruit or berry (some people refer to it as a berry) grows on a small tree or a fruit shrub. Here is the full list of Nutrients in about a cup of Raw Acerola Fruits:
– Vitamin A
– Vitamin B1, Thiamin
– Vitamin B2, Riboflavin
– Vitamin B3, Niacin
– Vitamin B5, Pantothenic Acid
– Vitamin B9, Folate
– Vitamin C (EXTREME amount)
– Calcium
– Iron
– Magnesium
– Phosphorus
– Potassium
– Zinc
– Copper
– Selenium
– Protein
– Calories
– Carbohydrates
– Dietary Fiber
– Natural Fats

The List of benefits is not too big because only Vitamin C is extremely high in this Acerola Fruit and the rest of the nutrients are in extremely low amounts, but either way here is the list of benefits for Acerola Fruit:
– Improves Healing of Wounds
– Protects from Frequent Colds
– Protects from Frequent Infections
– Lowers chance of Lung Problems
