Healthy tips to improve our lives
Here we summarize some of the most interesting issues:
1. Take a glass of orange juice (or even more) daily.
In this way we will double or increase the iron in our body.
2. Coffee with cinnamon.
It is proven that taking half a teaspoon of cinnamon a day can help us to keep our cholesterol levels considered normal, and to regulate our blood sugar levels.

As we know, wholemeal bread is a food rich in fiber, zinc and iron. If we eat its bark, it contains pronylysina , which encourages enzymes to fight colon cancer.

According to the Institute of Food Research, apparently if we chew vegetables longer we increase the amount of anticancer chemicals released in the body.
5. Adopt the 80% rule.
It consists of leaving approximately 20% of the food on the plate. As has been noted, by not eating as much as we usually eat at each meal (especially in those who are overweight), we would avoid gastrointestinal disorders, lose weight, avoid diabetes and prolong our lives.
6. Take more oranges a day.
Reduces the likelihood of lung cancer by 30%.
7. Eat tomatoes daily or sometimes a week.
The tomato has lycopene , an antioxidant that is believed to inhibit and even reverse the growth of tumors.

Doing puzzles, the well-known sudoku or simply reading can stimulate our mind, in such a way that we will also help strengthen our memory.
