Tomatoes are widely known for their outstanding antioxidant content, including, of course, their oftentimes-rich concentration of lycopene. Intake of tomatoes has long been linked to heart health. Fresh tomatoes and tomato extracts have been shown to help lower total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides. In addition, tomato extracts have been shown to help prevent unwanted clumping together (aggregation) of platelet cells in the blood - a factor that is especially important in lowering risk of heart problems like atherosclerosis.

Furthermore, tomatoes can increase digestion, stimulate blood circulation, improve fluid balance, protect the kidneys, detoxify the body, prevent premature aging, and reduce inflammation and related conditions.

Another proven fact is that it gives our skin a healthy glow and it adds flavor to many dishes. So indulge with more servings of tomatoes in your salads, pastas and even your smoothies.

WELLNESS WEDNESDAY: MAGNESIUM You may know what magnesium is, but do you know how important the mineral can be for your health? In this week's Wellness Wednesday, our health gurus at Bali Buda Café & Health Food Shops chat us through WHY we should incorporate magnesium-rich foods into our daily diet and HOW - with a yummy smoothie recipe.. Magnesium is involved with over 300 metabolic processes in our bodies, leading to the mineral being called the ‘master mineral’. So what exactly does it mean to have a magnesium deficiency, and what are some magnesium deficiency symptoms? Magnesium is necessary for the proper transportation of calcium across cell membranes. Why? Calcium needs other nutrients that help get calcium into bone matter. Those other nutrients are silica, vitamin D, vitamin K, and, magnesium. Excessive calcium intake has been linked to heart health issues by staying in the blood long enough to calcify into arterial plaque. Some researchers claims that that excess calcium is a large part of this magnesium deficiency epidemic and that it contributes to so many health issues. Here’s why… While we don’t get enough magnesium, many of us get too much calcium. Calcium is added to many processed foods, dairy or dairy alternatives and even orange juice. When calcium levels in the body become too high, calcification can occur. Each cell in the body has a sodium:potassium pump that regulates the balance of minerals inside and outside the cells. Magnesium deficiency keeps this pump from working correctly. With too much calcium, the ratios are skewed, and the pump allows too much calcium into the cells. When there is too little magnesium, even more calcium is allowed into the cells. Here are some signs of a magnesium deficiency: • Calcium deficiency • Poor heart health • Weakness • Muscle cramps • Tremors • Nausea • Anxiety • High blood pressure • Type II diabetes • Respiratory issues • Dizziness • Fatigue • Potassium deficiency • Difficulty swallowing • Poor memory • Confusion For those of us living close to the beach here in Bali, swimming on the ocean salt water is a great was to absorb magnesium. You can also supplement but If you don’t want to supplement and simply want to acquire magnesium through food sources, here are a few foods that can relieve you of any magnesium deficiency symptoms: • Dark leafy greens • Pumpkin seeds • Sunflower seeds • Soybeans • Black beans • Cashews • Squash • Sesame seeds • Almonds • Okra • Fish • Avocado • Bananas • Dark Chocolate • Dates To boost your daily dose of magnesium try the super green superfood smoothie at any Bali Buda cafe, or the green goddess soup. (Pssst! Coming soon is a Bali Buda Mega Magnesium Mint Slice Smoothie. Yum!!) You can also make your own mega magnesium smoothie at home with local organic ingredients purchased from Bali Buda. GU-IT-YOURSELF: MEGA MAGNESIUM SMOOTHIE For this super magnesium rich smoothie, blend the following ingredients in a high-powered blender. • 5 bananas (fresh or frozen) • 1/2 bunch of fresh kale • 1/2 bunch of fresh spinach • 1 Tablespoon of moringa powder • 4 dates • 1.5 – 2 cups of purified water or fresh coconut water This magnesium-rich smoothie provides you with about 240 milligrams of magnesium and serves 1-2 people. Yummy.
