This plant, not only adorns the edge of ones garden, but it also hides an additional value. Sunroot is one of the best sources of fiber due to the presence of oligo-saccharide inulin.

Latvian rural beetroot contains a rich dose of nitrate and iron. Beet juice, with its increased upper nitrate saturation, has become the chosen product by many world-class athletes and other sports activity representatives. You wonder why? Nitrates are organic Nitrogen (N) and Oxygen (O) compounds found in the products people use for nutrition, as well as in many other places in nature. When intaking foods rich with nitrates, our body transforms them into Nitric Oxide, which then serves as "blood pressure regulator". Meaning that the blood pressure decreases and oxygen is being supplied to the actively used body parts.
“An apple a day keeps the doctor away" - an old Welsh saying. Apple is a fruit of summer and autumn, growing within our latitude. Apples may not have the highest levels of minerals and vitamins, but its greatest value lies within the antioxidants and fluvanoids contained. Apples are especially rich in the antioxidant quercetin, which has proven itself in numerous medical studies as an excellent enemy of breast and prostate cancer, Alzheimer's disease and different neurological diseases. It is not for nothing that the apple is described in the Bible, in fairy tales, and is also known as the fruit of youth and health.
Root vegetable that is very well known within our latitude. Many of us, fore sure, remember how back in childhood grandma used to give carrots to keep healthy teeth and eyes.

Magical and curative plant - its leaves, seeds and berries have been used by our ancestors in ancient folk medicine, as well as toady for the preparation of modern medicine. What really lies within the little dark berry?
Black currant contains a large amount of vitamin C, which helps to prevent the general wellbeing. However, the main answer is in one small substance, called gamma-linolenic acid or GLA (gamma-linolenic acid). It is found in black currant nectar and a mixture of omega fatty acids in black currant seeds. Multiple scientific-clinical studies of the effects of black currants related to human immune system have revealed that this small gamma-linolenic acid is capable of telling our immune system to fight and overcome both viral diseases and bacterial inflammation.
