  • Garlic - Boosts our natural supply of hydrogen sulfide which acts as an antioxidant and transmits cellular signals that relax blood vessels and increase blood flow.  Protects against various cancers, including breast, prostate and colon cancer.   Cooking Tip: Many home chefs mistakenly cook garlic immediately after crushing or chopping it, added Dr. Kraus. To maximize the health benefits, you should crush the garlic at room temperature and allow it to sit for about 15 minutes. That triggers an enzyme reaction that boosts the healthy compounds in garlic.  While individual reactions to garlic vary, eating fennel seeds helps to neutralize the smell.  http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/10/15/unlocking-the-benefits-of-garlic/ 

  • Lemon Juice - Alkaline in the body, antibacterial, vitamin A. Natural vitamin C is much more effective than the synthetic one. Vitamin C of lemon-juice is very effective because it is combined with bioflavonoids (vitamin P). In addition to Vitamin C, lemon also contains niacin and thiamin i http://www.earthincommon.com/nutrition_01-article.html

  • Red (Cayenne) Pepper - The "hotness" produced by cayenne is caused by its high concentration of a capsaicin.
