Ingredients That Can Be Helpful and Healthful

I have been thinking about writing a blog about the ingredients that people can take to help them to be well physically. I'll write a few things here as they come to mind. Feel free to send in comments on ideas that you have on ingredients people can take in order to gain health.

1. Natural antibiotics - garlic, oil of oregano, colloidal silver
2. Beneficial oils - Olive oil, coconut oil
3. Probiotics - Fermented food, yogurt, kefir, kombucha,
4. Superfoods - walnuts, blueberries
5. Supplements - fish oil, vitamin D3, COQ10, 
6. Other ingredients - glutathione, CLA, apricot kernels
7. Meats/Fish - Grass fed beef, Red salmon

There are quite a few more things and as I remember them, I will write them in. I will also expound on them at a later date.
  One other thing that is not really something to be listed, as much as something to be noted; Food in America has undergone genetic modification (GMO) and as a result, much of the food produced in this country has little nutritional value left in it. Engineers develop seeds using genetic modification in order to make food look or taste a certain way. It also enables more food to be grown. Basically, it makes a way for the food industry to provide food for all the companies that are under them. It fails to take into consideration, the fact that there are certain things that are necessary for the result of food to be nourishing and beneficial to the consumer. It benefits the companies that utilize the industrialization of food, but not the people who are eating it.
  Here is an interesting fact; I have heard this a couple of times recently; people who have an intolerance to gluten, can eat bread while in another country. One person explained that she could eat bread while she was in Italy, but not here in America. The same is true for a person who visited Brazil. Do you know why this is? I don't have any test results from this, but I can only imagine that people can eat bread from other countries, because the wheat grown in other countries is not genetically modified. That is the possible reason people in America suffer from leaky gut syndrome as well. This is just my opinion based on what I have recently heard and learned about.
