You might have heard the cliched saying that claims you are what you eat. Observations are proving that there may be a bit of truth to this tired saying. There are superfoods that actually look like the parts of your body they help.
Carrots for Eyes
Cut a slice of a carrot and it is plain to see how the vegetable looks like an eye. Features of your eye are mimicked in the rings of the carrot. Carrots aid eye health with antioxidants and beta-carotene found in the orange vegetable.
Walnuts for Brains
A whole walnut closely resembles the human brain. It even has hemispheres much the way the brain does. Walnuts are rich in omega-3 which is purported to heighten brain functions.
Celery for Bones
Long stalks of celery mimic the look of your bones. Celery ironically has the same sodium composition as your bones. The stalks contain silicon, important for bone strength.
Avocado for the Uterus
This green delight contains folic acid, an essential vitamin for the reproductive system. Ironically, or maybe not, avocados have the same light bulb type shape as the uterus.
Clams for Testicles
There is no need to describe this resemblance. The interesting part is that they are full of zinc and folic acid, essential for sperm health.
Grapefruits for Breast
Grapefruits come in several sizes before you shrug off this comparison. The limonoids contained in the fruit have shown to inhibit the growth of cancerous cells in breast tissue.
Tomatoes for the Heart
There are some tomatoes that look like hearts from the outside, but it is the interior chambers that really resemble the heart. Lycopene, found in tomatoes, reduces the risk of heart disease.
Ginger for the Stomach
The twisted root has parts that definitely look like the stomach. The root is famous for alleviating nausea.
