Why take pills if you can eat these 11 everyday foods that can help cure most common illnesses? See what kind of foods you can eat to cure these illnesses: #1 MUSCLE ACHE The Solution: Tart cherries—one cup, or two glasses of juice, daily, before and during exercise The Science: Contains the same anti-inflammatory enzymes as ibuprofen, without the potential kidney and stomach-related side effects. #2 MEMORY LOSS The Solution: Sunflower seeds—a quarter cup daily The Science: These vitamin E-loaded seeds will protect the neurons in your brain from oxidative stress, which means you keep your memory longer. #3 WEAR MUSCLES The Solution: Apples—one daily The Science: Leave the peel on—it’s full of ursolic acid, which fuels the production of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF1) and insulin, two hormones important in building muscle. #4 LACK OF FOCUS The Solution: Eggs—one daily The Science: Eggs are packed with choline, a nutrient that boosts the brain’s ability to relay commands to the rest of your body while also maintaining the structure of your brain’s cell membranes. #5 AGING SKIN The Solution: Oranges—one daily, or six ounces of juice The Science: Vitamin C helps your body make collagen, the protein that keeps skin elastic. #6 DEPRESSION The Solution: Brown rice—one cup of cooked rice daily The Science: Carbs help regulate the production of serotonin, a key neurotransmitter in controlling mood and suppressing anxiety. A complex carb like brown rice will give you the best high-carb-low-cal combo. #7 INSOMNIA The Solution: Chicken—four ounces daily The Science: Tryptophan is often associated with turkey, but chicken contains more of the amino acid that helps the body produce the sleep-friendly hormone melatonin. #8 PUFFY EYES The Solution: Green tea—one cup daily, after a meal The Science: The puffiness that creates dark circles under your eyes is often caused by fluid retention. Green tea is a diuretic that’ll reduce unwanted swelling all over your body. #9 UPSET STOMACH The Solution: Peppermints—one or two after dinner The Science: Peppermint has long been associated with aiding digestion and has also been shown to soothe inflammatory pain in the gastrointestinal tract. Peppermint tea also works. #10 LOW ENERGY The Solution: Bananas—one daily The Science: The potassium-packed fruit is also a great source of magnesium, a key element in producing and storing energy. #11 ANXIETY The Solution: Peanuts—a quarter cup daily The Science: If you’re not producing enough gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), your brain is more prone to let anxiety run wild.
